Yes, Or No To A Wedding Veil?
As time moves on it’s natural for fashions, tastes and styles to change with it. But one thing that we’ve been seeing less of is brides choosing to wear a wedding veil on their special day. In this blog we’re going to look at different wedding veils and why you might like to keep this old tradition going:
Is A wedding Veil Compatible With A Modern Wedding?
If you’re a bride with modern tastes, such as strapless wedding dresses with a simple shape, then you may be wondering whether the humble wedding veil even has a place in your wedding ceremony. Modern weddings and their outfits are all about simple lines and minimal design. However, the right kind of wedding veil can be a great complement, even to modern gowns, as they add a subtle and pretty touch to your outfit without creating a clash of ‘styles.’
But what is the ‘right’ veil for a modern wedding? This veil would be great for example, even with a more modern gown:
As you can see this veil is very minimal and modern itself, and so although veils are generally a more traditional wedding item, this veil has its own modern twist and suits modern gowns perfectly.

I’m A Traditionalist, So What’s The Wedding Veil For Me?
Of course veils are most at home in a traditional, old-fashioned, wedding. They do come from the age-old tradition where the veil was originally used to cover the bride’s face, meaning that (in many cases) the new husband wouldn’t see his bride until the moment they were to be married!
Lace has always been a favorite material for traditional gowns and veils, as historically it was one of the prettiest materials available a long time ago; so it should be your starting point when looking for a traditional veil.
How about these long and lovely lace veils for a traditional touch?
