My dress has lace. Should I get a matching lace veil?
When it comes to matching up to a lace dress, we find brides tend to be in one of two camps. They either decide that the dress is detailed enough and any more lace would be too much, or they fall in love with lace so much that there’s no such thing as too much anymore!
New at Pearls & Lace! - We can now order extra motifs/lace the exact same as your wedding dress to offer you a custom veil bespoke for you to match your dress exactly. We can also order you and your fiance's lace initials to insert into your veil if you’d like to add as a personal touch. Our bridal consultants will talk you through this during your consultation.
How do you Store a Wedding Veil?
Caring for your bridal veil at home, especially if it’s a very long one, can take some careful planning. The absolute ideal situation would be if someone has a spare bedroom where it can be left to hang, undisturbed right up until the wedding. Obviously, this won’t be possible for everyone. You may have no option but to leave it packaged until nearer the date. At that time, it would naturally have acquired some wrinkles. To help smooth them out, you can steam it at home using a hand-held steamer, (please make sure not to Iron your veil, trust us it’s not a good idea!).
Should my headpiece be attached to my veil?
It’s more common for them to be separate pieces. That way, if you want to remove your veil later on for the reception you still have a pretty hair accessory in place.

How much to Wedding Veils Cost?
Our Wedding Veils range from €80 to €450 and custom designs can go beyond depending on the design.
Do you wear a veil during the evening reception?
It’s really up to you. There are no hard and fast rules, it’s Your Day! But I think if you have opted for a long one you would probably want to remove it at some point during the evening. Even if it’s just to stop other guests standing on it
For shorter styles, fingertip length or above, you could easily wear it all day and all night and forget it’s even there!
