Quick tips to help you enjoy a stress-free bridal accessory shopping experience!
- Start thinking about choosing your veil 4-6 months before your wedding.
- Veils can take up to 8 weeks to create, depending on the level of intricacy.
- Custom veils may take longer.
As tulle is gathered or layered together, the colour becomes more concentrated. For that reason, veil colours are very subtle, so as to not be too concentrated once gathered at the comb. When diffused as a single layer, the difference in tones are very subtle, so it's easier to choose a perfect veil colour than you think.
ONE TONE DRESSES
If your wedding gown is a plain fabric like crepe, mikado or satin, match your veil to the colour of your dress.
TIP | Check your wedding gown order receipt or refer to the designer website to find out the colour of your dress. You may think of it as white, when it's actually ivory.

TWO TONE DRESSES
If your wedding gown has lace, match your veil to the color of your lace.
If your gown is two tone like ivory(lace) with a blush or nude underlay, your veil should match your lace and be an ivory tone, or a neutral colour like our eggshell.
Eggshell is our most popular colour because it's very neutral and tones against almost any colour. This *just off-white* shade has no yellow undertone, and pairs beautifully with natural silks, as well as gowns with colour names like pearl, natural, off-white.
This colour is often referred to as diamond white, or silk white by some designers. We call it eggshell as we found some brides were confusing "diamond white" with pure white. Eggshell is deeper in colour than pure white.
Deeper in tone than eggshell, ivory is warmer with a very slight creamy undertone. Pairs well with gowns with the color name ivory or vanilla.
Dark ivory matches ivory gowns of a deeper colour, verging into the cream family. Great against rich, textural fabrics like brocade, some silk Mikados. Pairs with gowns with colour names like antique ivory, warm Ivory, dark ivory, cream.
Pure, bright white. Works exclusively with gowns described as white, with the exception of silks. "White" dresses made of silk usually go best with eggshell.

The right veil will help you express your style & enhance the vibe of your wedding.
Vines are a hair stylist favorite, they're flexible and can be placed on the side of the head or wrapped around a pony tail or bun.
*Tip Vines don't have a comb or clip to attach them to the head, your stylist will pin them in with bobby pins.
Crowns are considered the most formal bridal headpiece style, giving all the royal wedding vibes, but there are also whimsical & playful styles. Wear with hair up, hair down or wrapped around a high bun.
Combs and pins
Combs can be nested on the hair just over the ear or placed on top of the veil comb. Tip* Consider getting two combs or a comb & matching pins for either side of your hair style for a more dramatic look with sparkle from every angle.
Headbands can be finished on soft silky ribbons or flexible bands. They feature just enough sparkle and have a low profile for a gentle romantic look.
Barrettes add subtle detail for the modern minimalist bride. Chic & low maintenance, they make an elopement or micro-wedding instantly more bridal, then pair them with other accessories for a more statement look at your "sequel wedding" festivities.
