Stylish Wedding Veils
Your wedding veil completes your bridal accessory. It is important that you pick a veil that matches your style and personality to make a statement. However, in choosing your veil you need to consider how the veil works with your wedding gown, face shape, body shape, hairstyle and the venue wedding location.
Choosing an appropriate wedding veil can be tricky, below are some tips that will give you some guidelines on how to select the most exquisite finishing touch to your bridal look.
- Length: When it comes to wedding veils, there are 3 popular lengths:
- Elbow-length (30 inches long), Fingertip-length (36 inches long), Cathedral length (floor length).
- The elbow-length veil is generally reserved for wedding gowns without a train and often compliments those gowns with a full shirt.
- The fingertip-length veil is a versatile length choice and its length should reach the fingertips of the bride.
- Cathedral length veils are most commonly worn during formal weddings.
- An elbow-length veil falls to the wearer's elbow. This waist-length veil works well to cover the bride's back. It is a nice, less formal length for a ball gown-style dress for which the waist is very defined.
- A fingertip-length veil falls to the end of the bride's middle finger. This is the second longest length of veil. It works well with A-line style dresses because it continues the line of the dress
- Blushers: The blusher is a simple veil used to cover the face before the ceremony, then removed or flipped back before the big kiss.
- Mantilla veils are usually created in lace or embellished with lace trim. Cut in a circular or square shape, they're usually attached to a headband, comb or clips, and fall flat against the face. They are usually paired with a simple gown so the veil takes center stage.
- Shorter or mid-length veils are an ideal choice for showing off your back or the back of your wedding gown:
- For a more glamorous, dramatic look the full length veil has become very popular at outdoor weddings, where it can flow and ribbon in the air.
- For a simple gown, an embellished veil will help create a more detailed and interesting overall look.
- Highly detailed gowns look stunning offset by a plain, straight veil.
