After my post regarding the flawlessly chic, vintage wedding of Kate Moss and her absolutely stunning veil, I had a mini Juliet cap veil infatuation!
As a bride I chose not to have a veil – now I wonder why?! (although I still adore my deco inspired asymmetric hairband! ) The incredible Vera Wang says “The wedding veil is at once sacred and seductive“ and I couldn’t agree more – especially some of the glorious veils I came across, they would simply be the crowning accessory for any vintage inspired bride!
Today, the Juliet Cap Veil is associated with the 1920’s and 30’s and images of Brides with huge oversized bouquets, wearing gorgeous silk bias cut wedding dresses but it was originally fashioned in the 16th Century! The name actually stems from that most romantic Shakespeare play ‘Romeo and Juliet’ – original drawings of Juliet depicted her wearing a cap that fit neatly to the top of her head.
