    My friend had a headband like that with a low bun. She wore a cathedral veil tucked into the top part of her bun until the reception. Then she went veiless. It was gorgeous.

    I wore a headband and veil together. I was really worried about it, googled the crap out of it, asked about it… and overwhelming response was they looked great together. I wore both for the first look/ceremony and then took the veil off for the reception. Mine was MUCH bigger/blingier than yours, and I loved it. I’m so glad I wore the headband.

    My hair is very dark and it just sort of all blended together without the headband. I definitely loved having a veil too, very bridal feeling. And soooo pretty in photos.

    Don’t have any pro pics yet, but here are a couple a friend took:

    Jsyk, I am very particular about combining too many accessories. I think a veil + headband can look pretty and not at all OTT (esp. with a drop veil, Juliet cap, blusher/birdcage, or boho headpiece).

    Here’re some lovely inspiration photos:

    @MiraJo:  I dont think the veil and headband would work against each other. The veil can be taken off the moment the ceremony is over and then you still have the headband look you are going for.

    I wore my hair down with a crystal headband.  I wore a veil and stuck the comb in right under the headband.

    I think as long as the veil sits towards the back of your head, it’ll look fine.

    I think it’s a great idea. That headband isn’t too over the top it’s very subtle and pretty. Go for it!

    I’m looking to do this as well, only I have NO HAIR at all (I have a pixie cut) so we’ll see if it looks funny. I won’t know till December when I put the veil and the headband on together. If all else fails I wear the veil down the aisle and the headband at the reception.

    @MiraJo:  no I wore something similar it was a tiara if you wear a two layer veil it can go just behind the veil and it will cover your face
