Wedding Veils: The Difference Between a Drop Veil Blusher and No Blusher

Lace mantilla veil without blusher

If you’ve decided on the perfect mantilla for your dress, you’re half way done! The next step is to select whether you will be wearing a drop veil blusher or no blusher at all. There’s always a lot of uncertainty or questions surrounding this step, so here is a quick rundown on what a drop veil blusher is, how to wear it, and whether or not you should have one.

What is a drop veil blusher?

A blusher is the portion of the veil that drapes over the face. A drop veil is a style of blusher and refers to how the comb is sewn to the veil. The attached hair comb is sewn flat so that there is no volume. It will sit flat when draped over your head. If you loved Kate Middleton wedding veil then a drop veil is perfect for you!

How to wear a drop veil

With a blusher, you’ll get more style choices. Blushers can be worn over the face, as is tradition. They can also be worn pulled back, away from the face as you walk down the aisle. This will give you a nice 2-tier layered look from the back. If you purchase a veil from The Mantilla Company, a comb will already be attached for you. Bear in mind that you will not be able to remove the blusher.

What is the difference between a drop veil blusher and no blusher?

As mentioned above, if you choose a blusher, it will be in the style of a drop veil. If you prefer a single layered look, the no blusher option is the best choice for you. Wearing no blusher means that the veil will drape over the head and fall along the sides of your face. This style choice is considered a traditional Spanish look and will really showcase the lace on the mantilla as it will be lying against your hair. Like the blusher option, a comb will also be attached to the no blusher option.

    Good day
    I want to order a veil but it says the blusher is that an additional veil or is it a drop veil that has been bent over. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated :)
