Choosing the perfect bridal veil can be a pretty daunting task, because it is these small things that put the finishing touches to a wedding dress. We know how frustrating and time consuming it can get deciding on matters like these, so we decided to help out on this. Here are some pointers regarding the perfect bridal veil:

The opposing principle applies to choosing a bridal veil. If your dress is fancy, choose one that is simple and won’t attract too much attentions. However, if your dress is plain, then you can go for something that has more detail, and intricacy. If you are planning to attach some things like flowers or crystals to your headdress, then make sure it started below from where your dress ornamentation ends. For example, the decoration on a cathedral veil should cover the bottom third part of the veil only.

It is always better to use crystals in place of rhinestones because they reflect light better and give a sparkly look. They also come out better in photographs, as opposed to rhinestones which can come out looking like black dots. In many, you should choose ribbon trim over unfinished tulle. However, you should keep in mind that this looks best on longer veils, since the horizontal line of the ribbon on shorter veils can reach till directly the middle part of your body, making you look shorter.

Sometimes, a poufy headpiece can give the illusion of extra height, but make sure that you don’t overdo it. It will end up making you look like a mushroom. One common mistake that most brides make is that when trying on a veil they only look at themselves from the front in a mirror. Remember, that all eyes are you from every possible direction on your big day, so it is crucial that you examine how your veil looks from all angles. A veil that looks good on you from the front might not look good from the sides or the back.

Another great option is to use the lace from your mother or grandmother’s wedding dress have create a new veil from it. Not only will it have sentimental value, it will be unique and save you some money, of course. Don’t try to dye an antique veil in a bid to match it to your dress. It’s not necessary that everything has to be matching, much like the shoes or the bridal bouquet. The new fashion rule is that they just have to complement each other.

Some of the different types of bridal veils you can choose from includes the Angel style, which is a long and straight veil cut wide at the sides. It looks a little bit like angel wings, from which the name drew inspiration. The Butterfly veil is an oval-shaped style that is folded in half. The ribbon attached at the edge gives a crescent outline rather than a straight line. Another bridal veil style is the chapel, which is quite short but sometimes worn with a sweep train to make it look longer.
