Many people associate the image of a real bride with a white dress and veil. The latter is an important wedding accessory. However, today there are many of her styles and variations.
The history of the long veil
For a very long time in Russia it was believed that a girl who was getting married seemed to "die". Until she goes under the protection of her future husband, no one can see her. The veil's great-grandmother was a thick linen shawl that covered the bride from head to toe. If the veil was short, it was believed that frequent troubles and sorrows would threaten the young family. Even in Greece and Ancient Rome, girls got married in a veil. However, it was of a different color - bright red. And in Greece they generally got married in a yellow veil. The veil has changed at all times. Its length ranged from oversized to the size of a veil. Already in the eighteenth century, it acquired a modern look. The white veil is considered a symbol of the bride's purity and innocence. The veil has long covered the bride from unnecessary glances. Traditions to hide the bride from the future spouse were in many countries. And the ceremony of removing the veil was considered one of the most important at the holiday.
Long Veil: For
According to the majority, a petite bride in a beautiful wedding dress and with a long veil is a very gentle and symbolic image. The veil should fall in a delicate train. Moreover, this style of the veil visually lengthens the girl's figure. A long veil decorated with various patterns and lace, pearls and iridescent stones can become a luxurious accessory. Photos with such a veil will be flawless.
In addition, a short veil is not suitable for all women. For example, a long wedding accessory is better for tall people. You can come up with many patterns and decorations for a long veil, which will look beneficial with an elegant hairstyle.
Long veil: against
However, if you overdo it with the splendor of layers of tulle and lace when choosing a veil, a short and fragile bride can be easily turned into a kind of cocoon in which she will literally drown. It is necessary to select a veil according to the style of the dress. For example, if it has a cutout on the back or is embroidered on this side with stones and patterns, it is simply pointless to purchase a long veil. She can just close all these delights.
Moreover, it will be quite difficult for a bride to cope with such a voluminous accessory alone, because such things are not worn every day. You need to be very careful in it, because guests can accidentally step on it, and this will ruin the hairstyle, the veil itself and the mood.
It will be easier to combine the hairstyle with a short veil. She will open all the beauties of the bride's dress, she will not interfere with the girl's movement.
