Flying Bridal Veils are the New Wedding Trend to Watch

by Bryce Gruber

Flying bridal veils are officially a thing.

If you’re wondering what a flying bridal veil even is, don’t worry, so were we until we saw video evidence of their actual existence. Yes, it works with just about every style of veil, so get ready to read our guide to how to wash a wedding veil — you’ll need the info for after.

This new trend popped up in China and involves a somewhat complex system of pulleys, ceiling-mounted rails, and weights to give the veil the appearance of literally flying through the air until it’s hovering over the bride’s head and magically pops right onto her gorgeous wedding day face. Now just imagine if this gimmick was added onto the camp wedding trend.

As of today, the video posted by Shanghaist has received over 14,000,000 views and continues to quickly climb. You can actually see the bride standing in the middle of the aisle waiting for her choice of flying bridal veils to come soaring at her from nearly-invisible tracks before disconnecting and wafting onto her head.

Tens of thousands of people around the world have shared the video in admiration, while some people seem confused, upset, and even disgusted with the major change in the traditional wedding ceremony.

We happen to think it’s adorable though, and just as whimsical as adding cheese wedding cakes or a large wedding dais to happiness-inspiring receptions.
