History of the Wedding Veil

The veil is one of the oldest parts of a bridal look, dating as far back as Greek and Roman times, to hide a bride "from evil spirits who might want to thwart her happiness" or to frighten the spirits away.

The veil also served to hide the bride's face from the groom prior to the wedding, as superstition says that it is bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the ceremony.

As weddings became more religious ceremonies in Western culture, the veil was used to symbolize modesty before God, obedience, and when the veil was white, chastity. By the 17th and 18th century, bridal veils were occasionally worn, but were generally out of fashion in Britain and North America, with brides choosing from many other options instead.

However, the bridal veil returned to popularity after Queen Victoria wore a veil in her wedding to Prince Albert in 1840. The bridal veil became a status symbol during the Victorian era, and the weight, length, and quality of the veil indicated the bride's social status.

What is a Blusher Veil?

The veil can have many different lengths. Which veil you choose depends entirely on the style of your dress and what you like. However, one aspect of the veil, you may or may not use it as part of your veil, is the tulle veil that covers your face when you walk down the aisle. The part that falls on your face is called blusher.

The veil symbolizes modesty and obedience. In many religions, it is seen as a sign of respect for women covering their heads. When wearing a white wedding dress to symbolize chastity, the white veil comes with it.

Some brides find it a very outdated, while others find that wearing a veil with blusher makes them feel more like a bride. I personally will choose to have blusher because I love the solemn moment the veil is lifted by the groom.
