Popular Designs for Simple Wedding Veils

By Heidi Green , last updated June 22, 2011

There are many popular designs for simple wedding veils that coordinate with many dress styles and are easy to wear. Whether you plan to make your own veil or purchase one ready to wear, a simple veil is a classic, elegant choice. The following article outlines a few of the most popular designs for simple wedding veils and how to wear them.

Birdcage Veil

If you have a vintage themed wedding or love the Audrey Hepburn look, consider a birdcage veil for your wedding ensemble. These simple veils usually feature wide diamond netting, and drape across the face diagonally. Others hang straight down to the tip of the nose or cover the entire face. No matter the length of a birdcage veil, it is typically pinned to the top of the head with a large flower or rhinestone clip. It's the ultimate choice for vintage glam!

Hat Veil

Hat veils, especially pillbox hat veils, are becoming increasingly popular among brides. These come in a range of styles, including small hats with a birdcage veil attached in front and larger hats with a trailing veil that drapes down the back. This simple wedding veil design works well with a variety of wedding looks, including vintage, western and modern. As a general rule, smaller hats are better, since larger hats can hide too much of your face.

Long Veil

For a timeless look that's elegant and easy, opt for a long veil. These can be made of a tight or wide diamond weave netting, and can even be adorned with metallic sparkles. This style works best when hair is pulled into an updo, as these types of veils typically attach with a comb. This style of veil is typically the easiest to make at home, with all of the supplies readily available at craft stores. No matter what type of simple veil you choose for your wedding day, make sure it reflects your personal style and tastes.
