Bridal Guide: The crowning touch

There are many theories as to the origins of bridal veils. Some say the practice started in ancient Rome to ward off evil spirits. Some say the practice grew out of the custom of arranged marriages. The bride was veiled until the vows were done to prevent the groom from backing out of the arrangement because of her looks. Some say the practice was a sign of a bride’s submissiveness and willingness to obey her husband. Whatever the origins, veils have long been part of the bridal attire, and like most things, they have changed over the years.

While some brides today choose not to wear a veil, others do, and the length and style may vary. Common lengths include shoulder length, elbow length, waist length, fingertip length, knee length, floor length, chapel length and cathedral length. Veils may be one layer or two. Some have blushers, which are lifted at a certain time in the marriage ceremony.

Veils may be simple or heavily accented. Some may be edged with ribbon or rhinestones. Some may have pearls, crystals or rhinestones sprinkled throughout. Tiaras are still the rage, and styles range from simple but elegant to stunningly bejeweled. For brides not interested in tiaras, jeweled headpieces are available, with crystals, rhinestones, colored gems, shiny metals and more.

Remember the mantilla veil Grace Kelly wore on her wedding day? Mantillas are back. The Spanish-inspired veils edged with lace come in many lengths and styles.

When choosing a veil, bridal taste is a big factor. Some brides know exactly what they want. Others don’t and may want to look to their hairstyle, dress and wedding theme for clues. Some veils suit upswept dos. Some veils go with certain wedding gowns. Some veils reflect a particular wedding theme.

Whatever veils brides find appealing, they should always try them on, preferably with their wedding gown. That way, they can see for certain whether the veil complements them and their apparel. Veils are, after all, the crowning touch.
