Alternative Headpieces

Armen Asadorian Photography

Traditionally, it’s all about the veil. Today, some brides are knocking tradition and selecting alternative yet fashionable headpieces to accompany their dream dresses. Floral crowns, for example, are becoming mainstays of bohemian and outdoor weddings. These organic halos can be homemade or outsourced—either through your florist or another company—and can include any combination of flowers, leaves or other botanic materials. If you’re aiming for a more sophisticated, less free-love bridal look, consider a headband. Headbands are a modern alternative to veils and offer variety. Some common headband details include lace, flowers, rhinestones and other jewelry, beading and tulle. Petite birdcage veils can also make a great addition to a sleek headband. If simple is more your style, you can’t go wrong with a lovely brooch or clip—two looks that never go out of style.

Couples are inviting guests to kick up their feet in posh lounges. Whether they consist of sleek modern couches or cozy vintage loveseats, wedding lounges are all about the accessories. From custom pillows and romantic curtains to rustic tables and distressed books, these seating areas have become even more welcoming than your typical living room. A stylish way to rest those dancing feet, lounges give everyone a chance to sit back, relax and mingle the night away.
