Canvas for self-expression and creativity: Why choosing a colourful veil is the ultimate bridal statement

In the world of weddings, where tradition often reigns, brides are increasingly seeking ways to defy convention and add personal style and flair to their big day. While traditional bridal attire often revolves around shades of white, embracing colour opens up a world of possibilities for creating a truly unforgettable look. If you don’t want to go all the way and have a colourful wedding dress, one of the most stunning ways to make a statement while walking down the aisle is by choosing a colourful veil. Far from conventional white or ivory, the infusion of colour adds a new dimension to these traditional bridal accessories, turning them into striking symbols of individuality and creativity. 

Colourful veils are everywhere in the social media world of bridal wear, and they are stunning! Unfortunately, these beautiful veils are usually made of stiff and scratchy polyester, so they are neither sustainable nor luxurious to touch and wear. We realised that there are virtually no colourful veil options for brides looking for a sustainable colourful veil, so we made one, the Carly veil. The Carly veil turned out to be so beautiful and popular that we added two more colour ways to the Carly veil and two veils with different colourful patterns. In this blog post, we'll share four reasons why we think opting for a colourful veil is the perfect choice for the modern bride.

Like wedding dresses, colourful veils serve as a means of self-expression on one’s wedding day. In societies where tradition may be the norm, choosing to adorn oneself with colours instead of white can be a rebellious act, asserting one's individuality. Your wedding day is a reflection of your unique love story, so why not let your bridal look reflect your personal style? Choosing a colourful veil allows you to infuse your bridal attire with hues that hold special meaning to you and your partner, whether it's a shade that matches your wedding theme or simply your favourite colour.


Symbolism and tradition

In the past, white veils were associated with innocence and purity, which are not qualities anyone expects modern brides to have. Colourful veils offer the perfect opportunity to embrace different cultural traditions and symbolism. In many cultures, specific colours hold significant meaning, representing love, prosperity, or good fortune. By incorporating these hues into your bridal ensemble, you can honour your heritage and add depth to your wedding day rituals.

Unlike traditional white tulle veils that may sit in a closet collecting dust after the wedding day, a colourful veil offers endless reusability. If you choose a 3 metre long colourful veil, you have quite a bit of material to work with and can incorporate it into your summer wardrobe by having it recreated into a dress, skirt, or blouse. It can even be used to make a dress or two for your daughter. Imagine the joy of wearing a special piece of clothing made of your colourful veil on anniversaries, date nights, or milestone celebrations, keeping the magic of your wedding day alive for years to come.


Visual impact

From a photographer's perspective, a colourful veil adds an extra element of visual interest and creativity to your wedding pictures. Against a backdrop of lush greenery, sandy beaches, or urban landscapes, the colours of your veil will pop out, creating stunning photos that you'll cherish for the rest of your life.

Choosing a colourful veil is a powerful way to infuse your bridal look with personality, symbolism, and visual impact, ensuring that your special day is as unique and unforgettable as you are. We encourage you to break free from convention, and let your colourful veil radiate your unique personality and authenticity as you embark on this new chapter of your life.
