Choosing Your Wedding Veil

Wedding Veil

One of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding is shopping for the wedding fashion. Not every bride wears a wedding veil to complete her look, but when chosen, it is a significant part of the bride's wedding attire. Choosing the right veil to match the dress and the tone of the event is an important decision. These tips should help you choose your wedding veil.

Wedding Veil Tradition

The wedding veil takes us back to Rome during a time when brides veiled their face to hide from evil. Depending on religion and culture, wedding veils are everything from a symbol of class to hiding from the groom before marriage. Regardless of the history claimed or the reasons for wearing them, veils have made the journey to Western wedding traditions to create a dramatic, elegant and fun style.

Cathedral Wedding Veil

Nothing could be more dramatic than a sheer cathedral wedding veil that has no other purpose but to frame the beauty of the bride beneath it. Sheer wedding veils match every silhouette and fabric. This veil is recommended for formal weddings, but would also look stunning blowing in the wind on the rustic countryside or on the beach.

Wedding Veil

Blusher Wedding Veil

The blusher is the portion of wedding veils that is designed to conceal the bride’s face until it is lifted for the kiss or when given away. The idea behind the blusher is probably closely linked to the tradition of hiding the bride until marriage. Nonetheless, it is a classic wedding veil.

A Little Lace

Lace is always romantic, stylish and timeless. A lace wedding veil can match any dress, and remain elegant at every length.

Juliet Cap

Combine a cloche style cap with a tulle veil to create the early twentieth century wedding veil from somewhere between 1910 and the 1940’s. Imagine "Romeo and Juliet" with this romantic look that is absolutely timeless.

Halo Veil

The halo veil is a circle cut veil that crowns the head. This style is made with a wreath-shaped wire that attaches to the veil. The vintage look is simple with a Bohemian flair, and is perfect for a rustic themed wedding.
