Many brides know exactly what they want in looking for a veil, while others are overwhelmed by the options. Whether you prefer your veil traditionally long and lacy, or you desire nothing but a simple birdcage, the veil is a special accessory we feel is worth considering–especially with such a large variety of styles to choose from!
Sparking Our Interest
We couldn’t resist the images of Kate Leverenz Photography in capturing this Texas wedding. The bride’s ceremonial, cathedral length veil creates such an aura of sweet simplicity, but we love her shift to a modern hairpiece for the reception.
With the various selections in cut, corners, shape, texture, layers and length, there are too many veils to name! We’ve narrowed down the selection to a few of our favorites based on the setting of your event.
Classy Cathedral: These timeless veils are ideal for formal, church weddings and work best with fuller wedding gowns. Depending on the length of the dress train, it may be wise to select a chapel-length veil instead: they are a bit shorter and more casual.

En-caged: This chic, vintage veil has grown tremendously in the past few years. Perfect for an outdoor ceremony, birdcage veils are lightweight, low hassle and make an excellent frame around the face.

Shoulder-to-Shoulder: If you can’t quite commit to the full-length veils, you’re in luck! Unlike a birdcage, a shoulder-length veil offers the best of both worlds; it gives the groom a chance to lift your veil in the traditional practice, and it won’t weigh you down!

Flower Power: Searching for something a bit beyond the conventional veil? Perhaps a hair ornament or floral accessory is right for you! These modern touches are ideal for an informal wedding, providing the perfect feminine detail to spice up any hair style without a fuss.

Mix and Match: Maybe you’ve noticed several styles you fancy, and you aren’t quite sure how to narrow down the options. Not to worry! Many brides embrace multiple veil styles throughout their big day–some even wear two at once!
