Wedding season is upon us.  Even if you aren’t currently in the process of planning your own wedding or helping your best friend plan hers, it’s always good to know the difference between the  various veil types and understand which styles work best with different dress designs.

A chapel veil measures nearly 90 inches in length.  It is a more traditional style which pairs well with gowns that have trains.  Best for a more formal ceremony.  Looks amazing when it extends slightly beyond the hem of a gown.

A fingertip veil is one that ends at your fingertips.  So length may vary from bride to bride.  The fingertip veil is one of the most versatile veil designs and looks gorgeous with detailed edging such as pearls or tiny rhinestones and equally as gorgeous left unfinished.  If you aren’t sure which veil style to go with, try the fingertip veil.

A sort of throwback to vintage style, the blusher veil is one of the more creative and personality-filled veils.  It can be worn on the side of the head and flipped over the face or drape back over your hair.  Try both ways, over the face for a romantic ceremony and away from your visage while you party the night away.  Blusher veils can go well with shorter styles and look absolutely stunning on the brunette bride.  Depending upon the look of your dress and the material of the blusher veil, go with two fabrics that complement one another, avoid a blusher that completely draws attention away from your gown.

The birdcage veil, another vintage-inspired style, is made with wider gauged netting falling right near your face.  The birdcage veil ends right above the nose.  Add some creativity to your ensemble by adding a feather, small hat or bejeweled brooch where you anchor the veil, on either side of your head.  Pairs perfectly with slim-fitting hourglass gowns.

The ballet veil ends somewhere between the knee and the ankle.  Veering a little more toward the untraditional, less formal, this veil goes well with simple gowns that are not flared.  May I suggest you round the bottom of the veil and be sure there are some feminine embellishments, otherwise this style tends to look very off the rack.  Even if you did buy it off the rack, you need it to look more romantic than this style tends to be when it is all one length.
