Wedding Veils

CHOOSING YOUR BRIDAL VEIL

The wedding day veil is a custom rich in history and tradition, harking back to Medieval times.

In days of yore, the Anglo Saxons draped both bride and groom with a length of fabric during the ceremony, while later, the bride alone received the protection of this ‘care cloth,’ designed to keep harmful spirits at bay.

The head cover next evolved into a canopy and finally the traditional veil, which continues to deliver Olde World elegance to the contemporary bride.

For today’s bride, tradition and personal preference inform the choice of whether to wear a blusher veil over the face.

Bridal veils can be a variety of lengths, exquisitely ornamented, detailed with laces and light catching crystals, or shine with the simplicity imparted by a simple cut edge veil. Veil length should enhance, not compete, with a gown’s style.

DUCHESSE ENGLISH SILK TULLE VEIL

A soft flowing circle drop veil is edged with a soft double gallon edge French Chantilly lace edge chosen for its perfect simplicity.

Whether nylon or pure silk, a tulle veil is a classic choice that drapes the bride in timeless splendor.

French silk tulle is soft, fluid and drapes closer to the body than nylon tulle. Silk tulle can develop an eyelash edge and soften in time with wear & tear. This can be a desirable character of silk tulle to many. Traditional nylon bridal tulle has a more crisp character with body than silk tulle and is popular for its affordability.

Choosing the perfect length, color and style of veil to complete your wedding ensemble can be challenging, and I am happy to answer questions and discuss colors, lengths and embellishments. SEE OUR CLASSIC CUT EDGE VEILS IN ALL LENGTHS
