French wedding veil

My jaw dropped when I saw this French bride Fanny's lace veil. She looks so old-fashioned and romantic, and I love how it's wrapped under her hair. Would you go for a wedding veil?

P.S. Four more wedding veils: Vintage, birdcage, kissable and poofy.

I love the tradition of a bridal veil. The picture of the romantic wedding veil is beautiful! Very ethereal.

Caroline said...

Stunning!! I think veils mean more when it is either a tradition or if it has been part of the family. I love the veil gorgeous!

Julie-Inspired said...

Diana Mieczan said...

Btw: I just looked at her dress on OnceWed..I so would wear it. The back side is my favourite...and the veil is so long...Stunning!

I love that. It's so beautiful and romantic with her braids!

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

oh wow, gorgeous veil. i got engaged a month ago - but am now starting to wedding plan, so i'm adding things to my wedding list of inspiration. this is so simple yet beautiful!

Signorina Svizzera said...

I've always dreamed of a veil like this one, especially after watching "Manon des Sources" when I was 15. In the 6 years since then I haven't wavered, so I'm pretty sure that whenever I do get married, I will be wearing a veil like this :)
Also-Thank you for putting this up! Now I can show people what I mean other than saying "go rent a VHS(!) of this weird French movie, fast-forward to the end, and tell me what you think" :) haha.

Kathy Besser said...

Joanna, thank you for my daily dose of gorgeousness. Your blog is the BEST!

Stephanie said...

I didn't wear a veil at my wedding, because there was a lot of beading on the back of my dress and I didn't want to cover it up! But I think the veil/no veil thing really depends on the dress. I think the veil works with this bride's dress though!

esdelope said...

I love her braids! Gosh what I would give to figure out how to do that to my hair!

Cassandra Marie said...

Ughh...it bugs me that you can't see her face fully in any of the photos! But you're right, that veil is magical :)

khristian a. howell said...

oh, so gorgeous and romantic! makes me want to do it all over again with my current perspective. (to the same wonderful hubby of course!)

Simone said...

That is just so pretty and romantic!!

I had a dress with quite a long train and then my veil covered the whole train...I'd always dreamed of that :)

Ludmila {creamylife.com} said...

Oh I actually HAD exactly the same veil, only that I didn't wrap it :). here's a link where you can see it http://www.creamylife.com/occasions-and-holidays/7477/our-magical-wedding.html

Tucker said...

sooo incredible. absolutely beautiful!

Sidereal Day said...

Beautiful and Romantic, I love the look of the braids under the lace.

Dancing Branflake said...

I was adamantly against a veil... until I tried one on with my dress and I fell in love. When the veil is the focal point it adds so much beauty and attention to the face. Love this one.

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

THIS IS STUNNNNING.

[anna] said...

LOVE. so romantic and magical!

Rachel Dangerfield said...

So beautiful.

I'm a big fan of mantilla veils. Perfectly romanticand feminine :)

Laughter-Loving Stacy said...

Very beautiful! I don't think that would be a good look for me on my wedding day, though. :)

Breathless said...

Beauuuutifuuul.

Ans said...

I love the bridal veil!!!

Nell said...

OMG, this is so beautiful. So French! xx

Deanna (Silly Goose Farm) said...

I wore a chapel-length veil with little pearls on it that perfectly matched my dress. The dress was all tulle on the bottom, and my train and the veil kind of blended into each other, it looked cool. Although, wearing so much fabric at an outdoor wedding was a little tricky. Our photog got some great pics of my husband picking little twigs off my dress/veil. I also wore it under my bun/hair, instead of on top. I really love how it all worked together.

Luna : said...

wow its stunning! i think classic is the way to go

Looks Good To Me said...

Ahh! I loved this veil too!! The bride's whole look is stunning and unique. Not to mention she's GORGEOUS.

gemma said...

gorgeous!

PoetessWug said...

I absolutely would wear a veil...and did wear one 28 years ago. Mine was sort of like the "Kissable" one you linked to. I still love it!! :-)

Salut, Shoshana! said...

I love it, would definitely wear it.

Rachael said...

OMG, my jaw dropped too! So beautiful!! I love how old-fashioned and simple it looks.

Mocha Mornings said...

I definitely want a veil. I am not even engaged, but I dream of my wedding almost daily. (Comes with the territory of being a girl, right?)

amynicole said...

Why do French people have to be so beautiful?! Her veil is beyond breathtaking, the groom is a stud, and I'm sure the rest of the ceremony was whimsical.

Victoria said...

I didn't have a wedding veil, but this looks so pretty and romantic.

Chaucee said...

I would definitely go for a veil if it looks like this. Otherwise a definite no!

Jamie said...

I saw that on OnceWed and i thought it had the potential to be super pretty but ended up looking more like a hair net :( The way its tied around her head isn't the most flattering, imo. I also wished there had been at least one good close up of her from the front, so we could at least see what that looks like from the other side. however i LOVE wedding veils and wore one myself in my wedding 3 months ago.

Cin said...

Beautiful but how did it stay up? My hair is so stubborn that it would have taken too many pins to keep it up. I'll admire it from afar.

Mariko said...

Gorgeous. I wanted a very specific wedding veil but then we couldn't find it and I ended up with one I hated. I'm still lamenting it.

Melissa Blake said...

I love that...looks so classy! xoxo

Stacey said...

not loving it, she looks like she's going to clean something.

Kristin said...

That is ridiculously glamorous. WOW!

Melanie said...

The Girlie Blog said...

It's interesting. Never seen something like this before!

Ittny said...

Oh she looks gorgeous and I love the veil

size too small said...

i know- i saw this and loved it. i decided not to wear a veil during the ceremony but wore one for some of the pictures.

liv said...

It's nice, a bit different and not so fluffy. I think it depends on your hair and face, can look fab but it can also be a bit too much. Nce to see something different though!

Anonymous said...

Ooh, so pretty!

Emily said...

oh wow, i am sooo ready for fall. primarily for the clothes, but pumpkin-flavored things doesn't hurt either.

jacjewelry said...

Wow, I love her look and all the other pictures from the links. How amazing would it have been to get married in France!

Annie said...

that's the most romantic veil I've ever seen!

jonahliza said...

this is just darling and and oh so romantic!

Anonymous said...

I found this ridiculously disturbing. If you jump to the link there are many photos of the wedding, and never one shot of the woman's face, but you do see the groom. A veil indeed in the most conservative and objectifying sense.

AmyPunky said...

Hi! I'm the lucky photographer who has photographed this wedding which was truly beautiful. Thank you all for your sweet comments! Regarding the lack of pictures of the bride's face, here's the reason why: the bride herself decided she doesn't want to have her face posted on all the internet, and I respect her choice. Please, respect her choice too. Thanks very much for the featuring, Joanna! You've totally made my day!
