Behind the Veil

il_570xN.424002042_dhgfWhen I got married (nearly 5 years ago!), I decided to forgo the traditional veil and go with a birdcage (gasp!). At that time (for the Midwest), it seemed a little crazy that I wouldn’t wear a veil. I even had to argue with my mother about it. Now, with wedding traditions being so give and take, that seems silly. What you wear on your head is just another way to inject a little of your personality into your big day.


Recently, veils have made a comeback in a big way… and I’m not going to lie, a little part of me regrets not having one. Some of these beauties make me want to swoon. They are soft and modern, fresh and editorial.


Sometimes, though, veils can get a little confusing. So, when I came across this article from BHLDN, I just had to share.
