Erica Koesler Veil with Sequin Edge $224.95
Even for non-traditional brides, wedding veils can be dramatic, modern, simple or elegant. A veil frames your face, adds a romantic touch and many styles drape beautifully over the shoulders – but it should not distract from the gown or you, the bride.
Today, Advantage Bridal features its Erica Koesler bridal veils, a collection of intricately embellished, made to order veils for every bride. Whether you want a short veil or long veil, minimal or ornate, this line is sure to have you thinking twice about wearing a veil.
There are so many different styles to choose from that with a little effort and some inspiration, you can put together the perfect bridal hairdo to fit the veil of your choice.
Short veils can be attached to a bridal hat, comb, fascinator or other lovely headpiece; some barely hit the shoulder, although most are above the chin. Cage veils are still popular and take many shapes; some frame only the eyes, while others go to the chin. Attach some gorgeous netting to a beautiful hair accessory and, voilà, you have a fascinator veil. Flyaways or poufs are typically a multi-layer tulle veil with cut edges and lots of body at the crown.
An elbow length veil just passes the shoulders and frames the face without being too fussy, as they’re often worn in casual affairs, day weddings or outdoor ceremonies. The edges can be adorned with lace, beads, sequins, ribbon or the entire veil can be made of lace. Some mantilla veils, which drape over the head and are popular in Spain, come only to the elbows.
Fingertip veils hang to the hands with the arms down and are a fancier version of shorter options, but perhaps not as dramatic as longer veils. Elegant evening weddings and indoor ceremonies are perfect for this type of veil.
The waltz veil falls between the knees and ankles for “the best of both worlds,” with a formal touch that allows the bride to walk and dance comfortable without stepping on it. Also perfect to wear with gowns that don’t have a train.
Chapel length veils extend to the floor and up to three feet past the hem of the bridal gown, creating a romantic look that works for formal weddings. This look works in any setting with the romantic bridal style.
A cathedral veil falls beyond the hem of the dress for a dramatic look and are common for formal, religious and large venue weddings. As with a train, these long veils require help from someone in the bridal party to drape the fabric and make sure it falls correctly. For outdoor weddings, wind and dirt can be a factor, so you may want to consider something shorter.
Of course, brides can add a blusher to wear during the ceremony that gets flipped back before the vows. Shop AdvantageBridal.com for affordable veils, rhinestone tiaras, bridal headpieces and other accessories to complete your look.
