The official guide to choosing the right veil from expert veil designer Justine M Couture

Ahhh the Veil, symbol of feminine beauty [briefly hidden], virtue and innocence come down the aisle to wed!  Absent for a few decades as a wedding trend, the Veil is back! We offer you an Encyclopedia of Veil terms to help you navigate this romantic and classic tradition with style.  and it a great big beautiful way!  A few to start you off...

Gown meet Veil - Veil meet Gown…

Your gown is the best tool to use when selecting a veil and accessories.  This single item so intimately highlights the outline of your personality.  A simple gown with clean lines is a clean canvas to paint on it what you will …..add a lace veil [like the one by Justine M Couture below] for a romantic vintage touch, a heavily beaded or embroidered veil for classic elegance or keep it simple with a raw cut (no trim) for effortless sophistication. 

Make your veil work for you!

Other fun tips to consider is that most cathedral veils can we double up as a wrap for an evening reception by placing the veil over the shoulders, for a multi purpose look.  Long veils can also be bustled into the skirt of the gown so that you get to wear them for longer and highlight any embroidery or detail…… be sure to make the veil work for you!  

Length, Cut and Details

The veil’s length, cut, styling and details are easier to select if you consider the style of your bridal gown.  Consideration should always be given to the back of the gown to ensure that any particular pattern or cut, bow or waist band, bustle, belt or beading on the back of your gown isn’t compromised by adding a veil with competing trim or mainly in the wrong length.  Elaborate and flamboyant gowns can be enhanced by dramatic or simple veils, depending on the wearer’s personality. 

  • Gown Shape and Width

    When choosing a veil your bridal gown’s shape and width should be considered:

    A gown with a lot of movement works well with a wavy or “waterfall” cut veil.
  • A full-skirted ball gown is the perfect gown to pair with a wide cut or “teardrop” shape veil to encompass the width of the full skirt. 
  • A gown with very straight or clean lines works well with any veil, as you can either mirror the line of the dress or create more volume with shape.
  • You can create a more dramatic silhouette with any veil by adding layers, thereby adding volume and character. Consider a circular cut veil where the comb is in the center of a circle or oval so that the trimmed edge sits around the base of the veil (i.e. away from the face) allowing you to wear a more elaborately trimmed veil.

Some 2016 Veil trends are gorgeous and dramatic lace veils, Juliet Cap veils, embellished veils with pearls and stones and sparkle, and the classic double layer veil so popular in the 1950's...enjoy!

Style Alert: The Juliet Capped Veil, thank you Downtown Abbey!

Shakespeare's famous tale of love "Romeo and Juliet" offers visions of true love, romantic drama, and hearts filled with longing. One of this year's hottest trends the Juliet Cap Veil offers all that and more. With it's snug to the head style, often delicately embroidered like the Willow Veil by Designer Justine M Couture seen here, plus a gathered side or back and long veil trailing down, this look is very classic, feminine and very Downton Abbey! Top veil and accessory designer Justine M of Justine M Couture [whose beautiful veils and jewelry are top sellers at Kleinfled New York] says "The Juliet Cap Veil is really having a revival with on trend brides. Queen Elizabeth II's mother Elizabeth wore a capped veil in her 1922 wedding to Albert who sooon became King of England.* This feminine, snugly capped veil style matches perfectly with 1920's styled silk biased gowns, big floral arrangements, romantic weddings and all romantic styles from the past!" 

*Editor's note: movie fans may note that Elizabeth and Albert were the royal main characters in the movie "The King's Speech" played by Helena Bonham Carter and Colin Firth...

Everything you ever wanted to know about Veils...

Selecting the perfect Bridal Veil to go with your gown is an art! A veil is not something we wear everyday, and selecting one that suits your own style [and that perfectly complements your bridal gown] can be a daunting task. Veils add an extra sense of tradition and flair for occasion. And your veil should enhance your style and personality.

Fun Fact: Did you know that in Ancient Rome Brides appeared enveloped in a saffron-colored haze that symbolized the flame of Vesta, the goddess of home and the provider of life? 

In the modern world… women have a fresh approach when it comes to thinking about the wedding veil, now considered a bridal accessory, rather than a tool worn for modesty.

Today we bring you the first in a weekly series of tried and tested “veil facts” to help any bride find the perfect veil! Designer Justine M of Justine M Couture says...

There are 6 key things to consider when selecting your veil style:

  1. Veil Length (short & flirty or long & dramatic) should complement your gown
  2. The cut of the Veil (refers to the Veil's shape) again be sure to pair with your gown
  3. The gather/thickness of the Veil (the way the veil is attached to the comb)
  4. The number of layers the Veil has (1 is translucent, 2 or more is bold and mysterious)
  5. The Veil's trim (lace along the edge?) or decorative beading (scattered beading?)
  6. The comb type (the way the Veil attaches to your head)

Some brides love a dreamy and bold “full poufy” look that multiple layers creates and some brides prefer a more simple “fine gather” look with a simple trim. Your veil matches your personality more than any other accessory!

Justine M Couture has the capacity to cut any veil in a variety of different thicknesses and lengths. Also comfort is a huge factor on your wedding day so be sure to pick a veil with a metal comb [the only type Justine M Couture uses] that will be comfortable and easy on your hair.
