Want to know how to choose a bridal veil, but you’re not sure exactly what you want? This quick guide to wedding veils will help you decide what style best fits your personality. Check it out!


Heart-fluttering, swoonworthy, blushing, beautiful, ravishing—are you in heaven, yet? If you’re a romantic bride, your idea of the perfect day is filled with feminine colors like blush or lavender and classic florals like roses or peonies. You might be wearing a tulle overskirt, dimensional flowers, ruffles and layers, or pretty lace.

Pair your feminine look with a dramatic veil. Gorgeous Alençon lace, beautiful Venise lace, soft Chantilly lace, simple cut edge, and ethereal layers add to the beauty of your style. Consider a cathedral veil with a blusher to complete your dream ensemble.

You don’t want to look stodgy, old-fashioned, or overdressed. If you’re a fun and flirty bride, you might be getting married at the park. Your perfect look is casual, pretty, and reflects your light-hearted personality. The dress for you might be short and summery or totally trendy—either way, nothing could dampen your spirits on your special day!

An easy-going bride should still wear a veil—this is your one shot, and why not? The pics will look amazing! Go for a shorter veil such as a French net or blusher, as these styles are easy to wear, show off your personality, and look the best with casual dresses. For a trendy and modern look, a veil with tiny flowers, slight beading, or metallic accents will speak to your style.

Fashion-forward and fabulous, you’re the type of bride who is obsessively planning the wedding with inspiration from high-class events and celebrity styles. Your couture gown is made by a prominent designer; your chic, glamorous look demands stunning accent pieces!

Top off your special day with an exceptionally gorgeous veil. You can select a style of any length to complement your gown, but a cathedral will add extra drama. Be sure to explore different trims and find one that appeals to you—we suggest a beautifully finished design with sparkling rhinestones, twinkling crystals, or elegant embroidery. Pair your extravagant veil with shoes and jewelry of equal caliber.

Timeless, traditional, simple, elegant—sound about right? If you’re a classic bride, you want to look beautiful but not too trendy—after all, fads come and go. Your wedding needs just the right touch of feminine charm, so you’ve selected a modest dress with pretty details and a simple silhouette.

Accent your look with a veil that is pretty without being overdone. Match the silhouette of your gown with any length—we recommend fingertip, if you’re not sure—and choose a simple trim that complements your dress. Beaded edge veils look great with beaded gowns, while floral accents pair beautifully with lace or embroidered edges. Cut edge goes with everything. Try a few styles and find the perfect fit.

Ready to get your vintage glam on? You’re vibing on a cute Audrey Hepburn dress, non-traditional steampunk outfit, or jazzy Gatsby gown. Your look is unique and inspired by what inspires you: anything from prim 1950s lace to retro 1980s bows. Collecting knick-knacks and converting thrift-store finds is what DIY brides do best.

Top off your look with a veil you’ll love not having to make yourself! If you’re wearing lace, try a lace-trimmed shoulder or elbow length veil. Want to be really edgy? A French net or vintage bridal hat transforms your style with old-fashioned pizazz.

Going away to tie the knot? Your destination wedding look is light and romantic: soft, flowing layers and feminine ruffles help define your bridal style. If your ceremony is on the beach, you’ve selected exotic, tropical flowers for your bouquet and hair—if you’re getting married in a far-off city, your look is utterly magical.

Complete your dream ensemble with an ethereal veil—people love to see a bride out and about! Sparkling rhinestones, shimmering beads, or glistening crystals shimmer by sunlight or candlelight, adding fantastic allure. Cut edge tulle floats on the breeze, giving you artistic photos. Choose a style as unique as your love story for an unforgettable look.

Whether you’re saying “I do” in a treehouse, in a mountain meadow, or in front of crashing waves, you are in love with the bohemian look. Your free-spirited style reflects your offbeat individuality—you may not even use a bouquet, and your dress probably features a pattern or colors. A summer wedding is totally you. Bare feet and eclectic accessories complete your laid-back look.

Upgrade your bridal outfit with a pretty flower halo and a soft, flowing veil. A circle foldover or cut edge design pairs beautifully with any kind of halo or nature-inspired headpiece. If you want a touch of sparkle, go for a veil with warm gold accents or an embellished edge that vibes with your style. Find a perfect treasure for your special day—you only get married once!
