The wedding veil is quite literally the crowning accessory of the bride. As traditions around the veil modernize, brides can select delicate fingertip veils, epic cathedral veils, and ever length and style in between.
The most common wedding veil varieties include:
● Fingertip length: Traditionally tiered veil that extends as low as the bride’s hips
● Waltz, or walking, length: Can hang as low as the calves, but still allow movement during the reception.
● Chapel length: This variety hits the ground but only extends several inches behind the bride as she walks.
● Cathedral length: The longest veil option, this variety extends dramatically behind the bride as she comes down the aisle.
While purchasing a veil in the dress boutique can run several hundred dollars, you can find low-cost options on Amazon and independent designers. This affordable alternative allows flexibility to switch out a long veil for a shorter, more practical one for photos and the reception.
