A friend of mine who didn’t wear a veil, wore her hair down and wavy – which is how she wears it every day.

You really could do anything without having a veil. It’d be easier to have fun with updos since there wouldn’t be anything to have the veil pinned in at.

I didn’t wear a veil (outdoor ceremony) and did my hair Like this. It was suggested to me because my hair is super thin and I didn’t want to look bald  with a traditional updo or it to loon uninteresting from any front facing photos.

I didn’t wear a veil- I did it down- kinda big curls with volume with a flower clip. we had a beach wedding- so it was more casual down.

My hair was half up, with loose waves and a small fishtail braid. I wore a thin flower crown.

I am planning on either doing a half up and down do or just having a up do for my wedding. I am not wearing a veil so instead I purchase these flower hair clips to put in my hair.

Here are just a few inspiration that I thought were so pretty just so you can get an idea of what kid of style you might like. You could have flower pins in your hair, a hair comb, or even a head band or tiara in place of a veil. 

The first picture are my hair clips that I bought.

Half up and down do with a braid.

or a braided up do

Side sweep hair style

A pretty hair up do

FutureMrsJLB:  I had a veil for the ceremony, but took it off for the reception and wore a fun feathery clip- it had some sparkle and was jsut that- fun.  I almost went with a pretty brooch similar to a PP, but it was too much with the veil so I opted against it.  I dont have pix on hand, but i wore clip in extensions  since my hair is super thin (got them at sally beauty) with the intent of wearing it all down, but due to rain on wedding day, I opted to toss it all to the side with some pretty curls and twists.  My dress was strapless just fyi.  If i had straps I probably would have worn hair up.
