What makes a veil fly?
As your wedding photographer, I feel that it’s my duty to let you know that not all veils have equal flying power! It’s true! Some veils do not fly! It’s actually very disappointing for a bride to realize on her wedding day that it’s impossible to capture the “flying veil” shot she always dreamed of because she selected a veil that has too much detail and is too heavy to fly! So, if a flying veil shot is very important to you, here are some tips for selecting a veil that can easily go airborne and is extra photogenic!
- Avoid heavy beading and details that weigh down your veil if you want it to “fly”.
- One layer is best!
- Fine tulle flies more freely. Stiff tulle is a little more rigid.
