To Veil or not to Veil?

Hello! This is my first blog post, so I can’t sit here and say writing comes naturally to me, but I do however have a lot of knowledge and experience with wedding veils!

In my opinion (slightly biased of course!) A veil takes your beautiful white dress into an extraordinary wedding outfit. The wedding veil is no longer just a tradition, it is a beautiful accessory that can be as subtle or as extravagant as possible, and shows off your unique style. After all, you only get one chance to wear a veil - so if not on your wedding day, then when?

I get a lot of questions about whether having a veil takes the focus away from your dress. My answer is simply - If there is lots of embellishment on the back of your wedding dress, then a 'barely there' single tier veil is the perfect solution - You still have the wow factor from the veil, but nothing is distracting away from the details.

On a windy day, a cathedral/church length veil can be quite hard to handle, they do however make for some wow factor, dramatic photos!

As we all know getting married in Britain means you can’t rely on the weather, so this does mean that a veil that trains along the ground isn’t going to stay perfect and white - especially on those rainy days in true ‘About Time’ style. This is when shorter fingertip style veils come into their own.

Veils create that romance and drama as you walk down the aisle.

They are even more beautiful when pictured in your photos.

Veils can be passed down through generations, becoming a special ‘something old’ family heirloom one day.

Having a bespoke veil / bringing your own vision to life, means your outfit will always be different from the next. Initials or the date of your wedding embroidered onto your veil is something that will always be unique and special to you, something to cherish forever.

The debate of whether or not to wear a wedding veil for your big day is something I am sure you have discussed or thought about in the planning stage of your wedding. The truth is there is no right or wrong answer, its your day so you can be unconditionally and unapologetically you.
