Should I Wear A Veil On My Wedding Day?

Few things in life are once in lifetime opportunities, wearing a veil on your wedding day is one of them. Today’s bride is embracing the tradition of wearing a veil in new and modern ways, today we’re sharing some of our favorite veiled looks.

Topping the charts among our faves is the “Drop Wedding Veil” secured with an illusion comb at the crown of the head or just below this style of veil appears to be almost weightless as it gently floats over your hair and face. 

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.

Perhaps the most versatile when it comes to choices of placement for your veil is the Chignon and updos (high or low).  Depending on how much you want to accent your wedding day hairstyle from the back you have options to go over or under with your veil placement.  To really add a 360 degree highlight to your hair style opt for placement to the underside of your bun, twist or knot. 

Femme fatale curls 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 a head band to your style for the day.  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.

We leave you today with the classic birdcage veil, typically it easily clips into the hair making it a fantastic option for shorter styles with pure hollywood glam.
