To veil, or not to veil: that is the question. That’s how the saying goes, right? Totally kidding! But to answer the question, we’re all in favor of rocking a veil on your wedding day. Why? Um, have you seen the gorgeous shots where the veil is flowing in the wind… or the ones where it’s framing the couple oh-so perfectly? Talk about DREAMY. Besides, when else would you wear a veil?
If you’re looking for another reason to don a veil, take your pick: veils can be figure flattering and complement your gown’s silhouette, they can also frame your face so nicely (especially if your hair is up!), it’s another opportunity to personalize your look, and well, they’re just gorgeous! Curious to see all the different options for veils + just how much they can enhance a bridal look? Let’s take a peek at some of our faves from Bel Aire Bridal!
The Best Prop
We weren’t kidding about how veils can enhance photos and actually be the best prop! Whether you and your love are letting the veil be windswept + wild, or you’re taking sultry bridal portraits, it certainly makes everything just a bit dreamier… Can you imagine floating down the aisle wearing this luxe tulle cathedral veil? So simple, yet so unbelievably stunning.
Has your hair stylist ever recommended face-framing layers? Well that’s exactly what a veil will do — frame your face, oh-so elegantly, even if your hair is up! P.S. That sweet veil on the right, with the scalloped curve edge and lace lip, is none other than the Unbeaded Alençon Lace Veil. Want something a little more glamorous that will trail behind you? Why not try out the 2-Tier Foldover Lace Veil (seen on the left)?
Amp up the drama with this Rolled Edge and Lace Cathedral Veil! Stunning + utterly romantic, this long sweeping veil could pair perfectly with so many different gown styles, due to its enchanting simplicity. We’re big fans of the scattered lace appliqués along the bottom… plus, it’s dotted with delicate beading, so it sparkles in the light!
Oh me, oh my! This scalloped edge beauty is the epitome of Old World grace.
Let your dress shine, while still being framed by dainty floral appliqués! Seen on the left is the 1-Tier Waltz Length Rolled Edge Veil with Alençon Lace.
Are you wearing a dress with volume? A veil is a great way to balance the fullness of your dress! Or… complement your curves with a dramatic swirling veil that emphasizes the silhouette of the dress!
Personalize Your Look
A major bonus? Modern veils come in so many varieties of lengths + trims, so you can completely personalize your bridal look! Whether you’re seeking scattered lace, shimmering rhinestones, delicate beading… or maybe all three, Bel Aire Bridal has just the thing.
Curious as to what the most popular veil lengths are today? We’re glad you asked! Fingertip and cathedral, as well as waltz length veils, which are on-trend this season, too.
