Ever since I watched ‘Bride Wars’ I have been obsessed by Liv Lerner’s veil! I love how it sits at the top of her head and has lots of volume, rather than lying flat to the head. I also love how it sits around her face. To show what I mean, here’s a pic..
Chelsea Clinton also wore hers the same way..
Now I know they are both Vera Wang brides, I know they are both wearing white two-tier cathedral length veils, but my question is, does anyone know if this would be tulle, or silk? A lot of the silk veils I tried don’t have a lot of volume, so I think it’s probably tulle I’m looking for. Has anyone got a similar veil? I’m in the UK, so ideally need to find a UK seller, or someone who can ship. Thanks for your help, bees!

Chelsea Clinton wore a drop veil with gathering. I know, because I had mine made to look like hers. I think it just frames their face like that, because they wore it high on their head. I think Kate Hudson’s veil is only one tier.

Sorry, but what’s a drop veil? I know I sound really stupid.

A drop veil is simply a large piece of tulle that has essentially been dropped on the top of your head and you secure it with either a hatpin or a comb that’s been stitched to the tulle. Chelsea Clinton’s veil had some gathering at the comb but a drop veil doesn’t usually have gathering.
The veil from Bride Wars is tulle that is gathered and stitched to a comb – it’s looks like it’s at least 72″ wide and that’s where all the volume is coming from, also that the veil is sitting very far forward on her head and the high poufy hairstyle is playing into it too.
