Choosing a Length: Part 5 - Elbow

As we get shorter, the veils begin  to add more personality and fun to a wedding look. Thus far, the veils we've talked about have been classic, beautiful options. Longer veils have a traditional feel, and add elegance to any gown. The Elbow length veil is just on the border of traditional and flirty, classic and cute. 

The elbow length veil is perfect for a dress with a full skirt. It accentuates the waist, and avoids making the bride look like an elongated marshmallow drowning in white. 

The elbow length veil can also sport a wider edge, like the one below, without feeling heavy or gaudy. Longer veils need to be simple to appear weightless, while an elbow length veil can have a bit more fun. 
Coming up are the shoulder and birdcage veils! Even more fun!
