Choose what veil you want to wear at your 2016 wedding, NUMBER 3!


When choosing a wedding dress, it is necessary to bear in mind the attention to details like makeup, hairstyle and of course accessories like veil headdresses.

Choosing the right veil is as important as the dress itself, and must be chosen carefully and it is necessary to follow some simple tricks. It is essential to take into account the style of your dress, because if it is very modern, it is best to wear a headdress or veil with a short design and length. The classic veil with lace and embroidery works best for traditional Church brides. It is important to remember that if you are petite you avoid the long veils, this type is generally better suited to taller women.

You should always consider the type of hairstyle you will wear, if you have a short veil then it is easier to have an elaborate hairstyle, whilst if you have a medium or long length veil then a more natural hairstyle lends itself well.

Carolina Herrera uses typical elbow veils and sometimes veils that are usually more elegant and classic with lace details. Meanwhile Naeem Khan plays with different models, depending on the design that will complement, and even includes a wedding dress with trousers to which is added an elegant waterfall style veil, giving an even more edgy look.

Peter Copping for his first collection with Oscar de la Renta, use floral headdresses with veils, to give a more modern feel thanks to the wreaths. Marco & Mary, YolanCris and Cymbeline is descantan by cathedral veils even though usually more uncomfortable to wear, are more showy being longer than the bride dress unlike the chapel veils that are the same length dress.
