Flared Veils

There are several variations of the standard veil, each designed to create a unique effect by cutting or gathering the material differently. Some are narrower at the top and flare out. Others are narrower at the bottom and flare in.

  • Fountain veils are "A"-shaped veils, widening as they fall around the bride. Elbow and shoulder length veils are lovely in a fountain shape.
  • The teardrop veil also flares out -- starting narrow at the headpiece. The oval cut at top and bottom form the teardrop appearance. The teardrop veil is stunning in cathedral length.
  • Angel-cut veils start wide, framing the face, and taper to a point as they cascade around the bride. If you choose to wear this type of veil, make sure it is edged so guests can see its beautiful cut. The "angel wing effect" is best seen in shoulder through fingertip lengths. Longer-cut angel veils, however, are distinctive as well, with the sides softly falling around you.
  • Cascading veils are another variation on the standard cut. The "U" cut is angled so the sides cascade around the bride. It is similar to the angel-cut veil in that the sides form cascading folds, but the flare's angle is less severe, making the bottom wider and more rounded.
Tip: Buy tulle by the bolt or roll here.
