From Wedding Bliss to Baby's Crib: The Story of a Repurposed Bridal Veil

Updated: Apr 14

Investing in a bespoke embroidered veil from Rebecca Anne Designs is a beautifully sentimental design journey, adding an extra layer of bespoke elegance to your bridal style. Afterwards however, as the echoes of your special day live on, a natural question often arises: what shall I do with my veil after my wedding? How can this cherished piece carry its magic beyond the ceremony? How can I repurpose my bridal veil?

Repurposing your bridal veil on your baby's crib is a lovely way to use and display your veil with meaning after a wedding

Repurpose your veil for generations to come

Many brides opt to carefully box away their beloved veils, preserving them as precious heirlooms for future generations to repurpose the bridal veil on their own wedding day. This traditional approach ensures that the exquisite craftsmanship and sentimental value of the veil endure through time, creating a legacy of love and beauty for years to come.

Dressing a baby's crib with your repurposed bridal veil

Yet, there are those, like Rebecca Anne bride Charlotte, who choose a beautifully imaginative path for their cherished accessory. For her wedding to Dennis, Charlotte collaborated with me on a custom veil that would not only complement her bridal look but also carry a hidden message by her fingertips for her Dutch groom – the embroidered words "ik hou van jou," translating to 'I love you' in Dutch. This bespoke touch added a layer of personalisation and cultural significance to their special day.

The magic doesn't end at the altar for brides like Charlotte. Instead, it finds new life in unexpected places. Fast forward to the nursery of Charlotte and Dennis, where the veil has been repurposed to adorn the crib of their newborn, Finley. The Dutch embroidery, once a sweet secret shared between bride and groom, now weaves its tale into the fabric of family life, creating a bridge between the past and the future.

Charlotte's choice to repurpose her Rebecca Anne Designs veil showcases the endless possibilities that lie beyond the wedding day for your bespoke piece. Whether carefully boxed for future generations or ingeniously repurposed in a nursery, your custom veil is more than an accessory – it becomes timeless threads connecting the chapters of a love story.
