Veils come in many different shapes, colors, lengths and styles. But lucky for you, there isn’t only one perfect veil for each wedding dress. The veil you should wear on your wedding day is the one you like the most! That’s it. But here are a few veil facts that might help you find just what you are looking for.

Veils can come in many different shapes. Some are oval, some circle, and some are even more of a square shape. Each will frame your face differently, so you might find you prefer one shape to the others.

Veils come in a variety of colorways. You will want to find a veil that matches the color of your dress. If your dress has two tones then you have multiple options. Common veil colors are white, ivory, champagne, blush, and butterscotch, but there are even more options if none of those quite fit what you are looking for. Your consultant will have a trained eye to help you find the perfect color of veil to match your dress.

Veils can come in about any length you can imagine, but the most typical veil lengths are elbow, fingertip, waltz, floor and cathedral. Each offer their own unique look to complement your wedding dress. A knowledgeable consultant will be able to walk you through selecting the perfect veil length to complete your wedding day look.

The style of your veil is what you and likely others will notice more than anything else. Most veils will fall into three different style categories: lace, beads or plain. These are very broad categories and there are so many veils that have lace and beads or something else altogether. But this will give you a nice place to get started when deciding exactly how you want your veil to look.
