Bridal Fascinators & Veil Alternatives

Brides are donning chic fascinators, hatlets, chapeaus, and hairpieces now more than ever.  Call it the european influence or the Kate Middleton effect, either way, fascinators are a glamorous and chic way to make a statement on your wedding day?  Want a little history?  Check out our previous post "What is a Fascinator" for a little lesson.

We love their chic look and versatility.  Wear one for the entire day or stick to a traditional veil for the ceremony and switch to a petite hatlet or chapeau for the reception.  Since fascinators are gaining popularity with brides and wedding guests alike, the options available continue to grow.  Pick out a sweet piece designed by one of our designers like Sara Gabriel, Laura Jayne Bridal, Haute Bride, or custom create something unique just for you.  The possibilities are endless!  Here are some of our newest favorites...above, the over sized Aubrey Flower, $135, by Sara Gabriel in white is perfect for the bride or in black for the wedding guest.

This new French Tulle and Flower combination is perfect in place of a longer veil.  Bride's Head Revisited Leila Birdcage, $300.

Perfect for bride or bridesmaids, Betz, $72, is available with black or natural pale ivory flowers.

One of my favorite cocktail hats, the Lulu Chapeau, $98.

Don't think you can pull off a fascinator as wedding guest?  Of course you can!  As long as you stay away from white, ivory, and French Tulle, you'll have no problem.

Need proof?  That's me above in a petite pink vintage fascinator at a friend's July 2009 wedding in St. Charles, Illinois.
