Wedding trends, just like their ready-to-wear counterparts, shift from season to season. Just as varied as the gowns themselves, creative wedding veil styles abound. To get a better idea of what we can expect from brides walking down the aisle in 2018, we asked fashion and beauty editor Shelley Brown of wedding destination The Knot to weigh in. While long tulle veils à la Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy made a comeback this year, Brown and her team are anticipating long veils with embellishments to be popular in 2018. She says, “It’s a very elaborate way to make your entire wedding day look feel cohesive.”
