The origin of the wedding 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 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 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 veil. It can make a difference for the placement and where the veil will fall.

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 veil can add drama to the look, keep those back shots in mind with a simply sheer veil.
