Pairing Wedding Hairstyles and Veils

Complete your look with the perfectly paired veil

With so many styles and lengths to choose from selecting the right length and style to complement both your gown and your wedding day hairstyle might be a little bit confusing.   Generally speaking a veil on your wedding day is timeless, classic and will definitely make your day photos wall worthy for generations to come.

Wedding veils and hair styles are as unique as each bride.   A veil adds romance, femininity, depth, dramatic lines, and fabulous focal points for your wedding day photos.

When choosing your veil you’ll definitely want to consider your style.  Longer and heavier veils may need a more supportive hairstyle such as an up-do, a braided style that is half up/half down.

Where to place your veil

Bridal veils frame your overall look.  When considering your veil style and your hairstyle you’ll need to think about the placement of your veil.  Traditional veil styles such as the elbow length, fingertip, chapel and cathedral styles are typically attached at the back of the head with a comb, bobby pins can be added for a little extra security depending on your hair type, style, and length.

Do you have long hair goals for your wedding day look?

Long curls will also pair perfectly with your veil for a stunning and romantic look.  The trick to giving this look stay put power is adding a few extensions or accentuating the veil with another accessory like a floral crown, tiara or a head band.  This gives the veil something to grab onto eliminating the need for extra bobby pins to  keep it from slip sliding away.   Bonus factor, the added extensions will give your locks that little bit of extra va va voom in volume.
