Timeless juliet cap veils for modern brides
Juliet cap veils play an important part in styling your vintage-inspired bridal look. From the wedding dress to the bouquet, each element of your look can set the mood of your event. The accessories you choose to complete your dress should make a statement: the wedding veil especially as it frames you from your head to your toes. For modern romantics looking for a nod to the past, juliet cap veils are a striking piece to add modern day glamour to even the simplest wedding dress.

A glimpse into history
It is believed the juliet cap veil derives its name from the iconic Shakespearean character, Juliet, in the original “Romeo and Juliet”. This delicate headpiece and veil style was popularised in the early 20th century and became a symbol of grace and femininity. The unique design features a small, close-fitting cap that adorns the head, graced with lace, embroidery and hand beading. To finish the look, a soft sheer veil is attached to cascade down the bride’s shoulders and onto the dress.
The style has been worn throughout the decades by modern muses including Jackie Onassis Kennedy, Grace Kelly and Kate Moss as seen below.
