Spotlight on: Veils

Jun 13, 2018

Veils have been reintroduced to the spotlight after the Great British public was dazzled by Meghan Markle’s veil depicting native flowers from each country in the commonwealth.

Elegant and breath taking, the veil has retaken modern brides by storm as more and more are opting to incorporate them into their wedding look. The traditional veil has received a lot of modern updates; some very diverse and stylish veils are gracing the wedding aisles in 2018. Ellis Bridals style specialists have given it some serious thought and put together a serious of looks that incorporate some of the trending veil styles in 2018.

Beaded Detailing

This Ellis Bridals dress has custom feather beaded embroidery which could be accentuated with a matching beaded veil in a way that is both fashion-forward, but still doffs its hat to vintage looks from the 1920s. Pair with a light blush and simple eyeliner makeup look, beaded earrings, and subtle white satin heels – follow the flow of the dress and have fewer beads and sparkle the further down you go on your wedding look.

Colourful flowers are a very popular choice for brides in their décor, style and for the all important bouquet, but you could use your veil to put a twist on the current flower crown trend. Flowers could cascade down your back with your veil in a beautiful and charming display. Pair with this Ellis Bridals wedding gown that is sensual, feminine and youthful, this is modern bridal at its best – perfect for the playful element that coloured flowers would introduce. Pair with shoes that match the hue of some of the veil’s flowers and a quirky manicure.
