An Evening in Florence

A bridal cape is a unique and beautiful addition to elevate a wedding dress. Whether your gown is simple and sleek or features detailed embroidery or lacework, there is a bridal cape for almost every gown. From long and flowing detachable panels that secure at your shoulder straps to a delicate and sheer cape that hug your shoulders and covers your back and arms, bridal capes are the perfect option when you don’t want to wear a veil but love the idea of sheer fabrics flowing romantically behind you as you walk down the aisle.

Be inspired by the beautiful bridal capes below that will make you feel like you can fly.

We took a lace wedding cape to a whole new level for bride Alexandra. We transformed the untamed floral details of our RIVIERA veil and reimagined it to form the ultimate accessory to elevate the clean lines and sleek silhouette of her wedding dress.

The end result? A bridal cape that’s the perfect alternative to a wedding veil.

A custom lace wedding cape

Alexandra’s vision was for a cape that accentuated her wedding dress with a long silhouette, reminiscent of a wedding veil. She loved our RIVIERA veil with its characteristic lace details, floral elements and scattered pearls. Completely hand embellished to perfection.

The details of Alexandra’s RIVIERA cape speaks of bold femininity and a timeless beauty with a contemporary twist.  Bringing the essence of the veil into Alexandra’s cape felt like its natural evolution.

We loved working with Alexandra to bring together her bridal look and feel immense gratitude for the opportunity to bring her vision to life.
