A Veil for Every Season

The veil is one of the most important accessories to a wedding gown, however, most brides aren't aware of all the splendid choices they have. Did you know that there are at least six lengths to choice from and over ten different styles?! So try to find something that fits your personality and gown without sticking to the traditional choices. Have fun with it!

Cathedral: Think Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music.  A long vein to match that long train you’ve been dreaming about. They really complete each other will stun your guests. It’s very formal, but very striking; just make sure you have some flower girls on hand to keep it flowing beautifully!

Chapel: Floor-length, with a traditional touch. These veils work great inside and out and you won’t have to worry about anyone stepping on you!

Waltz: Falls somewhere between the knees and ankles. If you are looking for a veil you can wear all night along, this is the veil for you. It’s perfect for beach weddings and for those Bride’s who like to boogie!

Fingertip: Lines up with the Bride’s fingertips for an asymmetrical silhouette. This is very flattering on a more classical or even vintage style gown and will frame you well.

Elbow: A less formal look that works with any dress that hits below the knee. Elbow says “I’m fun and ready to enjoy myself tonight!” This is a good fit for A line gowns or more slimming styles.

Shoulder: Hits right below the shoulder blades and fits perfectly for strapless or tea-length.

Mantilla: A laced-edge veil that is very elegant and feminine. These veils are gorgeous and work wonders in an up do!

Bubble: Bubbles create a rounded pouf around the bride’s head, perfect for a whimsical look. 

Flyaway:  For the playful and trendy Bride, flyaway veils have several layers of different lengths and work well with less formal gowns. Fit and Flares and cocktail style wedding gowns pop with a flyaway.

Blusher: For those who want no veil, this style is very trendy, yet classic. These can be any length or shape and can be personalized to any one style. Whether you love a double comb, across your whole face, or just above the eyes, it will be one of a kind no matter how you wear it.
