How to Attach Your Veil To a Headpiece

It is an obvious problem with not-so-obvious solutions: If you are wearing both a veil and headpiece (tiara or other hair decoration) during the ceremony, how do you keep both beautifully attached to your hair?

How to Attach Your Veil to a Headpiece

If you will not be removing your veil for the reception, the answer is to attach your veil by merely sewing the headpiece to your veil. Secure the headpiece to your hair with pins or combs. If you plan to take the veil off and leave a tiara or other headpiece in your hair after the wedding, you have three detachable options:

1. Sew a comb to your veil and secure it in your hair near the headpiece.
2. Attach bridal loops to gathers in your veil (you may want to double-up the end loops for additional strength, then attach the veil to the headpiece with the loops).
3. Use Velcro. Attach the loop side to your headpiece and the hook side to the veil for easy removal.
