6 Things to Remember When Choosing a Wedding Veil - Reverent Wedding Films™ Skip to main content

When it comes to wedding veils, there are a few classic styles that will never go out of fashion. But every now and then, a new trend emerges and takes the bridal world by storm.

This year, it’s all about the pearl veil!

We asked our brides on our Instagram to vote- Obsessed with the pearl veil? Or love the traditional look? The answer might surprise you!

Take a peek at our top tips to remember when choosing a wedding veil:

Tip 1 | Consider your wedding dress – A veil is the perfect way to add a touch of drama to your wedding dress. A simple, classic gown looks stunning with a pearl veil, whereas a more elaborate dress can be balanced out with a simpler veil.

Tip 2 | Take your venue into account – A long cathedral veil is stunning in a traditional church ceremony, but it might be a bit much if you’re getting married outdoors on a beach. Think about where you’re getting married and pick a veil that will complement your surroundings.

Tip 3 | Keep your hairstyle in mind – The style of your veil should also coordinate with the style of your hair. If you’re wearing your hair down, a simple veil attached at the crown of your head will do the trick. But if you’re wearing an updo, you might want to consider a more dramatic style, like a birdcage veil or a Juliet cap.

Tip 4 | Length is important- Veils come in a variety of lengths, from elbow-length to floor-length. The length you choose should be based on the overall look you are trying to achieve. For example, a shorter veil will add a touch of whimsy to your look, while a longer veil will create a more dramatic effect. Ultimately, the decision is up to you and what makes you feel most comfortable on your big day.

Tip 5 | Have a budget- As you begin your hunt for the perfect wedding veil, it’s important to have a budget in mind. Depending on the style and level of detail, veils can range significantly in price. A simple veil can start at around $250, while more ornate veils can reach upwards of $3,000. Knowing how much you’re willing to spend will help you narrow down your options and find the perfect veil for your big day.

Tip 6 | Try on multiple veils- When it comes to choosing a wedding veil, it’s important to find one that compliments your dress without overshadowing it. Try on multiple veils with your dress to see what looks best. Don’t be afraid to try something you wouldn’t normally go for. You may be surprised that matchy-matchy isn’t always the best way to complement your gown. Find a veil that makes you feel like a bride on your big day!

And finally, don’t forget to have fun with it! After all, your wedding day is all about you and your unique style. So go ahead and experiment with different lengths and styles until you find the perfect veil for you!
