What Is A Chapel Length Veil?
A chapel length veil is a traditional full-length wedding veil that is able to extend past the train on most wedding dresses. Chapel length is easily the most popular size of the long, floor-sweeping veils that we make. That's why we have more chapel length veils than any of our other long veil lengths. We like to give our brides more of what they like!
Although they're the most popular, chapel length veils are not the longest veils we make — that honour falls to cathedral length. But it is the size of the train most often seen on today's wedding dresses.
If you think your train might be extra-long, or if you’re just unsure on veil lengths in general – as we mention in our Veil Length Guide, this topic is rather confusing! – then just get in touch, send us your pictures, and we’ll be happy to offer an expert opinion.
Do Chapel Length Veils Suit All Dresses?
We think they do, yes! Although we may be slightly biased. And by slightly we mean extremely because we do love a long veil! But in our experience, we've only ever seen a dress enhanced by a beautiful long veil. They add softness, romance and elegance, and because they spread out on the floor, they actually become sheerer, and show more of the back of the dress, than a short veil whose layers tend to hang all together in a bunch.
How Long Is A Chapel Length Veil?
Our chapel length veils are 96 inches from top to bottom on a single layer veil, and 126 inches combined length on a two-layer veil. Browse through our gorgeous collections, and don’t forget you can also “build” your own veil via our Custom Veil Designer section.
* Chapel length veils may sometimes be referred to as church length veils.
Should I Get A Chapel Length Veil?
We’ve tried to weigh up all the pros and cons of having a long veil vs a short one in our long veil section. We admit to being slightly biased — we do love a long veil! — and they certainly are very popular. Check out what we have to say about them via the link above.
