Looking for that one little detail to add magic to your bridal fit? I would vote for a statement veil. Courtesy of Priyanka Chopra’s larger-than-life bridal ensemble, veils have been having quite a moment and we can totally declare that they are here to stay. From an understated lehenga to a rich kanjeevaram, this ethereal feature can instantly add life to any bridal look. This explains why veils are slowly becoming indispensable to the desi bride. Well, good for us especially because I have already started bookmarking designs! Go ahead, dig through my repository of glorious veil designs.
Mirror Mirror On The Veil
Yesterday, ace designer Arpita Mehta broke the internet with a video of her bridal entry. As the gorgeous bride walked the aisle in her own design, it was her veil that got the fashion gworls gasping. The trailing beauty featured a drizzling of mirror work all over and I feel it is the perfect way to channel some drama without overdoing the look.
All Red Everything
Do not let a traditional ensemble stop you from opting for a veil. Improvise and make it match your lehenga instead. Take, for instance, this scalloped veil that features the same handwork as the rest of the bride’s outfit.
Tonal & Toned-Down
Want to opt for an easy-breezy veil? Go for tonal thread embroidery like actress Nayanthara and you’d be gold.
Trail Game Strong
Channelling your inner diva at the wedding complete with a trailing lehenga and shiz? We recommend you go the extra mile and match it with a gossamer veil to add to the drama. Works like a charm!
Katrina Kaif’s dust-pink Sabyasachi veil will never not make my heart skip a beat.
This is the perfect veil for brides who have no plans to keep it muted with embellishments. The linear handwork will glitter against the light and will ensure all eyes are on you. Sorry, grooms!
The Best Of Both Worlds
Lately, a lot of South Indian brides have been adding an extra layer to their OOTD with contrasting veils and it’s a gorgeous look. Here’s hoping we get to see more of this trend in the upcoming shaadi season.
Tell us brides-to-be, which one of these trail designs would you rather opt for?
