Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Veil
A wedding veil is an iconic wedding accessory that a bride can get in many different styles, colours, and lengths. You can choose from short, medium, or long and have the option of choosing beaded, lace, or any other number of choices. At When Freddie met Lilly, the veils come in every style under the rainbow with exquisite lace and beadwork that will suit any blushing bride to a tee. With that being said, make sure that you check out the Brisbane designer’s site to look at the many choices today. Now, read on below for some tips to help you choose the right wedding veil to complement your wedding gown.
Find the Right Length for Your Wedding Veil
To find the right veil to match your wedding dress, you first need to consider the length of the wedding veil. It is best to try out a variety of different options, when you go for your first fitting. Twirl around, try on different lengths, and ask the advice of the professionals at When Freddie met Lilly. Short veils, like our Catherine Veil tend to give you a more informal edge to your look, while longer wedding veils, for example our Donna Veil with Waterlilly french lace, are more traditional and formal looking.
Match the Colour to Your Gown
Your veil should always match the color of your gown. For example, if you choose the navy dresses, then you will want to choose a navy wedding veil to match. It is also possible to dye your veil to match your gown, so make sure that you bring a swatch of your wedding gown with you when you are shopping for the veil, to be sure that it’s a perfect match.
Think of Your Hair Style
When striving to choose the right wedding veil, the bride needs to think about her hairstyle before making any firm decisions. For example, a halo veil is best suited for a bride who is wearing her hair long and flowing, while a birdcage is more versatile and can be worn with just about any style. Make sure to take your new veil with you for your trial hair appointment, so that you and your stylist can make adjustments together. No one wants a hair surprise on her big day!
Think of Your Rear View
If you have a ton of embellishments on the back of your wedding gown, then you don’t want to hide them under your long veil. Think of choosing a shorter wedding veil or one that is sheer, so that you can show off the gorgeous work on the back of your gown as well as the elegant veil you chose to go with it.
Making sure that you choose the right veil for your wedding gown is as important as the flowers that adorn the altar. From thinking of your rear view to choosing short or long, choosing the best wedding veil for your perfect day will be easy when you follow these tips. The Brisbane designers at When Freddie met Lilly are standing by to help you make your dream come true in any way they can.
