Since the choice of wedding veils is abundant, it’s often daunting to choose the right one. It is important to decide what length you wish to go for and veils can vary from shoulder length to cathedral veils, which can be up to 10 feet long. Cathedral veils are popular for a traditional look, whereas mid length veils are most suited to shorter dresses adding to a modern feel. For instance dresses with heavy detail on the back, would benefit from a shorter veil so that the detail of the dress is not hidden.
There are a variety of trims and borders that can be added to the edging and main body of your veil ranging from ribbon to pearls, but remember to match the work on the veil to the work on your dress. If your dress is full of detail, it is a good idea to go for a simple veil not to distract away from the lavishness of the gown, vice versa.
Birdcage veils are making a comeback into bridal fashion and are great for those brides wanting a vintage look. They often fall in front of the face slightly covering one eye, with a wide selection of net options. This look is very versatile as crystal and flower decoration can be added to accustom for your preferences.
Headpieces are commonly used to hold the veil in place but many women choose to opt for a headpiece to replace a veil altogether. Whether you choose a headpiece alongside your veil or not, there is a great range of styles available. Tiaras are arguably the most popular choice, especially after the Royal Wedding and although princess tiaras are the most traditional style, there are also many others to choose from. Again, it is important that the style you select compliments your dress as well as the hairstyle for your day.
