Once you've decided how to wear your hair on your wedding day, it's time for another question: how to wear a veil. Being a bride is pretty much the only opportunity you'll have in life to wear one, so if you're on the fence between veil or no veil, we say go for it! But keep in mind that there's more to wedding veils than simply throwing a piece of tulle over your head and calling it a day. First, you need to decide exactly what type of veil you want, and then you'll need to factor in your bridal hairstyle and how to wear a veil that will complement it. Your wedding hair stylist will be able to give you some pointers, but we've rounded up some of our favorite ideas to get you started.
Here's how to wear a veil with any type of wedding hairstyle.
Chignons and low updos with veils
If you're okay with covering your "lowdo" for a few hours, the veil should be tucked into the top of the hairstyle to lift it slightly up and out. If you want your hair to be in the spotlight for the entire day, you can add the veil to the underside of the bun instead. Note that this will leave the veil closer to your neck and shoulders, and will also make the fabric appear a few inches longer.
