The veil, whether classic or modern, romantic, long or short, is an indispensable accessory for the bride’s look. Bringing the veil to the altar symbolically represents virginity. The veil of the bride prevailed in ancient times to hide the bride from the evil spirits who wanted to hurt the young couple. Afterward, the brides were covered with veils that symbolized their purity. In other cultures, the veil was taken to completely hide the face of the bride from a boyfriend who had never seen her. He was only allowed to lift the veil to see the face of his wife after the ceremony. But today the veil is reborn and has renovated to represent current fashion trends.
The choice of the type of veil should be adapted to the personality of the bride and the way she decides to wear it; classic and light, with or without embroidery, lace, floral motifs, short or cathedral etc. The important thing is that the bride is comfortable with the veil she wants to wear the day of her ceremony. When choosing the veil fabric, the best options are very soft tulle or nylon. These fabrics have a perfect fall and do not give an exaggerated volume. In addition, they show an incomparable transparency and allow to be personalized with embroideries, crystals, ribbons, satins, among others.
Organza is not advisable since the weave of the fabric is very heavy and is a little opaque. The same thing happens with lace, moreover, that it has no body. Ideally, the veil should provide soft transparencies, gently cover the hairstyle and slightly hide the bride’s face. The way to wear the veil is very varied, can go to the center of the head, subject and pucker in the top of it, can be hooked in the lower part of the head on a pickup or low hairstyle and hold it with some kind of brooch, comb or pin. It depends on the hairstyle worn by the bride and headdress she wears that day.
It can also be accompanied by a wreath of natural flowers or a beautiful tiara or diadem, thus enhancing the beauty of the future wife. It is important that the bride practices several times how to remove the veil from the face and how you are going to remove it to avoid damaging the hairstyle. Like long-tail suits, wearing the veil is not mandatory either. Can be replaced by some other accessory.
