As a bride, you want every detail of your special day to be perfect, and that includes your bridal ensemble. Wedding veils hold significant meaning and will add a touch of elegance and tradition to your look on the day. Let’s explore the different types of wedding veils, the best brands to consider, the latest trends. By the end, you’ll have all the knowledge needed to choose the perfect veil that complements your wedding dress.


Types of Wedding Veils

There are many types of wedding veils to choose from, each bridal veil with its own unique style and length.
Let’s explore some of the most popular styles:


Cathedral Veils

If you want a regal and dramatic entrance down the aisle, a cathedral veil is the perfect choice for you. The Cathedral length veil is the longest type of veil you can wear. These veils are known for their length, extending beyond the train of your wedding dress. Cathedral Veils produce such a grand effect, a common chapel veil for formal ceremonies or those held in grand venues such as a ballroom.



Fingertip Veils

For a fun versatile and timeless bridal veil, consider a fingertip length veil. These veils sit at the fingertips when worn, striking a balance between traditional and contemporary. Fingertip veils work perfectly for a low fuss bride that wants to be able to wear her veil all night long and will complement various gown silhouettes, adding a touch of tradition and flirty fun to your bridal style.



Blusher Veils

If you are wanting to evoke a sense of mystery and suspense, the Blusher bridal veil is the veil for you. They cover the bride’s face until lifted by the fiancée during the ceremony or whoever walks you down the aisle, symbolizing the unveiling of the stunning bride. Blusher veils are a classic choice for traditional weddings and deliver a beautiful, angelic look.   



Mantilla or Juliette Veils

Originating from Spanish and European traditions, mantilla veils portray pure timeless beauty and elegance. These veils feature detailed delicate lace borders that frame the face, adding a touch of romance. Mantilla veils are often paired with vintage-inspired dresses to create a stunning bridal look. They also can add just the right amount of flare to a simple wedding dress.




Birdcage Veils

If you’re seeking a retro short veil to pair with your tea length dress, birdcage veils are the ideal choice for your wedding gown. These short veils, often made of netting or lace, cover a portion of the face and add a vintage touch to your bridal look. Birdcage veils are perfect for brides looking for a unique and fashion-forward statement on their special day.

Wedding Veil Trends

Wedding veil trends evolve just like any other fashion trend.
Here are some of the current trends to consider for your bridal look:

Classic Veil Styles

Classic veil styles never go out of fashion. Simple tulle veils with raw edges or rolled edges will continue to be popular among brides for a very long time. These veils effortlessly enhance the bridal look in a soft subtle way without overpowering the wedding dress itself, and allowing the bride’s natural beauty to stand out.



Modern Veil Trends

If you want to make a statement, look into some modern veil trends that offer unique and contemporary options. Consider veils with unexpected elements such as pearls, colourful embroidery, or detachable embellishments. You could even opt for a detachable cape or train rather than a traditional veil. These modern veils showcase your individuality and add a touch of modernity to your wedding style.



Themed Wedding Veils

Themed weddings allow you to express your creativity and personal style. Matching your veil to your wedding theme can create a cohesive look for the day. For bohemian-inspired weddings, consider lace veils with floral accents. For traditional chapel weddings consider a cathedral length veil with a blusher. 

By exploring the different types of wedding veils and staying up-to-date with the latest trends, you can find the ideal wedding veil that complements your wedding dress and personal style.



Remember to consider the significance of the wedding veil and its symbolism in weddings, as it represents purity, modesty, and the bride’s transition into marriage. Whether you opt for a cathedral veil for a grand entrance, a fingertip wedding veil for a timeless look, or a birdcage veil for a touch of vintage glamour, each choice carries its own charm and beauty.

Take your time, try on different veil styles, and consult with your stylist to ensure you find the perfect veil for you, one that makes you feel like the most stunning bride. With the right veil, you’ll create a breathtaking bridal look that leaves a lasting impression on all your loved ones who witness the beginning of your happily ever after.
