Your wedding is, perhaps, one of the most important days of your entire life. There are so many great options that one has to choose from when selecting the location of their wedding, the theme and the attire-that the list seemingly never ends.
Today wedding veils are more of a style statement than a symbolic gesture. Thus, the ideal veil depends largely on the style of your wedding gown and the overall look you want to create.
Tulle is the classic veil material, although lace, silk, and satin are also options. Veils can be embellished with embroidery, pearls, or sparkly stones. Lengths run the gamut from short blushers to elaborate cathedral-length jaw droppers.
To showcase your hairstyle, choose a veil that fastens underneath your ‘do or one you’ll remove for the reception. Otherwise, you can opt for a veil that you’ll wear throughout the event. In this case, your hair will simply support the veil.
This striking long veil will fall effortlessly over your train. Your veil should not compete with your dress, so if you’re donning an elaborately embellished gown, keep your veil clean and simple. Also, any ornamentation on your veil should start below where your dress embellishments end.
Your veil – like your gown – should remain consistent with the formality of your wedding. In other words, lose the cathedral-length veil if yours is a simple beach side ceremony.
When it comes to color and embellishments, veils should complement wedding dresses – not mimic them. Don’t obsess about finding a perfect match.
The blusher is a short, single layer veil worn over your face during the ceremony, then flipped back over the head or removed before “kiss the bride.” You can wear a blusher solo or with a longer veil.
Think beyond white tulle or lace appliqués when choosing this classic big-day accessory.
