3 Tips for Choosing Your
Wedding Veil

Planning a wedding can be very overwhelming, especially with all of the details you have to remember to take care of, including choosing the right veil. While it may seem like an easy task, the selection process can be challenging because of the different options and styles available, but the following tips can help eliminate stress and make veil shopping enjoyable:

  1. Always choose your dress before you pick your veil. Your wedding dress must be selected first so that you choose a veil that complements your gown. If you don’t proceed in this order, you may find that the veil doesn’t flatter the dress and may serve as a distraction instead of being the perfect accessory to your wedding gown. To prevent a disastrous pairing, pick your dress first so that you know which styles of veils are suitable and you’ll have an easier time choosing your veil, which can consist of lace, pearls or beadwork, depending on your gown. Choosing a veil with a complimentary trim or style element that matches the gown is always a good idea and knowing the style of your gown will help you select a veil that is the right length.
  2. Set up a budget in advance. Veils are available at different price points, so it’s better to know what your budget is right from the start so that you don’t waste time looking at veils you will not purchase. The price of a veil will also depend on the length and fabric you’re after, as well as the detailing, all of which will increase the price. Knowing where you stand in terms of your budget will narrow down the options and make the process easier. It will also help you determine whether or not this is an area in which you can splurge a little bit more.
  3. Consider the hairstyle you will have on your big day to determine if the veil you like will sit well with your hairdo. Most brides have a preference in terms of how high or low they’d like their veil to be placed and the hairstyle will play a role in this. An updo will be very different than leaving your hair down, so have an idea of what you’d like to do to your hair on your wedding day so that you select a veil accordingly and its placement won’t be problematic. Your hairstyle will also help you select the right material because some brides will want their hair to show, in which case they would need a sheer veil.
