A colorful person is usually a daring person. This is possibly why the custom of wearing a veil has also slowed down. The wearing of a veil has several purposes. One is a representation of submission by the woman to her man when HE lifts the veil. If SHE lifts the veil it’s showing her independence and his understanding and respect of that. Another reason a veil is used is for creating a bit of mystery and intrigue in the groom as well as the guests. Many brides no longer choose to use a veil as part of her wedding attire. Instead some will use wedding beads, pearls and even flowers woven through their hair. While some allow their hair to flow freely, and if it’s long enough, some actually let their hair become a part of the dress itself.
The tradition of a white wedding dress held its place firmly in history for a few reasons. The most popular reason was its representation of purity. In this day and age, many brides are marrying a second time. With her children either present at the wedding or even a part of the wedding party, it’s kind of obvious that purity is no longer the case. So many traditions faded away, so many choices now open for a wedding of awesome proportions. More importantly a wedding dress of breathtaking personality to match the exquisite bride wearing it!
