As you gaze at yourself in the oval-glass mirror, someone helps you put your veil on.
And that’s it. You’ve had made a memory. As you smile at your reflection, you no longer see a woman in a beautiful white gown, you see a bride.
Your veil is more than a simple accessory for your gown. It is the accessory that’s going to set off your gown, accentuate your figure and highlight your beautiful face. This diaphanous piece of fabric gives you more choices than you know what to do with.
What material do you want it in? What colours do you have to choose from? Are there multiple varieties of veils to choose from? The questions go on.
But we’re going to take this one step at a time. So before we start all else, you need to decide how to determine the length of your veil.
Step 1: Decide on the way you intend to style your hair before choosing the length of your veil. The hair accessories and hairdo you choose determines the height at which your veil will be pinned.
Step 2: While your veil is the most important accessory, remember not to let it overpower your gown. Choose a veil that flows 3 inches below the back neckline of your gown. The extra 3 inches will make you look elegant and tall. Add an extra touch of class by making sure that there isn’t a break between the veil and the back neckline of your gown.
Step 3: To effectively accentuate your figure, take your height into consideration. An elbow-length veil is perfect for you, if you’re shorter than 5’4”. However, consider going for a fingertip-length veil, which accentuates your frame, if you’re taller than 5’7”. If you’re in between these heights, let your gown and heart-strings decide what kind of veil would suit you best.
Step 4: You now have a fairly clear idea of what to keep in mind while selecting your veil. Follow these three steps and you’re golden! The last thing you need to, that would finally determine the exact length of your veil would be to check out the types of veils available. From Birdcage veils to Cathedral veils, we’ve got it all covered in our next post.
