The style of cut, as with your choice of gather, will determine the overall look to your custom made veil.  The standard cut is very popular as it creates that traditional veil style.  Have a look at the sketches and photos below to help you choose your style of cut.

Oval Cut

This style of cut has fairly straight sides with a slight curve towards the bottom corners.  Available in all widths, tiers and lengths. 

 

Standard Cut

A very popular cut and therefore considered to be the Standard Cut.  The sides gradually curve towards the bottom edging, creating a horseshoe shape.  This cut will create more cascades than the Oval Cut.  Available in all widths, tiers and lengths.

 

Cascade Cut

This cut creates a beautiful cascading effect.  To create these cascades a veil really needs to be 72" or 108" wide and will work better on the longer length veils.  Cascades will start to form higher up the veil, hence this being more suitable to the longer veils.  Available in 72" and 108" width.   A 1 tier will show off the cascading effect better than a 2 tier and will work better in anything from a Fingertip Length and longer.

 
 
Angel Cut

This cut is similar to the Cascade Cut but more defined and sharper towards the centre back which tapers into a soft, rounded point.  Like the Cascade Veil this cut is better suited to the longer veils such as the Fingertip Length and longer.

An edge finish will definitely make this distinctive cut stand out.  Available in 72" and 108" width.  A 1 tier will show off the cascading effect better than a 2 tier and will work better in anything from a Fingertip Length and longer.  

 

 

Circular Cut

This type of cut allows you to determine your own tier lengths by repositioning the veil to your own choice.  It is ungathered and lays flat against the head so therefore not attached to a comb.  Veil is held in place by using a hair/hat pin.  For lengths of 50", 70" and 90" this is cut as a complete circle.  For lengths of 110", 130" and 150" the cut is slightly more oval shape.  Available in 50", 70" & 90"  widths as a complete circle or 110", 130" & 150" widths as a slightly more oval shape. This cut is better suited to a 1 tier veil as it will emphasize the cut and shape.

Flare Cut

This A shape cut veil will have less gathers onto the comb.  The veil has ample fullness and with a great deal of swing at the bottom of the veil.  Available in all widths, tiers and lengths but a wider width and a longer length will create more "swing" to the bottom of the veil.
