Brides: Read These 8 Expert Tips Before You Choose Your Veil



We’ve been talking about our love for the veil for a while now, and continue to be happy in seeing its returns to the wedding-day ensembles of all kinds of brides with all kinds of styles.

Veil and headpiece designer Sara Gabriel makes some amazingly gorgeous pieces—we’ve pointed you towards her trunk shows at the Wedding Pavilion at Van Cleve in Paoli quite a few times before!—and we thought her tips for choosing the right veil for you were really helpful, especially for a bride who hasn’t always envisioned herself in something specific. (And we have to say, we love that she loves a blusher, and totally agree that that moment when the father lifts the bride’s veil is really something special.)

Take a look before you shop to make sure you love that finishing piece on your wedding-day look. After all, many ladies say the moment they tried a veil on was when they first truly felt like a bride.
