- What is the difference between a veil and a veil with a blusher? The blusher is an additional layer of tulle or fabric that covers the face as you walk down the aisle. It also adds extra volume to the veil when flipped back off the face, creating a second layer to the veil portion. A veil without a blusher is just one single layer of tulle that drapes from a comb at varying lengths such as chapel or cathedral. - Is there different types of blusher styles? As you start shopping for veils, you’ll soon realize there is bouquet of unique styles to choose from. I find pinterest is a great place to start for ideas to narrow down your selection. As you familiarize yourself, you can start to figure out what length of veil and blusher you would like. A lot of veils can be modified, and custom made. Contact your favorite designer to ask if they offer that option – or your local bridal boutique can suggest designers that offer veils with the aspects you are looking for. It is important to try on different veil styles with your wedding dress of choice, so you get an idea of the final look.

- Why choose for a blusher veil? Blusher veils have a lovely layering effect to your final bridal look that can help create volume and elegant drama for outdoor photos if you are looking to have fun with the photographer! It is truly a timeless style, but also a personal decision. Brides also may opt for a blusher veil if they are looking for a little bit more tradition to be added to their wedding day. At the end of the aisle, it can be lifted by the person walking the bride down the aisle as a final sendoff, or by the fiancée as a surprise before the vows are exchanged.

Bridal Tip

The length of your veil and blusher should add to your final wedding look – not compete with it. Take a peek at where the blusher and veil hits, does it enhance your look? Would you like a veil with no details to let your modern look shine, or do you need a touch of sparkle? When trying on veils with your wedding dress, play close attention to how you feel and what your final look needs.
