Veils are very sheer with little color, that way they tone in against the gown and color is not too concentrated when gathered or folded together. Our two most popular shades are ivory and eggshell.
Here’s an easy guide:
White: pure, bright white. Works well with gowns with the colour name “white” made of fabrics other than silk.
Eggshell: also often referred
to as diamond white, or silk white, eggshell is very slightly
off-white without any yellow tone. Pairs well with natural silk gowns in a
white colour, as well as gowns with the colour name natural, diamond white, or
pearl. Eggshell is very neutral and
tones against almost any gown shade, so if you’re unsure about matching this
shade is a great option!
Ivory: Deeper in tone than eggshell, ivory is warmer, with a very slight creamy undertone. Pairs well with gowns with the color name ivory or candlelight.
Dark Ivory: In the same family as ivory, only a couple of shades deeper. Dark ivory is a great option for gowns that tend toward a creamier tone, or sometimes textured fabrics like brocade or silk Mikado where the texture deepens the appearance of the colour. If the colour name of your gown is cream, or it’s a deep ivory tone, this is the one for you!
Oyster: Like a very light sand or taupe color, oyster works beautifully with gowns that have champagne, vintage silver/pewter, gold, or rose-blush accents, or gowns of the color name antique. The undertone of this tulle creates a warm, rich effect.
Sorbet: This tulle is a pale pink with a warm, slightly peach undertone. Think of a satin ballet slipper- this is the tone. Works well with warm-toned blush gowns, if your gown tends more towards a rose-blush, opt for oyster or eggshell.
Still unsure & need help? Reach out via email@example.com with your gown designer name, gown style, fabric type, and color name (what the designer calls it) and we’ll be happy to help.
Q.: How do I know
my belt size?
Measure your waist (or where you want the belt to sit) over your gown, with 2 fingers under the tape. Do not cinch the tape, it should be comfortable. If you are not able to measure with your gown, take your natural waist (or where you want to wear the belt) and add 2”. Always round up.
For the most comfort on your wedding day, it’s best to have the belt lightly sewn to the gown to avoid sliding and turning.
