This is the most popular length; it’s flattering to nearly every figure type and goes well with most silhouettes.
Falls anywhere between knee and ankle.
Considered formal. Extends about two feet beyond the hemline.
The most formal veil. Extends three feet or more beyond the hem (you have to be careful because it’s easy for anyone to step on it).
Two layers. Typically the shorter one’s a blusher, but not always.
Typically, tulle rules the roost — though chiffon, silk gauze and different types of nettings are also popular. It is majorly up to bride’s decision considering the style/silhouette of her dress
