The veils are completely optional, unless the place of your ceremony or religion forces you to wear one. If you are considering wearing a veil, here are some tips to find the best option:
Choose a veil that is the same color or a lighter shade than your dress. The longer the veil, the more formal it will be. Choose it accordingly. A very long veil will overwhelm a short, fun and flirty dress. Long veils are fine for the ceremony but can be annoying at the banquet. Consider a style that has two layers or take of the veil completely, after having said the “Yes I do”!
