Blusher Veils

If you're dreaming of a big reveal during the ceremony, you'll want a blusher veil to conceal your face for your entrance and walk down the aisle. Pair this short veil with a longer veil worn down the back.

Mantilla Veils

The circular, Spanish-style mantilla veil features a thicker lace trim along its edge. Softly drape the veil over your head (a hidden comb holds it in place), and the embellished border will frame your face for the prettiest effect.

Wedding Veil Details

Colors

Veils come in a range of shades including white, ivory, champagne, and whisper pink. Match your wedding dress's color if you can, or go with the one that's closest. For gowns in soft tones like blue or blush, an ivory veil looks beautiful.

Embellishments

The trim or beading on your veil doesn't have to mimic your dress's details perfectly, but it's lovely when they complement each other: metallic embroidery or statement lace on both, for example.

Tiers

Single-tier and multi-tier options allow you to select the level of volume that's right for your look. You can also double up on veils to create a completely custom two-tier effect with exactly the drama you desire.

Style Tip:

Keep your dress's key features in mind when you're selecting your veil. Low-back style? An unembellished veil lets that detail show through. Simple dress? A crystal-trimmed veil brings a touch of opulence.
