The meaning of a wedding veil

The tradition of wearing a veil at your wedding has been around for centuries, and remains a super romantic accessory for your wedding look. A long time ago veils were worn for certain reasons that we now question. For example, the bride’s face had to be covered so that the spirits could not see how beautiful the bride was. In addition, veils were also made extra heavy so brides could not run away. Today, fortunately, all that is different and veils are often worn because it is a beautiful addition to your bridal look or because it is a family tradition. Veils are also considered trendy and the biggest bridal fashion designers today still design veils for celebrities like model Hailey Bieber and influencer Chiara Ferragni.

When to wear your veil?

When you wear a veil as a bride, it is customary to wear it at least during the ceremony. Wearing a veil during the ceremony can create a special moment and add to the romance of the moment! Many brides take it off before or after, basically because it’s just a little impractical and especially if you plan on dancing all night!

Different types of veils

From short to long veils, and from white to pink shades. The variety is endless. The most commonly worn veil among brides is the elbow length veil, it has a length of about 70-75cm, not too short and not too long! It is a versatile choice that goes well with different types of wedding dresses. Looking for a slightly longer veil? Then consider going for a veil with a fingertip length or roller length. These just slightly longer styles add a touch of elegance to your bridal look and also add just a little something extra in your wedding photos. In terms of color, white is the most traditional. Nowadays it is of course much more common to experiment with different colors and give your bridal outfit a unique detail, for example with a champagne color or soft pink. And of course, if you want to stand out, you can also go for that one neon color ;). With so much choice, you are sure to find a veil that perfectly matches your dress and your personal style.

What you should think about when buying a wedding veil

Before buying a veil, there are some important considerations you should take into account. After all, a veil is meant to complete your overall bridal look. Therefore, it is important that you make the right choice that matches your style and the rest of your outfit. Dress first, veil later: our advice is to choose your veil only after you have chosen your wedding dress. This will ensure that the veil matches the style, material and details of your dress perfectly. Next, think about your hairstyle and wedding jewelry. Some veils are made to be worn with a pinned hairstyle, where others are better suited with loose hair. So when choosing your bridal hairstyle, try to keep your dream veil in mind.

Bridal veil budget

Finally, consider your budget. Bridal veils can really go from one side to the other in terms of price. Prices vary greatly due to differences in brand or length. So are you looking for an expensive or yet slightly cheaper bridal veil? Determine your budget in advance, this way you can look much more focused during your search!
