The origin of the bridal veil actually dates back to Medieval times when it was worn to protect the bride from evil spirits. If they couldn’t see her—she couldn’t be cursed. It was also worn as a symbol of purity and chastity.

Strike A Balance

As a general rule of thumb, the more embellished your dress, the more simple your bridal veil should be. The veil should merely frame your face, not take away from the full bridal look. If your gown is clean, then opt for a veil with a little more detail–maybe one with beading!

Match Your Fabric & Color

Since we love to customize veils for our brides, matching is easy! Your bridal veil should coordinate with your dress, so let us help. If you’re wearing a blush gown, try a blush veil, and depending on if your dress is ivory or white, match it accordingly. An ivory dress should have an ivory veil. Just communicate with your salon and we’ll do the rest!

Fit With A Hairstyle

Think about how you want to wear your hair on your wedding day when selecting your bridal veil. It can make a difference for the placement and where the veil will fall.

Opt for this blushing beauty in a “vintage rose” lace or keep it classic with the ivory version. Either way, this elegant lace top wedding dress is traditional with a twist and can be paired with our ethereal organza skirt as a removable extra or as the official bridal gown silhouette. You’ll love the pop of color and “it girl” vibe in this two-tone wedding dress. Brigitte Wedding Dress, Marilyn Collection by Kelly Faetanini

Think About The Back View

Consider the length and sheerness of your veil if you’ve got an amazing back on your wedding dress. You don’t want to cover that up! While a bridal veil can add drama to the look, keep those back shots in mind with a simply sheer veil.

This slim crepe and embroidery gown is as elegant as she is classic—with a twist. The nude lining on the bodice of this bateau wedding dress lends a sexy vibe, while keeping a modest sensibility with a high bateau neckline and cap sleeves. Our heavy crepe fabric offers a slimming design that is smooth and breathable. Think: Old Hollywood glamour for the modern bride. Turn to the back side of this embroidered bodice wedding dress and you’ll find a low V detail that hints at your gorgeous curves and helps create a long line of covered buttons that train to the bottom hem.Opt for a full tulle skirt as your wedding dress silhouette or purchase separately for an overskirt effect that can be removed after the ceremony.
