Non traditional wedding veils and headpieces seem to be one of the hottest trends to hit the wedding market in years. Hotels Unlimited would like to share with you some ideas for a non traditional wedding veil. You will be beautiful walking down the aisle in the newest stylish, trendy fashion.
Instead of the traditional veil brides have been wearing since the beginning of time, brides now seem to want a change. Although nontraditional veils and headpieces have been around for years, it seems that now is the time more brides are wearing them. According to ehow.com and wedding-veil.com, there are a few types of nontraditional veils and headpieces a bride can choose from.
It is a delicate veil that covers the face to right below the chin. It is usually attached to a headband, hat or a gathering of flowers.
A veil that covers the bride’s face but it is not as long as the birdcage veil.
A veil that touches or just covers the shoulders.
Brides are putting a flower or a group of flowers, matching their wedding flowers or not, in their hair. They can be attached to a headband, veil, or pinned right into their hair.
A fascinator is a small hat that sits on top of the head or worn on an angle covering one eye. A veil can be attached to this, usually the birdcage veil.
Combs and Pins
If a bride chooses not to have a veil at all, she can decorate her hair by tucking in a comb or a pin. A comb is larger than a pin and is used to hold the hair back. They can be decorated with rhinestones and other jewels. A pin can be used for both up-do’s and loose hairstyles.
So, choose one of the ideas above, or even combine some of them to make the perfect headpiece for you on your wedding day! There are so many possibilities to pick from, what will you be walking down the aisle in?

In a down economy, it is no surprise that people are turning to new alternatives to subdue the cost of their Central NJ wedding. After all, with all the components to a wedding the average cost is around $40,000 in New Jersey. This is why many wedding experts have projected 2012 to be yet another popular year for do-it-yourself projects (see our post for hot 2012 wedding trends.)
According to a new article featured in the New York Times, this trend is only going to increase as 2012 progresses. People are now looking into making their own wedding ring as both a sentimental symbol of their love and a unique mark of this major lifetime milestone. Although making a wedding ring isn’t a walk in the park, some welding shops such as The Wedding Ring Experience will guide couples along their journey to make their own personalized wedding rings using gold or platinum. Some couples can bring their own precious metals and materials or the shop can purchase the raw materials needed at the current exchange rate.
This can also make an excellent idea for a NJ engagement ring, because what woman wouldn’t want a custom piece to call her own?
It’s inevitable. Couples can annoy each other from time to time. And this can be especially true when it comes to wedding planning. Here are the top five ways brides can annoy their grooms—and how to avoid them.
1. Talking “wedding” 24/7. Of course, your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life, but that doesn’t mean you have to let it completely consume your life, day in and day out, between your engagement and the big day. Schedule some non-wedding time with your fiancé to keep some sense of sanity alive—for both of you.
2. Wavering on every single decision. When it comes to decision-making, most guys don’t like to mess around. If you waffle on every wedding related decision, he’s sure to get annoyed. And if you ask your groom for his opinion and still end up waffling, good luck. Instead, make an educated decision, based on both of your input, and stick to it. Then move on with the next item on your list. Otherwise, it will be tough to accomplish anything and you’ll end up stressing out yourself—and your groom.
3. Crying—over everything. Trust me, I get it. Weddings are emotional. But try not to get so caught up in the emotional rollercoaster that you burst into tears at the drop of a hat, say when your fiancé’s mom asks if she can invite her third cousin to the wedding or your maid of honor wants to wear a dress in your not-so-favorite color. Try handling everything in a calm, collected fashion, whenever possible, to prevent letting emotions cloud your judgment—and escalate into an unnecessary blow-out.
4. Insulting his mother. You and your future mother-in-law may not see eye-to-eye on everything, but that doesn’t mean he wants to hear about it each and every time an issue comes up between the two of you. After all, she’s his mother, and she can likely do no harm. Pick your battles here.
5. Acting helpless. Let’s face it. You’re perfectly capable of doing many, many things—without his help. While screaming and crying to get him to kill a spider may get some results, screaming and crying for his help with every detail of your wedding plans likely won’t. Instead, create a plan to split up the wedding planning duties between the two of you and then work on knocking them out—together.
Happy New Year everyone! There are some great opportunities and great deals to be had when planning your NJ wedding for 2012, and here at Hotels Unlimited we have some exciting news to tell you about. Looking forward to the new year, we are excited to see what the latest trends for 2012 will be for weddings. Here are some popular trends for the upcoming year.
According to Brides.com, some really popular dress trends for 2012 include the invisible neckline that would allow for additional support for any bride. This also includes lace sleeves.
Although some consider it taboo to not have a white dress, the wedding industry is slowly starting to break from the 200+ year Victorian tradition and is starting into blush, lavender and green accents into the dress.
Finally the other significant change is the double skirt look. Rather than bunching and gathering, a double layered skirt can accent a bride’s curves.
Flowers… or perhaps not?
With the high cost of flowers, many brides are getting craftier and going the DIY route on their bouquets. This can mean using non-traditional accents such as small berries, fruit, buttons, fabric, broaches, gems, wire and more. This is also a more eco-friendly option as flowers wilt and die within hours of the wedding. However, brides that opt for an all floral bouquet can choose locally grown options for the season as it is a more cost-effective option than ordering flowers and paying for shipping.
Looking to save some money on the big day? Many brides are looking towards the vintage route to include being crafty and incorporating the family theme. Some brides have done this by including old marriage photos from the family, incorporating older elements into their wedding.
