I will be 40 when we get married and I am iffy about wearing a tiara or other bridal hair accessories because of my age. I am definitely not wearing a veil. What is everyone doing with their hair? Mine is chin length and I wear hair bands well but I don’t know…

I definitely think you could get away with something in your hair. Hair flowers look amazing on everyone! I think you could also do an embellished head band too. I would avoid a tiara unless it is more like a headband style one, just because I think tiaras look a little dated nowadays. But honestly, don’t be afraid to wear something cute in your hair. I think anybody can pull off a little something. I am not wearing a veil either simply because we are technically already married and this is just our big wedding with family and friends. I feel weird getting too traditional. Good luck to you!!

This is what I have – my theme is vintage and I’m not wearing a veil (I’m 40). I’m thinking a messy up-do with this hairpiece.

Oh I like what you are all wearing! I wouldn’t go with a tiara unless it is really small and is more of a headband either it just seems to princessy to me.

I’m also thinking about a headband or just a flower (definitely no veil). I have short, wavy (read messy) hair, but I’m thinking I’ll blow it out straight for the wedding (looks really cute when the hairdresser does it, I just don’t have the patience). Have to see what it looks like with a headband, though.
Since FH is from Hawai’i, we’re planning on getting leis for the wedding, and I also entertained the idea of wearing one of the leis that goes on your head (think it’s called a haku lei?), but it seems a bit much. Although with short hair, it’d definitely work.

I wore a veil really low, under my updo, along with a flower… I didn’t want the “innocent bride” look of a high veil, but I liked it as more of an accessory. Here you can just slightly see it …

I will be 51 on our wedding day, and my kids are expecting me to wear a veil because I have never had a real wedding. I am also going to wear some pearl and crystal pins that my daughter has made for me. Wear something that you feel comfortable wearing. Don’t let others’ dictate your look. I got used to the veil idea after I tried a few on. It really completes my look.

@soon2beMrsGP: Love that headband!
@Ms_Smitten: I think you could get away with anything that isn’t a tiara, really. I’ll be a couple months shy of 30 by my wedding, and I think of them as little girly, dressup, something teen girls wear for thier quinceanera, high school prom queen, etc. (no offense to those who like them!). I love the romantic, elegant look of flowers in the hair- I’m going with that, minus the veil as well 🙂

i actually love tiaras but wont be wearing one. i will be 51 when i get married, and its my 2nd time around and wore the whole white dress and tiara the first time around. but i am stll wearing a killer champaigne gold dress, and as we are getting married in Turkey on the beach, i think a flower on the side, or maybe something like Lauren810c is wearing above. i like sparkley hair things, and it would match my brooch bouquet too.

@Ms_Smitten: I was 39 on our wedding day and wore a veil during the ceremony. I had two, beautiful mini-floral “blingy” hairclips in my hair as well that I purchased from an artist on Etsy.
