The wedding veil – the new statement in bridal fashion
you were to close your eyes and picture a bride you would see a beautiful gown,
bouquet, and of course, a wedding veil.
Though everyone pictures a different dress no one imagines a bride without
her veil. The veil is the ultimate bridal accessory and it makes you feel like
a real bride. We all have nightmares about the huge, puffy veils from the 80’s
but veils can be minimal and elegant and provide a magical and soft look. Veils
are not all alike and definitely reflect your personal style. Historically, the purpose of a wedding veil
was meant to conceal the bride from the groom on her wedding day using a
blusher that went over the face. However, nowadays veils have transitioned into
more of a fashion statement and not just an afterthought. Not only do brides want the latest trends in
wedding dresses, but veils too! Today we will talk about the different trends
in veils for 2012.
Wedding veil trends for 2012
the gown is chosen most brides search for the perfect veil to go with it. So,
what veils are in this year? The prominent trend in veils for 2012 is actually
dimension and fuller veils. Veils with
dimension feature 3D treatments added to the edge of the veil or scattered all
over. Sheer organza flowers and satin bows are just the few of the beautiful accents
added to these veils. Previously, brides
would look for simple veils with little or no gatherings; however, in 2012
brides are looking for extra fullness and extra pouf!
A fuller wedding veil is especially
beneficial to a shorter bride because it adds height. One example of this trend
is the Bouffant Classic style veil
which has a “lift” of bridal illusion tulle stitched under the veil to help
maintain the extra height and fullness. The Fountain
Veil is another example of a fuller veil. They call it a fountain veil
because the tulle spills out of the comb just like the water from a fountain.
This veil also contains a “lift” under the veil and you can add a variety of
embellishments and edgings as well.
