Statement Bridal Bow with Veil

If you're looking for something different, why not try an unconventional approach?For those who want to make a statement with their hair adornments, the next option is for you.

The statement bow is a bold and playful way to style your wedding veil, and is sure to turn heads. To create this look, start by selecting a veil with a simple and understated design. Then, choose a wide ribbon or fabric in a complementary color or pattern. Tie the ribbon or sash into a large bow and attach it to the top of your veil. You can position the bow at the back of your head, or to the side for a more dramatic effect.

Sleek Low Bun with Cascade Drop Veil

The sleek pulled back low bun paired with minimal makeup and a drop veil creates an elegant and sophisticated bridal look. This timeless hairstyle and makeup combination exudes a sense of effortless beauty and complements a wide range of wedding styles, from traditional to modern.

Starting with the hair, the sleek pulled back low bun offers a clean and polished aesthetic. The hair is smoothly gathered at the nape of the neck, creating a neat and structured bun. The sleekness of the style adds a touch of sophistication, while the low placement of the bun adds an aura of high fashion. The simplicity of the hairstyle allows the bride's natural beauty to shine through, highlighting her facial features and any additional accessories she may choose to wear. 

To complement the sleek bun, minimal makeup is applied to enhance the bride's natural features. Completing the ensemble is a drop veil, a classic bridal accessory that is characterized by its multi-layered design, creating a cascading effect.

A cascade veil typically consists of two or more layers of fabric that vary in length, creating a tiered effect.

Traditional Mantilla Veil with Sultry High Slit Gown

Combining a traditional mantilla veil with a sexy slit gown creates a captivating and alluring bridal look that merges classic tradition with modern sensuality. Why not mix tradition and modern!

Opt for a traditional mantilla veil crafted from delicate lace. Instead of positioning it in the traditional way towards the front of the bride, this bride placed it further back for a more alternative and fashion-forward look. 

Select a gown that embraces a sultry and sophisticated aesthetic. Look for a gown with a thigh-high or daringly high slit or a back-baring style that shows just enough skin to keep them guessing. And if you have a tattoo, show it off like this daring bride!

This combo of a traditional mantilla veil with a sultry high slit gown allows you to embrace both classic and contemporary elements, creating a unique and unforgettable bridal look.

Minimalist Stud Earrings with Scattered Pearl Long Veil

More isn't always more! I am seeing brides go super simple with their bridal jewelry and accessories. For those seeking a minimalist style with a touch of elegance, consider opting for ultra-simple stud earrings and a matching scattered pearl veil.

The bride chose elegant small drop pearl earrings and a long veil adorned with delicate pearls artfully scattered across it. The pearls add a subtle and refined detail to the overall aesthetic.

The bonus is that a pair of simple stud earrings is appropriate even post-wedding, making it suitable for various occasions and parties.
