Veils, tiaras and most headpieces are not readily available and must be special ordered like a gown. Generally, delivery time averages up to five months, depending on the manufacturer, so it is best to order early and avoid rush fees. bel aire french net face veil feather spray french net bel aire

Veils are usually available in a variety of colors to closely match the color of your gown including White, Diamond White, Ivory, Champagne, Light Gold, and Blush. Many gown designers also have veils specifically made to enhance their dresses. It is common for wedding dresses to have several colors, appear both dark and light and be varied due to beading. If you are in doubt about your veil color, the lighter hue is often the best choice. Remember to ask your consultant for professional recommendations and she will be happy to assist!

When choosing a veil, the length is an important consideration. If you’re looking for a chic, sophisticated look, then short birdcages, face veils and French nets may be of interest. Brides preferring a traditional veil will find a variety of lengths beginning with shoulder (30 inches), elbow (32 inches), fingertip (38 inches), knee (48 inches), waltz (55 inches), floor (68-72 inches) and cathedral veils (108 inches). scallop embroidered cathedral bel aire lace cathedral bel aireTraditional veil styles typically include an option for a second tier to cover the face as the bride walks down the aisle, commonly known as a blusher.
