I bought a traditional veil, but less than two weeks before the wedding changed my mind and ordered a birdcage veil from Etsy.

I fell in love with with a bridal forehead band I found about a year ago.  When I discoevered the accessories company was a division of Claire Pettibone I tried finding similar ones since I knew I likely could not afford it.  I was totally unsuccessful.  I bought a birdcage veil about 3-4 inches wide that goes just across the eyes and has crystal trim on the top and bottom.  Im not on my home computer so no picture to share.  Fast forward a few months and Kim Kardashian wears this thing across her forehead and BOOM! they’re all the damn place.  I was anything but thrilled.  But I do like my little netting across the eyes.

It really depends on your dress and the type of statement you’d want to make.  That will dictate what accessories you choose.

I wore a headband!

I considered a veil but once my hair was done, I didn’t want to add anything else!

I also wore a birdcage veil – my mom kept asking me if I was going to regret not wearing a more traditional veil and I have no regrets! I wore mine all night – for the ceremony it was tilted over my eye/face, and then I moved it out of my face for the reception.

I’m planning on wearing a floral wreath (assuming it looks good with my dress…) I don’t have a pic of everything together yet, but this is similar to the one I made:
