A wedding is one of the most important days of a woman's life, and you want everything to be perfect, from the gown to the cake to the veil. If you have an oval face, you are lucky: Just about any style of veil looks good on you.
Determining Your Face Shape
Oval is one of the most common face shapes. To determine your face shape, pull your hair away from your face and look in the mirror. An oval face tends to be slightly longer than wide and have soft, curved edges. In other words, it is oval.
Doing Your Hair
If you have an oval face, you have virtually unlimited choices for your hairstyle, according to the website theknot. You can wear your hair up or down, straight or curly. If you have a strong idea about your hair, that can influence you choice of veil. When you try on veils, fix your hair the way you plan to wear it on your big day.
Types of Veils
Veils come in several lengths and widths. You can wear a veil that is very short, shoulder length, elbow length, fingertip length or floor length. Occasionally the veil is longer than the floor, creating a train. You also can buy a veil that is 54, 72 or 108 inches wide. The veil can cover your face or not. When you choose your dress, it might have a matching or coordinating veil.
Try it On
Try on veils and wedding dresses together. Consider the venue for your wedding -- a veil with a train is probably a bad choice for a sandy beach, and a short, sassy veil might look odd at a formal wedding. Also, even though your oval face means you can wear almost any style of veil, make sure that your veil does not obscure or overwhelm your face, especially if your face is small and delicate.
