How to Choose a Wedding Veil

How to Choose a Wedding Veil

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.

 

Wedding Veil

Shoulder length – Very modern, very rock and roll. Shoulder length veils are young and daring, and show the world your wedding day is all about fun. Have them subtly decorated or layered for a fashion forward flyaway look.

 

Wedding Veil

Elbow length – Romantic and sophisticated without the hassle that comes with a full length train. Elbow length veils end where your skirt begins, elongating your figure and flattering your overall look.

 

Wedding Veil

Finger-tip length – The most flattering length of all and the most popular choice for brides-to-be. Finger-tip length veils may not be the most unique choice but that doesn’t mean they can’t be showstoppers.

 

Wedding Veil

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.

 

Wedding Veil

Chapel length – If your wedding is a traditional, formal affair then this is the length for you. A real showstopper which reaches all the way to the ground that is sure to make you feel like the princess you know you are.

 

Wedding Veil

Cathedral length – If chapel length makes you feel like a princess then Cathedral length is for the queens – a full blown full length veil complete with a train that tells your guests they’re at the Rolls Royce of weddings, and you’re royalty.
