5 Tips for Finding the Right Veil to Match Your Dress

Most brides pay so much attention to their wedding dress that they forget the veil. Well, we’re glad for a chance to remind you here at DLG Bridal. Your wedding veil is a vital part of your wedding day assembles.

There are many options when it comes to your wedding veil. There is the chapel length veil with all its drama. There are also other different lengths, widths, styles, and embellishments when it comes to wedding veils.

With all these options available you could find yourself feeling a bit overwhelmed. Not to worry, this is normal, and we’re here to assist. To help make your decision easier, here are five tips for finding the right veil to match your dress.  

  • Look at The Color

It is usually best to try on your veil along with your dress. That way, you can be sure that it is a close match to your gown in terms of color. You could think your dress is ivory, and an ivory veil would work but find out otherwise. Some could be a whole shade off! While it does not have to be the exact same color, it’s usually best to use a veil with a color that is as close as possible.

  • Look at The Material

For veils, the material could be sheer, or it could be opaque. The look and feel of the material are some of the things you should pay attention to. Pick the one that goes best with your dress. The venue of your wedding could also play a role here. If you’re having an outdoor celebration, something sheer might be best. For an indoor ballroom wedding, pick a veil with a bit of a sheen to spice things up.

  • Length Is Important

The length of the veil you choose should depend on your dress. Some veils work with any kind of gown like the Birdcage Veil. It is short but often makes a statement. Other types of veils run from around 7.5 feet to 20 feet. Pick one that complements your gown without distracting from its beauty. You also want a veil that will perfect your elegant and simplistic look.

  • Factor Your Wedding Ceremony Venue in Too

Where you’ll be holding your wedding should affect the wedding dress and veil that you choose. For example, a long and dramatic veil is a bad idea for a beach wedding. It would most likely be windy, and a long veil could very quickly become a nuisance at that point. For all outdoor weddings, try to avoid longer veils as they could get caught on many things. Some couples also solve this by adding an aisle runner.

  • Pick A Veil That Complements Who You Are

As you decide on a veil please keep in mind that this is your wedding. Whatever kind of veil you choose, it should, at the very least, be one that is comfortable for you. It should also add a stunning touch while keeping you and your style recognizable. Stay true to who you are, and you’ll be just fine.
