“So, how was the bride?” That’s the first question I ask when people share details of a wedding they recently attended. It doesn’t matter if I actually know the bride; I am just curious to find out what she looked like on her big day. Was her dress traditional and princess-like, or did she make a statement by opting for modern trousers? How about the hair – did she have beach waves or a structured ponytail?
For me, there are three types of brides: Firstly, we have the ones who overdo it and end up having heavy makeup, big hair, shiny fabrics, and all kinds of embellishments on their wedding dresses. Then we have the fashionista bride, the one who blindly follows the trends set by celebrities and knows all the “must-do’s” of a wedding.
And finally we have the third bride, the one who knows that a wedding should reflect the couple’s character. She has a unique approach on fashion and she’s not afraid of setting the trends instead of following them. She is the bride who challenges traditions and stereotypes.
Inspired by the third type of bride, The Veil proudly launches its website by celebrating the uniqueness of its reader. For that reason, we search for the most extraordinary, unique, fun ideas with one person in mind: not your usual bride.
