With most people focusing on the right dress, many forget one of the most important accessories needed to set the wedding dress off, this being the head wear. On many occasions I have seen beautiful brides in gorgeous dresses, but their choice of head wear really didnt do justice to the dress.
Luckily for us, there are many different options for headwear that are unique and also very stunning, compared to that of the normal veil. Lets look at a few of these options.
