Veil Styles 101 - Understanding the Different Types of Wedding Veils


When selecting your veil, you may not be sure what all the different terms mean. In our simple guide we’ll breakdown the types of veils that are available so you will know exactly the type of wedding veil you will need for your wedding gown. Be sure to check out the wedding veils we offer within our bridal accessories category.

Blusher – is a short, single layer of veil worn over the face for your walk down the aisle. It is either flipped or removed once you reach the end of the aisle.

Cathedral – this is the most formal of wedding veils, also referred to as a “royal” veil. This style falls almost to the feet from the top of the headpiece.

Chapel – another formal type of veil, which falls approximately 7’ feet from the headpiece

Double Tier – Two layers of veil, usually a blusher and a veil of varying lengths.

Elbow – as the name implies, this veil extends to the bride’s elbows.

Fingertip – as the name suggests, this type of veil falls to the fingertips from the headpiece.

Flyaway – a multilayered veil that barely touches the tips of the shoulders, less formal than most.

Fountain – retro-styled, it gathers at the crown of the head and cascades around the face.

Mantilla – long, Spanish style circular veil that frames the face and is made out of lace our lace-edged tulle.

Pouf – exactly as it sounds, this veil has a pouf of tulle or netting fastened to the comb to create height

Waltz – less formal that Cathedral or Chapel, this veil falls somewhere between the knee and ankle.
