As we start to look ahead to 2017 bridal collections, there are also some rather exciting changes happening in the wedding world for the bridal veil next season.
We’ve written before about how important it is to get your accessories right (Tips for Accessorising Your Wedding Dress) in order to help show your wedding dress in all its glory. And with veils, the same really is true. If you’re selecting an Inbal Dror gown with a beautifully detailed back, the material and style of your veil is so important to compliment rather than overshadow your dress.
As we see a push towards simpler fabrics and classic silhouettes, so too are we seeing the runways full of traditional wedding accoutrements – longer sleeves, a train and the veil. 2016 has seen a lot of brides opting for a statement headpiece, mostly the tiara. While headpieces make a very adorable alternative or accompaniment to the veil, next season is likely to see tiaras being worn for the second look of the day; in the evening, rather than for the main ceremony.
With beautiful pastel colours dominating many collections for next season, the wonderful world of veils has jumped to attention. We expect to see beautiful intricate veils in a variety of blush colours. Our top tip when selecting the colour of your veil, is to make sure it is the right shade for your gown. Other accessories can be matched together, but you veil must work to enhance your natural skin tone and give you a glow on the big day.
While tradition still has hold of many styles for 2017, certain designers have decided to set their own trend with exquisite and very low back detailing. Our collections that are coming through from Jesus Peiro, Cymbeline and many others have cowl backs adorned with sparkles and details that definitely should not be hidden by a veil. 2017 is likely to have many more sheer single-tiered veils than this year – to help you remain traditional with a veil, but really show off your dress.
