A helpful guide to discover beautiful veils!
A mantilla veil is an oval-shaped Spanish-style veil that has a beautiful lace border in all different patterns. Traditionally, it comes in a fingertip-length or cathedral-length veil with a single-tier framing the bride. This romantic style works best for brides who want to achieve a timeless look and are wearing their hair down or low.
A fingertip-length veil is a very popular choice that's light and easy to manage, allowing you to wear it comfortably throughout your reception and first dance without the worry of tripping over it. This stunning veil is the ideal length and shape to suit most dress designs and body shapes – perfect for a flirty and playful bridal.
The sophisticated yet playful birdcage veil is lightweight and creates a simple vintage look. It's normally nine to ten inches long and has large diamond-shaped holes throughout so the brides can see clearly. This style first became popular back in the 40's and goes extremely well with lace gowns and full-skirted tea-length wedding dresses.
A classic bridal veil is U-shaped that's gathered onto a comb and can have a blusher which is a short single layer that's placed over the bride's face. This is typically 30-inches long and falls just above the bouquet but can be adjusted to become longer or shorter. Once vows have been exchsnged it's lifted over the face for the 'you may kiss the bride' moment!
The mother of all veils is the cathedral-length which is the most formal and longest type – normally around 120 to 144-inches long and goes well past the train on the dress. We have seen them being used all over the world and even featured in royal weddings, in 1984 when the late Princess Diana wore a 7.62 metre veil! If you're looking to make a statement on your big-day then this one might be for you, but make sure you take into consideration the wedding venue because this long veil might not be practical. If this is the case then a chapel-length veil would be a better option, offering a sprinkle of drama that goes all the way to the floor and spreads out a few inches past the dress.
