Veils


I love wedding veils. Once a bride has chosen a gown in our boutique, I have lots of fun showing her different veil choices to compliment the gown. And, of course, each bride's personality and fashion style plays into the choice, too.

This week, we received some gorgeous new veils from designer Jennifer Leigh. Jennifer knows veils and knows bridal trends. She has beautiful veils in her collection, and she will also custom-design a veil for you.

Another thing Jennifer does is heirloom work. For example, if you want to wear your Mom's veil, but you want it to work with your new gown, we can send the veil to Jennifer, confer with her, and you will receive Mom's veil re-designed for you. Don't worry, if they veil has yellowed, discolored, or stained over time, we can restore that for you, too!

I am posting a chart about veil lengths. (sorry it's not larger; but it falls apart at the bigger size) I encourage you to try several different lengths when choosing a veil. A different veil can make a gown look more or less formal. There are so many options! Have fun.

September's Bride... a fresh approach to formal.

Ooh, that is amazing--I wish I would have spent a little more money on my veil! Mine was fine, but in retrospect, I should have tried on a bunch of different ones.

That's awesome that you do re-working. I've only seen one reworked and it looked so STRANGE on the bride--she def. could have used you for this :)
