Hats Off to These 11 Stunning Bridal Veil Alternatives

In the Medieval times, veils were used to protect the bride from spirits and demons. But in the modern age, brides know that blocking their vision with white tulle isn’t necessarily going to save them from the evil eye.   

We’ve found 11 wedding veil alternatives for brides looking for less traditional ways to cover their heads.

1. Fascinating Fascinator
