I’ve watched wedding shows, reception shows. I don’t understand the whole concept of a bride going through the trouble of finding the perfect veil to go with their dress. Then when they walk down the isle, it’s not even over their face for their husband to be to have to move it before he kisses his bride.
So what’s the sense in a veil, if it’s not over your face?
If the bride’s face could not be seen, spirits and evildoers would not be tempted to steal her way. Other superstitions involve the bride not seeing herself in both her gown and veil before the wedding, or bad luck with follow. Wearing the veil of a happily married woman is considered a way to ensure a joyful marriage.
Other Considerations: The bride’s face was not revealed until the marriage was complete, in order to prevent the groom from backing out of the arrangement

I think it’s just tradition now. I probably will wear one for the ceremony and take it off for the reception.

I also think it’s just tradition. For me, it was kind of the icing on the cake for my wedding gown. I didn’t really spend much time picking one out though… I went with one of the first ones that they brought over to me 🙂

Some of my relatives that have recently got married said ” It is YOUR wedding, You do what YOU BOTH want!” hmmm….My mom is going to be making my veil anyways…she’s super excited. We haven’t gone dress shopping or anything like that. I’m in the process of looking for a venue. on a 5,000 budget in a High Cost of living area. What fun.
