Wedding Veil Alternatives Guaranteed To Turn Heads

Angelina Jolie recently tied the knot with Brad Pitt, accessorized in a rather unconventional veil. Her veil was decorated with drawings made by all of her children! It’s such a super sweet and unique gesture.

This inspired us to think about wedding veil alternatives. There are so many options out there that are beautiful, whimsical, and creative.

Feel like unveiling some inspiration of your very own? Then take a look at our top picks below!
