Hello, loves! Chances are when you got engaged the first thing you did was shop for your wedding gown. (I know I did!)

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!

They do sit in a shoe box in my closet because I can’t bare to wear them and ruin them, but I think I’ll make an exception for our anniversary this year. :)
