Traditionally considered a wedding-day must-have, they say a veil is what turns a woman in a beautiful white dress into a bride. A seemingly simple accessory, the veil has the power to completely transform your wedding day look.

What veil is best for you? Take a look at the top 10 bridal veil styles…

Cathedral Veil: Traditionally worn at more formal weddings, the cathedral length is the longest—nine to 25 feet—and more detailed. When paired with a grand gown, this is the stuff of fairy tales…

Chapel Veil: Normally a bit longer than a floor length veil, the elegant chapel length is best if you dream of dramatic walk down the aisle.

Ballet Veil: Also known as a waltz or ballerina veil, ballet length falls anywhere between your fingertips and the floor—usually about knee to ankle—adding drama without hindering your movement. It also offers the perfect wind swept photo opportunity.

Fingertip Length Veil: A timeless favorite, this length offers all the perks of a sophisticated, long veil without too much restriction of movement. The fingertip is also easily worn with any gown style and looks flattering with an array of hairstyles.

Shoulder Length Veil: Playful and fun, a shorter veil is traditional with a twist—adding a playful element to your wedding day look.

Elbow Length Veil: This veil length covers your shoulders and frames your face, complementing your hairstyle or enhancing details around your waist. It’s also perfect with a ball gown because it ends where the full skirt begins.

Mantilla Veil: A circle of tulle and lace, it is a regal, old-word option that’s usually word draped over the head, framing the face. This Spanish-inspired style is best paired with a streamlined silhouette.

Blusher Veil: A mix of classic and modern, the blusher is typically a single tiered layer of tulle affixed to a comb that falls in front of the face.

Juliet Cap Veil: Offering a more vintage look—think 1920 and 30s—the Juliet cap covers the crown of the head with tulle to your fingertips. Inspired by Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’, this style is perfect for a chic bride with a nostalgic side.

Birdcage Veil: Usually worn by brides looking for more of a vintage and retro feel, the caged veil can be any shape or size. Often paired with a bold lip and a shorter gown, the birdcage accentuates your wedding day hair and makeup.

Working on your wedding registry, but not quite sure where to start when it comes to glassware? Don’t fret, our Master Sommelier Virginia Philip is here to help.

Her expert tip: “When registering for your glassware, keep in mind who your guests are and also when and why you may use specific glassware.”

Wedding Registry: Glassware

Which brand is best for you? Here are Virginia’s favorite three brands and how to use each glass style…

1. Riedel – The true wine connoisseur’s glass, Riedel is a must for couples who appreciate a great glass of wine. The shape of the glass helps to enhance the taste profile and the clear glass allows for a perfect view of the wine’s color nuances.

2. Tiffany – Simple yet oh-so elegant, Tiffany glasses can be used for everyday drinking and special celebrations. While the shape is not designed for specific use, the glass is best for red versus white wines.

3. Waterford – For the truly elegant dinner table, these crystal glasses are a must. Perfect for the holidays and impressionable to guests, this is your special occasion glassware collection.
