Choosing The Right Color For Your Veil

< Back to blog

Posted: 24th Sep 2014

In our third installment of “helping your bride choose a veil”, we would like to discuss colors. Above all other options when choosing a veil, the color is most important. Most brides come in thinking they have or are getting a “white” dress. Surprisingly most, pick a color that isn’t white. There are so many variations of the color white now, color swatches and comparing are an absolute must. One of the most popular colors for a dress now, Diamond White, (also called off-white or candle-light), is a soft white that almost looks white when not compared to anything white. Once you put a white veil on top of it though, your dress looks dirty.

There are also some crazy colors going through the dress trends now too. Illusions Bridal has many colors to choose from, including a nice shimmer cafe that goes with the all-too popular Champagne colored dress. Be sure to consult our color sample chart for those hard to match colors.

Also, keep in mind, the more layers of tulle that you have (the more layers of veil), the darker the tone the veil is going to be. So, if you are only getting a one layer veil, only hold one layer of the sample up against the dress. Be sure to compare apples to apples.

If you can’t find the color you need in our selection, go the fabric store, and see if you can find it there. If you can, call one of our specialists, and talk to them about sending in your own fabric to make a veil. Above, all, make sure to get the right color the first time!
