The WED2B guide to wedding veils
Will you be wearing a veil on your big day? It’s a simple accessory but wedding veils have the power to completely transform your look, adding real glamour and 'wow' factor.
Our Amixi accessories collection offers 4 veil lengths with or without a blush (the delicate layer that sits over the face). Each veil is created using tulle and finished with a variety of edges and embellishments.
Our stunning selection of finishes co-ordinate perfectly with our limited edition wedding dresses; from classic plain satin ribbon edges to intricate french laces and dainty scatters of crystal beading.
Here are some of our favourite wedding veils, waiting for you to try them on in store and take home today!
If you want to create a dramatic effect, then a chapel-length veil that trails behind you is the way to go. This style is also a wedding photographer’s dream because it lends itself to the most incredible pictures. We love this single tier cathedral-length veil 'Kyra', it's classic and elegant but with the contemporary twist of the beautiful lace appliqué.Lace veil: 'Kyra' by Amixi (£139.99 - Available in single tier chapel length). Dress: 'Alberta' by Anna Sorrano (£599 - Available in sizes 6 to 18.)
All in the detail
Choose a veil that enhances your gown. For example, if your dress has lace or beading look for a veil that works with those elements. Remember, your veil should complement your gown, not take centre stage and draw attention away from it. This delicately beaded veil is ideal for adding just a little extra sparkle as you walk down the aisle!
Make sure you think about your venue too. If you’re marrying outdoors go for a shorter veil that won’t trail on the ground. For a grander setting choose a dramatic, longer veil to match. This two-tier, cathedral-length veil with satin edging is the perfect choice - classic, stylish and sophisticated.
Styled to perfection
Most veils work well with loose hairstyles but if you're having a more complicated do choose a thin or sheer veil that won’t hide your hair. Whether you’re doing your own hair or getting it done by a professional make sure you practice placing and fastening your veil before the big day. The traditional lace-edged veil 'Washington' by Amixi looks great with an updo and a co-ordinating lace embellished wedding dress.
Lovely in lace
The guipure lace edge on the dreamy 'Leda' veil by Amixi complements the intricate bodice of our Anna Sorrano Cassandra dress perfectly. Simply accessorise with a pair of classic pearl earrings and you're ready to go!
Short and sweet
Also known as a ‘waltz’ or ‘ballerina’ veil, a fingertip veil falls anywhere below the fingertips and above the ankles. It's perfect for brides that want the look of a long veil but don’t want a veil that touches the ground. Team it with a shorter tea-length wedding dress like the Anna Sorrano 'Everly' for a cute vintage style.
