For most brides, the wedding veil is still necessary for her big day, but how to choose the wedding veils which can flatter you and also your wedding gown? If you have no idea, the below guidelines will help you pick out the right wedding veil which can work for you and your dress.
You should know if you really need the veil? In many cultures, the lifting of the wedding veil symbolized the groom taking possession of the wife, either as lover or as property, or the revelation of the bride to the groom by her parents for approval.
Choose your dress first and then accessories with a veil, not the other way round. The dress is the main attraction and the veil is there to complement the dress, not distract from it. It is difficult to find a dress to match a veil but is much easier to find a veil that matches a dress. So don't set your heart on a veil before you have found the dress of your dreams.
Choose the right style, plain or patterned? If your dress is very intricate you will want a plain veil. Likewise if you have a plain dress then a decorated veil can accessories the dress easily. Most shops have a good selection of veils as they are still very common for brides. Try veils on with your dress and make sure they feel right AND complement your overall look.
