The wedding veil is an iconic bridal accessory, dating back to roman times. Veils have a wide variety of lengths. From short and sweet to long and dramatic! The veil will finish off any bridal look! We have seen our fair share of bridal looks and veils throughout the years. With over 50 years of seeing brides make their way into our ballroom, we always look forward to seeing what the lovely ladies will wear as their finishing piece to their bridal look!




Bird Cage Veil

This is the shortest veil length, usually worn just covering the eyes or extending down to the chin. They are super stylish and low hassle.




Shoulder - Length Veil

These beauties brush the shoulders and go down to the middle of the back. These are a bit more fashion forward, with a touch of tradition! These are a great option if you have detailing on your gown.



Elbow – Length Veil

This choice is elegant and easy to handle when combined with a blusher. Perfect with a fuller dress or ball gown! This would be perfect for a daytime affair. 



Fingertip – Length Veil

The most popular veil by far! It flatters most brides and their dresses! ~ Think Kate Middleton



 Chapel- Length Veil

Here we have a real statement piece! This veil goes all the way to the floor, also called a sweep veil.



Cathedral-Length Veil 

Here we have the grandest of them all!! They are perfectly suited for formal affairs, and they will be perfect heirloom piece to pass down!
