8 Wedding Veil Styles + How to Design Your Own (by EmmalineBride.com, veil by Unveiled Bridal Designs) #handmade #wedding #veils

Wedding Veil Styles

1. Angle

The Angle is a type of wedding veil that can be worn to the side of the head giving you a slight angle to the front (or to the back of the crown). This particular example features soft illusion netting and is finished with bobby pin loops for easy addition to a fascinator (fascinator example shown in photo below, right).

2. Bavolet

A Bavolet veil has a blusher veil on the front with a back snood style (snood refers to a type of garment worn at the back of a woman’s head). These two types of veils – the blusher and the snood – are sewn together to create one veil. In this particular example, the front veil can be flipped for the reception to provide another look.

3. Blusher

A blusher veil is very versatile and can be worn on the side of the head, back of the head, or flipped for a snooded look at the reception.

4. Elbow Length

This next style offers a dramatic look with fullness. An elbow length veil traditionally hits at your elbow and this particular example measures 32″ in length; it also features a corded edge. Elbow length wedding veils can be one-tiered (as shown) or two-tiered for additional fullness.

5. Fingertip Length

The fingertip length veil is a traditional choice and, as shown below, can be made in a two-tiered style for added volume. The second tier can be used as a blusher when you walk down the aisle, which can be then worn back during the reception. As the name suggests, this veil measures approximately to the length of your fingertips.

6. Cap

The cap refers to the portion of the veil that sits atop the head and frames the face. This particular example, for instance, uses ribbon to create a capped look that is simply timeless.
