Vintage Bridal HeadpiecesWords by Jennifer Stein Words by Brandy Gomez-Duplessis
Growing up like so many young girls, I had dreams of what my wedding would be like. I knew what my gown was going to look like, how I would style my hair, how long my cathedral veil would be, what lipstick shade I would wear, and of course I knew that my bottle of Coco Chanel No. 5 would be the scent to adorn my body. Looking back now, vintage brides from the 20's and 40's have always been my bridal inspiration. Besides the boat neck necklines and tea length wedding dresses, the fancy headpieces are my second favorite item of a vintage bride. The birdcage veil, mantilla bridal veil, and pillbox hats are some of the most popular vintage headpieces that are being recycled. Below are fabulous headpieces that a modern destination bride can wear when walking down the aisle in a grand cathedral, at an outdoor sculpture garden, or on a white sandy beach.
