All About the Wedding Veil

By Mary Welch

Is a wedding gown without a veil simply just a white dress? A bride radiates joy regardless of attire, and a wedding veil today may just be an accessory, but there is something about putting on the gown then having the wedding veil placed that makes wedding day feel *so real. They are one of the most traditional pieces of the trousseau, though the veil was not originally intended to be a fashion statement. It’s commonly believed that the veil originated in Rome where brides would “walk down the aisle with a veil over her face in order to disguise herself from any evil sprits who wanted to thwart her happiness,” according to Martha Stewart Weddings. Brides began wearing veils again after Queen Victoria’s bridal look when she married Prince Albert in 1840. Queen Victoria is also responsible for popularizing the white wedding gown, matching bridesmaid dresses, and a behemoth of a wedding cake.

Today, many brides wear a veil as a sign of purity or as a right of passage. When else do you get to wear a delicately laced veil flowing long behind a gown’s train? No matter the reasoning, the wedding veil has become a source of magic and movement to wedding portraits. It follows the bride continually signifying her bridal beauty! We curated a selection of a few memorable moments that highlight the magic of the wedding veil, which ultimately highlights the bride herself.
