Choosing your veil
STANDARD LENGTHS - All veils are available in the following standard lengths (2 tier veils include approx. 27” blusher):
Shoulder aka 45" (23" actual length) - works well with '50s/60s style dresses especially with extra bouffant gather.
Waist aka 54" (28" actual length) - compliments most dresses but be careful of edging if your dress has waist level detail at the back.
Fingertip aka 72" (45" actual length) - a versatile length, particularly good with narrow dresses. Not flattering for dresses that flare from the hip.
Waltz/ballet/calf aka 90" (63" actual length) - can be a tricky length to wear, especially for tall brides. Good for petite brides looking for a floor length veil without a train though.
Floor aka 108" (actual length 81") - depending on your height this length can brush the floor or cover a small puddle train.
Chapel aka 126" (99" actual length) - works with nearly all dresses and is surprisingly lengthening so don't rule it out if you are not the tallest of brides!
Cathedral aka 144" (117" actual length) - the ultimate statement veil. Great for creating the wow factor but do check that it will fit in your venue.
CUSTOM LENGTHS - All veils are custom-made to order and so can be made to any finished length if you feel you would like a length somewhere in between the standard ones.
GATHERING & TIERS
