Our Mission

ClassicVeils.com launched in 2013 with a vision to revolutionise the bridal veil industry.

We offer high-quality, customizable bridal veil designs at an affordable price, along with the best customer service possible!

How We Do It

We became experts in all things veil related.

Partnering with the best veil manufacturer in the U.S. (they’ve been in business for 24 years!) allows us to work closely with them throughout the veil creation process.

Finally, we implemented systems to provide brides, their moms (and even grandmas) with an effortless process to envision, create, and order a perfect bridal veil and accessories from the comfort of their own home.

The founder

Veil expert and wedding blogger Meredith Shackleford, went dress shopping for her own wedding back in 2013. She realized how ridiculously expensive it was shopping in a bridal boutique, especially for bridal accessories. After searching in local boutiques, she just couldn’t find the right veil for her big day.

Circumstances aligned to allow her to solve this pain point for brides — including herself — and ClassicVeils.com was born.

“I believe that how you get to the moment of holding your custom bridal veil in person is just as important as getting to the final design. Each step of my process is so important. I don’t believe in perfection, but I frequently ask myself, ‘How can I do things better?’”

Creating a place where brides can find their dream veil without the astronomical price tag has always been at the heart of her brand ideal.

“Our process is part of the reason you can feel truly confident about buying your bridal veil and accessories online.”

Meredith and her team of expert brial consultants are available to help you complete your wedding day look!

Four things that make ClassicVeils

Our Values

1   Traditions

Although some traditions may seem outdated, they are still important and can represent a critical piece of our culture. In a room full of white dresses, the veil is what sets the bride apart from the rest.

2   Experiences

“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.” 
Life is about experiences. Make sure each one counts.

3  Knowledge

Think outside the box and dare to be different — like wearing a pink veil!

Be a leader not a follower.

Educate, discover, create, and challenge yourself.

Keep growing every day.

4  Quality over Quantity

Owning items of quality that you love brings stories and clarity to your life rather than clutter and fog.
