Veils symbolize the bride's loyalty to her husband, and in the days of old, the act of lifting the veil stood for the bride's appearance before the husband for the very first time. While the veil stands for traditional virtues, some brides opt for unusual veils to add a modern twist to their ensemble.
Fascinators, blusher veils, and hats with birdcage veils have become viable options for brides--these options cost less (since less fabric is used), and they also work better with humid weather. These veils also allow brides to make a chic fashion statement on their wedding day.
