Tips on choosing the right Veil

Before shopping for a wedding veil it is essential to know whether you actually need it or not.

The beauty and need of a veil depends very much on the shape of the face of the person who would be wearing it. For instance, your shape could be either Oval or Round or Oblong or Heart or Diamond or Square and even Rectangle and Triangle. While the first four shapes are soft and curved, the last four have more angular cuts. Remember that not every face shape needs a veil to highlight it.

When looking for the perfect veil at the bridal shop, remember that “opposites attract”. For example, if you have a round, full face you can wear a veil that falls along the sides of the face to make your face look narrow.

Choose the length of the veil after deciding how long you plan on wearing it. If you want to wear it for the ceremony only you can choose a veil with long trails. But if you want to wear your veil until the party’s over, go for a shorter veil.

In case carrying a wedding gown around is not feasible for you can carry a photograph of your wedding gown along with you to show it to the shop.

To determine your face shape, pull your hair away from your face and study the outer edge to come to a conclusion.

Still unsure? Ask your family members or friends to know about the shape of your face.

Before purchasing the veil try the veil and check yourself in front of a full-length mirror to ensure that the proportions are right.

Examine the veil from all angles as one that might suit you from the back might not look that flattering from the front.
