While most trends come and go, we’re sure this gorgeous trend is here to stay. If you’re planning your dream wedding this year, you should definitely think about adding the charm of a veil to your bridal look. It looks extremely royal and elegant.

A veil is a perfect choice if you wish to add *chaar chand* to your bridal look. If you don’t believe us, these brides will convince you to wear one!
A Veil That Broke The Internet
It’s safe to say that Pernia Qureshi broke the internet in October, with one killer bridal look at a time. The fashionista got married in a beautiful ceremony in Turkey, Istanbul and one of our favourite outfits from the numerous functions has to be this Élan outfit she got married in! The stunning sheer veil drops down to her waist and has a long trail with an intricate border for added effect.
Can You *Spot* A Stunner?
This bride’s golden polka dot veil matches perfectly with her lehenga and blouse. If you don’t want to get a separate veil, just use your bridal dupatta as one. You may or may not wish to add another dupatta to the mix.
Keep It Simple
This bride’s elegant outfit by designer Honii Sandhu is a perfect pick if you’re looking for a lehenga set that’s not red! This bride opted for two dupattas. One that was draped in the front and went over her shoulders and the other that went over her head as a veil. Take notes from this bride and opt for a plain net veil that doesn’t weigh you down.
If this bride doesn’t convince you to wear a veil, we don’t know what will! It adds such a royal touch to her look and don’t the passa and mangtika look even more gorgeous under the pink net?!
Royal In Rose Gold
Add a touch of regality to your wedding outfit with a rose gold veil. We love the zari work all through the dupatta. Keeping your overall makeup minimal, go with intense smokey eyes and we bet you’d make a stunning bride.
Colour Contrast It
If you’re a minimalistic bride, this veil is perfect for you! The bride styled her blush pink lehenga with a blush pink veil and an ombre pop pink dupatta on the shoulders. The veil was plain with minimal booti work but the colour contrast is what made it stand out.
The Magnificent Red
Let’s admit it, red is the colour that comes to our mind whilst choosing an outfit for our big day. And if you too are choosing the alluring red colour, make sure to add the twist of a veil to your traditional look. This bride wore a plain veil and added another dupatta on top of it. Like the style?
Enchanting Rose Gold
When it comes to your bridal outfit, leave no stone unturned and add a heavily embroidered veil to your wedding lehenga just like this bride did. Doesn’t she look absolutely breathtaking? Despite the heavy work on both her lehenga and her veil, the look just somehow manages to look perfect and I for one, have saved this in my wedding outfit inspiration folder!
If you’re planning to wear a veil on your D-day, do get a few black and white bridal portraits clicked. They look elegant and oh-so timeless! A stunning maang tikka will only add more grandeur to your look.
