What is a Juliet cap veil?
Juliet cap veils are a simply stunning choice for brides looking to channel bohemian or vintage style on their big day.
This type of wedding veil features a cloche style cap, which is synonymous with the 1920s, with an attached veil. They are traditionally made from tulle and are sometimes adorned with embellishments such as lace edging, beading and Swarovski crystals.
The History Of Juliet Cap Veils
It is thought that the Juliet cap veil was so named after the bell-shaped cloche cap work by actors portraying Juliet Capulet from Shakespeare’s iconic play Romeo and Juliet back in the 16th century. But it’s popularity as a wedding veil really came into its own around 1910 and endured for many years following that, thanks to its whimsical, ethereal aesthetic.
For this reason, Juliet cap veils have become synonymous with bridal style from the 1920s and 30s, favoured by iconic women on their wedding day including first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, Mexican actress Linda Christian, and of course Grace Kelly back in the 1950s.
How To Wear A Juliet Cap Veil
We love Juliet cap veils so much. They can be worn to create a romantic, chic vintage look that’s all at once striking and effortless, making for the perfect balance for all kinds of brides to be.
Juliet cap veils are traditionally worn low across the forehead or pushed back towards the crown. We think they look fantastic as a compliment to loose hairstyles, like low messy buns or long tumbling curls.
