June 10, 2017 Tips for Choosing Vour Veil

Checking off the finding dress feels great. Now you get to focus on finding accessories and building your look. Veils are a perfect addition to bring a little extra tradition into your ceremony or to fully embrace your true inner bride. Our stylists are here to help you find a design that will best complement your overall aesthetic and achieve your desired walk down the aisle look ~


Length is an important factor in the overall effect a veil will have on your complete look. Shorter birdcage and fingertip length veils tend to be more delicate and show off personality while cathedral length veils give an classic, regal feel. This is a good time to consider the length of your dress and where the veil will fall.


The trim on a veil can definitely add or subtract to your wedding day look. If your dress has several design elements or patterns, try something on the more minimal side, like our Handkerchief or Classic veils. On the flip side, a minimal dress pairs perfectly with big or bold lace, like the Wilshire veil. And sometimes designers make choosing very easy, by simply making a veil with trim to match the lace on their gowns.


Picking the right colour veil can be tough, especially when you're trying to match tones of wedding dress white. Be open to colours that are less matchy-matchy and more complimentary. Meaning you could (and should!) throw some colour in the mix. Nothing too wild, but anything in the soft neutral zone will make for a memorable bridal look.


Before veil shopping do a little pinning for some wedding hair inspo. You want to chose a veil compatible with how you’ll be wearing your hair. A lightweight veil can be super versatile in how you wear it whereas a heavier veil may need an updo to hold it in place. Once you’ve picked the veil, make sure to bring it to your hair trial.
