Back to Basics: Veils

No accessory defines you as the bride more than the wedding veil. Who knew there were so many choices!



Blusher: short, single layer worn over the face.

Chapel: formal veil that extends to the floor two-and-a-half yards from the headpiece.

Cathedral: the most formal style of veil (think, Princess Diana), this style falls three-and-a-half yards from the headpiece


Double Tier: two layers, usually of different lengths.

Elbow: extends 25 inches in length to the bride's elbows.

Finger Tip: this style extends to the fingertips…obviously.

Flyaway: multi-layered veil that just brushes the shoulders.

Waltz/Ballet: veil length that falls somewhere between the knee and the ankle.

Fabrics: most veils are made from tulle, but other options include chiffon, silk gauze or other types of netting fabrics.

You know what I love bout veils? That it's a one time only. There is just something so grand about having a special piece that you'll only wear once and have such an impact on your appearance. I am so glad that more brides are wearing them again.

I agree! I also love that it balances out thier look w/ the big white dress on the bottom. I've had a couple brides wear the birdcage veils and they looked so fabulous. Even though the veil was so small, it made big impact on thier overall look. Love it!
