Wedding Veils Customised

Posted by Aoife O Gorman

Wedding veils can be traditional or modern, made with several different lengths including long or short.

Some girls love them while others prefer a bridal look without the veil. Some brides draw this imaginary image of being an older bride and how a wedding 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.

The main aspects you need to consider:


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.


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.


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 sequins, sparkle balls 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.


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 so the choice is endless.


Brides also have the versatility to choose how structured they want the tulle of their veil (standard 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.
