landlocked bride® | midwest + mountain west wedding inspiration

plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

The veil I find is an element of a wedding day that often gets overlooked. Some brides cannot wait to wear one while others prefer to skip this tradition. Brides now have a variety of choice as to what type of accessory to put in their hair on their wedding day, but there is something so timeless and romantic about wearing a veil. Whether you choose an elbow length veil with pearl detailing or a long, cathedral length veil with no detail at all, this small accessory can take your breath away; especially with moments captured like the ones below.

From a traditional veil to a flower with a pop of color, there are so many ways to finish your wedding day look from head to toe. What type of hair accessory do you plan to wear for your big day?


This bride is so rockin’ the red hair and she looks HOT.


And, her veil/headpiece is pretty awesome.

Most of you know I’m not a huge veil fan.  However, I am a fan of fun and different headpieces (see flowers, fascinators, etc.).  ban.do has a fantastic line of headbands, and even have a bunch “for the bride.”

I think headbands are a great alternative for you non-veil brides out there.  Check out some of their designs!

Are you wearing a veil, headpiece, flower or something different?

I’m not much of a veil type of girl, but I surely can appreciate a pretty birdcage veil. I love the touch of vintage it can add, but it can be classy and whimsical, too, which makes it so versatile.

Feast your eyes on this beauty (and it definitely helps that this bride is to-die-for beautiful).

The veil just photographs so well!
