Ever since I bookmarked this bridal hood from Etsy seller Mata Hari’s Daughter (who creates uh-may-zing stuff, fyi), I have been just dying to know what you gorgeous people think about the look. Is the bridal hood the wave of the future or a relic of the past that should not be unearthed? Would you wear one on your wedding day as a bridal veil alternative?
From the sale page description: “Melt hearts in this exquisite art deco inspired veiled headdress. Veils are 26″ in length and hand beaded along the bottom edge with silver lined glass seed beads and Victorian cut steel beads. The frame is built over milliners wire to support the fluid tulle and frame the face.” And the price? $285
I don’t know if I could pull off the look, frankly. When I try to picture myself in a bridal hood, the image that forms in my mind is very costumey. But at the same time, isn’t the wedding ensemble by its very nature a costume? So maybe it wouldn’t look so out of place after all!
