Nothing says glamorous and timeless like a bride wearing a veil with her wedding dress. With so many decisions to make about dresses, jewelry and shows, the veil is typically the finishing touch and can be the most defining aspect of your whole bridal appearance. After deciding you want to wear a veil on your big day, the next step is considering how it will work with your dress, face shape, hairstyle and wedding location. In today’s post, we will dive into all the different types of veils you can choose from. Let’s begin!
Worn mostly by vintage and retro brides, the birdcage veil is the perfect accessory. Paired with a bold lip and stunning accessories, the birdcage veil will definitely accentuate your wedding day hair and makeup. There is no standard shape or size to a caged veil so be sure to try on a few with your wedding dress to make sure that you find one that you love.
If you love the mystery of shielding your face then the blusher veil is for you. It adds volume to the hairstyle of your choice and is somehow considered both a classic and modern type of veil at the same time.
If you have a craving for dramatic on your big day, or just like the idea of bohemian edge to your bridal look, then the Juliet cap veil is definitely for you. One of the more historically classic options, this type of veil is worn mostly with your hair down.
SHOULDER LENGTH VEIL
This veil is fun and playful. If you're committed to having a traditional looking veil but don't want it getting in the way of your sweet dance moves then a shoulder length veil is perfect.
ELBOW LENGTH VEIL
If you're looking to cover your shoulders or frame your face, then the elbow length veil is the best choice. It's also great for enhancing details around your waist or complementing a hairstyle.
This is the perfect length veil for a bride who wants all the perks of long veil without too much restriction of movement! The sophisticated feel will give you the freedom to wear it with any hairstyle while also showing off any embellishments below the waistline of your wedding gown.
Also known as ballet veils, waltz length veils will fall somewhere in between your fingertips and the floor.
Typically worn at formal weddings, the cathedral veil is the longest and usually most detailed. The longer the veil, the harder it is to move in - so you might want to take it off or switch to a shorter option for the reception.
