Know Your Lace

The Juliet Cap: Kate Moss chose this face-framing style for her classically gorgeous English countryside wedding in 2011, and its bucolic beauty has been steadily gaining popularity ever since. Scarlett ivory tulle Juliet cap veil, $275 at Adele Amelia



The Birdcage: Equal parts sassy and sweet, a birdcage veil gives you all the pretty without the commitment of a full-length veil. It’s a chic choice for playful parties and waterfront soirees. Grace glimmer ivory tulle birdcage with Venice lace and pearls, $140 at Adele Amelia



The Mantilla: Tradition never goes out of style, and what could be more classic than a floor-length Spanish shawl? It’s perfect for vows at the dreamy Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. Francesca Chantilly lace veil with Alencon lace border (cathedral length), $875 at Adele Amelia
