Are you considering wearing a veil on your wedding day?
As a young girl, I would rehearse my wedding by wearing a towel or a long piece of fabric as my veil. My aisle was the hallway and my groom was Troy Donahue. It was fun to imagine walking down the aisle in a beautiful lace gown with a long veil. As a matter of fact, last year I bought a lace wedding dress and cathedral length veil at a garage sale for $15. Even though it is too small for me it is in my closet in a garment bag.
According to the staff at Kleinfeld’s in NYC and Bridals by Lori in Atlanta, adding a veil instantly adds romance and elegance. They suggest while you are wedding dress shopping, go ahead add a veil even if you think you do not need or want one. There are many styles and lengths to choose from.
Veil length options are:
• Bird Cage Wedding Veil: 4-9″
• Blusher Wedding Veil: 30″
• Shoulder-Length Wedding Veil: 20-22″
• Elbow Wedding Veil: 32″
• Fingertip Wedding Veil: 38-40″
• Knee-Length Veil: 48″
• Waltz Wedding Veil: 60″
• Floor-Length Wedding Veil: 72″
• Cathedral Veil: 120”
• Royal Veil is more than 120”
