Wearing a veil on your wedding day and not sure on your hairstyle? We have you covered. There are so many hairstyles, accessories and veils to choose from so let us narrow down your choice with these gorgeous veil and wedding hairstyle combinations.
For medium to short hair you could style with side curls intertwining through to the back, frame it with a veil placed mid-low in the back of your hairstyle and accessorise it with a headband or vine like our Anna vine (shown below). If you decide you don't want a veil to the back and want to wear your hair down with loose curls you can still out for a birdcage veil, like shown below with our Eliza veil .
If you like a voluminous down style, you could go for a birdcage that has the added element of an embellished band attached, this is so easy to put on and stays in place. See our Abigails Birdcage/headband (shown below) in more detail. If you want a relaxed up-style or messy chignon and would rather embellish your veil, then a piece like the Lorraine comb (shown below) could be for you, it attaches and detaches from the veil comb, a versatile light applique piece. See more of these kind of applique pieces here.
Real bride (below) Nimah's dramatic waves are to die for, this style is suitable for long or short hair, placing your veil in the middle of your style or high on the head. See our Ceara veil if this style is for you. Nimah wore our Bella earrings on her wedding day.
Taking inspiration from Meghan Markle, the humble tendrils are back and bigger than ever. Two long face-framing pieces, curled away from the face is all you need to turn a basic hairstyle into a contemporary look. Style these tendrils up with a Sparkly style drop earring. Real bride Natasha (above) chose our Jodie earrings, see them here. Natasha wore her Veil under her hairstyle, this is quite a romantic look and does not mess your hairstyle if you decide to take it out.
If you have a fringe you can roll and volumise it, style it with a low chignon and a catherdral tulle veil like our Zinnia veil shown above. Real bride Vicky opted for side plait weaved into a styled up-style and double elbow veil like our Camden veil. Vicky wore our Jodie earrings.
Lots of hairstyle and veil combinations to choose from. See our full Veil Collection.
Anyone who has planned a wedding will tell you that there is a lot to think about, whatever time of year you choose for it to take place. But if the run-up to your wedding or even the big day itself are happening in the midst of the corona virus outbreak, you might be wondering what you should do to prepare (if that is even possible!) and plan for the potential that your wedding will in some way be affected.
Right now, whether you’re planning a wedding at home or abroad, there are countless moving parts surrounding COVID-19 and since this situation is fluid, what it means for your wedding, specifically, really depends on your wedding date.
To help you prepare for what you should do—and help you if you do sadly have to change plans—we spoke with experts across the industry, including travel consultants and wedding planners, to give you a closer look at how COVID-19 is affecting wedding planning right now, and how to prep for the coming months.
No. 1 - Be prepared
Whenever there is a problem, there is generally a solution, or if you can’t find a solution there is likely an alternative. It sounds very cliched but the best you can do is to keep calm and carry on. All of your guests whether they be family, friends, or colleagues all want to celebrate with you, but at a time that is safe and when you can all enjoy each others company.
No. 2 - Communicate with your vendors
Rather than second guess what your vendors are planning, get in touch with them, discuss worst scenarios and come together to create a game plan.
Choosing your bridal jewellery is one of THE best parts about planning your wedding ensemble and we should know! But there are other accessories that need to be considered in the run-up to the big day, so we have pulled together this guide to make sure you don’t miss anything…
When it comes to shoes comfort is key, remember that you will be wearing these shoes for the majority of the day, you will be standing, walking and dancing, so, go for natural materials, as they are more breathable and will stretch to fit your feet. Also, don’t forget to buy your shoes around the same time as you order your wedding dress. This is very important as your alterations, especially the hem adjustment, will depend on the height of your heel. Buying shoes early on will mean you are ready for all of your fittings and that you have plenty of time to break them in at home.
The timing of your wedding can be a deciding factor on your footwear choice. If you are getting married in winter, you might want a back-up pair of weddingtons (see what we did there!) to avoid the puddles, or if you are having your reception in the summer months you might want a pair of flats or wedges at the ready for walking on grass. In fact, having a back-up pair of flats is always a great idea, just in case!
When it comes to traditions, you can’t fit many more into one occasion than you can on a Wedding day! From the brides choice of a gown to the ceremony itself, the best man's speech, the first dance and the bouquet toss, your big day will be a constant nod to tradition. You might find some of the customs aren't in keeping with the style of your wedding, but when it comes down to bridal jewellery, you'll appreciate many of the old traditions, mainly because the bride comes out of it pretty well, with lots of sparkly options…
It is traditionally the job of the groom or the father-of-the-bride to gift the bride with pearls on the day of her wedding. Pearls are seen as a symbol of perfection, purity and innocence, and it is said that the ancient Greeks believed pearls would help ensure marital bliss and prevent newlywed brides from crying!
When it comes to wedding jewellery there are many, many choices when it comes to pearls. You could opt for a pearl choker, a discreet pearl bracelet, some beautiful earrings or one of our favourites, a pearl headpiece, here is ourGold Leaf and Freshwater Pearl Headpiece, which is a great choice for any bride.
