6 Ways to Wear a Veil
Since there are so many types and styles of veils from which to choose, we’re showcasing six hand-picked styles to illustrate different ways to wear a veil. While there are plenty more than six ways to wear a veil, this list should help you to get an idea of which style suits you best.
1. The Bridal Cap
A bridal cap is one unique style of veil that combines a beaded corded lace edge, sparkly stones, velvet millinery leaves, and soft organza petals to make a wow-worthy statement as you walk down the aisle.
2. Birdcage Veil
A birdcage veil is simple, classy, and gives an ever-so-subtle illusion with soft tulle. Measures 12″ in length.
3. Waist Length Veil
A waist length veil can be worn at the top of your head or lower to accommodate a particular hairstyle. This particular style is called Natalia and has an alencon lace edge. Veil measures 31″ in length.
4. Fingertip Length Veil
The fingertip length veil – this style in particular named Fabiola – has an ultra soft double face satin ribbon edge. Veil measures 40″ in length (longer than the waist length veil) and is attached to a silver metal comb for easy addition to any hairstyle.
5. The Three-Tier Veil
This lovely traditional veil features three tiers of soft illusion tulle. This is my style of veil, as it provides tons of fullness for a wow statement. Veil is sewn to a silver metal comb and its longest tier measures 28 inches in length.
6. The Veil Alternative
Last but not least, if you prefer a statement piece without wearing a traditional veil, a veil alternative is a fantastic option. The Violet headpiece is a gorgeous alternative that provides a bridal look without the length of a veil. This corded lace headband is made of freshwater pearls, crystals, and sparkly stones and is sewn to a beaded lace applique. Headband ties with a double face satin ribbon.
