Accessories: How to Make Wedding Veil Work With Hairstyle?

Q:

I've already chosen a wedding veil, but it doesn't work with the wedding hairstyle I've decided upon. What do I do?

A:

When considering wedding hairstyle and veil options brides often ask this question: which comes first, the hairstyle or the wedding veil? Many dresses are sold with a matching veil -- usually the wedding veil highlights details of the wedding dress. What you need to do is find a headpiece (comb, small tiara, headband, floral wreath, etc.) that complements your hairstyle, and work on attaching to it the veil you already have. Talk to a salesperson at the shop where you bought the veil; she may be able to reconfigure what you've bought so you won't have to start from scratch.
