I am finally kicking off a little information series requested by a lovely Dottie. It’s all about veils, the lengths, the styles, what operates and what doesn’t. I would adore to hear what veil you’re wearing or if you’re wearing 1 at all!
Beginning off with my present favourite, the drop veil. Produced popular by Grace Kelly and far more recently Kate Middleton, the drop veil looks like it was softly dropped on your head. Utilizing only one layer of tulle, the veil is normally made without a comb, though the veil could be secured with hair pins or a hat pin and the veil can be cut to any length (but is typically at least elbow length).
The drop veil can suit brides who don’t want a “poofy” veil and would rather a easy whisper of a veil. It also suits far more elaborate gowns as it’s not “competing” with the design of your gown.
Drop veils can be worn with an up or down hairstyle, tiaras, hair flowers or jewels. They lend themselves to a slightly classic, vintage look but can also look gorgeous with a contemporary gown.
