The Wedding Veil

TGIF fashion lovers! This week I thought I would do a deep dive in the complex world of wedding veils. Once you've found that perfect dress, it can be hard to know exactly what type of veil suites your style.

1. Be sure to think about which hairstyle will go well with your dress. Once your hairstyle is selected,  choose a veil that compliments your hair without covering it up.

2. Don't forget about the venue! Be sure your veil compliments the ceremony's atmosphere. If your ceremony will be held in a church, consider a chapel/cathedral veil. Having the ceremony outside? Stick with a veil that hits you at the elbow or higher, so your veil doesn’t distract your guest during the ceremony.

3. What about the Groom? A mistake I may even be guilty of sometimes (shhh!) is not thinking about the grooms outfit and style. Be sure to keep in mind the grooms formal attire (tux) or more casual attire (suit). Your veil should complement his outfit as well!

Next week, I'll be talking tips and tricks to make sure your gown is picture perfect on your big day!

For now, check out below for the ultimate bridal veil guide!
