Unveiling the Details About Veils
Veils are common accessories that can enhance the beauty of any style of wedding dress. You just have to make sure you match the correct type of veil with the dress you’ll be wearing. They don’t all work interchangeably.
This informative article over at ehow.com details nine styles of veils and explains which dress length each of them complements. Here are the first three entries:
Blusher veils are very short in length and made with only one layer of material. This style of veil is used to cover the face prior to the ceremony, and falls just below the chin. It can be worn with virtually any style of dress.
The chapel style is considered a formal type of veil and is made from two layers of material. The first layer extends 2 1/2 yards from the headpiece and is used to cover the face during the ceremony. The second layer extends to the floor and is worn behind the head at all times. The chapel veil is appropriate to wear with a formal gown that is floor-length.
Similar to the chapel veil, the cathedral veil is made up of two layers of material in two different lengths. The first layer is used to cover the face, and falls 3 1/2 yards from the head piece. The second layer of the cathedral veil extends to the floor. The cathedral veil is most appropriate if your gown is very formal and has a long train.
