Wedding Ceremony Veils
The modern bride is no longer the shy and modest bride that she used to be in the past. Things have changed radically in the field of weddings and bridal looks and new trends emerged and still are bursting into our attention these days. One of the most fascinating types of wedding wear is the bridal veil.
This piece was considered a religious factor back in the old days and also a sign of purity, modesty and chastity. The Roman bride was concealed from the public eye by a long fabric veil. This piece if fabric had the role of hiding her beauty from evil spirits and also to protect her against other bad energies and influences.
During medieval wedding ceremonies the bride was also meant to mask her face from the evil eye that was believed to haunt her beauty. These beliefs are no longer considered by modern couples. If back in the old days the wedding veil was supposed to symbolize virginity, submission to the husband, obscurity or protection, nowadays it is an element of fashion.
Contemporary brides use the veil not to cover their beauty but to enhance it. This is where all the new short designs emerged of. The modern veil is worn to emphasize the bride’s appearance and add more elegance, more femininity and graciousness to her face. The length of the veil is the element that brought the bug change. Nowadays we can rarely see long cathedral veils.
They are worn only by the traditional brides or by those who are planning a big classic wedding. You can also wear a sumptuous long romantic veil if you’re a princess or if you’re simply planning a royal themed ceremony. Otherwise, it would be more hip to wear a shorter design.
The veils promoted today are cut to cover only the bride’s face, or only the eyes in many cases. This is a chicer way of creating an intriguing bridal look and stirring the interest of the public. You will surely steal your guests’ breath away with a sexy birdcage veil or with a vintage mask veil. The most popular design used for 2012 veils is based on a vintage cut and detailing.
In many cases, this accessory is accented with flowers, frills, feathers, headbands, combs or other jewels and sparkling fascinators. The headwear has become an essential part of a bride’s ensemble. This is why women pay more attention to the type of adornment they choose for their wedding. It could be a modern-vintage veil or it could be a sumptuous hat. It could be an oversized flower fascinator or a plumage headpiece. The ribbons and headbands are also very hot and trendy at this moment in this field.
