You’ve found your dream wedding gown...

...and now it’s time to accessorize. You are immediately faced with another choice. To veil or not to veil? Veils have a rich history in wedding fashion and hold many traditions. Did you know veils were originally created by the Romans to protect the bride from evil spirits?! Thank goodness that isn’t a thing anymore! Over time, a veil's purpose has evolved to mean different things to different religions. In our modern society though, veils are often viewed as a final touch to a gorgeous wedding gown.

In terms of accessories- a veil can be a chance to add a pinch of your personality to your wedding gown. What do you want your veil to say about you? Let’s explore personality types and veil choices.


Brides who see the beauty in simplicity may be drawn to a traditional veil. If you are enneagram type 1, 2, or 9 you may be more apt to choosing a simple veil. All of these personality types hold traits such as principled, generous, and agreeable. If you’re a go with flow type of gal- a simple, classic, yet beautiful veil may be right for you! 


When you think of your wedding day, do you think of the jaw dropping entrance you will make into your ceremony? What better way to bring the drama to your day than a long cathedral style veil. Enneagram types 4, 7, and 8 would likely choose a dramatic veil that will leave the guests talking about it for days to come. If traits such as self confident, spontaneous, and expressive describe you- a dramatic veil may be a priority for you! 


When it comes to fashion, you have a point of view and you stick to it! If you are known for taking fashion risks and you’re the go-to friend for fashion advice, a custom veil (or cape) could bring your wildest veil dreams to life. Enneagram types 3, 5, and 6 may choose to create a one-of-a-kind veil. These personality types can be described as engaging, innovative, and image-conscious. If your style doesn’t fit into a box, a custom veil that shows of your personality is great option!
