Accents and Embellishments for Wedding Veils

 Below are pictures of several different types of beads available for embellishing a beaded wedding veil. Many times it's hard to picture exactly what is the difference between rhinestones, crystals, and other beads -- so hopefully these pictures and brief descriptions will help!  
All beads are applied to our veils with a durable jewel adhesive unless stated otherwise.


Rhinestone accents have a flat silver back and a beautiful sparkle on a wedding veil! They are available in 3 sizes (5mm, 4mm, 3mm).  If no special request for size is made, we typically use 3 and 4mm.  *It's quite popular to request a mix of 3mm and 4mm*

We have these available with an AB* finish as well.   And they can also be special ordered in various colors.  Please email us if you are looking for a color other than the standard crystal and crystalAB.

*AB stands for Aurora Borealis.  It is a bead treatment inspired by Northern Lights. It is a coating applied to beads that creates a rainbow or iridescent effect.


Crystals are more round shaped (like a ball) with facets on all sides.  These have a clear sparkle and match almost everything!  We also have CrystalAB available at special request (NO additional charge).
     Available in 2 sizes (4mm and 3mm).  If no special request for size is made, we'll use our discretion.  Typically for veils shorter than 42" we'll use 3mm.  On longer veils we'll mix both 3mm and 4mm using using more 4mm towards the bottom of the veil.  

Pearls (faux)

 Most everyone is familiar with pearls.  These are round and available in 3 sizes (4mm, 3mm, and 2.5mm).  If no special request for size is made, we'll typically use 3mm.  These are available in white and ivory.  

Seed Beads

  Also known as rocaille beads these are quite small, match just about everything, and fabulous for mixing with other accents!  They come in a variety of colors.  We keep crystal clear, crystalAB, silver-lined, and gold-lined in stock.  These make a great edging.
  The larger silver lined bead size (8/0) to the left and above is a slightly larger seed bead (about the same size as a 3mm crystal).  Due to the special cut on the inside they have a Wonderful sparkle and make a beautiful edging!  If you like the size of the crystal band edge, but would like a silver sparkle the 8/0 beads are perfect!  These are now available in gold as well.

Bugle Beads

These measure approx. 1/4" in length and have a beautiful sparkle!  They look great spaced along the edging of a veil, or mixed with other beads along the bottom edge.  We keep clear, rainbow clear (clear with an AB finish), ice, silver-lined, and gold-lined bugles in stock.  Other colors may be available at special request. 

Lightly Scattered Embellishments

Lightly scattered beads throughout thecustom wedding veil.  This is the most common accent chosen.  When customizing your veil you'll be able to choose the bead, or mix of beads you'd like scattered on each layer of your custom wedding veil.
