Wedding veil guide
From wedding veil styles to length and tulle fabric; this comprehensive wedding veil guide will help you to decide which type of veil is right for you.
Your veil can be any length you wish to best suit you and your gown. Here are some examples of different veil lengths. They can be adjusted to suit you, dependant upon your height and dress length.
When finding the measurement for your veil, the most accurate way is to measure from where you would wear the veil in your hair to where you would like the veil to end.
Veils are usually made from a net fabric known as ‘tulle’. The fabric is available in both silk and synthetic tulle.
After extensive testing and working for years with different silk and synthetic tulles, I have found that the embroidery works better on synthetic tulle, as it sits ontop of the synthetic tulle fabric, rather than sitting in the silk fibres, so looks a bit bolder on the synthetic tulle. For this reason, I would always recommend synthetic tulle, unless you specifically would like silk (all of the veils pictured on my site are made from synthetic tulle).
The stock of tulles I use have been specially selected are are of the highest quality synthetic tulle, available in both a soft and firm finish. The soft finish moves and drapes more fluidly and the firm finish tends to have more volume and holds its shape more, with a firmer feel.I offer a range of tulle colours, ranging from shades of ivory and white to soft dove blue to hot pink! When choosing your veil to match your dress it is best to select the shade nearest your dress or a shade lighter.
If you are having a veil that is fixed onto a comb, you can choose the comb it will be attached to, to suit your personal preferences.
