The right veil for your wedding gown

Choosing the right  veil has never been easy for some brides. As a general rule, if your wedding dress is heavily embellished, your veil should be clean and simple, with minimal  extras not only in embellishment but  also in price range. And vice versa: A simple, streamlined gown allows you to be a bit more adventurous in choosing your veil to suit your needs. 

Don't be afraid  to play around with unexpected shapes, accents and textures, like a floral embellished cathedral-length veil, a lace cap or a couture-inspired veil with over-the-top volume, or if you want to  go vintage, try a bird cage veil as well. Try to create a balance as well when it comes to the type of embellishments—while they don't  necessarily have to match the ones on your dress exactly, they should complement them in color, size and style.  For instance, a glamorous sequined veil, , would feel out of place next to a romantic gown embroidered with tiny pearls. Your veil should enhance your wedding gown.
