August Veils has been a constant in the Portland bridal industry for many years. Founded in 1999 by Andrea, August Veils has helped many brides complete their wedding day look with the one thing that changes the feel of an elegant gown into a wedding gown… a veil. With so many trends over the years, August Veils has kept up with the needs and desires of Pacific Northwest brides, helping to create both modern and timeless custom pieces to suit each brides’ personality and style.

At August Veils we specialize not only in creating new veils and headpieces, but also in updating a treasured heirloom and giving it new life, while maintaining the history and connection that each item carries. August Veils has seen everything from a 100 year old gown being turned into a veil, to using pieces of a 1980’s headpiece as hair pins to compliment a more boho style, to simply placing heirloom lace on a new veil. There are so many amazing ways to bring that connection into a current wedding day, and keep those loved ones close.

Current owner and lead designer, Bethany, has been in the bridal industry since 2010. Starting out as a bridal stylist at a local salon, she fell in love with the magic of weddings, and how the right accessory can complete a bridal style. She began working for Andrea in 2017 and learned all she could about creating beautiful veils and headpieces to complete any bride’s look. When Andrea decided to retire in 2021, Bethany was honored to take over August Veils and to continue her legacy.

I'm a Veil Bride!

I didn’t realize I was into veils until I tried one on while wedding dress shopping. Then once I found my dream dress Charlotte’s hosted a trunk show with August Veils. I got to try on multiple veils to find the perfect one for my dress for my minimony and my bigger wedding. I loved the Bella veil for my minimony; it was timeless and retro with a satin edge. I loved the Stella veil for my bigger wedding dress; it was dramatic and covered in little pearls. I got both cleaned and preserved, but I wish I could live in my veils. They’re such fine material but so securely attached to the comb without excess material, and the comb was metal and big enough to stay very secure in my hair. I also got the Deanna Pearl pins for my hair decorations and used them for both weddings. Bethany was great to work with and helped make my dress-shopping experience wonderful and easy.

Vintage Veil Restyling Wizard

I feel so lucky to live in a city that has it's very own vintage veil expert! Bethany at August Veils brought my veil visions to life. After finding an antique cathedral length veil on Etsy, I loved so much about it but, needed help to make it realistically wearable. Bethany reshaped the internal structure to sit properly on my head and frame my face. She also installed sturdy clips. Despite the weight of such a long veil, it was comfortable & didn't budge. Most importantly, Bethany was extremely professional and very patient with my many questions. She taught me how to put on the veil and store it correctly. Her skill and guidance made what was initially an intimidating accessory into a totally wearable and show stopping part of my wedding day.

Andrea is amazing! She is very professional and has a great eye for alterations. She made me look and feel great in my wedding dress. There's no one else I would have trusted with such an important task! She also made me a beautiful veil. I would highly recommend August Veils to others.
