It’s the part of the veil that comes over your face.  Usually people wear a two-tier veil with the blusher part in front of their face.

Maybe this will help?


Q. I keep hearing the term “blusher.” What is that?

A. A blusher is the shorter tier of a veil that falls in front of the face and is worn when walking down the aisle. Typically the bride’s father lifts the blusher layer and folds it back over the longer one at the end of the processional. Many brides wear a blusher simply because it adds to the drama of the wedding, then opt to detach it for the reception. Some religious ceremonies require a blusher, so check with your officiant.

Well it’s something I’m not wearing ( because I am an encore bride) and it’s usually reserved for first time brides to be and I did it before btw at my wedding to the x.  And I’m not wearin’ white either!   So for me, some aspects of tradition are tossed out the  proverbial window!  But if I were marrying the first time, I just might do it!  They are beautiful when worn (and executed) properly! 

The blusher is imho, traditional, and while I love it, I think it is something that’s up to the bride if it’s worn or not these days.  Totally up to you. 

It is the part of the veil that covers your face.  You walk down the aisle and when you greet your groom, he lifts the veil covering your gorgeous face up!  Now he can smooch ya!

Blushers came about originally when weddings were arranged.  The blusher was lifted off after the vows, when it was too late for the groom to change his mind once he saw his new wife.  Wink
