Insider Tips: How Bridal Salons Care for Your Wedding Veil

handsome-young-groom-lifting-his-pretty-new-wife-000032877848_medium

Avoid Plastic

Plastic and sunlight can discolor tulle or beading over a long period of time. It’s best to store your veil in a non-plastic garment bag in a closet. Bridal salons hang veils from clips or hoops on a rolling rack. You can imitate this method by clipping your veil onto a hanger. If it is long, double up the tulle so it does not drag on the floor.

Keep It Safe

We recommend storing your wedding ensemble in a dry, safe location. Hang up your gown and veil, and keep your other accessories in a pocket of the garment bag or in a special box—away from children and pets. If you’re headed to a destination wedding, carry on as much as possible. Staying organized will prevent loss or damage to your items.

Mind Your Train

Many brides bring their veil and accessories to a hair trial appointment. This is ok, so long as you’re SUPER careful—all it takes it one person to accidentally step on the edge and you’ve got a hole! Tulle is very delicate and tears cannot be fixed. Keep an eagle eye open and make sure that your veil does not catch or snag on anything.

No Food or Liquids

Unless you’re wearing black on your wedding day, any spill will show up. The safest policy is to not eat or drink anything when trying on your gown and veil. (In fact, some bridal salons do not allow food or beverages for this reason.) Make sure your nail polish is 100% dry and ask your MOH to carry stain remover, just in case!

Avoid Irons

Please do not iron your veil. Just. Don’t. The heat from the iron can melt or discolor the delicate tulle fabric and then the beautiful veil will be ruined. As with your wedding gown, this special accessory should be professionally steamed at a bridal salon. Alternately, you can hang it up for a few days to let the folds/wrinkles fall out.

Why a Wedding Veil is a Bride’s Best Friend

2017-web-image-file_6702-4

They say dogs are man’s best friend (though some of us prefer cats). Other people firmly believe that diamonds are a girl’s best friend—or perhaps chocolate.

On your wedding day, however, your veil is your best friend! This time-honored accessory is always a good choice for your bridal outfit—and here’s why.

2015_08_06_belairebridal_0416

Figure-Flattering

The secret to choosing the perfect veil is in selecting one that complements your gown silhouette. Your veil has a figure-flattering effect that can lengthen your torso or balance the fullness of your dress.

2015_08_06_belairebridal_0197.jpg

Face-Flattering

The veil you choose can also frame your face. A narrow veil with lots of gathers will help elongate a short face, while a flat mantilla or wider veil with layers will shorten a long face.

2017-Web-Image-File_6727-2.jpg

Theme-Enriching

If you’re a princess bride, a cathedral veil completes your ensemble like nothing else. If you’re a romantic bride, lace is the way to go. If you’re a vintage-inspired bride, French net adds authentic style. Your veil is the ultimate accessory when it comes to creating a themed look!

Bel-Aire-Bridal-KT-Merry-6587-1.jpg

Photo-Enhancing

Go on Pinterest and you’ll see what we mean! Veils are a gorgeous addition to your wedding-day photos, whether they’re wrapped around you in a romantic cocoon, or blowing freely in the breeze.

2015_08_06_belairebridal_0849.JPG

Bridal

Ever see a woman wearing a veil on her birthday? Neither have we. Your wedding is the only time you’ll wear a stunning veil—so give it a go! Even strangers will know you’re a bride and shower you with love on your big day.

zkurt_boomer_photography_310.jpg

Personal

Modern veils are available in a variety of trims and lengths. You have the opportunity to personalize your ensemble by choosing one you love—whether it has scattered lace or shimmering rhinestones, four layers or just one.

2017-web-image-file_v7377c

Beautiful

That moment when a bride walks down the aisle in her wedding veil is irreplaceable. Everyone from your mother and father to your groom and best friend will get teary-eyed. A veil adds utterly magical bridal beauty.
