Veils come in many styles and are usually chosen to accent particular facial features and or beautiful hairstyles. Veils and headpieces range from combs, bands, hats or tiaras. The style, in which you will wear your hair on the day of the wedding, will help you in determining the type of headpiece or veil to consider.

The veil should give a crowning look to your overall appearance, working to fully compliment the gown style you have chosen. Many styles are available for purchase in bridal boutiques however, many brides will still choose to have their veil custom made or altered to suit their personal preference. The veil as well as the gown will become a very sentimental treasure that may some day be passed on to a daughter, close relative or friend.

For this reason, having a say in their designs is one that is considered important for it’s uniqueness to some brides. Importantly though, be sure that the veil or headpiece you choose does not take over or hide your head. Size and style of certain headpieces are best suited for different people. What suits you may not suit another. When shopping for headpieces, it is suggested that you take a second person along with you, to help you determine what style is best suited for you in look, style and presentation.

  • A simple headpiece or veil goes best with an elaborate gown.
  • A detailed headpiece or veil goes best with a classic style dress.
  • Find out weather your religion requires you to wear a veil that covers your face, this is called a blusher.
  • When shopping for veils, consider wearing your hair the way you plan to for the day of your wedding. This will provide you with a better idea of how the veil will work to frame your facial features and stand out with your hairstyle.
  • Most ready-made headpieces can be altered or changed if a slight change is needed.
  • Custom headpieces can be made especially for you, adding the details and length that you desire.
  • Most pieces are made to sit on the crown of your head, keep this in mind when trying them on.
