How to choose the right veil to fit your style
One of the most divisive questions when it comes to bridal attire – veil or no veil? There are those who are vehemently opposed to donning a sheath of satin on their heads, worried about the resemblance to Charlene Mitchell circa 1987, and those that took one look at Kate Middleton’s full length and flowing veil and immediately started pining for one of their own.
A lot of people overlook the diversity of the veil; forget giant, poofing, sequinned, meringues (unless that’s your thing, in which case embrace the 80’s!) and take a wider look at what the stylish world of veils really has to offer.
Choosing Your Length
Just a hint – The birdcage veil is a timeless style that’s ideal if a swooping train isn’t really your thing. They range from ending just below the eyes to covering most of your face, and are a perfect hassle-free option on your big day.
Waltz length – Evoke the Hollywood glamour of having a full length veil without risking tripping up on your way down the aisle. The waltz length (or ballet length, any kind of dance really) falls between your knees and your ankles so dancing will be a breeze – just try not to swish it too close to any candles.
