Looking at vintage veils and headpieces makes me giddy. Some of them are completely out there and some have come right back into style. Wrapped turban style, delicate lacy headbands, and long Juliet caps are the order of the day. Today's Superficial Snack is also a Vintage Snack! Let's take a look at some lovely and cool vintage veils and headpieces.
Are you wearing a vintage-style veil or hat to your wedding? Tell us about it.
Comments on Juliet caps, flowers, and lace: fabulous vintage veils and headpieces
so pretty! 🙂
PERFECT timing! I’ve been gathering lots of ideas of vintage coronets, juliet caps, and the like
Hadn’t been able to really “see” any of them making the look I want until now!
Thank you thank you thank you for putting up this article today

I’m making a headband (and dress) inspired by Grace Kelly’s. I’m going to be using lace that belonged to both my and my guys grandmothers.
My husband-to-be and I are both student nurses. I’m making my veil over a vintage-style nursing cap!
The dress that the “schoolmarm” is wearing reminds me of Kate Middleton’s dress a little.
Here is a vintage hairstyle I’ve been thinking about copying. The link is a photo of Princess Fawzia bint Fuad of Egypt. Doesn’t she look gorgeous?
I know, right? I think tiaras should be another option for vintage hair accessories. The best way to find such inspiration is Googling images of female royals from around the first several decades of the 20th century (or earlier!).
The collar/sleeves on that schoolmarm’s dress! So much lacey love.
Sigh … I love each and every one of these!
aha! the third one down is EXACTLY what I have been looking for!
I’m getting married next Friday, and I’m going to wear a veil that my grandfather bought in 1952 to be my Mum’s First Communion veil, even though it was actually a woman’s wedding veil. My Mum, all my female cousins, my sister and I wore this veil to our First Communions, and now I’m going to wear it to my wedding! It’ll be the veil’s 60th year of use, and the first time it will be worn for its original purpose. For me, it’ll be a tangible symbol of protection and love, as it has passed through the hands of so many of my loved ones.
That is so amazing!
Ah ha, so short hair can pull off a massive veil! I’m in awe of the gorgeousness, and completely inspired by that fourth pic.
I am planning to wear some sort of birdcage veil, to have my beloved 40’s style 🙂
