How Your Veil Talks Much About You

Many brides make the mistake of assuming that choosing the veil is an easy task, and that almost anything goes. When they actually get down to choosing one however they realise that it isn’t as simple as they think.

Just like your wedding gown, shoes and jewellery, your veil is an equally important accessory. It can create an impact and make a difference in your appearance. Donning the right veil will highlight your gown and make you look absolutely ravishing. On the other hand, choose an inappropriate veil which doesn’t compliment your gown, and you may spoil the desired look of your carefully chosen dress.

Do you know that the veil is actually a reflection of the bride’s personality? A cheery fun-loving bride may go for elaborate flashy rhinestones on her veil. On the other hand, a grand and long cathedral veil gives the impression of a graceful demure bride.

Depending on your personality, the style of gown you choose and the formality of your wedding, these are some veils you can consider.

  1. Blusher

The blusher is a popular veil among brides. During the ceremony, it is the part of the veil that the groom lifts and throws back before he kisses the bride. Blushers are flexible veils which are suitable for informal and formal weddings. They can also be combined with veils of other lengths.

 

  1. Chapel

A chapel is a cascading veil measuring about 2.3 metres in length, and brushers the floor as the bride walks. When worn with a long-sleeved full-length gown, the veil compliments the gown to give an air of grandeur and elegance. Usually combined with other shorter layers, this veil can be used for semi-formal or formal weddings.

  1. Elbow

If you gown features intricate beadwork and details at the waist, then this veil is the one for you. The elbow veil ends just above and below the bride’s elbow and is generally worn together with a gown without a train. This veil also works well with a blusher and can be worn during formal and semi-formal weddings.

  1. Fingertip

All along, the fingertip veil has always been a popular choice among brides. It falls gently across the shoulders to the fingertips and ends just below the middle knuckle of the middle finger. Particularly beautiful when worn with an elbow length blusher, this veil is a crowd-pleaser as it is suitable for all types of weddings at any time of the day.

  1. Flyaway

Featuring multiple layers that brush the shoulders, the flyaway veil is generally worn during a more informal wedding. It usually complements an informal gown or a gown that highlights a smooth low-back cutting.

  1. Cathedral

Times have changed. The cathedral veil which used to be worn only during evening weddings is now acceptable during daytime weddings too. Measuring about 3.2 meters in length, the cathedral veil sweeps gracefully along the floor. It looks best when worn with a cathedral-length gown.

  1. Double Tier

The double tier veil consists of two pieces of fabric cut into different lengths. Examples are the elbow and fingertip length veils, or the fingertip and cathedral length veils. Depending on the look the bride desires, she can also choose the single tier or triple tier veil, which are variations of the double tier veil.

Surreal, So Real

The Inspiration

For a white wedding, green is in.

 

Imagine there is a showdown between fresh and fake in the race to spruce up the wedding ballroom, as eco-friendly couples pick silk flowers that look like the real thing to save the environment – as well as some money too.

 

Creating the Theme

When it comes to love, nothing should stand in your way. Similarly, when it comes to your wedding dinner, nothing should block the view of your guests.

Get some botanical paradise with splendid arrangements of lightly coloured roses, eustomas and hydrangeas in abundance. These flowers look sweet as well as sweet-smelling.

Of course, instead of using fresh flowers, it’s good to go for utilizing some high-quality silk flowers which do the same job without breaking the bank. With artificial flowers, you can get blooms of any season.

 

Doing it Yourself: Ideas & Tips

To plan a green wedding, the key is to apply the principles of the 3 Rs – reduce, reuse and recycle.

One way to reduce waste is to dispense with the wedding favours. But if you must, just make sure that what you give are useful such as homemade jam or chocolate.

You may also choose to go paperless by sending e-invitations, or use recycled paper.

Most couples would buy many things, such as decorative lamps, to create their dream wedding. You can consider selling them later at bridal forums in order to help other newlyweds with a tight budget.

Enchantress of Eden

Fresh floral wholesome sweetness is the core idea of day weddings. Let us return to the deep rosy glow a women in love naturally emits, to the shy bride who is unable to hide her happiness. No outlandish performance this time round, let’s go natural! You are happy, you feel blessed, a sweet swelling sensation is about to burst through.

 

The Gowns

Floral prints on the bustier or on the entire gown bring out sensual femininity while tints of blue, grey, pink or gold enhance the saccharinity of the bride. The designer makes sure that plunging V-necklines, strapless, mandarin collars or simple A-line gowns all match her floral design desirably.

 

The Look

Basic pink highlights the blush of a bride. For outdoor day weddings, we recommend the make-up to go as light and natural as possible, engaging sweet pastel colours instead of dark smoky shades.

 

The Hair

Hair tied in buns generally increases the glamour of the bride. However, they need not look as severe and restrained as they traditionally did. Pile layers of hair on top of one another and coiffe the ends to create a ruffled, loosed textured look.

 

Rule of the Day

Look good, feel good and have fun. After all, the day belongs to you.
