What Is A Cathedral Length Veil?
A cathedral length wedding veil is the ultimate style for a bride who wants a dramatic look. A cathedral bridal veil looks best paired with formal wedding gowns, i.e. a ball gown or cathedral length gown with a very long train. Brides often choose a cathedral length veil for a grand entrance and looks fantastic walking down a long aisle. Officially, a cathedral length veil measures between 108″ and 120″ long.
Cathedral Length Veil Styles
Let’s check out a few (absolutely stunning) veils from the shop! I love #1.
This beautiful wedding veil is handcrafted with soft English tulle imported from Scotland. This veil is soft to the touch and drapes with a full bodied look. Features a 30″ blusher.
The Aspen cathedral length veil features a raw edge stitched to a metal wire bridal comb. This is the most popular veil in the shop as it falls gracefully over the shoulders. While this is a narrower veil, it doesn’t offer the full sweeping cathedral hem. However, you can opt for a wider width if you’d like. This cathedral length veil is stunning!
This stunning veil is drama at its finest featuring a beautiful super-soft English tulle. The tulle is cut into a perfect sweeping oval shape for a pretty, soft, falling veiled look. This veil has a hand-stitched scrolled embroidered lace (embroidered is very popular right now) which starts at the top of the veil and covers the comb and vines down the back of the head. Soft English tulle raw cut edge veil is 96″ wide; 108″ cathedral length veil. Sewn to a metal wire comb.
This bridal veil is billowy beauty at its finest! With FOUR layers of beautiful soft tulle, this veil offers tons of fullness and layers. Veil is 72″ wide; the blusher is 35″ in length, 2nd tier is 60″, the 3rd tier is 90″, and the 4th tier is 125″ for a perfectly long cathedral length. All layers are gathered and stitched to a wide metal comb to fit in with any bridal hairstyle of your choice.
