Past and Present: Royal Wedding Veils

Continuing our post on Royal Brides from yesterday, we’d like to focus on a perennial royal wedding tradition: cathedral length veils. Though tiaras may be an enduring mainstay of the royal wedding, we’re sure loving the modern twist on these vintage veils – especially cap and mantilla veils.

Some past royal brides whose headwear we’re crushing on in particular:
