A veil is one of the most important attributes of a wedding, the wearing of which has a sacred meaning. The girl is choosing this accessory to emphasize her innocence and integrity. Some refuse it according to fashion trends but most brides prefer to follow this old tradition. Unlike the ancient models of this decoration, the modern veil takes various forms and sizes.

The wedding is one of the most significant days in the life of every woman, that leaves pleasant memories and many photos. Therefore, each of us tries to look as attractive as possible for our wedding photography. A beautiful veil will always complement and adorn the already beautiful appearance of the bride.

Meaning of the veil back in the day and now

The history of the wedding veil is rooted in the past. Many centuries ago, a bride was completely covered with the veil and the groom was not supposed to see her before the wedding. This was because the bride was considered "dead" until the souls of men and women are united before God. Up to this point, it was forbidden to look at her. It was a bad omen to let someone else put a veil on the bride. It was believed that this could ruin the new family. The veil was used as protection against the evil eye and from dark forces. 

The worldview of people has changed a lot, but the veil is still one of the most important elements of the wedding ceremony. The image of a bride with a veil still symbolizes purity, tenderness, and innocence.

It is traditionally accepted that the bride who puts on a wedding dress for the first time in her life should wear a veil. This tradition doesn’t apply to women who marry repeatedly. Because when marrying a second time, the woman no longer embodies the girlish innocence. Is it obligatory to wear a veil for a wedding? Each girl answers this question herself. There are no strict rules. But girls still choose the veil, not only as a tribute to traditions but also as an indispensable attribute of an elegant and slightly mysterious image of the bride.

Which veil to choose?

The veil is a traditional wedding attribute. And although in the last couple of years it has strongly lost its position (jewelry for hair has come into fashion), many brides cannot imagine themselves without a veil. Like any accessory, the veil should go well with the dress, appearance, and image of the bride as a whole. So how to choose the perfect veil?

How to choose a veil to the face type and figure:

  • A long veil is suitable for round face shape. If you have a round face, it is better to avoid wide and lush varients.
  • Long styles will also help to align the proportions of the square shape of the face. And round and cascading veils will soften facial features.
  • Brides with a rectangular (elongated) face type should choose a fluffy and a short veil model.
  • As you know, everything suits oval faces. But it is better to avoid excessive pomp and width of the veil to maintain the correct proportions.
  • Girls with large breasts or tummy should stop at a veil up to the tips of the fingers and below. Such an accessory will visually “stretch” the figure.
  • Brides with a pear-shaped figure will look great with a veil that has a length not lower than the waist to balance proportions.
  • Girls with magnificent forms may choose narrow single-tier models to avoid additional volume. At the same time, tall plus size brides can afford long styles. 

The bride may choose a veil based on the decoration, style, and length of the dress. The bride's height also matters because a short fluffy veil “shortens” and a long one makes her taller and slimmer. Any options are suitable for the usual marriage procedure, but a long veil covering the shoulders and face is perfect for the wedding in the church. Each bride can find decoration to taste that emphasizes her tenderness and beauty.
