Macramé Wedding Veil Future Bride

“Macrame is effortless”

Catherine Malandrino


Veils are the crowns of any bridal ensemble. Asides from your wedding gown (See what to do with the dress, post wedding, HERE), veils are the eye-grabbers, and choosing the right one is no easy feat for the bride-to-be. Maybe you’re an alternative bride who doesn’t want the classic tulle or lace veil but still wants to give a gracious nod to an age-long tradition. You want something different from your regular weddingideas… something non-traditional. Macramé might just be the answer to your veil-lemma—see what we did there?

A macramé wedding headband lets you include a veil in your bridal trousseau without looking too traditional. You’re still sticking to the script, but with a boho, fringy twist.


But, there’s the big question.

What is macramé?

Trendsetting. Carefree.  Effortless. Ethereal. These words perfectly describe the macramé design. This beautiful textile style is made from yarn or cotton strings intricately knotted into specific patterns which can be worn as clothing or kept as ornaments.

The macramé era didn’t just appear from nowhere, it’s been around for ages. Before Pinterest and social media made it popular, decorative macramé towels and napkins were used as wall hangings in ancient Arabic civilizations. In fact, the name macramé may have originated from the Arabic word “migramah” meaning ornamental fringe.

The art of macramé knotting soon made its way to Europe and became a favorite pastime of the elite. It’s even rumoured that Queen Victoria gave macramé lessons to the noble ladies in her court.

After a while, macramé was stuffed into the musty chests of dated fashion. Until the 70’s happened. Macraméd waistcoats, purses, and jewelry became the badge of the free-spirited. It was glorious, but it didn’t last long.

However, macramé is back and it’s all the rage in the wedding scene. Many couples are opting for some form of macramé in their wedding plans. Why won’t they? The warm, homely feel is breathtaking. It transforms any wedding venue—beach, glade, field, or barn—into a sight from a fairy tale. 

And a macramé wedding band is the best way to incorporate this wonderful feeling into your special day.
