The wedding veils styles for 2014 cover a wide range of designs, lengths, colors and edgings. For a more traditional bridal design, wedding veil suppliers offer the standard and simple tulle veils with cut edge, pencil edge or corded edge in the standard colors of white, diamond white (off-white) or ivory. Diamond white is a great color for light ivory wedding gowns as it is not bright white and it’s not a yellowish ivory …. it’s in between the two colors. You can get these veils in one or two tiers in lengths from shoulder, elbow, fingertip, knee, floor, chapel and cathedral. Three tier veils are usually reserved for cathedral veils only – with the top two tiers being elbow & fingertip and the third tier cathedral. When you have two tiers on a bridal veil the top shorter layer is used as a blusher.
In the past few seasons, mantilla style wedding veils have become popular with all brides. You don’t have to have a Spanish style wedding to wear a mantilla style veil. The mantilla style veil usually features a lot beautiful lace along the edge of the veil and the veil usually only has one tier. These veils can also feature embroidered flowers and beading for added elegance. Alencon lace is a type of lace commonly found on mantilla style veils. This lace is a needle lace which originated in Alencon, France during the 16th century. Although, the Alencon lace found on most veils these days is machined lace from Asia, it’s still a beautiful accent to any bridal veil.
Edgings on bridal veils come in many forms this season. A popular style has always been a scalloped edge. This style of edging on a veil gives a very soft, romantic look to the veil as the edge has soft curves. Another style this season is similar to the scalloped edge and it’s called a butterfly edge. This type of edging also has a soft curves rather than a straight edge.
Flower designs have always been popular on wedding veils and the 2014 hand-made wedding veils from Ansonia Bridal are featuring some lovely embroidered flower designs. Ansonia has also incorporated sequins and seed beads into their flower designed veils. These veils come in white, diamond white and ivory and popular lengths of elbow, fingertip or cathedral. The cathedral length veils are the most dramatic and have spectacular trains that cascade behind the bride as she walks down the aisle.
Pearls and weddings just go together since the beginning of time. Many of the wedding veils styles in 2014 still features scattered pearls or pearls along the edge. These veils will go best when the bride wears that pearl necklace she received from Mom or accents pearls that are sewn on her gown. If the bride is wearing a very plain wedding gown she can add a bridal sash that has pearl accents to go along with the scattered pearl veil.
