Wedding veils are often overlooked, but they are so important in completing your look! Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect kind:

While these days wedding etiquette is not as “rigid” as it used to be, many brides still choose to take it into consideration for their big day. Having a wedding veil is, of course, more of an option these days – but the truth is that it can complete your look in amazing ways. How do you choose the perfect wedding veil, though? Here are some tips to help you decide on what is best for you and for your wedding dress:


  • Not all veils are created equal and, most of the times, every type of veil has a very specific gown design it works fantastic with. For instance, birdcage veils look fabulous with vintage and short wedding dresses, whereas flyaway veils are almost shoulder-length and work with more casual dresses such as lacy sheaths. Similarly, a chapel gown will almost exclusively look great with a statement wedding gown to complement its grandeur and elbow-length veils are usually recommended for gowns that don’t have a train.
  • If your mother-in-law insists on having you wear her own wedding veil, think thoroughly of the answer you will give her. If it looks great, there’s no reason not to wear it. But if you don’t like it, try to see if your mother has her own veil and tell your mother-in-law that your mom wants you to wear her veil. Also, if you plan on having a more casual wedding, it is acceptable to tell your mother-in-law that you  don’t find it appropriate to wear a wedding veil at all.
  • If you settle on a cathedral veil, make sure someone will arrange it behind you before you start walking down the aisle. If you want to, you can have someone carry it behind you, but that’s not necessarily a “must”.

Once you have decided on your gown and veil, don’t forget to stop by Grand Central Party and rent all those small things that make the great differences. From tents to table linens and cake stands, we hold a very good range of wedding rentals to help you create your very own ideal wedding!
