Wedding Dress: David Tutera for Mon Cheri

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
