Wedding Veils-Next Level Looks

Should you wear a veil on your wedding day?

While I always say, accessories are a personal preference, look at the movement you get in your photos from such an elegant long flowing veil.


⁠Few things in life are once in lifetime opportunities, wearing a veil on your wedding day is one of them.

So much goes into the planning and construction of your hair style.   Such as consideration of where we will place the veil and how to take it in and out for options throughout your day without disrupting your style.

When we were working with Paige on her wedding day look, we just knew that beach waves were in order but we also incorporated a pulled apart braid for that boho feel that still was able to mirror her classic look.⁠ 

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.

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.

No matter the style or the length of your hair a veil will add drama, romance and depth to your complete look for your most beautiful day.
