To the uninitiated, veil color seems a non-issue: white. In reality, the choice is much more involved. White is actually one of several colors: pure white, winter white, and ivory. Each white has its own variations, but you needn’t match your dress perfectly. If you do vary the color, most experts recommend wearing a veil a shade or two lighter than the gown for a put-together look:
– Pure white: This is the true “stark” or bright white with no tinting.
– Winter white: This shade has a different name depending on the material or designer: diamond, winter, off-white, or light ivory. Whatever the name, it is a soft white, between pure white and ivory in color.
– Ivory veil color: Ivory is an off-white, yellow-tinted hue. Variations range from light eggshell to a cream color.
