Veil Lengths

Birdcage veils

This is the shortest veil length.  They cover your eyes or reach down to the chin. 

Shoulder-length veils

These end anywhere between your shoulders and the middle of your back.  

Elbow-length veils

Wonderful with ball gowns because they end where the skirt begins to flare out.

Fingertip-length veils

This length seems to be the most popular.  It is very flattering to both brides and their dresses.  

Ballet-length veils

Also called waltz-length, these end between the knees and the ankle.  The elegance of a long veil, yet still short enough to dance in and not trip over.  

Chapel-length veils

Romantic and a bit more formal, chapel-length  reaches the floor, and may pool a little, but does not have a train.  

Cathedral-length veils

Very fashionable and dramatic, this veil can fan out longer than your gown's train. They make for gorgeous photographs, but they can be difficult to maneuver.  

Factors to Consider

Dress type

Your veil should add to the beauty of your wedding dress, not take attention away from it.  They should compliment each other in style, material, and color.  


How are you planning to wear your hair on your wedding day?  Your hairstyle will determine how the veil will attach to and sit on your head.  

Wedding location

An outdoor wedding may not be the best place to wear a cathedral-length veil.  It would pick up everything on the ground that you walked over.  If you will be in an area that may get windy, a shorter veil is less likely to blow about.  

Reception style

If you would like to keep a veil on during your reception, you may want a multi-tiered version that can be removed in pieces.  Also, consider how easily your veil is attached and taken off.  You will want the transition to be easy when you remove it.

After you purchase your bridal veil, hang it up as soon as you get it home.  This will loosen any wrinkles naturally.  If they do not all fall out, steam the rest away. 

Your favorite wedding dress store in Miami is here to help you through the entire veil-picking process.  Our talented consultants will assist you in finding the perfect veil to give you the look that you are dreaming of.  With Brides of America and Maritza's Bridal Veils, you are guaranteed amazing customer service, the best quality materials, and a beautiful finished look.
