Short Veils

Short veils are perfect for so many brides and even though I opted for the long cathedral veil, it does not stop me from yearning after the sweet and short ones! Perfect for both modern and vintage dresses, short veils complete the look of so many brides.

If you are in the UK, Lilly Bella is one of the leading supplier of birdcage veils and offers many different styles and variations so if you are considering one then definitely check out her website.

Cathedral Veils

I never thought that I would be a ‘veil girl’ and if I did have one then it would be a short simple one. Well, all that changed when I started trying dresses on…the long veil always seemed to ‘complete’ the dress I was wearing. I sweated it out for a bit (they do not come cheap) but alas, my love was cemented when I saw the bottom right picture. Bam, cathedral lace edged veil it had to be!

If you’re in turmoil on the long-vs-short veil I am sure that this collection of images will help; who doesn’t want to stand in a field and let 2 1/2 metres of delicious tulle swoosh behind you? I know I do!
