Named after the one and only Juliet from Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, but more precisely from Juliet’s wedding outfit as sketched by it’s author: She was wearing a delicate fitted headdress adorned with a veil.
Later it became one of the symbol of the 20s-30s. In the 50s Grace Kelly and Jacky Kennedy brought it back to life, so well that it remained popular until this day. As a matter of fact, Kate Moss and Lili Allen wore it to their own weddings.
My 3 tips for selecting your veil:
– Make sure your veil is the same color and tone of your dress.
– Always talk to your hairstylist to make sure that the style of veil you choose can be adapted to your hair type and style.
– Choose your veil according to your shape an height. Avoid long heavily embroidered veil if you are very short. On the other hand, shoulder length veil are perfect if you have broad shoulders as the delicately hide them.
