Veils: Customised to suit your Dress & Style

Posted by Aoife O Gorman

Veils are very traditional and some girls love them while others keep away. Some brides draw this imaginary line of being an older bride and how a veil won’t suit them. This is not the case.

Whether you love them or not there are many options when it comes to the blushing bride choosing the correct veil.

Length

Firstly  you can decide on the length of the veil. Short or long?

Short can come at a one off length just below the shoulders, waist length or hip length. Long we advise to match the train of the dress or else go longer with a cathedral length veil. You don’t want the veil cutting off the dress.

Edging

There are so many different edgings to choose from: satin, sparkle, lace, raw cut, picot edge or pearls.

The list is endless and you may choose your edging based on what suits your dress and the overall look you want with your gown.

Tiers

All veils can come as a single tier, two tier or three tier. It depends on the look and affect you want.

Added Extras

You can add a scatter of sparkle or pearls to a veil.

Also the designers allow you to build along the comb if that is also something you would like. The options include satin ribbon, clear elastic, sparkle or pearls.

Colour

While most brides of today opt for an ivory gown, all veils can be sourced in a variety of colours including ivory, white, pearl grey, a few shades of pink and a beige rum colour.

Structure

Brides also have the versatility to choose the tulle they want their veil made of (structured vs soft).

Again there are more options with certain colours than others but ask in store and we can show you the different options.

I tell all my brides that you dress your hair the way you would for the evening so when you remove the veil throughout your wedding day your hair is immaculate so if you also want a comb or head piece for the evening look then consider doing your hair with this piece in place from the start.
