Bride Wearing Veil

Choosing the Perfect Wedding Veil

At Amore Collective Sydney, our goal is to create a stress-free styling experience for all our brides. We guide you through the process of choosing the perfect bridal veil that suits your style and adds a touch of elegance to your wedding attire.

1. Consider Your Wedding Dress

Before diving into the world of bridal veils, it's crucial to consider your wedding dress. Your veil should complement your gown, not compete with it. Keep these key points in mind:

  • Dress Style: If your wedding dress is ornate with intricate details and embellishments, opt for a simpler veil. Conversely, if your dress is minimalist, you have more freedom to choose a veil with embellishments and lace.
  • Dress Length: Match the length of your veil to your dress. A cathedral-length veil pairs beautifully with a long train.

2. Choose the Length

Bridal veils come in various lengths, each offering a unique look and feel. Here are some popular options:

  • Cathedral Length: Dramatic and elegant, these veils extend beyond the train of your gown, creating a stunning effect as you walk down the aisle.
  • Chapel Length: This versatile length falls to the floor and adds an aura of sophistication without being too extravagant.
  • Fingertip Length: A common choice, this veil reaches your fingertips when your arms are extended. It's flattering for most dress styles and body types.
  • Shoulder Length: Ideal for simpler dresses and a more casual wedding, this veil falls to your shoulders, adding a touch of charm.

3. Veil Styles

Consider the style that resonates with your personality and complements your dress:

  • Pearl Veil: The pearl veil adds timeless elegance and delicate charm to any bridal ensemble.

  • Mantilla Veil: A circular veil with lace or intricate embroidery along the edges, the mantilla veil exudes a romantic and timeless appeal.

  • Plain Double Layer: Simple yet elegant, this veil consists of two layers of tulle, providing a classic look that complements any dress style.

  • Rhinestone: For a touch of sparkle, the rhinestone is adorned with shimmering stones that catch the light beautifully.

4. Embellishments

Veils can be adorned with various embellishments such as lace, pearls, crystals, or embroidery. These details can add a personal touch and match your dress or theme.

5. Consider Your Hairstyle

Your hairstyle should complement your veil choice. Discuss with your hairstylist to ensure a seamless integration of your veil into your chosen hairdo.

6. Wedding Veil Accessories

Don't forget about accessories like veil clips, combs, or tiaras to secure your veil in place and add extra flair.


Selecting the perfect wedding veil is an exciting part of wedding planning. Take your time to consider your dress, length, style, and any embellishments you desire. By doing so, you'll find a veil that not only complements your wedding attire but also adds an unforgettable touch of elegance to your special day.
