Top 5 Wedding Veil types for different wedding dress styles…
May 20, 2020
Deciding what wedding veil to wear with your dress is a major moment in creating your overall wedding day look isn't as simple as just choosing a long or short veil! Different types of veils and lengths can completely transform your wedding dress, so if you're wondering how to pick a veil, look no further, our guide will help you match a veil to your wedding dress…
Bird Cage Wedding Veil:
This short wedding veil usually made of a French net or lace can cover just the eyes, skim the nose or stop at the jawline. A rule of thumb often used is, the shorter the dress, the shorter the veil. If you are wearing a cocktail length gown or shorter, a birdcage veil, is perfect, think of something reminiscent of an Audrey Hepburn movie. The bird cage veil is also a great accompaniment to a vintage wedding dress. For brides whose something borrowed is also their wedding dress, why not go all out with a birdcage veil to match?
Shoulder-Length Wedding Veil:
Shoulder-length wedding veils are the subtle choice for brides who want a traditional-looking veil that doesn't compete with the details of their dress. The very on-trend fit-and-flare or mermaid gowns work well with shoulder-length wedding veils.
Elbow Wedding Veil:
If you want a more conservative look, an elbow-length veil is a very elegant way to cover up. An elbow veil falls gracefully over the shoulders.
Fingertip Wedding Veil:
If you are wearing a dress with a detailed back or even a backless dress then a fingertip veil is great, it falls beyond the bride's hips but does not detract from what is going on behind the veil itself.
Chapel Wedding Veil:
Are you going without a train? Then a chapel-length veil will create the illusion of a train, without adding any bulk, sweeping across the floor extending slightly beyond the bride's gown.
Cathedral Wedding Veil:
To create the most regal of entrances, a cathedral-length veil is a must! But the train itself can be as glitzy or as understated as you choose. If you have your heart set on a bit of sparkle, a classic cathedral veil with some scattered Swarovski crystals that will twinkle as you walk down the aisle or you can go for the sheer and chic look. The Cathedral length wedding veil also lends itself to the bohemian look or can work well for a destination beach wedding over a simple dress.
Don't be afraid to try something you wouldn't normally gravitate towards. You may be surprised! Keeping things matchy-matchy isn't always the best way to complement your gown, depending on the look you want to achieve, sometimes, mixing textures is a great way to add some originality, for instance, a lace-trim veil paired with a very clean gown.
