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.
