Historical Wedding Traditions – The Veil

A veil is a length of cloth worn as a covering for the head and shoulders. More often worn by women, a veil may cover the face as well. A fine netting or lace is often worn by brides at their wedding.

The custom of veiling the face is as old as time and pieces of these ancient practices have come to be incorporated into today’s wedding traditions.
