When I was ten years old my grandmother was knee deep in a bridal veil business she started from scratch. With no formal millinery or artistic training she hand crafted bridal veils with plastic pearls, a glue gun and love. I am not even sure she made money but she was obsessed with creating the right piece for the bride to be.
My grandmother was married at seventeen and wore a pillbox hat. Her wedding photo hung in her house despite being remarried and decades later it hangs in my bedroom. Thanks to my grandmother, I equate beautiful bridal headpieces with pillbox hats. Perhaps it’s the fact that I am newly engaged or my love for vintage inspired fashion but I am smitten with the millinery beauties by Preston & Olivia.
Can I wear navy as a bride? It’s too perfect not to be considered!
