Victorian Inspired Vintage
Take a step back in time with this vintage-inspired wedding veil. Here, the drama comes from the top down, with a delicately embroidered head covering that would look so sweet paired with loose, romantic curls and a naturally flushed cheek.
Veil drama doesn’t just come from long length. Shorter wedding veils can pack just as much visual punch with lots of volume.
Glam 1920s Cap
They don’t call the 1920s the Golden Age for nothing. Opulence, drama, sparkle and fun ruled both the cultural and fashion scenes and weddings were no exception. This cap veil, with its feathers, lace and pearls is just begging for a jewel-encrusted drop waist dress— and plenty of champagne!
Of course, capturing the drama of your Kate Middleton-inspired veil is always easy when you’ve got a gorgeous backdrop to use. Be sure to showcase all that tulle with a few profile photos against your wedding venue’s best assets, like this flower-lined lake.
A dramatic crest of a mountain top, a heart-melting look of love, a bright pop of a yellow bouquet and a windswept wedding veil— is there any setting more apt for a wedding photo? We think not.
Fun and Whimsy
Don’t be afraid to play with your veil, especially during your wedding photos! Be sure you and your new hubby take a few whimsical shots having fun with your veil; not only will you end up getting some cool, unique shots, but they’ll help loosen up the mood during the photo sesh, too!
Who says your dramatic veil moment has to mean it’s still connected to your head?! If you’re planning on wearing a long veil for your ceremony but want to take it out afterwards to properly get down on the dance floor, try and get your photog to snap a couple shots with just you, some wind and a veil in your hand.
Fashion Editorial Moment
Got a passion for fashion? Use your long veil and style smarts to your advantage for a similarly sweeping photo with you and your groom. The artsy black and white color scheme heightens the drama in a totally elegant way.
Add some drama to your bridal portraits by getting your veil in on the action. This bride almost looks like she’s floating inside a cloud with all that pure white tulle surrounding her, and what bride doesn’t already feel like she’s walking on air?!
