Over the years I've developed a bit of a crush on colored veils. But the problem is… you just don't see 'em all too often. So here's “Megan's tribute to the colored veils I have loved.” We've got dramatic reds, daring purples, and understated blues, even some fiery oranges up in this! Feast your eyeballs:

I'm starting off with a bang with Cadaverous Muse‘s incredible veil/hat combo using black and purple tulle for the fall and a black netting for over her face.

Kyra had an amazing black veil, and even her bridesmaids got into the colored veil action!

Couple Portrait on the Bench
This is Jesse and Aiko posing on a bench at Mayfield Park. I think this was our first (and only?) gorgeous grey cathedral-length veil. The veil was sewn by the bride's mother from a platinum chiffon fabric.

Luke & Suzanne's Muppet wedding
Suzanne wore a light blue birdcage veil with a sparkly “POW” fascinator for the Muppet wedding.

What about a two-tone blue veil like Chantal‘s?

327Becky went all out with a blue veil that matched her blue sash at her winter wedding in Vermont.

UntitledAnd how could we ever forget Kimmy's purple veil from Kimmy & Ramzi's hill country sunset wedding with bells!

Purple veils also look amazing in birdcage styles that happen to match your purple dress, like in Cristina and Adrian's wedding.

The same with Oonagh's gold veil that perfectly complimented her amazing golden dress.

Clarke 552 LRTuesday_Silver had the cutest, classiest little purple be-ribboned veil.

manya 143Tanya‘s bright red birdcage veil makes me so very happy. I love how it doesn't seem to have any form to it, just a mass of red netting that looks perfectly in place somehow. So cool!

Say what?Misty's take on her red veil was a little different — not only was it bright red, but it was gathered in such a beautiful and unique way underneath her up-do.

Getaway car for yellow wedding dressLet us not forget… You need to see a yellow wedding dress with a matching cathedral veil today.

Tribe member Aemwhy rocked a ribbon veil with warm and happy oranges and yellows. She made it herself with the help of a friend.

Wanna see MOAR colored veils? Of course you do.

Comments on Don’t let dresses have all the fun: 15 colored veils to steal the show

  1. Lovely. When I started choosing wedding clothes for myself, my first purchase was a baby pink birdcage veil. I figured everything else could work around that.

    • That is awesome. I have been known to create outfits around accessories, too, and the results have been consistently good. I think that choosing something little that you LOVE and then building around it can help give focus to the creation of the outfit.

  2. I love this since I am wearing a flower wreath with colored tulle hanging down in a veil fashion. It makes me excited for my wedding!

  3. I have some light blue tulle that I got on sale, that is now becoming my veil! I cut it into four pieces and I’m going to sew it onto hair comb that is covered in rhinestones.

  4. I had a black birdcage veil with handmade octopus and red feathers fascinator.
    I promise I will submit our wedding soon!

    • @Mich- an octopus and red feathers OMG! that sounds so awesome!!! what was your theme?

  5. I love this! i just ordered a blue birdcage veil from ETSY a few days ago. that greay veil is gorgous!

  6. So pretty! I’m not a fan of veils normally but coloured ones just seem so much nicer.

  7. Davids Bridal has started selling red and black birdcage veils. They’re meant for BMs but a lot of brides have been buying them.

    I love seeing offbeat things in a traditional setting. 🙂

  8. I’ve actually made my veil already and it’s red and black lace with beading along the edge. I wonder if it’ll be cool enough to get featured. 😛

  9. I love how sort of spooky-romantic and antique the grey veil is.

    This post makes me rethink my position on veils entirely. HMMM!

    • Me, too. I was totally anti-veil for my wedding; if I’d seen a post like this before my wedding, I might have done things a bit differently.
