Knowing how much brides spend on their dresses, veils and accessories for the day of the wedding, not to mention hair and makeup, we found an accessory that will help you showcase all those beautiful things. Voted 2012 Best Accessory by Wedding Industry Experts, magnetic veil weights called Save the Veil make sure that your veil stays in place even in the windiest of situations.
Designer Jill Watson was tired of seeing brides struggling with their veils for pictures or outdoor ceremonies and thought there had to be a better way. She came up with the perfect solution – veil weights that attach right to the end of the veil. They are easy to put on and take off and are perfectly suited for the delicate fabrics.
Not only are these clever accessories practical, but they also look beautiful. They aren’t going to take away from your gown or veil, but rather enhance everything while keeping the veil down. You can choose from four different styles: oval with Swarovski crystal, oval with mother of pearl, round with Swarovski crystal and round with mother of pearl. The rounds are ¾ inch each and ovals are ¾ inch by ½ inch each. Jill suggests that 3-6 pieces are enough to control most veils, which is why she bundled them into 6 piece packages for $65.00 per set.
After the wedding, not only will you have beautiful pictures and memories, but also a keepsake you can continue to use over and over again. You can wear the veil weights as jewelry, use them as magnets to hang up your wedding photos or even pass them down from generation to generation or even on to a good friend.
We love Jill’s solution to the wind, especially for beach weddings. Anything that can help a bride and groom enjoy the day and be able to look back fondly at their photos with great memories, makes us happy. We are so glad we found Save the Veil and were so excited to try out the weights. We hope you are just as excited to try them out as we were!
