Nothing says Bride more than the long and flowing veil.   Long veils convey a romantic mood via all that added gossamer sheer. . . . . .Women who  go traditional sporting the full regalia of a classic bride typically love those long veils. So what you ask is considered a long veil? Typically long veils start at the ‘finger tip’ length and work all the way down to the twenty-five foot cathedral.veils that add the ultimate in drama.  FYI The bridal veil in particular has been a symbol of purity as well as mystery in many traditions. Since Biblical times every era it seems has innovated the veil and how it’s worn. Victorians donned yards of handmade laces they passed on to daughters and granddaughters; 1960s brides popularized the pouf veil still stylish today.

These veils are so elegant and so romantic. I think my favorite is the third veil. One of the many good things about Bride Chic is that you explain bridal terminology to future brides!
Many thanks,
