Getting Married? Need Engagement Advice? Listen up.
Shoes, dresses, bouquets….. many a bride has spent hours dreaming and designing these elements of her wedding costume. Yet some women hesitate when it comes to choosing a veil. Are veils too old fashioned? Too conservative and stuffy? Not at all!
Veils have been worn by women in many cultures throughout history as a sign of status, ceremony or separateness. All three of these aspects are still symbolized in the traditional wedding veil, as two people celebrate forever their new status as a married couple, no longer separate souls. This lovely, long veil would be perfect for a cathedral wedding. What could be more romantic?

So in style, and so many shapes and fabrics too choose from! From netting to lace, glittering to floral, the opportunities to make a statement are endless.
