Remembrance Butterfly Veils

Consider sewing a small hidden butterfly for each family member who is watching on from heaven. The hidden butterflies will serve as a beautiful reminder that, even in their physical absence, your departed family members are always with you in spirit, sharing in your happiness, and watching over you from heaven.

It is a symbol of eternal love and the unbreakable bond between family members, even beyond the boundaries of life and death.

Sparkling Rhinestone or Resin Embellishments

If you're a fan of all things glittery and glamorous, consider adding subtle sparkling embellishments like crystals, sequins, or tiny pearls. The new favorite is the Sofia Richie inspired resin crystals that have a matte finish.

If you are a Disney - lover, you can even do a small Mickey Mouse in pearls or rhinestones.

Ombré or Dip-Dye Colored Veils

For a contemporary and artistic touch, experiment with an ombré or dip-dye effect on your veil. Choose colors that complement your wedding theme or even match your bouquet.

Covered in Flowers
