Embroidered Details

When Hayley Bieber got married she sparked a new trend by having ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ embroidered at the bottom of her veil and its something we are seeing more of. Choosing wedding accessories as a bride is one of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding. One traditional bridal piece that has evolved over the years and always makes a statement is the veil.
