Bridal headpieces and Non-Veiled Inspiration

By  |  12 Comments

As you know, February is not only the month of valentines, but a celebration of styles that I heart.  What better way to bring the week to a close, than by sharing some eye-catching wedding “bling” with a global twist?

For the bride who opts out of the western veil over which she might trip or get an eyelash caught in, here are some sexy fusion alternatives:

From African and Middle Eastern Glam…

For a cute alternative to the birdcage veil, below are examples of  two lace and jewel inspired “cages” that can really make a statement.  Not only do they frame your face for the perfect portrait, they are also super stylish and chic.

As we head east, don’t you just love these jeweled pieces with a hint of eastern Europe and Asia? It’s all about the tear drop pearl, dazzling stones and beaded details.

And finally, a celebration of western European folklore and fantasy.
