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

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, 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.
