Wedding veils are one of the most underappreciated wedding accessories, but much of that comes from the lack of understanding about the differences in veils. It can be tough to know what style of wedding veil you want, and when you figure out the style it can be tough to find out how to purchase it too!
Here’s everything you need to know about your wedding veil:
You can choose between single tier, two tier, and three tier veils. Each tier will have a slightly different length so you can get the best of each world. If you want your veil to stand out, having multiple tiers (or layers) will help you achieve that.
Veil lengths make the biggest difference in appearance when considering a veil. It’s definitely the most important part of choosing your veil as it can change your entire appearance. Depending on the length of the veil, you may even find a slimming effect. The shoulder length veil (obviously) goes to shoulder length, elbow to elbow length, wrist to wrist length and fingertip to fingertip length. The only lengths that don’t conform to the actual length are intermission, chapel and cathedral length veils.
There are many different types of edges for veils, but they boil down to 6 key styles:
Obviously there are different variations on these styles, but in general you’ll be able to find one based on these six styles.
