17 bridal veils for a modern wedding

07 Jun 2022

For a modern bridal look, these veils offer the finishing touch

The bridal veil is a wedding tradition that will always be upheld, however the theories surrounding its origins are vast and varied. While the Romans warded off evil spirits by hiding the bride's face with a veil and protecting her purity, Christian history dictates that the lifting of the veil is a symbolic consummation of the marriage.

For these reasons, the veil is sometimes considered an outdated wedding tradition, however there is no denying the beauty and elegance of a bride who chooses to wear one. With various lengths available - from an angel-cut to a catheral length showstopper, and an array of intricate details and embellishment options, there has never been more choice for today's discerning bride.

If you're looking for a veil with a modern edge, take a look at these dazzling designs with which to say 'I do'.
