WEDDING TRADITIONS: Once upon a Bridal Veil



This is a short story of the Traditional Bridal Veil use.

Wedding day attire has changed in many ways, but one component that has withstood the test of time is the wearing of a wedding veil.


From a religious point of view, the bridal veil has long been a symbol of youth, modesty, and virginity and was used to ward off evil.

It was commonly believed in the past, that it is bad luck for groom to see his bride in her dress before the ceremony, and therefore a veil was used to conceal her.

In fact, in the old days of arranged marriages, the groom rarely saw his bride at all before the wedding day. If she was ugly, a veil might have stopped him from running away. :P


But everyone knows there’s no such thing as an ugly bride. A bride is always somewhere between ‘very pretty’ and ‘absolutely gorgeous’.

Veiling the bride is a symbolic way of tantalizing the groom by concealing her beauty until he becomes her husband and is permitted to see her.

When something is prohibited or difficult to have, it often seems more attractive and thrilling. Intention and context make the eroticism, not the amount of exposed skin. This was the simple psychology that made the dance of the seven veils so seductive.


Regardless of the origins, veils continue to be sported by today’s brides, who choose from a few different styles.

A Flyaway is a short veil that ends at the shoulders, while a sweep veil ends at the floor.
Chapel and Cathedral veils follow the bride at a significant length (nine and 12 feet, respectively).
A Blusher is a very short veil that covers just the bride’s face as she enters the ceremony.
With a Fingertip veil, the veil reaches the bride’s waist and brushes at her fingertips.


The veil could be a meaningful Masterpiece for the wedding but it must coordinate with the style of the gown, our Phuket Wedding Planner highly recommend you choosing the Bridal Gown prior to any headpiece and veil.


Regarding the choice of the Veil for a Destination Beach Wedding in Thailand… we say absolutely yes!

The bridal veil with the help of the sea breeze will give a final stunning effect to the ceremony and the photo shooting.
