CUSTOM VEIL DESIGN GUIDE | Details we will need to know about your custom veil

Veils come in many different styles, lengths and designs!

  • Birdcage: Known as a “vintage” style veil and typically covers a small portion of the face made In “birdcage” type tulle with larger holes.
  • 1 layer length veils: made to any desired length you can imagine.: 2 layer length veils: the shorter layer is referred to as a blusher.
  • Two-Tier: 2 layer veil has a shorter layer called the blusher and then a longer layer underneath the blusher layer.
  • Drop Style Veil: Is a technique where the veil is cut in a large circle, but is technically all one layer and the comb sits in the middle of the veil. This technique is done most when the client wants the veil to cover their face.
  • Fingertip: Short tulle veils sometimes plain and sometimes with details reaching fingertip length.
  • Chapel Length Veils: Chapel length veils fall right to the ground or a couple of inches beyond the wedding dress, barely sweeping the floor.
  • Cathedral Length Veils: Similar to the long aisle of a cathedral church and where this veil got it’s name, a cathedral veil leaves a train trailing way beyond the length of the bridal dress. You typically want this length to be longer than the dress train.
  • Royal Length Veils: Royal length is exactly how it sounds; Royal! This is the longest length that will be sure to give you the most dramatic entrance you hope for!
  • Mantilla Style Veils: The mantilla veil frames the face in lace and is typically worn two inches from the hairline at the top of the head. Referred to as a Spanish style veil. They come in a variety of widths and lengths and are definitely statement pieces creating a sensual yet sophisticated vibe for the wedding day.

custom made wedding veil for berta wedding dressI was beyond thrilled with my custom veil. I bought a Berta wedding dress that unfortunately does not come with a matching veil. I was able to purchase 1 yard of lace and was lucky to find A.Cherie Couture. She was not only able to create a beautiful, and one of a kind veil for me but did so quickly and the quality was more than I hoped for. I’m in love with my veil… recommend to anyone who wants a custom veil!!!!
