Choosing your Wedding Veil

1. A veil can transform the simplest dress into a stunning Bridal outfit.

2. Try lots of different styles and lengths of veil in different fabrics to find the one that best compliments your outfit.

3. Don't have a heavily patterned veil with a very ornate dress as one will 'fight' with the other.

4. Your guests should say 'YOU look stunning', not your outfit looks stunning'.

5. Don't have a veil that cuts across detail at the back of the dress. Let the veil finish below the decoration. Silk tulle is sheer enough to allow decoration to show through.

6. If you are petite, don't have a veil that swamps you such as a high bouffant veil. It will only make you look smaller

7. Think of adding colour eg. embroidery, to the veil to link in with your bridesmaids and/or bouquet.

8. Remember the veil is part of the Bridal outfit, not something that is 'plonked' on your head as an after thought.

9. Don't forget to take your veil with you when you have your hair trial.

10. If you are nervous of pressing your veil, ask the store where you bought it if they will steam it a couple of days before the wedding. You can transport it home covered in a pillow case or duvet cover depending on its length.

11. Don't wear something because you think you should, wear what YOU want.

12. Don't make a decision about whether to wear a veil or not until you have tried some on with your dress. A long veil can create a wonderful 'aura' around you.

13. Don't forget you can have a veil made to measure just as you can a dress. You can have the exact length and decoration that YOU want.

14.You only wear a veil once so make the most of it and enjoy it!

I have more than two decades of knowledge and experience since graduating in Fashion and Textile Design from University of Westminster, London. Previously I worked as a Costume Designer for BBC TV in London and Cardiff, where I was nominated for a BAFTA Cymru award for best Costume Design. After, I ran a successful couture Bridal Design Studio using sumptuous silk fabrics and was awarded Fellowship of the Society of Artists and Designers. My love of natural fabrics and the drama of weddings has led me to specialise in designing and making couture silk wedding veils. I am probably the only couture Bridal veil designer specialising solely in bespoke silk veils.
