How to Pick the Perfect Veil for your Bridal Gown

We get brides all the time that are not sure about what veil to wear on their wedding day. Most brides are choosing to not wear a veil and accessorize with a beaded headpiece or have some flower power with a flower crown. Did you know that the veil is actually the oldest part of the bridal ensemble? The veil dates back to the ancient world. Back then a veil was used for a different purpose that isn’t the case today. In the modern age, the veil is the finishing touch to a bridal look.

Want to know the trick into deciding which bridal gown is your dress? Ask your fashion consultant to play around with veils- cue the waterworks! We have TONS of gorgeous veils at our shop, plus we have new ones that we are obsessing over at the moment.


Essense- AVL2505cr


This veil is our go to veil! This gorgeous veil has elegant lace appliques with sequins sewed inside the floral lace. It frames a brides face beautifully and I am obsessed with this lace pattern on this veil. Floral lace veils are on trend right now. This bridal gown paired with this veil is just perfection. This bridal look is very bohemian and I love it.

BelAire- V7383

This BelAire veil is what we call the “snowflake veil.” It is a popular pick we choose when helping a bride find her veil. This veil always looks amazing on Martina Liana dresses, like this one in the photo. I always call this bridal gown the “Swan Lake” gown. So, I guess it is a match made in heaven for the “snowflake” and “Swan Lake” gown.

The Westwood Collection-D382

This dainty veil is so perfect for a lace dress! I am so in love with this veil not only because of its simplicity, but also for how it shapes a brides face. The lace appliques just adds the cherry on top for this bridal look and it even brings out the lace of the bridal gown.
