Stylish wedding veils to compliment the bride and her bridal style short or long with the option of fancy edges and in colors of ivory or white.
The brides wedding veil should complement the her face and body type.
Wedding veils come in different lengths. The normal standard lengths and names they are normally called as are as follows:
Short Flyaway – 15 inches long
Shoulder length – 20 inches long
Elbow length -25 inches long
Waist length- 30 inches long
Fingertip length -36 inches long
Knee length – 45 inches long
Floor length – 72 inches long
Chapel lengths – 90 or 108 inches long
Cathedral lengths - 120 or 144 inches long
After the bride selects her wedding gown she usually decides on how she will wear her hair and what hair accessories and/or bridal veil will compliment or enhance her gown or wedding dress.
If the bride is wearing a formal ballroom gown and getting married in a large church she may want to consider wearing her long hair in an up-do and she plans on wearing a wedding veil in cathedral length, 120 inches, this type of hairstyle will help support the weight and length of the long veil.
It is important for the bride to be mindful of the location of the ceremony. A short flyaway elbow, shoulder length veil or a birdcage face veil would be ideal choices for a outdoor, beach side or casual wedding but a long formal beautiful cathedral length veil choice could be disastrous at an outdoor wedding on a windy day or beach ocean wedding with sand.
A wedding veil should complement the brides face and body type. A round face and average height bride may look best in a shoulder length flyway or waist length bridal veil where as the tall and oval shape faced bride may look best in a fingertip length or longer veil.
Wedding veils are available with a single tier, two tiers or three tiers. When ordering two or three tier veils a bride can usually use the top layer of the veil as a blusher to pull over her face at the ceremony. Usually the top layer should be no longer than 30 inches in length.
Wedding veils are available with lace trim, simulated pearls, rhinestones, seed beads, crystal and satin ribbon edging. A bride with a simple wedding gown may want to wear a bridal veil with a little dazzle to it.
Bridal veils typically come in three widths: 54 inch wide veils usually compliment a wedding gown or dress with decorative straps. The 72 inch wide bridal veil falls around your arms and works well with a spaghetti strap gown. A 108 wide veil is very full at the top and is a ideal choice for a bride wearing a strapless wedding gown.
When selecting a veil keep in mind the detailing on your wedding dress. A royal formal wedding gown may also call for a fancy long bridal veil with all the options of dazzle added on it.
