Shoulder Length Veils
Here’s our collection of shoulder length veils. We don’t have a huge range in this length as it’s not often requested but don’t worry. You can always create your own shoulder length veil just how you’d like it with our unique Custom Veil Designer tool.
How Long Is A Shoulder Length Veil?
Shoulder length veils are the shortest length of veil at just 20 inches long for a single layer, and 38 inches combined length for a two-layer version. They really are too cute for words. As the blusher is only 18 inches long it’s not really suitable for wearing over the face, but a second layer will and fullness and volume which is great for a retro look as mentioned below.
Who Should Get A Shoulder Length Veil?
Shoulder length veils are ideal for brides who just want a token nod at tradition; just a little bit of something in the hair that will mostly stay tucked behind the head. These short and sweet veils are perfect as they end just at the top of your dress. If you’re into the retro look, a shoulder length veil is perfect. Pop it right behind your tiara/headband to get the most 50s/60s vibe. They also look amazing with a vintage tea-length dress!
Things To Consider When Ordering A Shoulder Length Veil
As we mentioned, they’re not really long enough to wear the blusher layer over the face, even if you select a two-layer option. Particularly as nowadays most brides wear their veil at the back of the head so there’s just not enough length there to reach further than just under the chin — which is not a very popular look at the moment. They also don’t flow quite as much as the longer veils like waist or hip length. They’re more…fluffy. Which, as we said, is great for a vintage look.
