Is your wedding steeped in tradition? Are you planning a church ceremony where you and your fiancé will not see each other until you walk down the aisle?

If you like the idea of having a veil, but would like a slightly less formal option, a classic veil is a great alternative. This wedding veil option does not have a blusher over your face, but still offers that classic bridal look that many brides (and their mother’s) envision. Whether you choose a simple finger-tip veil made of tulle or a dramatic cathedral style in Chantilly lace, a classic veil is truly timeless.
We love bringing back bygone bridal fashion! If vintage is your vibe, a Juliet Cap Veil is the way to go. This striking style takes you back to the roaring 20’s in Gatsby-like glamour. Maybe your family has an heirloom piece or you’ve found a showstopper in a local thrift store just waiting to be given new life. No luck on the vintage front, no worries! Another way to go is having a Juliet Cap Veil handmade to match your gown. What better place to look than on Etsy. Creating a new piece just for you is a great way to merge vintage inspired fashion with modern times.
If your wedding style has more of a bohemian feel, a flower crown with gorgeous greenery and beautiful blooms would be ideal. Though Snapchat has brought the flower crown to the masses, it’s truly a wonderful way to stand out from the crowd on your big day (no filter required). Whether you choose simple loose waves or a teased fishtail bridal hair braid, adding a flower crown is the icing on the cake.
Perhaps you’ve never pictured yourself in a veil and are having a more modern beachside wedding. Maybe you’ve decided on a beachy bridal hair braid, why not tie in a little bling to compliment your look!
