Alright bride-to-be! So you have already picked up which wedding dress you want Brides & Tailor to customize for your wedding day, and you have given us the measurements and everything. But what about the veil?! Many brides get confused when they reach this step because they do not know which length to choose. There aren’t any basic rules about choosing a bridal veil, but here are some of Brides & Tailor’s suggestions!
1- Cathedral Length Veil: Cathedral Length Veils usually range between 7.5 to 10 feet in length. Sometimes they even reach 20 feet in length. This type of veils definitely adds a dramatic appearance on your wedding day, and we personally love it! The best wedding dress for this veil would be a full body gown. If you are picking a wedding dress which has a lot of beading or lace, try to choose a veil which is simple without too much beading at the edges so that it keeps the elegance of the overall look. On the other hand, if the wedding dress is too simple, you should choose a bridal veil with a bit of embroidery and beadings so that it makes it look less plain. Cathedral veils are wonderful for indoor weddings and for walking down the aisle at church.
2- Chapel length veil: The length of the chapel length veil is usually around 7 feet. It is shorter than cathedral veils which makes it more convenient to move around. Its length and elegance will not distract the attention away from the dress as it is not as dramatic as the cathedral length.
2- Fingertip Length Veil: The length of this veil is usually around 3 feet. This is actually one of the most popular veil styles because it is very convenient . It is also flattering and goes well with any body type and dress style. This type of veil makes your body look longer. It can be used in indoor and outdoor weddings!
3-Birdcage Veil: If you want that vintage, classic look, look no further than the birdcage veil. It gives any bride charm and sophistication. It is rarely worn these days but it would still look great especially with red lipstick!
Regarding the color of the bridal veil, it should definitely be the same as the color of the wedding dress to complement the overall look!:)

Our blog today presents the top 10 suggestions for plus size brides to follow when they are choosing their plus size wedding dress.
Know what your budget is. Before you start shopping for a wedding dress, make sure that you are aware of your budget so you can avoid any disappointment later on. Many local boutiques charge plus size brides additional money because they say that plus size brides wedding dresses require more material than standard US sizes. This is something that we never do at Brides & Tailor. All brides from all sizes have the same price here!
Make sure that you are aware of the fabrics that give plus size brides a more smooth look on their wedding day. Certain thick fabric such as Tafetta are great for plus size brides because it makes their body features look more smooth. This makes the body look more uniform and hides imperfections.
Avoid sleeveless wedding dresses if your upper side is big because this will make your arms look big and out of shape. Instead, opt for wedding dresses with 3/4 sleeves or long sleeves. They will give the illusion of having slimmer arms.
Make sure you choose a wedding dress which does not have too much decoration/ embroidery in places that you want to hide. For example, having a plus size wedding dress with too much embroidery and beading on the hips will draw attention to your hips. At Brides & Tailor, we take pride in offering our plus size brides professional and free bridal consultation before tailoring their dress.
Know your body shape before wedding dress shopping. Plus size brides have many different body shapes. For example, if you have a big bust, you need to choose a wedding dress which is tight from the upper part of the wedding dress until the middle of the thighs, just like the shape of a bell. If you had the extra weight in your hips and waist, we advise you to choose a wedding dress design which is tight in the upper part and wider in the waist’s region so it would camouflage the hips and the waist.
Just because you are a plus size bride, it does not mean that you have to wear any design that others advise you to wear. If you have a certain idea in mind, Brides & Tailor offer you free consultation by a team of bridal specialist who can tell you what suits you and what doesn’t. Just because another plus size bride wore a wedding dress and didn’t look that good does not mean you will be the same. Every body is different.
Make sure you invest in good spanx and a bodyshaper as this makes a huge difference in creating a more uniform body shape for plus size brides. This can make the wedding dress much more elegant and fit!
Do not choose a fluffy wedding dress. This can add up volume to your body shape so you will look bigger. Instead, opt for plus size wedding dresses that have the rushing style ( where we gather the fabric of the wedding dress into one area. This is the best way to look slimmer.
Choose a long veil to look taller when wearing your wedding dress.
Choose a wedding dress that shows your neck, since this will shift the focus into your face.
