HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT VEIL

When it comes to choosing the perfect veil to complete your wedding day look, there are a

few easy tips you can think about to find the right one for you.


COMPLIMENT YOUR LOOK

If you’ve chosen a detailed wedding gown which was designed to be the star of the show, then a subtle veil will be the perfect touch to complete your look. Alternatively, if you’ve chosen an elegant gown with minimal embellishments and details, then you have the option of choosing a veil to make more of a statement.


CHOOSE THE RIGHT FABRIC

The most common fabric option for veils is tulle, as it holds its shape a lot better than other fabrics and is a more affordable choice. However, if you would like to create a different look for your wedding day, then other fabrics to choose from are lace, silk and satin. The easiest way to choose the perfect fabric for your veil is by booking a consultation and experiencing the different textures and look of each fabric.


FIND A LENGTH YOU LOVE

It’s important to choose the right length veil to compliment your wedding dress, as you don’t want your veil to sit at a length that breaks the flow of your overall silhouette. A shorter veil will add more personality to your look, compared to a longer veil which will create a more formal aesthetic.


CONSIDER YOUR HAIRSTYLE

When choosing your veil, think about the hairstyles you’ve chosen for your wedding day. The style of veil you choose may alter the type of hairstyle you decide to create. Once you’ve purchased your veil, take it along when you have your trial hair appointment and make sure you’re happy with the overall look, so that there are no surprises on your wedding day.


CREATE A SEAMLESS LOOK

Aim to choose a veil which is the exact shade of your gown, or a shade lighter to avoid a colour blocking effect. The easiest way to do this is by bringing a swatch of fabric the same as your wedding dress when you go veil shopping.
