As you can see by perusing our Real Weddings, there are numerous ways for a bride to wear her hair. Flowers, up-dos, headbands, fascinators, and long, flowing tresses are all wonderful options for your special day. But there is something so romantic and classy about veils and Etsy has some amazing options.
Recently I went bridal gown shopping with a dear friend and I was frankly shocked at the limited amount of veils available. Not to mention, the ones they did have for sale were incredibly expensive for what you got. Let's just say I was not impressed.
Luckily, if you are wanting to wear a veil on your wedding day, Etsy has unlimited options for any bride. Long, short, colorful, white…. they have everything. Plus, you are supporting independent artists and designers, which is something that is important to me.
One quick word of advice before I show you some of my favorite veils: don't be afraid of ordering from outside of North America. Custom veils can take a long time to make, regardless where you buy, so instead consider each Etsy store's online reviews when deciding on which designer and veil to choose. Plus, be sure to read all the store's instructions and policies so you can be sure to get the perfect handmade wedding veil for you.
