    @missjonesy:  Yes, I’m having the crown instead of the veil.

    You can easily wear a veil. Not a very big one (yours sounds fine) though. Use 2-3 small single hair pins that are pushed in delicately. They can hold the veil in place until you take it off (with help). You can put the pins either above or below where the flowers are being held. Your best bet is to have your veil or a makeshift one available for when you go for a hair trial to see what the stylist says. I see no problem with a easy/quick pin veil working with your hair style and flower crown.

    You can even consider a drop veil. It does not require anything to hold it in place. It sits on top of your hair. I think these look romantic and beautiful. I’ll post pictures soon, of different ideas you can consider for your veil/headpiece.

    Ugh, this is something I have been debating about for MONTHS. There are some very pretty pictures I have found online of brides with both veils and flower crowns:
    This is my favorite because I love blushers:

    This one is pretty too, but the veil is just attached to the back:
     
    My biggest dillema personally is that I love drop veils and want a blusher, but I don’t see any way that the drop veil can be lifted without lifting the crown, which seems like too much work to do in the ceremony. I can’t find any pictures of what it would look like to have the veil lifted over the crown.

    Were you wanting to wear a blusher?

    The brides in this wedding and this other wedding had veils over their crowns of flowers, and I think it looks so romantic. The look is extremely vintage, but I think it could still work with a non-vintage/rustic theme. 

    ETA pics!

    @missjonesy: If you want both get both!! I wore a haku because I am Hawaiian but I still wanted a veil.  I wore them both but in the outdoor pics I just wore the haku it was nice. 🙂

    @Mrs Christopher:  I’m usually not big on flower crowns at all (probably because I’m biased lol) buuuut I love your haku and your bouquet. I’m going to pass on a veil and go for flowers like a lot of the halaus wear during Merrie Monarch.
