My Struggle with Veils…

Posted on September 8, 2014 by  Miss Long-Distance Bride   //   Comment

I had never really though much about veils before getting engaged. Once I started looking at dresses I began imagining accessories. A lot of the dresses I liked I couldn’t really picture a veil with…so I kind of just knocked it off the list of things to think about. I figured I had just made a decision “no veil” and was proud of myself for being so decisive so fast! But recently I have seen some pictures of brides wearing veils and they are so beautiful! So now I am torn…veil or no veil?

Long Veil

I think ultimately this decision will rely on what dress I end up choosing. At this moment I still think I’m leaning towards no veil…just reflecting on myself I never wear headbands, hats, or clips, and I hardly even wear ponytails! So a veil is an accessory that is just completely foreign to me! DId you wear a veil while walking down the aisle?

Now that I will be in the process of looking for my dress, I figured I’d start looking at veils. I found this article/slideshow that went through some of the more popular styles of veils, went over their characteristics and even gave tips on what hairstyles would work with each veil.

Here’s the four styles they went through with their descriptions, but to see the hairstyle tips you can check out the whole article & slideshow here.

The Bird Cage

What it is: A cage veil is a short style that delicately covers and frames the face. Though it’s most often seen in a wide net, there are many tulle and embellished varieties available as well.

The Fingertip

What it is: One of the most popular veil styles among brides, its length (below the hips and butt) helps create a slimming effect. This type of veil extends to — you guessed it — the fingertips.

The Mantillia

What it is: This long, Spanish-style veil is made of circular-cut fabric. A couple of options with this one: You can wear it as a blusher or secure it to the crown of your head so that it frames your face. The most traditional styles are either all lace or at least have a lace trim.

The 2-Teir

What it is: Like the fingertip, the name says it all. The veil has two layers (or two veils or a veil and blusher) of two different lengths.

Classic veils

Posted on October 19, 2012 by  Miss Fifties Bride   //   Comment

There are so many different types of veils out there and it can be quite confusing. You want to add to your dress, not take away from it. I tend to lean towards a classic style veil and love the cathedral, mantilla, classic princess style and the birdcage. I am currently fixated on the cathedral style and think the long train would look amazing, but I have to wait and see what style of dress I end up getting before I find my prefect veil.

Unveiling a beautiful bride

Posted on September 22, 2010 by  Miss Polka Dot Bride   //   Comment

So when I began thinking about getting married, I was TOTALLY against having a veil. Anddd of course, just like everything else, I’ve begun to change my mind. I’m not really sure exactly what I want or what I’ll end up choosing since you have to have the dress first, but I love mantilla veils. I studied abroad in Granada, Spain – the area where Spanish mantilla veils originate from. Studying abroad changed my life. and it made me who I am today. I’d be so excited to reflect that in my veil. Plus, mantilla veils are absolutely gorgeous and very romantic.

I read that you should have a relatively simple dress or one with lace to have a mantilla veils. We’ll just have to wait and see!

I think I like the veils that have thinner lace bands, rather than the super thick ones.

LOVE this shot of the bride looking out the window.

Classic and timeless. <3
