Bridal veils are THE classic wedding accessory but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear one and still be fashion forward. Veils have their trends like everything else related to wedding fashion – in 2014 the diversity of the bridal veil trends you need to know about mean that veils are in for every kind of bride. Here are our picks for the bridal veil trends for the 2014/2015 wedding season:
It’s All About the Drama
Long and flowing, Cathedral length or short and sweet birdcage veils – however you wear yours, take things to the extreme. Expect to see modern shapes with traditional embellishments or statement veils. Yes, we said statement veils.
More Is More
Veils are bigger than ever with more volume in a nod to 80s fashion. Think billows and airiness and pouf! There is so much opportunity for expressing your personality with your veil – go big, or even bigger!
Bright Whites are Back
Forget ivory and cream, because starks and diamonds are where it’s at. This veil trend is probably the result of brides embracing pops of color yet again. Nothing highlights an accent color like bright white.
Lots of Lace
Lace is everywhere at weddings this year, including on the bride’s head. Lace edge veils are perfect for the bride who wants an ultra feminine, elegant wedding day look.
Casual weddings are a lot of fun, but more and more brides are planning sophisticated events with all the trimmings – and that includes ultra formal (and ultra romantic) bridal accessories like formal bridal veils.
As majestic as it can be difficult to wear, the cathedral length veil does not actually require a cathedral to make an appearance at your nuptials. If you want to make a serious statement, feel free to go long, longer, or longest when it comes to your veil.
Or Go Boho
Romantic and fresh, the boho look is still hot – albeit in a modified, more sophisticated form. Embrace this look without looking like a hippie by choosing upscale embellishments and luxe fabrics.
