No matter the size of the wedding, big or small, what bride doesn’t love customization? You want something to feel like it’s yours and yours alone on your wedding day to give it an ultra-personal edge.
Over the few wedding seasons, we’ve been swooning over the customized motorcycle jackets emblazoned with tags such as “Wifey” or “Mrs,” not to mention the trend spinning off into the jean jackets and expanding into an entire bridal party in matching custom jean jackets—who doesn’t love a very Instagrammable moment with their girls?! Whether you’re exchanging vows in an orchard or on an estate, you can customize this trend to match your day and personal style.
So what “takes the cake” as the new customizable trend? The custom veil.
This budding trend flew under the radar a few years back but that all changed Meghan Markle walked down the aisle in 2018 with her custom embroidered veil, which included the flora of the 53 commonwealth countries around its perimeter. It was also almost sixteen feet in length! What the Duchess of Sussex started with her personalized veil was only built upon in 2019 with Hailey Bieber and her “Till Death Do Us Part” cathedral-length number created by Off-White designer Virgil Abloh.
Customizing your veil? We are here for it! Adding an element that speaks to you and your partnership? Yes, please. Perhaps you’re not one for words or a tagline, but even adding a design element (think intricate lace or three dimensional florals) that’s all yours can take your veil to the next level.
Making quite the literal statement with your veil may just be the customization trend we have been waiting for.
