To Veil or not to Veil…
Traditionally, all brides wore a wedding veil as they walked down the aisle. Throughout history, the veil was seen as a means of protection for the bride from evil spirits. However, in the modern day, a wedding veil is not seen as a necessity.
If you are struggling to decide whether to wear a veil as you walk down the aisle, you may want to consider similar alternative, such as the Birdcage Veil.
The birdcage veil provides a touch of 1920’s glamour, without covering the entire head or face. Birdcage veils can be customised to your specification, or you are feeling creative, you may even decide to create your own, using a simple head band and netting of your choice.
Only a few years ago, tiaras were the most popular choice for brides to be when it came to hair accessories. Although many brides still opt for these eye catching pieces, some are now looking for something unique to keep the attention on their dress or hair style.
Hair bands work well for multiple reasons, not only do they slide on easily over any hairstyle, ensuring they can be easily placed and removed, without disrupting the bride’s hair, they also serve to keep the chosen hairstyle in place, and work to prevent flyaways. In addition to this, hair bands come in a variety of styles, so you can take your pick from simple, elegant pieces, to intricately detailed band designs.
If you are opting for a very detailed hairstyle, or have a heavily embellished dress, you may want to keep your hair accessories simple. One hair pin may be used to add a touch of sparkle, or multiple pins may be used to create a pattern in the hair.
Artificial Wedding Flowers vs Real Flowers
For some people, this choice may be simple. However, for many, this item is a very difficult one to tick off the wedding day checklist.
Although real wedding flowers come with an undeniably beautiful scent, it is very rare that this will end up permeating the room. Artificial wedding flowers can be kept by the bride or a member of the wedding party as a special reminder of the big day. What’s more, the silk wedding flowers provided by us here at Petals Polly Flowers can be custom made and designed to your exact specification, so you can keep the bouquet you’ve always dreamed of for years to come.
