Types of wedding dress lengths

A very valid question and one we get from our brides all the time is "what veil style would go well with my wedding gown?"

Veils at Mademoiselle Bridal come in different designs, fullness and lengths. Let's have a look at some of the choices by dress silhouette in this post.

Types of wedding dress lengths
  • Mermaid / Trumpet

Consider: Birdcage, Elbow or FingertipLength to really showcase the nice flare of the dress, or a long veil that extends beyond the train of your dress
Avoid: Ballet Veil (also know as Waltz or Dance Veil), as it ends around where the dress flares out which makes your bridal look bottom heavy

  • Ball Gown / Princess

Consider:Elbow, Fingertip, Chapel or longer lengths will give a flowy and romantic vibe
Avoid:Waltz and Floor Length

  • A-line / Modified A-line / Empire

Consider:Fingertipor Long Veils, just make sure the veil extends beyond the train
Avoid:Floor Length, so the veil does not blend too much with your beautiful dress

  • Sheath / Column / Slip

ConsiderChapel Length and longer lengths, or opt for a shorter veil such as Birdcage, Elbow and Fingertip Length for a chic bridal look
Avoid: None, these silhouettes are rather versatile when it comes to paring with a veil!

  • Tea-length / Mini

Consider: Birdcage, Shoulderand ElbowVeils are popular choices, or Waltz/Ballet and Floor Length if you are going for a smart chic bridal look
Avoid: Birdcage or Shoulder Length

  • Jumpsuit

Consider: Birdcage, Elbow Veil or Cape Veil to keep it nice and chic
Avoid: Floor Length
