The Beauty of Veil Veils are a popular wedding accessory although the popularity seems to be dwindling as of late. Well, we know there are veil-loving brides out there who would love to read this. Veils are beautiful pieces of fabric which brides wear over their heads and they come in various styles, each with its own uniquely designed tip. Several veil styles would be talked about – according to the veil’s length.

The birdcage veil, which is usually short, includes a short cover-up on the face – some which cover down to the eyes, the nose, even the entire face. It gives that vintage feel.


The flyaway veil is a delicate, multi-layered veil that falls over the shoulder at its longest and at its shortest, it falls behind the head. It is perfect for casual weddings and popular amongst brides with playful personalities. The elbow veil, which was popular in the 1950s, literally stops at or slightly above the elbow as it floats over the shoulder and along the upper arms.

The fingertip veil, as the name suggest ends somewhere around the fingertips, and it floats around the bride like a cape would. It was popular in the 1940s and 1950s. The waltz veil, or the ballet veil, usually ends between the calf and the ankle, and is worn with a double layer and a blusher up front. It is a dramatic and uniquely graceful veil which is not found in many bridal boutiques – but is found in ours. The sweep veil and the chapel veil are alike yet dissimilar – the sweep veil sweeps the ground lightly, while the chapel veil extends a few inches above the ground.


The cathedral veil is the longest, most royal, most formal, and most dramatic veil of all – the veil often attracts more attention than the dress and it is usually up to five yards longer than the gown. Lastly, the mantilla veil which originated from Spain infuses a distinctive feel into the bride and the wedding dress in San Diego as it is pinned to the crown of the head – it has been known to give its wearer a feminine look.

See, veils are perfect for a bridal dress and if you ever want your dress to be paired with the veil of your dreams, then look no further than Here Comes the Bride, a renowned bridal boutique in San Diego which has been making brides happy for over 30 years.
