The Shape and Cut
- The traditional cut veil – The traditional cut for all of our standard wedding veils is in the shape of a U. It is gathered up at the top and forms a U shape along the bottom and sides. This is the most traditional and our most popular cut, hence it’s name. All of our standard line veils by default have this cut. Any detail such as embroidery or embellishment is on the side and bottom of the veil. This veil may be attached by a comb,barrette or Velcro.
- The semi circle Veil – The semi circle cut is a circle that has been folded in half and gathered on the fold of the circle creating a double layer effect. It is a variation of the standard cut and is similar in style except it has two layers. It is especially pretty when it embellished with embroidery. The top layer of the semi circle may be folded over the head and used as a blusher if so desired. Any detail such as embroidery or embellishment is on the side and bottom of the veil. This veil may be attached by a comb if specified or will come with Velcro if one of our headpieces is ordered with. It is not possible to use a barrette as an attachment.
- The sweep cut Veil – The sweep cut has less gathering and poof at the top of the head. It is in the shape of an A. It flares out has more fullness and drape to it. Any detail such as embroidery or embellishment is on the bottom of the veil only. The sweep cut may be attache by comb,barrette or Velcro.

A custom veil of course can be made in any degree of fullness as specified.
Choice of attachments include: barrette, comb or Velcro. (barrette not available for blusher)
Advice:If you are going to wear a chapel or cathedral bridal veil during the wedding ceremony, consider also adding an additional shorter veil such as a fingertip or waist length veil. Reason being you can change veils for the reception after walking down the aisle at your ceremony and after all your pictures are taken. Yet still feel well dressed. It also will be less cumbersome later when you are dancing.
