We get asked this question a lot so thought we would write a handy little post!
The position that you wear your veil in your hair will dramatically alter how the veil looks.
High on the head
The higher you wear the veil the more full it will look. If you would like your veil to drape over your shoulders then it is more likely to stay in place if you position the veil high in your hair. If you are wearing a veil with a blusher it is important to wear the veil high up on your head so that the blusher is long enough.

Slope of the head
This is a good midway option as you will get a subtle halo from the veil and it won't take over your look. This is the perfect position if you would like to wear an accessory over your veil to help hold it in place.

The nape of your neck
This is the subtlest option for wearing a veil as the veil tends to fall straight down the back and is not very visible from the front. We have seen a few brides wearing their veil below a bun which is lovely.
