To complete her ensemble, the bride wore a single layer of illusion, trimmed in satin and scattered with Swarovski crystals which framed her face and flowed beyond her train. To further enhance her veil, the bride wore a Swarovski crystal hair piece, at the top of her veil that she later put in her hair at the reception.
