Q1: How do I choose the right veil color?
Veils are very sheer with little color, that way they tone 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 color 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 color, as well as gowns with with the color 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 a 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 colour, oyster works beautifully with gowns that have champagne, vintage silver/pewter, gold or rose-blush accents, or gowns of the colour 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.
Q2: How do I know my belt size?
Measure your waist (or where you want your belt to sit) , over your gown with two 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.
