Intricate wedding veils to be hot trend for summer

Intricate and detailed wedding veils are set to be a hot trend for the summer; in fact statement pieces are due to be a popular choice for brides, according to digitaljournal.com.

With Oscar de la Renta’s 2013 Bridal Collection featuring scene-stealing head pieces, the natural look that has been popular for a while seems set to be on the way out. Brides are thought to be opting for couture styles.

Events company Kiss the Planner recommends: “Embrace the high-fashion trend when choosing your headpieces – such as floral wreaths (leaves and all), feathered birdcages… or a modern Juliet cap – so long as the headpiece coheres with the style of your gown.”

The dramatic styles may complement the theme of the wedding reception venue, particularly if the happy couple go for a floral, summery theme.

Lace veils are also thought to be a popular style this summer. Chanel featured them at the Spring 2013 Couture show but, according to huffingtonpost.com, at least six months of forward planning for the right outfit is essential.

Brides-to-be who want to embrace this trend would be wise to find their perfect veil now, in time for their wedding later in the year, ensuring they’re on-trend by the time the big day arrives.
