Wedding Veils – History
Wedding veils date back for centuries. Their significance, although shifted over time, holds a special meaning to many. In the olden days, the lifting of the veil meant presenting the virgin bride to her husband. The bride would wear her hair down and flowing down her back to symbolize virginity and purity. Nowadays, the veil is used more as a symbol of beauty. When the veil is lifted, the bride in all of her magnificince is revealed to her groom and to the wedding guests. They are very fashionable and came tie together a wedding ensemble. Take a look at a few different style veils that we suggest for your big day!
Wedding Veils – Cascading
These long, cascading veils (both above and below) are a classic choice for your wedding day. They are very long and flowing, symbolizing the brides virginity (more so in the olden days). They are perfect for covering your face to later reveal your beauty to your groom. They also add elegance to your whole wedding day ensemble and create mystery… Who is the beautiful bride behind the veil? These veils can be worn with any style of dress and with your hair up or down.
Wedding Veils – Fine Mesh
Fine mesh veils are a unique choice for your big day. Although they do no cover the face, they add a touch of class and fashion. They are a good choice for people who do not want their faces covered and who do not want to deal with flipping it over your head for your wedding kiss. Although not traditional, they are very trendy.
Wedding Veils – Black
Looking to spice things up a bit? A black veil is the perfect way to do so! Perfect for both the ceremony and the reception, black veils are trendy and draw attention to the brides face. Black looks good with any complexion and adds even more mystery than a simple white veil would. Although unconventional, they add some flair.
White trim around your wedding veil is timeless. Although it doesn’t match with every style of dress (anything with an intricate pattern would clash), against the right dress it’s beautiful.
Wedding Veils – Flower Girls
Did you know that flower girls can wear veils too? It is such a fun way for the flower girls to feel involved and to make believe it’s their big day too! Flower girls want to be just as beautiful as the bride (I know from experience!) so dressing them in a veil is a way to make them feel like a princess walking down the aisle.
