The style or silhouette of your wedding dress is the first thing to consider. As a general rule, the slimmer the gown, the longer the veil. For example, a slinky figure-hugging wedding dress with a short train looks fabulous with a long, chapel length veil.

There are so many different lengths, tier choices, fabrics, embellishments, colours to think about its best to try lots of options.

our hairstyle The way you plan to wear your hair on your wedding day will also affect the style of veil you choose. Generally speaking, your hairstyle should compliment your gown. Some veils are designed to be worn high on the head, thus your hairstyle needs to accommodate this. For example, with a down hairstyle, you should wear the veil higher on your head so that it doesn’t fall out.

It is recommended to have a section of your hair up, so that the veil can be anchored on to it. You need to do this, otherwise the veil has insufficient hair to hold on to and can slip out of your hair. Alternatively, if you are having an up hairstyle, position the veil at the top of your up-do, or under the up-do, depending on the look you prefer.
