Everything You Need to Know About Wedding Veils

By Hollee Actman Becker for TheKnot.com

You've finally found a gown, but before you can breathe a huge sigh of relief, kick back and relax until your wedding day, you've got to find the final touch that will complete your transformation from basic to bride. It all comes down to choosing the right veil. Think the waltz is just a dance step? The chapel only a place to say your vows? Could it really be that easy? Check our glossary to find out.

Pouf
A gathered piece of tulle or netting that fastens to a comb or headpiece to create height for the veil.

Blusher
A short, single layer of veiling, the blusher is worn over the face before the ceremony, then either flipped over the head or removed thereafter.

Chapel
A formal veil that extends to the floor, the chapel falls two-and-a-half yards from the headpiece. It's often worn in combination with a sweep train and blusher for extra oomph.

Flyaway
A multi-layered veil that just brushes the shoulders. Considered less formal than other styles.


Cathedral
The mother of all veils, the cathedral is also the most formal. Sometimes referred to as the "royal veil," this style falls three-and-a-half yards from the headpiece.

Finger Tip
A very popular length, particularly with ball gowns, this style extends to -- you guessed it -- the fingertips.


Double Tier
A veil of two layers (either two veils or a veil and a blusher), usually of different lengths.

Flyaway
A multi-layered veil that just brushes the shoulders. Considered less formal than other styles.

Elbow
As the name implies, this type of veiling extends 25 inches in length to the bride's elbows.

Fountain
This veil is gathered at the crown of the head to create a cascading effect around the face. Usually of shoulder- or elbow-length.

Mantilla
A long, Spanish-style circular piece of lace that frames the face. Made either of lace or lace-edged tulle, the mantilla is usually secured with a comb.

Waltz (also known as Ballet)
A veil length that falls somewhere between the knee and the ankle.

Birdcage
Also known as a cage veil, Birdcage veils are typically a 9" piece of netting that drapes off the side of the head, which allows your lips to by free.

Thank you for this information about wedding veils. Brides most likely know that the veil they choose should fit the wedding dress they have chosen. But most of them don't probably know that there are so many types and styles of wedding veils. You are right in that a wedding dress is not complete if it does not come with the right style of veil. It is good to be guided with the right information. A modern day wedding dress will not probably go well with a veil that extends through the floor and more. It is best to choose a veil that will complement the wedding dress, rather than insist on the style that you've been dreaming for a while.

Nothing I would know about wedding veils nor I want to know about it, though I just want it to refer it to my some university friends maybe they'll take some advantage from this blog..

Weddings can probably be that most special occasion that can happen in a person's life. This is when you marry the love of your life. But it can never be easy as that. You will have top face conflicts and tremendous workloads just to make this happen. Numerous meetings, countless shoppings for the items that you will need, and the hard choices that you have to make for which is which. But beyond all these workloads, a wonderful price will be waiting for you walk down the aisle or waiting for you at the altar.
