What better way to complete the bridal look and make your grand entrance, while walking down the aisle, with a veil.
We envision ourselves when we are young, with our mermaid-flare dress and long veil sweeping behind us; or in a crystal princesses dress with a short, bouncy veil; or being totally chic with a birdcage and a tea-length dress (probably in a blush pink!)
Veils can come in all sorts of lengths that suit your tastes: long, short, fingertip, or even double-layered. The edges can be in crystal, satin, lace, or horse-hair. These details are exceptional with a lace dress, or even an organza or satin dress that needs some embellishment. For very ornate dresses, with bead work and embroidered lace, a veil with scattered crystal and pearls will give the look just the right amount of whimsy.
Some brides may opt for a birdcage, a small net that stays in front of the face and it turned over during a ceremony. These come in different shapes, net thickness and can be decorated in pearls, crystals and flowers. Adding a comb with mixed elements (such as pearl, feather, lace and flowers) makes the birdcage more vintage. Another idea is a thick bandeau, for a more flapper and 1920s inspired wedding.
