A veil was something I didn’t really give proper consideration to when I got married. I figured I was too old to do ‘demure’ and my Alberta Ferretti dress was a nude pink so it would have been difficult to match tulle. The ladies in the Via Condotti store where I’d bought my dress did try a heavy mantilla style and that was my first and last attempt at wearing a veil, I hated it! Oh how I now wish I’d worn one! We presume a veil can only represent modesty and purity but have you noticed the luminous effect it has on your skin or how coyly provocative it can be???? It’s actually just the littlest bit sexy and coquettish, which I love!
As we’re putting together our veil & headpiece collection for 2013 from Joyce Jackson and Rainbow Club, I am reminded (confused by) how vast the permutations of lengths and tiers are, whether you invest in silk tulle or nylon, bouffant or blusher… the choices are endless! So we’re wooing over this incredibly beautiful guide to choosing your veil, curated by the super stylish team at BHLDN Chicago, we just had to share it with you.
The word ‘accessory’ just doesn’t seem to describe a veil properly. A veil, as far as we’ve seen, has transformative powers.
Picture a bride-to-be as she climbs onto a little step to get a sense for her dress. She fluffs it, turns around, and then tucks into her impromptu topknot a delicate swath of tulle. It’s this wisp-thin addition that begins to take her from bride-to-be to simply: a bride. While trends have come and gone and come back again over the years, there are a few styles we believe to be quite timeless in their own way, and when paired with the right dress are, well, heartbreakingly beautiful.
