You’ve found the dress, now it’s time to shop for wedding accessories. And nothing completes your bridal look like a beautiful wedding veil. Here, a few helpful wedding planning suggestions to take with you as you shop for the finishing touch to your bridal attire—the wedding veil.
Determine the length:
Wedding veils come in a variety of lengths. When selecting your veil, opt for ones that compliment the style of your wedding dress.
Keeping it together:
If you plan to sport a wedding day updo, you can attach your veil to a jeweled comb or barrette as a back piece to hold it securely in place.
Use your wedding dress for inspiration when picking out netting for your veil.
To glam up the look of your headpiece, try veils with dazzling embellishments such as rhinestones, pearls, or consider a veil made of dotted tulle for a romantic look.
When testing wedding-day hairstyle, be sure to take your veil and other hair wedding accessories with you to see what look works best with your veil.
Handing down heirlooms:
If you’re considering donning a veil worn by another family member, have it cleaned or altered prior to the wedding date. You can even have a seamstress redesign an antique veil, to give it a new, more modern flair.
Interested in something a little more unique? The mantilla--a formal hairpiece derived from Latin culture--The veil lays flat on the head and cascades around the shoulder, shaped around the face.
Bringing back birdcage:
The birdcage veil is a hot trend right now and a nod to the days of old Hollywood glamour. This veil is perfect for the bride who wants to make a fashionable entrance on her wedding day.
Big and bountiful:
Look to veils with multiple layers of tulle for a fairytale feel.
These are just a few ideas to keep in mind as you search for your wedding veil. Remember to select ones that look great on and fit well with your overall wedding accessories.
