The wedding veil, an important part of the bridal attire, is worn as a symbol of purity and joy. The veil transforms you from an ordinary woman to a blushing bride. The wedding veil frames your face, creates an aura of mystery and imparts a touch of formality to the wedding.

Embroidered, beaded, lace trimmed, scalloped edge and satin edge - wedding veils come in many styles. From custom made veils to off-the-shelf veils, ensure that your veil complements your gown and your entire bridal ensemble. Check out our guide to wedding veils.


Wedding veil styles

While choosing the right veil, the material of the veil and its length has to be considered. Ensure that the wedding veil complements your height, dress style and length as well as the dress detailing. A blusher is a shoulder-length layer of the veil that covers the face. This style can be combined with different lengths of veils. A blusher lends a feminine touch that is soft and appealing.


Cathedral length veil imparts a very formal and traditional look. Here, the veil should fall at least a foot onto the train of the gown. This veil should only be chosen for very formal weddings. Chapel length veil reaches the floor. It is worn by combining with other shorter layers. You can go in for the elbow length veil if you are planning to wear floor length gown with no train. Chapel veils go well with long sleeved formal gowns.


Elbow length veils are ideal for formal weddings. Fingertip veils are usually worn with longer gowns. Alternatively you can also opt for the shoulder length veil, which just about reaches your shoulder. This veil is particularly worn with wedding gowns with very elaborately designed backs.Whatever the material or size, there are few important tips to be remembered when choosing a veil.


  • The veil should emphasize the dress and should in no way overpower it.

  • The blushers should not be too long, as they may tangle with the flowers. Do remember that very long blushers may be difficult to lift during the marriage ceremony.

  • Two-tiered veils tend to suit nearly all brides as they give a fuller appearance and have the capacity to frame your face on both the sides.

Wedding veil guide


With natural fiber gowns of silk or lace you can opt for a tulle veil, which tends to drape more naturally. Organza and chiffon are popular materials for wedding veils. Ensure that the raw edges are trimmed and scalloped or hemmed. Chiffon veils drape beautifully. The finger tip veil with extra width imparts a full look.

A single tiered veil will provide you minimum fullness at the top yet give you plenty of swing. You can also add any other decorations to your veil. You can embellish your wedding veil with rhinestones, sequins and pearls for subtle sparkle and sheen.

There are also veils which do not reflect flash from your cameras, creating a soft matte look. Take care that the shimmer in your veil is elegant, not overpowering. The veil should not only accent your gown but also frame your face giving you that elegant, bridal touch. Pick up the veil in the right color, be it ivory, white or diamond white. You can even opt for a warm pink or coral.
