Veil is a wedding accessory that doesn't only add sweetness to your look but also symbolizes the purity of the bride. This wedding detail will definitely not be overlooked when the bride walks down the aisle. From time to time, wedding veils are chosen to even more create a beautiful resemblance to the wedding dress. We also found that in this era, where wedding theme and styles have become increasingly modern, the types of wedding veil brides wear are not always limited to a thin piece of white fabric. Take a look at the veil inspirations we've gathered below and find one or two you love for the most special day of your life!

  • For Boho Brides

    Bohemian weddings are often associated with the Juliet cap, but there’s nothing wrong with adding some gold sequins for a glamorized look. If you want something more edgy, try using pleated fabrics as pictured above.

  • Fringe ends

    Another inspiration for a bohemian wedding that you can imitate is the trending macramé ornaments. The macramé that is often found in decorations can also be an addition to the veil. However, the fringe at the ends of this veil is not exclusive to a bohemian look, especially when it’s not made out of macramé. See the picture on the left for an inspiration.

  • Knots and buns

    Vintage-styled brides will love this veil, simple but charming. Only for brides with long hair, it is suggested to adjust your hair style as this knotted veil does not work well with loose wedding hairstyle. Try shaping your hair into an elegant up-do before wearing the veil.

  • Vintage vixen

    The charm of nets in wedding veils is getting more and more popular among vintage and retro brides. Remember that there isn’t a standard of lengths or shapes, so you might want to experiment with your hairnet veil.

  • Layers of color

    Try to mix and match ombre-accented veils for a modern look. The color options for the ombre veils can also be adjusted to the color of the wedding dress, theme or style to harmonize the look. Imagine wearing a blue ombre veil for a beach wedding, your veil will resemble the ocean waves and steal every guest’s attention.

  • Floral garden

    For brides who like an extra-feminine look, 3D flower ornaments or colorful flower embroidery will surely perfect your look. A garden-style wedding would very well suit this kind of veil, don’t you think?

  • Dreamy fairytale

    If you’re having a fairy tale wedding, you should find the two examples of veils above interesting. Take a look at the fairy tale-like embroidery, with ‘and they lived happily ever after’ written over it or the pearl-embedded one that spread like stars in the sky. A romantic nuance in an instant.

  • Fancy lace

    Brides-to-be with a classic style will of course love laces on their veil. You can also definitely create a veil entirely out of lace, which will instill an overall grace to your look.

  • Personal sentiments

    Give a more personal touch by inserting an excerpt of your favorite poem or couple monogram. Ask a professional calligrapher’s help for a beautiful result!

  • Black is back

    Weddings with a monochrome concept have also become some couple’s idea of a dream wedding. If you’re one of them, a black-tinted veil is an alternative you can consider.

  • Other materials

    For a unique celebration, don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Your veil doesn’t have to be made out of a piece of fabric, you can also use sewn-together flowers as an alternative or by knitting macramés as their veil. What about you? What will you use as your wedding veil material?
