You finally found your wedding day look! Now you’re looking for the perfect veil to make you the perfect bride you’ve always dreamed of being. Choosing your wedding look is one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning, and now you’re finally ready to add the final piece to the puzzle. No matter what kind of bride you are, we have figured out the best wedding veils for you. Let’s start shopping!
The Vintage Bride
There’s something charming about vintage weddings. If you plan on having a wedding with an Old Hollywood theme, or with a 20s twist, here are some veils to consider.
The birdcage veil is a great place to start when looking for vintage-inspired veils. It is made in a net material that covers half of the bride’s face. It’s a great option for a bride looking for zero fuss on their wedding day, but still, make a statement with their veil.
Next is the blusher. This is sort of a catch-all phrase, but it is typically a veil that covers the face completely. It’s a little more vintage in that modern brides have begun to ditch the blusher altogether. But, if you love the idea of your face being revealed once you’re at the altar, the blusher is a great place to start.
A double-tier veil can actually be applied to any veil style. However, it’s important to note the effect it gives. Depending on the material and how the draping is, you can create a vintage look with a double-tier veil. For instance, having two layers of volumized mesh material will create a true vintage-inspired veil.
Juliet Cap Veil
‘Tis the 20s! But rewind a hundred years. If you found yourself enthralled with the world of The Great Gatsby when it came out years ago, it’s likely that you’re also finding ways to incorporate its glamour into your wedding. Let us introduce you to the Juliet Cap Veil! This type of veil creates a “cap” feel by bunching up just above the ear to create a flat lay on the head. Then it extends out past the bride’s head to create a grand feel. The Juliet cap veil is a super fun and unique take on veils!
The Modern Bride
If you’re the type of bride looking for a veil that is not only modern but timeless, look no further! You can personalize the following veils in any way that fits your theme. Pearls will add that touch of elegance. Lace on the other end will add a layer of romanticism to your veils. Here are some veils to add to your inspiration board.
Elbow + Fingertip Veils
One of the easiest ways to keep it timeless is by going for veils that fall in the middle of options. This is where the Elbow Veils and Fingertip Veils come into play. Just as they’re names hint at, they fall at the elbows or fingertips. These are also great options if you’re the bride who wants the skirt or pantsuit to still take center stage.
The flyaway veil is a great choice for the bride who really doesn’t want the veil to play a big role in their final wedding look. It’s one single layer of material and tends to be a simple take on the veil.
Last but not least, the longest veil option for the timeless bride. The Waltz Veil aka Ballet Veil usually falls below the knee and above the ankle. If you know you’re not looking for a dramatic veil but can’t quite commit to anything short, this is probably the best bet for you. It gives just a little bit of everything.
The Regal Bride
Alright, if you read through all of the previous veil options and were not impressed, you probably fall under the regal bride category. You are looking for drama in your look, head turns, ooooohs, and ahhs. Here are the perfect veils for you!
We’ll start you off with the granddaddy of all wedding veils! This is the moment, as it stretches for feets, miles (okay maybe not miles) but the limit does not exist! The cathedral veil works perfectly for more upscale weddings.
If you know you’re wanting a veil that will go past the bottom of your dress, but having a veil that stretches for many feet is too much, the Chapel Veil is the perfect veil for you! It still gives the grand effect without the fear of people tripping on it as much.
This Spanish-style veil has royalty written all over it. Its ties to the Catholic church. The stunning interiors add to the grand scale of the veil. The overall shape of this veil is circular and falls beautifully on any bride. The mantilla veil usually has lace trim all around the perimeter.
