My co-worker made my veil for me. I really like the material I picked out for the veil. We weren't able to find a comb large enough to attach the veil to, so she attached it to a headband. My wedding is in August and I don't want to wear my hair down that day. Would it look awkward if my hair was in a bun or half up and half down with the veil? The Future Mrs. Williams
Okay, you didn't really elaborate on how long your hair was, or what size your veil was, but I am going to go with the assumption that you have something larger than a birdcage veil, since you can't attach it to a comb.
Your headband & veil combo may not look exactly like any of these, but just pay attention to the way the hair sits. You said you didn't want your hair completely down, so I did what I could.
Hope these helped!

I need to get some ideas and suggestions too. Does anyone know where I can find a book that has a bunch of different styles pictured? I've already looked through a lot of the magazines but nothing I've found so far has looked very exciting to me as of yet.
Check Amazon for books if you want to purchase them, or find the title on Amazon and check your local library (then you can xerox the page you want and save money). Also, visit the hair salon. They should have a books with examples. My wedding is in a year. Since fake hair bothers me (not on anyone else, just I don't like hair that isn't mine touching me...yea, I'm weird), I've already talked to my hairstylist about what I want to do and the best way to grow out my hair. I am just going with a modern take on a 1940s hairstyle, so I found my example in a vintage hairstyling book.
As for the original post, I don't think it's weird to wear a headband and pull your hair back. Actually, it's pretty cute!
