Should I wear a wedding veil? This is a common question among contemporary brides. Some brides-to-be seem to consider a wedding veil to be “old-fashioned” or even “primitive,” believing it’s gone with the times – are they right?
I’ve watched ‘Say Yes To The Dress’ so many times; not because I particularly spend a lot of time dreaming of my wedding day but because its a darn good show. Watching the series, one thing I’ve come to realize is the importance of a wedding veil.
Most contemporary brides leave veil shopping to the last minute at which point making a choice is hurried but on the show, a veil is seen as a finishing touch to a wedding dress and when that simple touch is added, the bride-to-be is immediately transformed into a bride. So yes, you could say its relevance is strongly attached to its symbolism.
Now if you don’t want to wear a veil, that’s alright but if you do but you are skeptical because you think it’s a popular tradition that has or is becoming unpopular then you’re wrong. Don’t believe me? Just ask Mrs K. West who wore a wedding dress that came with the most traditional of veils. The veil addition made her look like she was the most innocent bride ever. Kim Kardashian looked like a holy, first-time bride, but we know better.
Many celebrities have been known to wear dresses made for brides down the red carpet. What makes a bride look different in her dress is the extra attention she gives to her look on the D-day. To show you how ethereal a veil makes any bride look, we’ve curated a contemporary lookbook that will leave you fully inspired.
You should also sleep on this quote by a wedding veil designer:
“The gown is gorgeous and it’s white and it’s beautiful, but in theory, it could be on any starlet walking down a red carpet. When you put a veil on, you are a bride.”
