Are you in the market for something a little different in a wedding veil? Sure you could snag a cool wedding hat, an elaborate headpiece, or a sleek and stylish crown, but sometimes you want the grandeur of a VEIL. A birdcage, a flowing cathedral, a flowery crown with tulle… but with a twist!
I found some gorgeous doozies with colors, vintage elements, dip dyes, embroidery, stars, custom words(!), and just tons of rad and unexpected details. Here are some of my favorite alternative wedding veils…

“We love all things Halloween and horror movies, so there was no question about the theme of our wedding: Hallowedding! We both wore floor-length lace gowns and veils, one black and one ivory. My favorite part of my dress was the black and gray sash with spider emblem that Diane made.” This Hallowedding has it all from spooky glam fashion to horror-themed decor…
This Western Australian goth garden wedding was slightly gothic, slightly rock and roll, and 100% amazing. Don’t miss the awesome two-song processional, stunning blue corset gown, tearful ceremony, and almost-disastrous cake save!
This secular wedding was a mix of all things dark and gorgeous: a gothic cemetery, a bar venue with amazing food and surprisingly affordable cocktails, and fabulous dark outfits including a Wedding Dress Fantasy gown of our goth-loving dreams. Pair it with the bride’s perfectly red hair and the groom’s killer ink, and this avant garde wedding slays us.
