Christian Wedding Veils To Suit Your Face Shape

By  | 

A Christian bride would feel rather incomplete without a flowing wedding veil to complement her white gown and with so many dazzling choices to choose from, it’s no wonder that veils come in all sorts of shapes and sizes these days. So, how should you choose your wedding veil? Should you go by a design that you like or go in for something that’s trendy? We suggest going with a veil that brings out the best in your face features and which looks great on you. Let’s take a look at a few of the face shapes that can be spotted on Christian brides:

Oval Shape

An oval face can be easily pointed out due to the presence of high cheekbones and a narrow chin. An oval face tends to be slightly longer and has soft edges. If you have an oval face, consider yourself lucky because it means that you have perfectly symmetrical features and the right wedding veil which complements your gown and neckline will look simply outstanding on you.

Oblong Shape

Simply put, a bride with an oblong face will have more length and the best way to add a bit of width to the face would be to go with a wedding veil which can be worn with a tiara or a wreath. Avoid hairstyles like the beehive or even putting up your hair on top of the head as this will only add to the face length and not reduce it.

Heart Shape

True to its name, a bride with a heart shape face, will have wide dimensions at the temple, eyes and cheek area whereas she will have a narrow chin. The best wedding veil option to choose from is a back piece with the hair worn in a neat chignon. This look helps to add more width to the jawline.

Rectangle Shape

A face that is rectangular in shape is longer as opposed to being wide and brides with this kind of face will look gorgeous with more voluminous wedding veils. When worn with a side swept hairstyle, the final look is simply astounding.

Round Shape

Many people assume that having a round face means that a person is fat. On the other hand, if one were to take the nose as the centre-point, it will be noticed that such a face is both wide and long. One of the best ways in which you can make your face appear narrower if you have a round face, is to go with a wedding veil that falls on either side of your face. In fact, having the right hairstyle such as keeping your hair loose with just a few pins to hold it up at the back, can also make your face look softer.

Square Shape

A square shaped face has a very prominent chin and a strong jawline. One of the best ways to add a gentle look of femininity to such a face would be to let a few curls hang loose by the side of the face. Instead of going with a short veil, a long sweeping wedding veil will do perfect justice to the jawline without spoiling the overall look.
