What Makes a Veil Fly???

March 16, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

I often get asked if shots like this one are real...and it most definitely is!  However, as a wedding photographer I feel it's my duty to let you know that not all veils have the same flying power...and some veils do not fly.    If a flying veil shot is important to you read on for some tips for selecting a veil so we can capture that "flying veil" shot you've always dreamed of.

1.  Avoid Heavy Details - heavy details and beading are beautiful but they do weigh down your veil.

2.  One Layer is Best - multiple layers of tulle can be hard to toss.

3.  Fine tulle flies more freely!

4.  If in doubt...test it out before you make your final selection! I find it's best not to totally toss the veil up, but rather have someone reach it up as high as possible, then just a gentle toss from there.

* Morgan's veil could not have been more perfect.  It was a single layer of beautiful, light-weight tulle and the light beading all the way around gave it just the right amount of weight to fall evenly and beautifully.
