Bringing full circle a story is one that The Wedding Veil: Legacy is sweet, but also sometimes “too much.” That said, this trilogy from Hallmark is sweet and promotes its usual family ties.
The Wedding Veil: Legacy (2022) Hallmark Film Review
Cynical still, Tracy (Alison Sweeney) is the last of her girlfriends to marry. Her best friends Avery (Lacey Chabert) and Emma (Autumn Reeser) both found their Mr. Right and attribute this to the antique veil they own. Now it’s Tracy’s turn to have the veil. For her, it’s just to get it fixed at a lace shop, for her friends it’s in the hope Tracy will find true love.
While working on a party for the museum where she works, Tracy now needs a replacement caterer. This leads her assistant to take her to a favorite Italian eatery. While there, they hire Nick (Victor Webster). A restaurateur working to open a new fusion restaurant and have his sister take over their traditional Italian space. As they work together, both discover they’re spending more than business hour time together.

If you’ve seen the first two films in a Hallmark trilogy, something unusual for the network, you’ll like ‘Legacy.’ This film has combinations of similarities to both the first and second film, so in that way, it doesn’t seem fresh or new. However, I think with exception to a couple of reveals that are a little more of a connection than is probable, the story is still good.
Surprisingly, I did enjoy Tracy’s story more than anticipated, and like prior installments, you see the girls together in a the traditional scene. Tracy, the cynic of the group finds what she wants and it’s a happy way to end everything. Plus, the whole rug carry through is cute. I don’t love some of the styling and “looks,” especially for one character. Sometimes I think it’s more the actress’s style rather than a stylist, just because they tend to have the same look in any film.
By the end, there’s even teasing about the possibility of the veil returning, and mostly, just a good time you’d enjoy. The cast is good, and I enjoy seeing Victor Webster in something again. While some of the actors aren’t favorites, the film boasts strong ties in friendship which is one of the best things about it. There are all kinds of cute moments between the leads and some really nice conversation between them. Supporting all this is a solid group of characters, and just the general vibe that is a Hallmark film.

Content: nothing to note outside the usual. Some kissing and disagreements; it’s the usual TV-G old school rating.
