A wedding veil is a simple accessory. However, it has the power to completely transform an entire look. It’s simply pure magic!

Let’s take a peek at our top three tips to keep in mind when choosing your wedding veil:

Tip 1 | Consider your Wedding Dress.

It’s best to find a dress first and then choose a wedding veil that enhances your gown.

For example, if you have a lace or beaded dress, look for a veil that compliments those elements.

  • Remember, a wedding veil should never take center stage or draw attention away from you and your dress.
  • Try to choose a wedding veil in a similar shade to your gown, but do not get too hung up on this detail. Your gown and will not be from the same designer, so the colors will not match perfectly.
  • Keep in mind as long as the wedding veil is in similar shade it will blend in with your gown just fine. The perfect shade will be out Light Ivory to complement your wedding gown.

Tip 2 | Consider your Venue.

If your ceremony is taking place in a large, elaborate church, you may want to consider a dramatic, long wedding veil. Alternatively, if you’re getting married outdoors during a windy season, it’s best to opt for a veil that’s shorter in length. This will prevent the veil from blowing too much or even flying away.

Tip 3 | Keep your Hairstyle in Mind.

Most veils work well with down hairstyles. But if you’re planning on a more intricate hairstyle, choose a thin or sheer veil that won’t completely conceal your hair. Whether you’re doing your own hair or getting it done by a professional, it’s a good idea to practice placing and fastening your veil before the big day.
