I’ve learned a lot about veils in the last hour and came across this:


  To determine the total length for your drop veil – select a spot on your head where you believe you’ll place the comb or pin the veil in.  Make sure to allow a few extra inches in the front or back if you plan to place the pin/comb over or under a high updo.  Place a string or ribbon at this spot on your head, and let the string fall over the front of your face.  Do not pull it taught.  Measure this length out on a ruler – this is your Front Blusher Length.  Then take a string from the same spot on your head and let it fall down to where you’d like the veil to end in the back.  This works best to actually wear your gown while you measure.  Measure this length out on a ruler as well – without pulling it taught.  This length will be the back length for your drop veil.  Next, add the front blusher length and the back length together to get the Total length for your Drop Veil.

A blusher can be any length from just under your chin to all the way to the floor! (Generally not long enough to trip over, though.)


Mine is going to be shorter than I wanted (chin… not waist).
