The Perfect Wedding Veil

The Perfect Wedding Veil Have you found the perfect wedding veil for your wedding gown? Many brides choose a veil as an afterthought to her wedding dress. But looking for a wedding veil while you shop for your gown makes a lot of sense. As you shop for wedding gowns, speak with a Bianca bridal consultant about a coordinating veil as well. The wedding veil may finish off the gown and help you in your dress selection.

Consider how you will wear your hair before you purchase your wedding veil and headpiece. Be sure the headpiece works well with your hairstyle plans. Will you wear your wedding veil on top or on the back of your head? Where you will wear it on your wedding day. Where you wear it will affect the length of the veil. And remember, the length of your veil should not end right at a focal point of your wedding gown. It should come to just above or just below the focal point.
