Black Wedding Veil - Black Bridal Veil

Can you wear a black wedding veil? The answer is definitely, yes! Wedding style by tradition calls for white, but modern brides know that it is possible to look incredibly sophisticated and beautiful in a black veil. Black can be far more flattering and offers a contrast and drama that white can't quite pull off.  So, don't feel that you need to conform to tradition if a black bridal veil is more your style. The contract of black and white wedding style is also a very sophisticated option.  At Ellen Marie Design, we specialize in creating beautiful and unique wedding veils and headpieces including black, white, and every other color.

Black Wedding Veil Styles

Black Wedding Veils are a wonderful alternative to white for brides who enjoy wearing something a little different.  Black wedding veils come in all the same styles and types of bridal veils such as traditional black tulle wedding veils, and black birdcage veils made from French net or Russian veiling.  Whether long or short, we can create just the right veil to go with your dress or bridal gown.

Black Wedding Veil in Bridal Illusion Tulle

When one thinks of a black bridal veil, one of the first types of veils to come to mind is a traditional fine mesh known as bridal illusion, or bridal tulle.  This soft fine netting casts a soft glow around your face.  It is very feminine and yet dramatic at the same time.

Black Wedding Veils made from tulle veiling are available in any length, style, shape, and with as few (or as many) layers as you want.  They can be made in plain cut edge black veils, or with lace or accents, like the above veil with Venice Lace butterflies.  

Because we make the veil to order, all of our veils are fully customizable, and couture black wedding veils are surprisingly affordable.  Just contact us, and get the exact black bridal veil you have envisioned for your wedding style:

In addition to black wedding veils, other styles of black veils are appropriate to be worn for special occasions such as for parties, a night on the town, as bridesmaids veils, and so on.  Black veils are also traditional bereavement attire when worn as a black funeral veil to show respect for the passing of a close friend or loved one.
