There are wedding veils with different widths to create different bridal looks that match a wide variety of wedding dress shapes with different width skirts & trains.
Wedding dresses come in different silhouettes; sheath, fit flare, A-line and ball gown etc. When choosing your perfect wedding veil length, it might be worth looking into the right wedding veil width as well.
How Wide Should A Short Veil Be?
If you have decided on a short veil (up to fingertip length) for your dress, the width is not so important because it will be above your dress’s train. For a short veil, the width options are between 60” (slim option) - 72” (standard option).
How Wide Should A Long Veil Be?
If you decide on a long veil, then you can play around with veils of different width before deciding on the one you love. The wider the train, the wider the veil should be. In addition, the longer veil allows the veil’s full width to really show itself as it spreads out on the floor.
We recommend having a veil wider and longer than your train to transform your veil’s look. For example, a sheath or a little mermaid gown with a small puddle train, along with a slim width veil a little longer than the train is a perfect combination.
