When Bollywood stylist Rhea Kapoor walked down the aisle with producer Karan Boolani, the bride wowed everyone with her stunning Anamika Khanna ensemble. But most importantly, what caught all of us off-guard (and for the better!) was her choice of veil. Replacing the traditional dupatta style veil with a pearl veil from Birdhichand Ghanshyamdas Jewellers, the style icon proved to us once more why we idolise her.

Rhea's statement piece glimmered in the spotlight on her head, showing us yet another way to make a bride stand out.  And if you're a bride looking to make a similar statement at your wedding, here are a few jewellery pieces inspired by Rhea Kapoor's pearl veil that will leave a lasting impact on onlookers.
