Must Brides Wear Veils?

wedding veilsWedding veils were once donned as protection from evil spirits. In more recent times, the veil has symbolized chastity, and, like the casual wedding dress, festivity and fun.

Whether or not you wear a veil is up to you, as there are no longer strict rules regarding the accessory. It does help to understand the etiquette, especially if you are having a formal ceremony, or are worried about what great-grandmother might think. While once taboo to wear a veil for a second marriage, that rule no longer applies. However, it’s common to forgo the Cathedral-length wedding veils, which go down to the floor and are associated with virginity and first-time marriage, in favor of something shorter, like a Blusher, which covers only the bride’s face. Another popular option for all brides is the Flyaway, which ends at the shoulder. Fingertip veils end, you guessed it, just above the fingers.

Should you decide to wear a veil, make sure any ornamentation starts below the detailing on the unique wedding dress with sheer jewel neck, they don’t compete for attention and don’t clash.
