Wedding fashion is an exciting detail to plan. The wedding veil or headpiece completes the look. 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 theme does not need to be a challenge. We are sharing tips to help you make all the decisions about wedding veils.
Wearing the Tradition
Wedding veils are a symbolic element that date back to ancient Rome. Depending on religion and culture, wedding veils are everything from a symbol of class to hiding from the groom before marriage. Regardless of 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.
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.
Juliet Cap 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.
The Wedding Venue
Before you make any decisions about your wedding fashion, including the wedding veils, you should book your wedding venue. The venue will make many decisions about the style and tone of your wedding day, which will affect all of your wedding fashion.
