Brides Veiled or Un-VeiledIt’s your day! You want the dress, the cake, the car, the whole darn thing – including your dream hair! Long, short, up, down, curled, straight – to veil or not to veil, that is the question.
I have recently come across some stunning styles that included flowers, jewelry, intricate braiding and styling but not a veil in sight. Interesting. This got me to thinking about the practice of and the history of the veil itself. I could go on at length here but this is what I found, in a nutshell.
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.”
Thus, should it not stand to reason that a wedding gown by any other colour is still a beauty to behold?
Last week, I caught an episode of “I Found the Gown” on TLC and was moved by the plight of one young bride who had dubbed herself “different”. She was searching for a gown that would speak to her heart, encompass her personality and allow her to enjoy her wedding day feeling beautiful and magical.
