There's Something about Blusher Veils: Three Reasons to Consider Wearing One

In case you don't know what a blusher is, it's the layered part of a 2-tier veil that is usually pulled forward and worn over your face as you walk down the aisle.

Although most of today's brides no longer subscribe to the ancient customs that a blusher is needed to hide their face before they are "given away" or to protect them from evil, they find that this delicate piece of tulle can effectively shield them from the elements, especially when it comes to outdoor weddings, and can achieve a romantic, ethereal vibe.

While it can be viewed by some as old-fashioned or fussy, there’s a number of reasons why a modern bride like you may want to go for it.

You want to feel (and look) like a bride.

Nothing is more bridal than the look of a light, delicate tulle blusher veil worn over the face. In my humble opinion, it's absolutely divine!

You won’t regret your decision when you see the stunning pictures your photog will capture of a veiled you walking down the aisle, your father (or someone you choose) “giving you away” and your partner’s face when they see you unveiled on your wedding day.

After all, when will you ever get the chance to wear one again? Besides, a blusher is not only beautiful when worn over the face, the top tier of a 2-tier veil can be used to balance a full skirt and add a boost of volume when worn back. A fashionista's dream accessory!
