1. Feather trims
When donning a simple wedding dress, you’ve got a world of options to choose from for a veil. Cue this design by Charlotte Balbier, which features lush feathers all along the edge.
2. A shawl veil
Frame a gorgeous shawl such as this one around your face in a twist on the traditional veil which, much as we love all-things classic, really does pack a punch.
3. A touch of colour
For some brides, a wedding day look needn’t be white from head to toe. Add a touch of colour through your veil – this Reem Acra creation serves up plenty of inspiration.
4. The Juliet effect
There’s something so romantic about a Juliet cap – the way it gathers around the back of the head and reveals a bride’s face in all its glory. We love this one in particular by Irish designer Megan Therese Couture.
5. Blush beauty
This ethereal drape veil in blush pink with floral touches is literally the stuff of dreams. Not to mention how perfectly it complements the dried flower comb in this bride’s hair.
6. Large petals
Not everything has to look dainty and delicate in your bridal look – these large, layered petals scattered across a plain veil create a gorgeous effect and a fashion statement through your veil.
7. Small and sweet
Of course, if small and simple is what you’re after, it works wonderfully too. This plain tulle veil with smatterings of small white petals looks like something straight off the runway.
8. Over-the-top trims
It isn’t every day that you see a bride walk down the aisle in a veil so striking that it stops you dead in your tracks. But this Oscar de la Renta veil, with its exaggeratedly wide palm trim, does just that.
