NYB&Co. Will Pull Your Look Together

Bridal accessories are the finishing touches that can take your wedding day look to the next level. But, you need to be discriminating about your choices. Trying to incorporate too many patterns, textures and styles into one look can be overwhelming. Our talented crew of professional bridal consultants can ensure that each piece of your ensemble complements the other.

Veils are an integral accessory for many brides. Let’s take a closer look at this traditional wedding item. We’ll start by learning about the history of veils:

Cloche Headdresses

The 1920s saw brides favouring the lace cloche headdresses, some of which would be encircled with flowers. Veils were usually made of silk materials and decorated with flowers and leaves that would match the blooms in her bouquet.

Veils started to make a more simple statement in the 1930s and into the 40’s when brides wore shear veils hanging loosely over their heads. The main reason for this style movement was a shortage of fabric during the war! Read more at Weddings Ideas Mag

Reflect Your Personality In Your Veil

Similar to knowing when you have found “the dress,” you’ll feel it when your veil choice works perfectly with your bridal style. We welcome photos at New York Bride & Co., so when you’ve narrowed the options down, take pics from a variety of angles to ensure you love your veil from every angle. With so many styles and length options, we highly recommend trying on a few different types to find the one that will enhance and finish your wedding day outfit. Let’s learn about the variety of veils below:

Birdcage Veil

In the post-wear years of the 1950s an enviable surge in elaborate bridal accessories brought about real style statement pieces including birdcage veils and slender fitting skullcap veils.

This fashion-forward look mellowed in the 60s with veils taking on a more modern, bohemian vibe. Long, floaty styles became popular and took their cue from the ‘flower-power’ look of the time. These were often attached to pillbox hats. The 1970’s continued with a more relaxed style to the trend with floral crowns and shear veils draped over the top.

Cathedral Length

By the 1980s, the bigger the better! We saw Princess Diana’s mammoth veil setting the trend for a whole generation of brides. Her amazing veil was 24 feet long but the perfect length to make a dramatic statement as she entered St Paul’s cathedral. (surely the longest and most recognizable style in the history of wedding veils!) There are so many styles to behold for headdresses and veils.

Veil Length Will Change Your Look

We are happy to show brides a variety of veil styles once they discover their dream dress contenders. The wedding venue often plays a role in determining how long your veil train should be. For example, a Cathedral length veil for a beach wedding might be extra tricky if you are planning a ceremony on the sand. If, however, you are opting for church nuptials, this length may be ideal. Our seasoned bridal consultants will help you match the perfect length and style of veil with your wedding dress and location.

As we said, veils can be a crucial part of the wedding outfit, but we also know they’re not right for everyone. If you’re not sold on wearing a veil but still want something for embellishment, we have tiaras, combs and clips you can browse. Let us know what you envision for your special day and we’ll bring your dream to life.
