A blusher veil is a classic wedding accessory. It is the smaller portion of the veil that is worn over the face as the bride walks down the aisle and/or during the ceremony. It is designed to be lifted and flipped back to reveal the bride’s face either when the father “gives away” the bride to the groom or at the end of the ceremony when the bride and groom kiss.
If you have been debating whether or not to wear a blusher, here are three good reasons to include it on your wedding day.
1) The Photos
Dreamy pictures of the bride walking down the aisle with her face veiled are so ethereal and highly sought-after. Equally beautiful is the very sweet and touching moment of the father lifting the blusher as he gives his daughter away or the groom lifting the blusher to kiss his bride for the first time. Let's not also forget all the stunning photos a photographer can capture! The veil blowing in the wind, the bride and groom under the veil, etc. I actually have a ton of veil inspo photos for you on this Pinterest board. These precious memories are ones that makes for beautiful photographs.
2) The Romance
Whether you choose to have your father lift the blusher or wait to let the groom lift the blusher at the end of the ceremony, revealing your face can be very special and romantic. Even if you have already seen each other throughout the day there is something magical about that moment, as though you are seeing each other for the first time!
3) The Once in a Lifetime
There will most likely be no other event in your life when you will get to wear a blusher or veil. Your wedding day is the perfect occasion to seize this once in a lifetime opportunity! Make your day extra special by wearing a blusher.
BTW, isn't the bride above stunning? She is wearing our Marisol mantilla veil in the cathedral length with a custom length drop-veil blusher. We make our blusher veils 30" long but she wanted it to be long enough to drape over her bouquet so we make it 45" long. I can make the same adjustments for you too! I'd love to know what your plans are and help you create the perfect mantilla veil for your bridal look! xo, Gloria

About me: In 2010, while shopping for my bridal gown, I quickly realized that bridal stores had a very small selection (or none!) of lace mantilla veils. I ended up getting my veil from Spain and after all the compliments I received on my wedding day about my veil, I knew I had to bring these beautiful, authentic, quality, Spanish-made veils to brides in the US. My husband and I planned the whole business on the plane during our honeymoon! Today, we carry a large selection online of mantilla veils and have been featured in many bridal blogs and magazines.
