Shoes, dresses, bouquets….. many a bride has spent hours dreaming and designing these elements of her wedding costume.  Yet some women hesitate when it comes to choosing a veil. Are veils too old fashioned? Too conservative and stuffy? Not at all!

Long and Lovely

Veils have been worn by women in many cultures throughout  history as a sign of status, ceremony or  separateness.  All three of these aspects are still symbolized in the traditional wedding veil, as two people celebrate forever their new status as a married couple, no longer separate souls. This lovely, long veil would be perfect for a cathedral wedding. What could be more romantic?

Short and Chic

If your vision of bridal perfection is more fashion-forward than traditional, short veils and fascinators offer a glamorous alternative to a longer veil.  So in style, and so many shapes and fabrics too choose from! From netting to lace, glittering  to floral, the opportunities to make a statement are endless. We love the sophistication of this stylish head piece by Jennifer Behr.
