I never tire of gazing at Wedding veils and I'll have been married 19 years this October! On one of the most special days of her life, the bride approaches the Altar of God and her husband-to-be full of joy and peace. Dressed usually in pure white, she will have her hair covered in modesty and reverence to God and her bridegroom.
The stunning Grace Kelly on her Wedding day - she chose a Juliet cap (made famous from Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet') decorated with orange blossoms and the circular veil, with lace motifs, was 90 yards long.
Another Juliet cap style veil- this one is handmade by 'Kelima K' in New York and is made of vintage lace and beaded trim.
A glistening, fully beaded long mantilla.
Crocheted white Wedding veil, absolutely glorious!
Elegantly simple, traditional style mantilla.
Veiling the sacred - in Judaism at the 'bedeken' ceremony the bridegroom places the veil over the bride's face and recites the blessing given to Rebecca by her mother and brother before she left for her marriage to Isaac.
“When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more noble her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women.”
