How to choose the right wedding veil for our look

Nothing makes for a more dramatic entrance than a bride walking in wearing a veil. “A bridal veil in Singapore highlights a bride’s appearance when walking down the aisle.” “It can also enhance the wedding dress by complementing the beading or embroidery on the gown.” But the decision isn’t as simple as “to veil or not to veil.” Different types of veils and lengths can completely transform our wedding style. While a blusher may convey a retro-chic vibe, a cathedral-length veil feels conventional and so dramatic. To help decide the style that is right for our wedding.


Going for a less traditional look with classic appeal? “A blusher is a short veil (usually 30″ in length) that falls over the face and ends near the top of the dress.” “During the ritual, it is pulled back to reveal the bride, which makes for an exciting and moving moment—the first time the groom sees his bride’s face.”


If we want a more conservative look for our ceremony, an elbow-length veil is an elegant way to cover-up without wearing a bulky bolero or shrug. “An elbow veil (usually 32″ in length) falls gracefully over the shoulders to the bride’s—we guessed it—elbow.”


“A fingertip veil (usually 38-40” in length) falls beyond the bride’s hips and is a popular choice because it allows any design on the back of a bride’s gown to be seen through the sheer fabric.” And with all of the gorgeous, detailed-back wedding dresses spotted on the runway this season, who would not want to show off that angle?


There is no rule that says we need to take off our veil for the reception. But if we do choose to keep it on, make sure it won’t get the in the way of dancing and mingling. “A waltz veil (usually 60″ in length) falls to the mid-calf and is a great option for those who want to wear a longer veil for the reception, but still want the freedom to move throughout the evening.”


“A floor-length veil (usually 72” in length) just grazes the floor and matches the length of the bride’s gown.”The flowing fabric will add extra volume to your look, perfect for a bride who was torn between a ball gown and more streamlined silhouette.


Opting to forgo a train? A chapel-length veil will create the illusion of a train, without any pesky bustling required. “A chapel-length veil (usually 90″ in length) sweeps across the floor extending slightly beyond the bride’s gown.”


For the most regal entrance, we must have a cathedral-length veil. “A cathedral-length veil (usually 108″-120″ in length) extends beyond the train of the bride’s gown and is the most dramatic down-the-aisle length.”

Before we decide on our perfect veil length, we should also consider our hairstyle. If we are thinking of wearing our hair down in loose romantic waves, a veil will probably look best pinned to top of our head. For a pretty (and easy!) finish to an up do, try a tiara or headband. And no matter what, do not forget to bring our hair accessories to our trial so that our stylist can create the perfect do. To read more about batik shirts men visit.
