Build Your Own Custom Wedding Veil Online
The Custom Veil Designer is our online veil builder tool that gives you full control when designing your own wedding veil. It’s something unique to us here at The Wedding Veil Shop, and something we’re very proud of.
It allows our lovely brides to get creative and design or “build” their own custom wedding veil exactly how they’d like it in just a few clicks. All you need to do is decide on a few things, starting with the length and number of layers you’d like.
You can also just use this section to play around with different quotes. For example, if you have a strict budget in mind for your veil, then using the Custom Veil Designer can make it much easier to control the costs as you can see clearly which elements affect the cost of the veil when you design it yourself. After you’ve made all your selections, a price will appear instantly on the screen at the bottom. If you’re happy with everything, you can pop it in your basket and order it!

We offer nine traditional lengths in two layer options for our custom veils. The most popular lengths are waist, fingertip and chapel. If you’re unsure on what length would fit best with your dress, be sure to check out our Veil Length Guide, or give us a call.
The gathering changes the shape at the top of a two layer veil. The most popular option here is centre gathering, but for a more detailed explanation on all three styles, read our guide here: Gathering styles
The width of a veil plays a vital role in its overall look so it’s great that you have full control over this aspect when building your custom veil. If you’re having a short veil, it can be the difference between a full, voluminous look, and a sleek, narrow column. For long veils, you may need to consider the width of your dress’ train. A wide train with a skinny veil can look a little contrasting.

Next up is colour. Our most popular colour is Light Ivory. That’s because 99% of today’s dresses are a pale ivory shade. A common mistake we see a lot is brides assuming their dress is white because it’s such a pale colour. But, nine times out of ten it will be ivory and so an arctic white veil would actually look way too harsh. Read our colour guide here: Veil Colours
If you’re still unsure on colour, be sure to order one of our fabric sample packs. This is especially important if ordering a custom veil as bespoke items are non-returnable.
Next up is edge finish. Obviously, this is more of a personal preference thing than something you could get right or wrong, but still, we have a guide explaining all the different options available here: Edge Finish Guide
All edges are available in the White to Ivory range, and a selection is available in Oyster, Blush Pink and Champagne. As you work your way through the Custom Veil Designer, it will automatically filter out the edges that aren’t available in your chosen colour by fading them out and making them unclickable.
The final choice you need to make is beading. To bead, or not to bead, that is the question! Again, this is personal preference and will depend on your dress and the edge trim you’ve selected, but for a break down of the Custom Veil Designer’s bead and layout options, check out our Beading Guide and Beading Layout Options page.
