More and more brides are opting for headpieces and flower crowns these days, but the traditional veil is still a classic choice. Here are a few selections that capture the timeless beauty of veils with a modern twist.


Bel Aire – 6434 & V7161

This piece is a combination of the traditional veil, modern crown, and vintage headwrap. Embroidered with silver flowers and leaves, it even has a bohemian feel. It is truly a versatile look that pairs beautifully with any style of gown. The wrap is met with a four-tier cut edge flyaway elbow veil, which can be removed for even more options.

Available for order at Always Elegant Bridal & Tuxedo
1199 Butte House Road, Ste. A  in Yuba City


Bel Aire – V7034

This lace fingertip-length veil is booming with romance. The subtle sparkle and floral accents bring a touch of glamour and the simplicity offers a delicate and quintessential feminine look. Perfect for the traditional bride.

Available for order at The Bridal Box
417 Oak Street in Roseville


Illusions Bridal – 7301RS

Did someone say rhinestones? This veil is simple at first glance, but the rhinestone trim amps up the glam, giving the traditional look a modern edge. We love that this veil is made in America.

Available at Second Summer Bride
1433 Fulton Ave, Suite A in Sacramento

Twinkle Veil

This veil has all the shimmer and sparkle without the heavy beading. It’s light and airy so the soft “twinkle” adds detail to a simple dress or compliments a fully beaded gown. Imagine walking down the aisle surrounded by twinkling lights! SPECTACULAR! It is available in any length, including cathedral length.

Available at SPARKLE bridal couture
