Are Wedding Veil movies connected?
All The Wedding Veil movies tell the love stories of three college friends after they buy the magical wedding veil in an antique shop. The movies are released back-to-back as trilogies, each covering one character’s story, starting with Avery, Emma, and then Tracy.
The original movie introduced the three friends and their first encounter with the wedding veil. It goes on to cover Avery as she falls in love with Peter. It was closely followed by the release of The Wedding Veil Unveiled and The Wedding Veil Legacy, covering Emma and Tracy’s stories, respectively, as they each meet their lovers after taking possession of the veil.
The second trilogy immediately follows the first three, starting with The Wedding Veil: Expectations, which picks up Avery and Peter’s marriage. The Wedding Veil: Inspiration covers Emma and Paolo as they struggle with a long-distance relationship after their whirlwind romance in Unveiled. The trilogy ends with Journey, which covers Tracy’s marriage as she and Nick go on a long overdue honeymoon in Greece after their marriage in Legacy.
What is the best order to watch all The Wedding Veil movies
It is best to watch The Wedding Veil movies by their release date for the best viewing experience. Watching according to the release date gives you a glimpse of the supporting characters’ love lives even before you watch the next movie, making it more fun.
Alternatively, watching each movie in the first trilogy and following it up with its corresponding counterpart in the second trilogy gives the best chronology for each character’s love story.
The first movies of both trilogies (The Wedding Veil and The Wedding Veil: Expectations) focus on Avery but still star Emma and Tracy in supporting roles. So viewers get to see Avery uncover the mystery of the veil and the painting in the museum while also getting tips on what is happening with Emma and Tracy.
Consequently, the second movie (Unveiled and Inspiration) tell Emma’s story from when she takes the veil on her trip to Italy, where she meets Paolo. The second movie reveals how she finds combining her career with marriage difficult, especially with Paolo returning to Italy.
Tracy, the Cynic, is proven wrong in the third movie of the first trilogy (Legacy) when she falls in love with Nick after taking the veil, although she doesn’t believe in the legend. The second movie (Journey) follows her struggles to balance her career and marriage, just like her friends, but she also becomes a parent and fulfills her life’s dream after finally going on her honeymoon in Greece.
