Where to wear your Wedding Veil!

There’s few opportunities in life to wear something as exquisite and elaborate as a wedding veil. While a veil may not be for every bride, I love how a veil can elevate your bridal look by framing your face, and elongating your silhouette.

Many brides ask me ‘Where do I wear the veil ?’ Here are my top tips on deciding how to style your veil for your wedding day.


FOR LOW TO MID UPDOS

Planning a low to mid set updo? There’s three spots you can position the veil:

  • At the crown to elongate your silhouette

  • Directly on top of your updo

  • Tucked below it.

It’s a personal preference and will depend on a number of factors including the neckline of your dress, the volume in your hairstyle, and your height.

If the neckline on your dress is quite high or you will be wearing sleeves, consider wearing your veil higher on the head to balance out the heaviness of the fabric on your dress.

I also find that positioning the veil below the bun works well when styled with a low or open back.







FOR HIGH SET UPDOS

A hair style set higher will add height and a focal point from behind to frame your shoulders and back.

If you’re thinking high messy deconstructed bun then position the veil:

  • Directly on top of your bun

  • Just below the bun

If you choose to position your veil above the bun, keep in mind that this will create more volume.


FOR HAIR DOWN AND HALF-UP HAIRSTYLES

Soft waves and a flowing romantic down style is very popular at the moment. Wear a beautiful curled down style with your wedding veil positioned at the crown to frame your jawline. This will ensure your hairstyle won’t get weighed down and will instead flow elegantly down your back.

For half-up hairstyles, secure your veil at the point in which your hair is pinned up. This will provide a strong foundation for your veil to stay in place, as well as a headpiece for the perfect finishing touch.
