Which veil will you choose?
I am so excited to share this post with you today!
One of my favorite moments with a Bride right before she heads down the aisle is when she puts on the final touches to her ensemble, chief among them her veil!
A bride becomes bridal when that veil graces her beautiful hair and it gives us chills every time.
With so many options, how do you choose a veil?
During your fittings and dress appointments, try all the options you can!
Walk around in different kinds. Try to get a feel for the most comfortable, and the most bridal, that fits YOU! Think of it as your final touch to becoming a bride and the veil takes on a whole new special meaning.
How do you know what length to chose?
Besides feeling comfortable, know that you can make a statement with your veil!
A bandeau, birdcage, and blushers as shorter veils tend to offer a fun personality spin to your ensemble. Not to mention, short veils can bring in a little informal and retro style!
Longer veils, like a ballet, chapel, and cathedral style offer more of a traditional, formal touch to your dress. Longer veils are my personal favorite for the ultimate romantic element to your ensemble – not to mention, are universally flattering!
What about fabric?
You can add an element of flair with your veil by choosing a special fabric to complement your dress. Tulle is always a classic choice! Choose tulle a light, airy, cost-effective choice and you can never go wrong. For a different, straighter draped veil, there is always silk or satin. But, don’t forget to consider a lace veil or even lace touches to add a little romance or drama!
With so many options, don’t worry if you can’t find the perfect veil!
Custom veils are always an option and even recommended so you have the perfect length to complement your amazing dress.
If all else fails, think about all of the amazing women in your life who have gone before you in their own marriage journey! Consider “something borrowed” when choosing your veil – you can always give your Mom’s veil a little updating taking it to a trusted tailor and adding a touch of lace or color.
