How to find the perfect veil0 Comments
A veil is a classic piece of wedding couture, adding a touch of elegance to your wedding day ensemble. Whether your look is classic and traditional or sleek and modern, a veil will finish off your bridal look perfectly. It also looks amazing in photos, so keep that in mind when choosing your veil!
Veil length is important to consider when looking for the perfect veil. Veils come in a range of lengths, and it’s important to choose a length that will flatter your dress and body shape! The best veil you can buy is a long one, it is flattering on every bride, and provides a beautiful train and an amazing silhouette. They also photograph incredibly well, capturing sunlight, framing your dress and trailing elegantly behind you. Consider a Cathedral length veil, the longest option available, for a timeless, elegant look.
When it comes to veils, the thinner and more translucent the better! Having a sheer veil is the key to a flattering silhouette, especially from behind. A thicker veil can exaggerate your size and block the view of your gorgeous dress. A thin, light veil is more comfortable, lets your dress show through drapes more elegantly and looks amazing when tossed in the air for photos!
A simple dress calls for a veil with some embellishment like an extra layer or a pretty lace trim. On the other hand, if your dress is covered with lace, pearls and sparkles, a simple long, sheer veil will complement it without distracting from the main event.
How you’ll keep your veil secured is important to consider when choosing your veil. Veil combs can be plastic or metal, but neither is necessarily better. Different hairdressers may have different preferences, but a good hairdresser will be able to work with both to incorporate your veil into your hairstyle. A long veil cascading from an elegant hairstyle decorated with stunning hair piece is a gorgeous look! No matter which hairstyle you choose, or how you incorporate your veil into the style, make sure the veil is firmly attached to your head. Avoid a veil mishap by using plenty of bobby pins and testing to make sure everything will stay in place!
While looking for your ideal veil, check out inspo photos and think about your own wedding photos. But remember that long, sheer veils are flattering to every dress and body shape. No matter what dress and hairstyle you choose for your special day, an elegant veil will make your bridal look unforgettable!
