When I was getting married, I wanted almost nothing to do with a veil. In the end I did settle for a veil that had the same pink and diamond colored details as my wedding dress, but I tucked it under my outrageous updo. (Imagine putting longer than waist length hair all up into an updo) I topped it all off with a beautiful pink and diamond-like Swarovski crystal tiara. – Hey it was 2005, don’t judge me! (I threw in a photo of me and my glorious tiara , just incase you were curious). Photo taken by Bob Sims Photography.
I’d like to offer my opinion on veils now that I am a photographer. I am a firm believer that veils add a romantic and slightly dramatic effect to your wedding day. When a bride puts on her wedding dress, she transforms from a beautiful woman into the most gorgeous person in whatever room she enters. But when she walks down the aisle with a beautiful veil (no matter what style… We’ll get to that later) she is amazing, mesmerizing with even a touch of mystery. Veils photograph so beautifully, that I almost wish I had put more emphasis on mine during my wedding day.
Here are some examples of gorgeous veils in wedding photos:
The princess wore her tiara under her veil and it was still just as gorgeous. I LOVE SMILING BRIDES UNDER VEILS!
