Vintage Veil Hat Vs Headband – Which One To Choose?
Choosing between a vintage veil and a vintage headband is a difficult decision. Vintage accessories are not only fun to wear, but they look absolutely chic and classy. When choosing to have a vintage wedding party look, there are a number of designer wedding veils that come in the form of hats and headbands. Read on to help you decide which vintage veil will look best on your wedding day.
Headbands were popular with vintage brides back in the day. Usually beige and ivory in color, these plain bands connected to a sheer ivory veil. Headbands are a great wedding accessory because they hold the hair back and in place all evening. They also complement a variety of hairstyles and look authentic in wedding party pictures featuring vintage dresses and vintage bridesmaid dresses. Another great thing about wearing a vintage veil on a headband is the fact that the headband itself is the only accessory you need for your hair and upper half. Many headbands also attach to short, netted veils that are short and fall to the chin, creating a blusher effect. They can easily be removed or pushed upward to kiss the bride and to expose her face.
Vintage hats also look interesting and antiquated on brides to be. Many vintage hats sit tightly on the head and have tiny, short veils that fall in front of the face, creating a blusher effect. The hats popularly tilt to the side and are usually adorned with flowers or feather embellishments.
If a hat is out of your personal comfort level, opt for a birdcage veil. These veils can be attached to bridal fascinators, and sit at the top or side of the head, like a hat; and house a tiny netted veil. The veils are available in various lengths and fall to the eyes, nose, or chin.
Vintage veils and headbands look especially chic and appropriate when worn on a vintage style dress. Dresses composed of lace or with lace sleeves boast vintage appeal, as do A-line silhouettes featured in beige satin.
Longer veils will complement formal vintage dresses, while shorter veils enhance short sheath or A-line vintage dresses.
Veils featured on headbands or hats can not only be sheer but embellished. Pearls, lace, and bows are popular vintage accents that will also enhance your vintage chic wedding day look.
