Wedding veil with wedding dress

Nothing beats the dramatic entrance of a bride wearing a veil when walking down the aisle. Veils are the iconic bridal accessories that add a touch of magic and whimsy to the overall look and they have to flawlessly match the style of the wedding gown. However, veils come in a variety of lengths and styles, and how do you decide which one is the right one for you and your wedding dress as well? Or do you want a wedding veil at all?

To veil or not to veil?

This totally depends on your personal style and your wishes. Some brides love them, some brides really do not want a veil and find it too traditional. So feel free to choose what you want and not what is expected of you.


For those brides who love to wear a veil, follow these tips to ace your veiled look on your big day.

What veil to match your beaded or lace wedding dress?

When you have a beaded or lace gown, try to minimize your veil so that the gown and the veil don’t clash or that the veil takes the spotlight away from the gown. A soft tulle or silk veil that makes the gown shine through it, is always a great option. In case you like a touch of detail, you could go for a detailed rim on the edge of the veil.

And what about minimalistic wedding dresses?

Wearing a minimalistic wedding dress gives you the room to either have a simple veil or to really go all out with a fully beaded, pearl or lace veil to give that extra dimension to your look. Multiple layers are also a great option if you like to create volume.

Which length to choose?

Always wear a veil that is longer than the train of your gown or opt for a short fintertip veil. When you have a veil that falls in your train, the veil

tends to get a bit lost and create a chaotic look from the back. Next to that, long veils tend to make your look more romantic and short veils give more of a playfull touch.

Fabric choices


The best veil fabric is to match it with the fabric of your dress. Do you have tulle in your dress, choose a veil made out of tulle. Do you have a lace dress and want to have a touch of lace in your dress, try to match the lace, ideally the exact same lace. Most designers love to make a matchting veil for your dress, so always ask what the possibilities are.

Blusher veil or no?

A blusher veil creates that more traditioal look, yet also makes it really romantic and a bit mysterious. When choosing a blusher veil make sure there are no embelishments or lace details in front of your eyes.

3 photos of brides in wedding dresses with unique detaild

Have you ever wondered why the leadtimes of wedding dresses are so long? We have had the question asked multiple times from our brides. We will be explaining the why in this blog post but also the reason why there can be such a difference in leadtimes between different designers and brands.

The big why

The creation of wedding dresses is a highly specialized skill. Unlike your everyday clothing wedding dresses are (usually) made to measure and fully tailored to your body measurements. And this is one of the main reasons why the leadtimes of wedding dresses can take so long. Making sure your wedding dress fits and hugs your body in all the right places is a skill on its own and much time is taken into account to make sure your wedding dress is made exactly in the right fit for you. For example, when you take two brides with the same body shape, let’s say a pear shape, the exact measurements and proportions of the brides do still differ.

Another reason for longer leadtimes is the handwork of embellishments and details. All designers do their best to make the most unique, most special and most amazing designs, and they do so by making fabrics by hand but also by combining different fabrics and hand sowing beads and lace details on the gowns. And that takes time.

Why do leadtimes of wedding dresses differ per designer/brand?

Some designers take 9 months to create wedding dresses, other can do it within 8 weeks. We can imagine that brides ask themselves the question, why the difference.

It all has to do with how the designers have organized their production. On a general level we can make a distinction between two ways of creating and producing wedding dresses.

  1. Hand made / Made to Measure

    Many luxury and couture designers choose the create their wedding dresses by hand. All the reasons we listed for the Big Why in the previous paragraph are relevant to this type of production. A great benefit of hand made wedding dresses is that the gowns fit better and that brides can ask for customizations to their wedding dresses.

  2. Wholesale production

    Wholesale production is where wedding dresses are made in larger factories, which enables designer to decrease their production costs, lower their prices and shorten the leadtimes.

Wedding dress Trunk Shows have many benefits for brides. Let us explain what they are, why they are organized and of course the important benefits.

See all our Trunk Shows

What is a trunk show?

Trunk Shows! You may have seen these words pop up on Instagram, bridal boutique websites or from fellow brides to be. The words ‘Trunk Shows’ themselves do not usually give an instant explanation of what a Trunk Show actually is. Let us explain, because these Trunk Shows are definitely worth visiting!

A Trunk Show is an event in a bridal boutique, where the whole new collection of a bridal designer is available for you to try on in the bridal boutique where the Trunk Show is being organized.

Best thing! Trunk Shows come with great discounts and offers.


Why are Trunk Shows organized?

Bridal boutiques often have a selection of dresses from a designer and almost never the whole collection. Boutiques choose those dresses, they feel, that fit their brides the best. Trunk Shows are a great way for the bridal boutique to show the whole collection of a designer to their brides.

And for brides it means they have more gowns to try on or see those specific gowns they love from a designer that the bridal boutique does not carry on a regular basis.


How long do Trunk Shows take?

Trunk Shows are organized for a long-weekend or a whole week. The bridal boutique will have the exact dates on their websites/socials.


  • Discounts & offers

    During a Trunk Show bridal boutiques usually offer 5-10% discount on the Trunk Show gowns and often times also on their accessories.

  • More gowns

    Because the whole new collection is in the showroom, you have more gowns to try on from your favorite designers.

  • Favorite gowns

    Do you love a gown from a designer but the bridal boutique in your country does not carry it? During the Trunk Show you will have the chance to see your favorite gown. Is your favorite gown from a previous collection, check with the bridal boutique if they can ask the designer to ship that specific gown with the Trunk Show gowns as well.


    Most bridal boutique offer great extra’s during the Trunk Shows. At Keep Its Find Bridal we always have delicious cocktails and gift bags with great bridal goodies to bring home with you.


We have some really exciting wedding dress Trunk Shows organized this year. You can check out which ones, their dates, discount information and which dresses will be there, on our website: See all our Trunk Shows


We hope to see you soon during on of our trunk shows!

Advantages of long sleeves

  1. Season adjustable: Long sleeve wedding dresses are perfect for spring, autumn and winter weddings as they give extra warmth. BUT, summer brides can still go for a long sleeves if they love them, by choosing the right fabric.

bride wearing one off shoulder wedding dress

Which wedding dresses matches which bodytypes?  A question almost every bride asks herself, and one we get asked quite often. We have written out the basics for you in this blog.

But first things first…

‘I never expected this dress to look so good on me’,

‘I actually thought I wanted a complete different wedding dress’,

‘I would have never chosen this wedding dress myself’.

Many brides have a specific vision of what types and shapes of wedding dresses would look good on them and their bodytypes. Sometimes they believe certain gowns are off limits for them. The interesting thing is that many brides also say yes to a complete different dress than they had in mind, and one they never would have picked out of the racks themselves.

The reasons for this are the following:

  1. Wedding dresses are made to measure, completely fitted to the bride her measurements. Because of this, assets can be accentuated and places a bride wants to hide can be hidden.
  2. Wedding dresses are specifically made to be comfortable, supportive and shaping. Making the shape look really different than normal clothing does.
  3. Wedding dresses look completely different on a hanger than when put on.

Therefore we advice each bride to try on different styles and specifically shapes of wedding dresses with their bodytypes, they might surprise you.

The Basics

There are some basic guidelines to which wedding dresses match well with certain bodytypes. But as each and every body is different (even if they have the same global bodytype), definitely try on different shapes as well.

The Ballgown shape

Everyone knows the traditional princess ballgown dresses. A fitted top with a big and voluminous skirt.

Great for:

  • Peer shaped bodytpes, where the emphasis is on the hips. The ballgown shape will accentuate your waist and hide your hips, creating a beautiful hour shaped figure.
  • Petit brides. Are you petit and would like to create some curves and volume? The ballgown is a great option to do so as you will accentuate your waist, while the big skirt creates the curves.
  • Large cup sizes. With a large cup size and an accentuated waist, you will create a beautiful hour-shaped figure.

Avoid when:

  • You are really petit and the skirt of the ballgown is extremely big. The volume of the skirt can create unbalance and overwhelm you.

A true modern version of a ballgown is our  Love In Portofino wedding dress from J’Andreatta

voorbeeld van een ballgown trouwjurk

The A-Line wedding dress

An A-line wedding dress also has a fitted top with a loose and bigger skirt. The difference with an ballgown is that the A-line shape has a more delicate and less poofy skirt. They follow the shape of an A.

Great for:

  • Larger cup sizes. The A-line wedding dresses also create a beautiful balance when you have a larger cupsize, as the skirt is flowy and not fitted.
  • Petit brides. To create some volume as with a ballgown.
  • Wide hips. We love curves and we love it when brides like to show them as well. But some brides would like to hide their hips, then an A-line gown is a great option that is not too overwhelming.
  • Broad shoulders. Do you have broad shoulders? The A-line shape will give you a hour-shaped figure as it emphasizes your waist and then flows out again. Broad shoulders, small waist and a flared skirt!
  • Brides who want to look longer. Do you want to add some length? An A-line shape is the shape to do so, this is because of the ‘A’ line it follows.

Avoid when:

  • Actually an A-Line wedding dress is perfect for all bodytpes.

To create a stunning hour-shaped figure, try out this amazing A-Line wedding dress Bentleigh van Georgia Young Couture.

Voorbeeld van een A-Line trouwjurk

The Flit & Flare wedding dress

A Flit & Flare wedding dress is a subtle version of the A-Line shape. The Fit & Flare has a longer fitted top and flares out at your hips.

Great for:

  • Short and petit brides. If you are small and a little shorter (just like many of us), the Fit & Flare is a great option. The fitted top and the delicate flaring skirt add length, while still creating a subtle hint of curves.
  • Hour-shaped brides. Are you blessed with beautiful curves, show them off! The Fit & Flare will accentuate your waist and at the same time show off your hips.

Avoid when:

  • You have an athletic body. A Fit & Flare wedding dress can give you the feeling of having a squared shape.
  • You have a pear bodyshape with small shoulders. Because the Fit & Flare will (delicately) accentuate your hips, it will create an unbalance if you have a pear shaped bodytype that already has the emphasis on its hips.


The Harriett from Vagabond Bridal has a Fit & Flare shape.

Voorbeeld Fit & Flare trouwjurk

The Sheath wedding dress

A sheath wedding dress is completely fitted and figure hugging.

Great for:

  • Brides who want to look longer. When you are petit and would like to add some length to your look, a sheath gown is perfect because it is completely fitted all the way through without any interruptions.
  • Small brides. When you are small you can definitely rock a sheath dress
  • Athletic bodytypes. Sheat wedding dresses hugg your body, accentuating your curves.

Avoid when:

  • You have a pear shaped body type, this completely fitted shape can create some unbalance.


Our Ivy gown from Vered Vaknin Bridal is an example of a Sheat wedding dress.

Voorbeeld Sheat trouwjurk

The Mermaid / The Trumpet wedding dress

A fitted silhouette with a flared skirt below your knee. Yes, those are called the Mermaid and the Trumput. The Mermaid has a voluminous skirt, while the Trumput has a more subtile flair. A shape that has been created to really accentuate your curves.

Like our Madison gown van Georgia Young Couture.

Great for:

  • Curvy brides. Show them off! The Mermaid and the Trumpet shapes accentuate your beautiful curves, especially for the hour-shaped brides.
  • Petit brides. Petit brides can create some more curves with this model, as the skirt flares out at your knees, making your hips look more rounded.
  • Tall brides. Are you tall and do not want to look any taller? This model is a perfect option. The flaring skirt at the knees brakes your length.

Avoid when:

  • You do not feel comfortable showing of your curves.
