Powder Blue Bijoux Mantilla Cathedral Veil, $217

The traditional long white lace veil has made a comeback in the last few years, especially when layered over a simple vintage wedding dress. Typically made of satin and silk, long veils usually have lace detailing lining the face and are the perfect way to soften your style, giving off an ethereal, vintage look.

There’s no doubting the fact it’s the era of the bridal crown. These intricate, detailed pieces are a favourite among modern brides due to their simplicity and versatility with different hairstyles, and they can be quite daring and eye-catching if you’re looking to blow your wedding guests away.
