But what is its meaning exactly? Borrowed from tradition and considered a symbol of purity, the bridal veil would refer to an ancient custom where the man threw a sheet over the head of the woman to kidnap her. According to beliefs and religions, the veil is worn mainly to hide the face of the wife who reserves her beauty to her future husband, the latter being invited to lift it to reveal the face of his beloved and verify at the same time that it is the right person. Nowadays, the bridal veil comes in all its forms. Short or long, lace or rhinestone, simple or embroidered… Several criteria will allow you to choose the veil which corresponds most to your personality and your morphology.
