Beyond The Veil
Mystery and pagan rites surround the origins of the veil, it is said that they were worn in Roman times to surround and protect the bride from evil spirits. Throughout the centuries the veil has survived the epic journey through time to become an important accessory, as beguiling and mysterious as its pagan roots. On no other occasion could you wear such an enhancing item. Certain styles of dresses cry out for the ethereal qualities of the veil. Its dreamy drapery frames the bride and gives her a timeless, regal air that epitomises not just the solemnity of the occasion but the brides supremacy among the bridal party. Veils come in a variety of styles and lengths, usually ivory, occasionally white, made of tulle and edged with different embellishments. Such is the plethora of different styles of gowns it is important to try different veils with your dress to find the perfect accompaniment.
