It takes me quite a while to get to the “popular movies.” Sometimes that’s a good thing. Other times it’s more of a “burden,” the latter because it’s no longer cool to talk about said movies and all the cool kids are over it. Still I finally did watch one of the cool kids (far as Hallmark fans are concerned) movies and today we share thoughts on The Wedding Veil: Unveiled.
The Wedding Veil: Unveiled (2022) Hallmark Film Review
Leaving for Italy for about two months means that Emma (Autumn Reeser) is busy with last minute packing. But her two best friends Avery (Lacey Chabert) and Tracy (Allison Sweeney) aren’t about to let her leave without saying goodbye even if they all do live scattered around. While she’s heading to Italy for a lecture series she’s teaching, she also has a mission. She plans to learn about the legend of the veil she and her friends bought. Of course, the legend also says that anyone possessing the veil is destined to meet their soul mate. Having just married, Avery believed the legends while Emma is more than a little bit skeptical.

The sequel or “middle child” if you will of the three part Hallmark wedding veil movie trilogy (based on a novel by Lori Wilde), this movie is fun because it’s more of a drastic change. This helps to set it apart especially given there is always something to connecting the stories which is the veil. The pretty moments and things that are here to help highlight Italy is fun and anyone who adores the 2010 film Letters to Juliet will enjoy the nod to the Juliet wall and balcony.
Moving past its unique DNA, it’s just nice to see the friends together again. We have this strong and lasting friendship that’s really charming to see and is allowed more room to grow given we see them over three movies. The acting is fine and you’ll also see Pаolo Bernаrdini (in his Hallmark debut) play the usual Italian charmer. Some of the dialogue isn’t my favorite and feels a little more amateur than I’ve come to see from the network. That said, the story is so sweet we can forgive almost anything.
If you appreciated or enjoyed the aspects of Lacey’s (aka Avery) story in The Wedding Veil, you’ll feel similarly here. It has sweet moments like any peer. Only make sure to keep your ears trained; that Italian dialogue comes at us fast.
