What's new & chic in alternative wedding veils?

Are you in the market for something a little different in a wedding veil? Sure you could snag a cool wedding hat, an elaborate headpiece, or a sleek and stylish crown, but sometimes you want the grandeur of a VEIL. A birdcage, a flowing cathedral, a flowery crown with tulle… but with a twist!

I found some gorgeous doozies with colors, vintage elements, dip dyes, embroidery, stars, custom words(!), and just tons of rad and unexpected details. Here are some of my favorite alternative wedding veils…

A stunning black dress, tattoos, and skulls everywhere at this chic and dark wedding

Aaron and Kryssa wanted a personalized wedding that matched their dark and alternative style. Aaron rocked his red Doc Marten boots and he and his crew traveled to the ceremony location by bicycle as they love to ride to bikes. There were skulls, ink, deep red details, and a super fab black gown and purple hair.

Just wait until you see their choreographed dance!

A fabulous retro drive-in meets cocktail party prom

There wasn't a real theme for the wedding, other than "Let's Duerr It," based on our last name. It was our URL, hashtag, and was prominently displayed in large balloons on stage. One friend had made the comment that she felt like she was at a prom, "in the best possible way." We got married at an old drive-in hot dog stand called Superdawg, where we had one of our first dates. Our friends Kate and Pete chauffeured us in their '61 Lincoln Continental and the officiant was our friend Louie. The guest list was about 15 people (plus our dog, Stanley) and the ceremony lasted about five minutes.

Beaches, bunnies, & a first performance at this youth hostel wedding in England

Nicola & Lewis’ laid-back beach wedding quite literally rocked with live music, their pet bunny, hot chocolate and marshmallows, fire pits, and so much more. The setting was the Yorkshire coastline which somehow transported us to what looked like a tropical location but was actually a destination wedding at the Boggle Hole, just south of Whitby in England.

Nicola and Lewis got married on the beach in front of their friends and family, they played a song together in place of a first dance, before heading to their reception at the pirate-themed youth hostel, the Boggle Hole YHA.
