The ANDREA VEIL was an immediate hit with Brides. A fine sheer soft tulle veil with a drapped back this veil works perfectly with backless dresses or those with a highly detailed back. A contemporary twist on the traditional veil the ANDREA veil comes with the addition of two ivory beaded drapes and finished with a delicate piece of lace at each end. This veil can introduce a grecian feel when worn with floaty or floral themed dresses or theme it with an Art Deco dress for an ether real vintage look.
The Andrea veil has a deep draped back and the veil is cut in a narrow pattern so it is light and very linear. A slightly heavier bodied version with a more shallow drape is available called ARLENE
The ANDREA veil can be clipped onto the back of the dress to be worn as a cape perhaps for the evening celebrations. However, the width will be determined by the length of the drapes so please bare this in mind.
NOTE: The design has recently been updated to include a detailed beaded floral lace applique to each end. Please see photos for reference.
Colour - Bridal Ivory
Floor - 72"
Chapel - 90"
Cathedral - 110"
Royal Cathedral - 130"
Floor just hits the floor and trails a little behind the bride. A great choice if you want the drama of a veil but no looking after it. This length will sit on the train of a gown and the raw edge means it will almost melt into the gown so you won't see where one ends and the other begins.
Chapel a very popular choice at 90" this veil trails nicely behind the bride. Longer than most short dress trains the chapel length will sit longer than the end of the dress.
Cathedral A more dramatic choice at 110" this veil is quite long and is best suited to dresses with a longer train. Because of the soft draping of this style veil it tends to bunch together and so it is best worn nearest to the length of the dress or just slightly over, that way the veil rests on the dress and this helps it sit nice and wide.
Royal Cathedral The most dramatic length available off-the-shelf. The Royal Cathedral veil is a real regal choice. Think of any of the royal weddings and you immediately picture those long trailing veils. A beautiful choice but one that requires a little bit of minding due to the length.
