Though there’s a trend not to wear a veil today, many brides find veil because this is a type of accessory that is going to make you look show-stopping and make you mom and bridesmaids start crying, in a good way, of course.
There are different types of veils to choose, they should fit your bridal style and look perfect with the dress, so buy the dress before the veil. Make sure your veil doesn’t overshadow your dress, and when you go to your hair trial (and in some cases your actual hair appointment on the day) make sure you bring your veil with you. What hairstyle can you choose to look good with your veil? Let’s see what you can try with different types of veils.
This is the shortest type of veil, and it has gained much popularity in the last few years. They’re usually worn just covering the eyes or extending down to the chin. Such a type of veil looks good with almost any hairstyle: an updo, a side updo, hair down or anything else that you love. There are cool hair combs and decorations that allow easy placing of the veil and keep the veil where you need; such accessories also add to the overall bridal look.
This is my favorite type of the veil because it makes any bride look jaw-dropping, with this veil you’ll look like a goddess! Such a veil is usually held in place with a comb to frame the face. This type of veil looks good with hair down, updos of any kids and side swept hairstyles, too. With a mantilla veil you can also accessorize your hairstyle with a trendy flower crown or some other cool headpiece with beads and flowers.
This is another show stopper that is sure to make all your relatives and friends cry in a good sense. Such a veil is difficult to manage, it may be heavy but it really leaves a stunning impression. It’s perfect for formal weddings, and also for fine art and just ethereal ones. You can use it for making an endless number of stunning photos: boudoir-styled ones, with your groom, with your bridesmaids and with your dress and accessories. The most popular hairstyle is hair down but you can also choose an updo or a half updo to rock. Choose a lace edge cathedral veil and show it at its best to charm everyone!
It’s a perfect way to add a romantic touch and a boho chic feel to you look. As it’s stated in the name, this veil has a cap, so it can be a ready cap or a cap created with a floral crown or a beaded headpiece. Such a veil looks and is kept in place better with long hair down or side swept hair but some updos will also look awesome with a Juliet cap veil.
Two Tier Veil
It’s a veil that has two different lengths. Usually at least one of the tiers can be detached for the reception. Updos and long hair down is right what you need to rock such a veil, other ideas won’t look that good. Get inspired!
