The veiled truth – how to choose the perfect wedding veil

Choosing the right veil for your wedding can be tricky. The days of only having to choose between a handful of veil-lengths, based on the venue you choose, are long gone.

Now, brides are choosing their wedding veil based on their personality and dress style. Short dresses just scream for short veils or blushers. Long, traditional-style dresses look great with just about any style. Details such as pops of color, gorgeous mantilla lace details and embellishments are all sweet additions.

David’s Bridal has a great resource on veils – if you’re not sure of the right kind for your dress-style, or just want to learn a little before you decide, they offer a pretty solid description of styles and a riduculous selection of styles.

And, OMG, I had NO idea that they have combs and hairflowers – to wear alone or accent your veil (or, as many brides do, swap with the veil after heading down the aisle).

My favorite piece? A sweet Russian netting birdcage veil with a feather-flower embellishment (H7546). So lovely!

Blue Bridesmaid Dresses

Blue is a perennial favorite – it can be warmed with gold tones in the winter, or a crisp, preppy navy in the midst of an east coast clambake wedding.

While I adore Priscilla of Boston & Vera Wang’s collections, sometimes, it’s fun to find something a bit out of the ordinary.

Here are a few of my favorite blue bridesmaid dresses (or they could even be wedding guest dresses).
