What Veil Should I Choose?

Every bride dreams of their picture perfect look on their wedding day. From the meticulously crafted hair to make up and nails. From the shoes, to the dress, to the finishing piece, the veil! Today, we take a look at three different but all equally stunning veils to help you answer the question of which veil you should choose for your big day. 

Cathedral Wedding Veil

If you are looking to make a jaw dropping entrance, the cathedral veil is the one for you. The cathedral veil typically ranges between 108”-120” and extends past the train of the bride’s dress. A dramatic effect surely to stun your guests as you walk down the aisle and provide a statement in your wedding photos.

Blusher Veil

The blusher veil is a shorter veil coming in at around 30”. This veil typically hits at just the top of the dress and has a vintage vibe to it. You may choose to have a blusher veil that falls over the bride’s face and allows for a special reveal when the groom can finally look his bride in the eyes right before they say ‘I do’.

Chapel Wedding Veil

The chapel wedding veil is approximately 90” and usually ends just beyond the bride’s dress. This veil is perfect for brides who choose to forgo a train. The chapel veil can help create the illusion of the train without any of the train upkeep once you hit the dance floor.
