A bit of inspiration from a fun, alternative bridal photoshoot : )

By ClayBouquetShop

I have planned to include alternative brides in my advertising for awhile, and finally had the opportunity to include models willing to have fun with this idea earlier this year. Here are some photos to enjoy…and possibly use as inspiration. : )

We had multiple outfits available for models, some more traditional than others, so many models appear more than once. The models had loads of fun in the wardrobe room changing from one outfit into another, accessorizing their attire, and wandering around Turkey Hill Inn for photos by the different photographers. : )

A Guide to Veils

Veils come in soooo many styles that finding a comprehensive list is near impossible.  Especially if you want to see some edgy or nontraditional looks.   Here is a guide from Wed Eclectic for your veil needs.

So you are planning on donning a veil for your wedding day.  What style do you choose???  Are you a lover of the romantic, a fearless modern bride that wants to rock the trends not yet started, or something in between?

Veils can be made of several different materials; Russian veiling, English merrywidow, French veiling (not made anymore but can be found in vintage stock), silk, lace, and tulle.

First of all length:

Birdcage… a short veil perfect for a modern bride.

  • – 9, 12 or 18 inches.  Two layered, bandeau, or whole birdcage.

Shoulder Length… stylish and a touch edgy with a vintage romantic feel.

Elbow Length… classic with a spirted twist.

Fingertip Length… a classic.

Waltz Length (sometimes called ballet)… hits at the back of the knees for a sweet look.

Chapel…long and flowing to the edge of your dress train.  Ideal for romance.

Cathedral…very very long trailing far past the edge of your dress line.  Uber romantic: the stuff of fairy tales and royal weddings.

The history of the veil stretches back many years and it is used to symbolise many things.
In the Roman times, the bride would wear a brightly colourful veil to ward off evil spirits whereas nowadays it is used to show modesty especially in religious ceremony.
Whatever are your reasons for wearing one, just make sure it reflects your personality.
For those of you who want a long flowing veil clearly you are after something dramatic. This beautiful veil by delightworthyn is full of theatrical styling.

However maybe you are a bride who is looking for something mysterious? What about this masquerade inspired veil by SEAMS.

And finally, for those of you who just want a hint of veil then this birdcage veil by rtisan will add a touch of glamour effortlessly.

>10eisha- Hair Accessories for the Brave

>The first time I saw 10eisha’s creations I was struck by their elegant style, and unique use of color. Then something else crept into my head. A whispering of effortless chic, and sort of urban bohemianism. I found my mind wondering around antebellum mansions, skipping in New Orleans cemeteries, quietly reading in a San Francisco coffee house, and window-shopping through New York’s East Village. All these images rolled though my brain unable to pinpoint and exact description of the hair accessories she makes. Not one of them gave me a clear description, but joined they evoked a little of the spirit of her creations. She entitles her shop “Hair Accessories for the Brave.” I would say that is a perfect description for she is a fearless designer.
