Allegedly originating in ancient Rome, the traditional bridal veil's history is indeed a long one. Declaration of status, protection from evil spirits, chastity and modesty were all wrapped up in its rich symbolism. Today's modern bride doesn't necessarily choose a traditional bridal veil for those same reasons. But opting to go with a flowing tulle veil is still a lovely way to express one's personality with meaning and flair. All wedding veils from The Feathered Head - be they ivory, white, colored, lace or feathered - are restored vintage and thus bring with them their own unique history and style. So whether choosing one from our Collection, or contacting us to help you source one of any length, we'll make sure that you walk down the aisle with elegance and old world beauty.
And now for something completely different! Upend your notions about what a bride "should" wear and express your sense of romance with absolute individuality. Marlys is vintage elegance personified with an outrageous twist of whimsy and style. She starts out subtly with a delicately patterned, asymmetrical ivory vintage veil with soft bunching at the top. At the base of the folds sits a single 3" vintage alabaster silk rose with two small green leaves. And then the knock-out punch! Fanning out from the rose are 18 curved ivory feathers measuring approximately 11", each of which can be seen from the front or back rising above your head! They move and sway with every step you take, adding to your absolutely 100% one-of-a-kind stunning look. Marlys is for the bride who wants to combine tradition with a fabulously bold statement. Top to bottom veil with bunching measures 19" (hanging portion of veil 13.5"). Full length with feathers 26". Golden-rimmed 2.75" clear comb on back.

Verte is a gorgeous 1950's wedding veil that delivers breezy layers, flirty details and color, color, color! This illusion veil features two-toned olive and celadon green tulle in many pointed layers with embroidered pink and yellow flowers sprinkled throughout the netting. And just when you think it can't get any better, there's more! Verte also features matching flower appliqués along with complementary pink, yellow, white and green feathers along her back headpiece. Three pale biot feathers sprout from the headband to add bounce and movement (and welcome the season). We think Verte would be spot-on perfect for a bride who wants a special veil that expresses her unique personality but also nods to tradition. Perfect for a Spring garden wedding, an offbeat theme or as a burst of color for a bridesmaid's veiled headpiece. Clear comb on back.
