Choosing the perfect wedding veil to accompany your dream dress holds just as much importance as choosing the right shoes, bridal train or jewelry. Wedding dress veils add the finishing touch to your bridal ensemble, so do not think to ignore them! Wedding veils come in a variety of different lengths and sizes, depending on how dramatic or subtle you want your look to be. A bride can opt for a blusher, cathedral length veil to create a vintage, glamorous vibe, or one can choose a chapel length veil for a more subtle and traditional aesthetic. The choice is entirely yours, and how you would like to complete your overall wedding day style. Today, we will share with you some of the most popular wedding veil lengths and some styles from our veil collection.
The first veil length we would love to introduce is the shortest style in this guide; the elbow length veil. As the name implies, the veil should delicately fall down to just below the bride's elbow. An elbow length veil is a popular choice, especially amongst other modern and contemporary style veils. By opting for a shorter veil, the wearer is able to move easily when dancing the night away, or gliding down the aisle; it won't easily obstruct or get in the way, perfect! This length veil is also incredibly versatile, as this design can complement a traditional, classic style ensemble, and similarly look fabulous paired with an alternative gown! Our ethereal Danelle elbow length veil is an elegant two-tiered design, featuring floral lace trim around the edges. This gorgeous veil is fitted with a blusher, creating the perfect vintage glam look.
Our next style is the dainty and whimsical fingertip length veil. This design is slightly longer than the elbow length veil, as it cascades down past the waist to the middle of your thigh. This length is also extremely sought-after, as it allows the bride to move freely, while still creating a dramatic and layered aesthetic. It is easy to see why this length is very popular! Our fabulous Roseta fingertip veil utterly defines romance and style. Constructed from twinkling crystals and shimmering soft tulle, any bride is sure to gleam brighter than ever on their big day with Roseta. Fingertip veils look particularly dashing paired with trumpet and sheath gowns! We love a fit-n-flare look adorned with a glamorous fingertip veil!
Our next captivating veil length is the exquisite waltz length veil, also known as ballet length. This veil is essentially the longest veil a bride can attain without it touching the floor. Waltz length veils are around five feet long, gracefully falling down past the knee, above the wearer's ankle. This style is a desirable option for brides lusting over a long veil length without the hassles or troubles! We are in awe at our Novah sequin veil in the lovely waltz length. Novah is made with soft sequin lace tulle, ensuring the most luxurious and elegant texture. This bridal veil falls down softly and elegantly, which would perfectly accent a wedding gown with a decorative, detailed train.
The next veil length is sure to wow your guests on your big day, as it extends down past your feet, draping along the floor, or sweeping along the floor. It is our majestic sweep length veil. This style measures around 2M in length, allowing for a dramatic, gliding effect. As this length adds some extra volume to your ensemble, the sweep length veil will look fabulous for a formal themed wedding. We cannot get enough of our Dione drop veil with blusher in sweep length. Dione is sure to make an elegant statement and is utterly glamorous with two layers of soft tulle. Delicate lace trim adorns the bottom of the veil, creating a waterfall of luxury. Truly breathtaking and angelic!
The fabulously stunning and romantic chapel length veil will capture most bride's hearts if they desire a fairytale aesthetic for their magical day. A chapel length extends even longer than a sweep veil, reaching to around 2.2M. This style screams princess and regal vibes, as it trails behind the wearer for the ultimate grand entrance. Our one layer Cassia lace veil looks utterly captivating in chapel length. A dainty and delicate lace trim adds a charming and alluring touch, and will look exquisite paired with an A-line or sheath silhouette!
Our final veil length we will share with you today is most certainly a show-stopper; the cathedral length veil. This style is undoubtedly grandeur, as it extends beyond the gown's train, and trails for as long as 108-120 inches. This style's design is extremely sensational and dramatic, and will definitely create an extravagant entrance. Traditionally, this veil length is chosen for ceremonies taking place in a chapel or cathedral, as these buildings often have large aisles and big, open spaces suited for lengthy ensembles. Cathedral veils are classically formal and regal looking, thus, will pair perfectly with an equally lavish and elaborate gown, such as a vintage silk dress, or satin, lace ensemble. We can't get enough of how ostentatious our Meliza cathedral veil looks, boasting an old Hollywood glamor aesthetic. Delicate lace applique cascades down from the top down, decorated with intricate beading work that has been hand-applied. Fitted with a traditional blusher, our Meliza gown gives off an effortless, timeless vibe.
It is impossible for us to choose which veil length we love the most, as all designs and lengths radiate elegance and opulence. It is important to consider that your veil length should not overwhelm your bridal gown, as it is an accessory to complement your overall wedding look. However, it is your special day, and you should do what feels best!
