Veils for Every Gown Silhouette


You might be wondering how to choose a wedding veil, now that you’ve selected the perfect gown. We’re here to help! Check out our expert stylists’ advice about which veils best complement your dress!ba-veil-lengths-2017


Love the hip-hugging, flared skirt of a mermaid or trumpet? A fingertip veil drifts to 38” and a waltz veil to 60”. These mid-length styles end right about where your skirt flares out, perfectly balancing your silhouette. Consider just one tier, so the back of your gown will remain visible through the tulle!


Ever imagine yourself in a gorgeous ball gown? Bring your fairy tale to life! A short elbow veil hits around your waist and beautifully offsets the voluminous skirt. A formal cathedral veil provides a frame for your outfit and transforms your look with elaborate beading, lace, embroidery, or rhinestones.


The A-line gown is on our A-list: it looks amazing on most body types! Veils may be paired with the length of your train: our floor length is 72”, chapel is 90”, and cathedral is 108” long. You can select lace to add romance, rhinestones for a splash of sparkle, or a plain trim for classic elegance.


The cool, 90’s inspired sheath dresses are coming back. These slim-fitting gowns don’t need a lot of veil—try pairing a shoulder length veil or a French net to get that whimsical bridal look. Another great option is a plain cut edge cathedral veil that blows behind you like a wisp on the breeze.


Your short bridal dress will be a mini version of the ball gown, A-line, or sheath silhouette. Aside from choosing stunning shoes, you’ll want to select a veil that falls no lower than your waist line: elbow, shoulder, and French net veils are ideal.
