History of The Veil

According to www.weddingceremonyideas.info The Bride & Groom not Seeing Each Other Before the Ceremony comes to us from Jewish tradition.  But there’s more…

It was customary for the couple not to see each other for one week before the wedding, then right before the ceremony, they would meet and the groom would put the veil over the brides face symbolizing modesty, and that his love was more then just physical appearance.

Different genere’s meant different meanings for wedding veils. In Medieval the times it was worn to show purity in the bride. Today, the veil is still seen as quite a formal wedding accessory. The Royals have made the veil to be very sophisticated and something of class and as the times went on it was more and more a custom to see veils incorporated in “normal” people’s weddings.
