I designed and created my sister-in-law's veil for her beach wedding. I'd love to help you get the veil of your dreams!

What Kind of Veil is Best? Indoors vs. Outdoors

Indoor or outdoor wedding? Depending on your preference, you may want to re-think what type of veil you get.

Outdoor weddings can be very beautiful, relatively inexpensive, and are much easier to decorate than indoor weddings, so if you’re outdoorsy yourself, it just makes sense to have your wedding outside!

The typical concern with an outdoor wedding is weather. You probably won’t want a cathedral-length veil, which could pick up grass, sand, or whatever else is on the ground, so you’ll need something shorter than you.

If it’s a breezy day, everyone may feel comfortable…but if your veil doesn’t have trimming or beadwork helping weigh it down, you could end up with tulle blowing in your mouth as you’re trying to say your vows. Not fun!

Make sure that your veil has some type of trimming on the edges – beadwork, heavy ribbon edging, ribbon and pearls, lace edging, or a chain rhinestone band. Coordinate with your dress, but in doing so, ensure that there’s some weight within the veil design!

Indoor weddings can be very elegant, your wedding can be at any time of year, and if you’re allergic to the outdoors (like me), you can still have a lovely day. There are two things to consider for an indoor veil:

If you still want a cathedral-length veil, a simple solution is to remove it before the reception to avoid it being stepped on or pinched by enthusiastic family members. Alternately, an indoor environment means a veil of any length or weight will be suitable for the ceremony.
