WEDDING VEILS, FINGERTIP, CHAPEL OR CATHEDRAL
Whether nylon or pure silk, a tulle bridal veil is a classic choice that drapes the bride in timeless splendor. English silk tulle is soft, fluid and drapes closer to the body than nylon tulle. The traditional nylon bridal tulle has a more crisp character with body than silk tulle and is popular for its affordability.
Many brides are confused about mixing their bridal veil with a headpiece and can feel overwhelmed with too many accessories. While sometimes it is best to keep things simple, it may also be a vision of beauty to wear a flower crown or tiara with a simple circle blusher veil.
Birdcage veils are widely held as a perfect bit of retro mystery for a vintage inspired & casual wedding. Cage veils can be worn off to the side as a peek-a-boo veil or as a full coverage blusher veil. The birdcage veil that is gathered onto a comb, can also be worn at the back of the head as a sweet mini veil after the ceremony.
Simple cut edge veil lengths that fall somewhere between the waist to 12″ or so past a cathedral length dress train with no embellishments.
The Juliet cap veil is a timeless classic that was originally in Vogue during the 1920s & 1930s, but a revival of the Juliet cap has been in demand fro the past few years. These ultra feminine bridal caps can be made of plain tulle or trimmed with silk flowers & trims.
Usually a long, Spanish style circular veil of lace edged tulle that frames the face, the mantilla veil is usually secured with a comb at the crown of the head. I like to offer my mantilla veils without a comb which limit placement of the veil. The mantilla veil is also beautiful draped over the head as a circle blusher veil & then after the ceremony the bridal can pin the lace at the top of her head.
This veil is gathered at the crown of the head to create a cascading effect around the face. The waterfall veil will usually have a blusher to add to the fullness. Rhinestones add beautiful spots of sparkle to a water fall veil!
Whether you choose a demure cage veil or lush cathedral train, your bridal trousseau should reflect your unique style and individual beauty.
