The veil experts at Nilah & Company reveal how to choose a design that’s just right for you…
What style of wedding are you having?
Are you getting married outdoors in the countryside, do you dream of a grand wedding like Duchess Kate, or will it be a relaxed destination wedding? Consider your venue and the time of year, and decide what type of veil will be most appropriate.
What’s your personal style?
If you’re a fun and flirty type, a shorter veil will suit you and your style. For more simple or traditional tastes, a veil with a plainer edge or a delicate lace would be beautiful. If you like drama and bling, then a cathedral veil with dramatic lace and crystals will certainly make a statement when you walk down the aisle.
How to wear it
The veil should be worn at the crown of your head so that you can see the beauty and the shape of the veil you’ve selected, and so everyone can see your face glowing as you say “I Do” to your Prince Charming.
Birdcage-style veils should be worn across the bridge of your nose so you are kissable and able to eat without having to remove the veil.
If you have thin or fine hair and are worried about the veil staying in and not slipping, just add a few extra spritzes of hairspray to the crown of your head before placing on the veil. This will help in keeping the veil from sliding down.
Metal vs plastic combs
We like to recommend metal combs as these to feel a lot more secure in your hair than the plastic combs. Plus, the metal combs won’t break like the plastic ones can.
