Hello, loves! Chances are when you got engaged the first thing you did was shop for your wedding gown. (I know I did!) It’s interesting how wedding magazines feature gown after gown across the cover and inside its pages, yet wedding veils don’t get nearly the same attention. And, while wedding gowns have changed dramatically over decades, the wedding veil hasn’t changed much at all. The wedding veil is still one of the most classic, elegant accessories for the bride to be – and you have to admit, there’s plenty of veil styles from which to choose. So, if you’re wondering how cathedral, chapel, ballet, and blusher veils are different, you’re about to find out… read on to see nine wedding veil styles, lengths, and get inspired with hand-picked handmade wedding veil options. Enjoy!
