Giving in: Veils

Lately, I've been a little over the wedding thing. Not my own, of course. I am full steam ahead on my own preparations. Which might be why looking at other people's wedding is just too much. But yesterday I picked up a copy of the new Martha Stewart Weddings and suddenly I was all excited about weddings again.*

Since I gave in and decided to go the traditional route (get a veil), I thought I'd highlight some gorgeous ones I've seen on-line for those who haven't taken the plunge yet.

Not surprisingly, my favorites come from Jennifer Behr. Her looks are so editorial, but I think, completely wearable. I don't think anyone wearing these would look like a fashion victim.
Early in my wedding planning I identified Sara Gabriel as making some of the most beautiful veils, albeit it much more traditional. I love the art deco beading on the second one and that last one is certain to induce tears.

I also had to note these beautifully modern and different veils from Twigs and Honey. I'm not totally in love with feathers, but I think these are gorgeous.
I'll concede that veils are very traditional, but I think there are so many options that your look doesn't have to be. I absolutely adore short birdcage veils, but I'm equally enamored with the long simple ones. not convinced? Check out these headband options.

*Although I have to say, what is with all the circus themed weddings lately? Does everyone dream of a circus themed wedding? I must be weird...


  1. Lovely post. I love first and the second picture - Jennifer Behr. Gorgeous.

    Have a great weekend.

  2. I for one am fan that you have gone the traditional route, these all look great!

  3. Twigs & Honey made my flower hair piece for my wedding! Mine looks a little like the flower in the first Twigs & Honey pic. :)

  4. Danielle, your hair and the flower looked so pretty at your wedding. It was seriously some of the best wedding hair I've ever seen!
