Get to Know Your Wedding Veils

Wedding Veils

The wedding fashion is an exciting part of wedding planning. Not every style calls for a veil, but when it does, the wedding veil is a significant part of the bride's ensemble. Choosing the right veil to match the dress and the tone of the event can be a small challenge. We are sharing tips to help you make the important decisions about wedding veils.

A Little History

Wedding veils are a symbolic element with a little history that takes us back to Rome during a time when brides veiled their face to hide from evil. Depending on religion and culture, wedding veils are everything from a symbol of class to hiding from the groom before marriage. Regardless of the history claimed or the reasons for wearing them, wedding veils have made the journey to Western wedding traditions to create a dramatic, elegant and fun style.

Cathedral Wedding Veils

Nothing could be more dramatic than a sheer cathedral veil that has no other purpose but to frame the beauty of the bride beneath. Sheer wedding veils match every silhouette and fabric. While there are not many rules when it comes to your headpieces, cathedral wedding veils are recommended for elegant and formal weddings. This is not to say that you cannot have the flowing cathedral veil blowing in the wind during your beach wedding.

Wedding Veils

Blusher Wedding Veils

The blusher is the portion of wedding veils that conceal the bride’s face until lifted for the kiss or when given away. The idea behind the blusher is probably closely linked to the tradition of hiding the bride until marriage.

Lace Wedding Veils

Lace is always romantic, stylish and timeless. Lace wedding veils can match any dress, and remain elegant at every length.

Wedding Veils

Juliet Cap Wedding Veils

Combine a cloche-style cap with a tulle veil to create the early twentieth century wedding veils from somewhere between 1910 and the 1940’s. Imagine "Romeo and Juliet" with this romantic look that is absolutely timeless.

Halo Wedding Veils

Halo wedding veils are the circle cut veils that crown the head. This style is made with a wreath-shaped wire that attaches to the veil. The vintage look is simple with a Bohemian flair.
