The latest veil trends
I want a long, dramatic veil for my upcoming wedding. What designers/styles should I look for?
"There are many types of veils available, so start by considering what style will suit your dress. Do you want a dramatic opulent look or something more soft and delicate? A popular option is the single-tier lace-edged veil, which is one piece, with lace along the wide edge and gathered into a hair comb at the top. Similar to the Spanish mantilla veil, a single-tier veil without lace edging will suit most face shapes. Of course, single-tier long veils can also be exquisitely decorated with other details, such as satin, pearls, beading, embroidery or horsehair braid.
"Another timeless and romantic style is the voluminous two-tier veil. These are made with a comb which has been folded near the top to create a blusher (a veil that covers the bride’s face) which adds an air of mystery. You can keep the front blusher any length, and the second tier can be made as long as you want, which is the perfect choice for a luxurious bridal showstopper. This modern style can be decorated with pearl detailing, delicate embroidery, lace edging or sparkling tulle. Alternatively, a shimmering 3m wide long tulle veil can be a simply stunning yet understated choice for wedding dresses with special-shaped trains.
"At June Peony Bridal Couture, we have made lots of heavy and opulent detailed couture wedding veils to create unforgettable weddings. We’re also offering a free 30mins bespoke veil consultation for Your West Midlands Wedding readers with the Ref: YWMWB."
