Pearls are the latest bridal trend to sweep the wedding sphere—we're seeing them everywhere, from big-day barrettes and button-down backs to veils. This option by Alyssa Kristin was composed of a simple, traditional base (a stretch of tulle!), but accented with the modern pearls. #weddingideas #wedding #marthstewartwedding #weddingplanning #weddingchecklist Chapel Length Veil, Nontraditional Wedding, Blue Wedding Dresses, Bohemian Bride, Wedding Veils, Weddingideas, Bridal, Tulle, Base

We're not sure what we love most about this dynamic chapel-length veil: It's romantic 3D dahlia appliqués, it's bow-tied edges, or the romantic vine motif embroidered around the edges. The accessory perfectly complemented the bride's lace Claire Pettibone wedding dress. #weddingideas #wedding #marthstewartwedding #weddingplanning #weddingchecklist Colored Wedding Dress, Blue Wedding Dresses, Wedding Veils, Rose Wedding, Bridal Veils, Garden Wedding, Wedding Hair, Forest Wedding, Floral Wedding

This classic veil option might be known as the bird cage, but this Butterfly Story veil is all about the butterflies.
