Veil Style Guide
Having trouble choosing your wedding veil? Here are all the essential styles you need to know about.
Once you’ve found your perfect wedding dress it’s time to move onto bridal accessories. But wait! Before you start scouring the stores for shoes, blinged out belts or a killer clutch, you should tackle your wedding veil. This is your most important accessory and will help dictate the direction of your wedding hairstyle and jewellery, so getting it done at the get-go is a must.Elite
Elite Mid-length Veils
Mid-length veils, including elbow-length, fingertip, and waltz veils, outline the upper body for a flattering silhouette. This option provides a traditional look but also works with tea-length dresses and alternative bridal styles.
Spanish Mantilla Veils
The circular, Spanish-style mantilla veil features a thicker lace trim along its edge. Softly drape the veil over your head (a hidden comb or hairpin holds it in place), and the embellished border will frame your face for the prettiest effect.
Dramatic Cathedral Veils
These veil lengths deliver an unforgettable statement that's classic and a touch regal. With a lot of fabric extending from the comb, your veil will trail gracefully beyond your dress' train as you move.
Chic Shiny Veils
The trim or beading on your veil doesn't have to mimic your dress's details perfectly, but it's lovely when they complement each other: metallic embroidery, crystal, pearl, or metallic flaked, for example.
Keep your dress' key features in mind when you're selecting your veil. Low-back style? An unembellished veil lets that detail show through. Simple dress? A crystal-trimmed veil brings a touch of opulence.
Traditional Blusher Veils
If you're dreaming of a big reveal during the ceremony, you'll want a blusher veil to conceal your face for your entrance and walk down the aisle. Pair this short veil with a longer veil worn down the back.
