Three days later, I’m still gushing over Meghan Markel’s gown. Her bridal veil was so spectacular.

I’m still high on the Royal wedding...



During the Royal wedding, Meghan wore a five-meter-long soft ivory tulle veil that had all the 53 Commonwealth countries represented by their respective flowers which were hand embroidered on the veil, making quite a diplomatic statement and looking stunning while at it.

Cathedral veils have in the past been worn by other top celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, during her marriage to Chris Humphreys and also during her wedding with Kanye West.

There are many reasons why brides wear veils during their wedding day, depending on the culture albeit, the most common reason is to hide the face from the groom as it's believed that it's bad luck for the groom to see the bride on the morning of the wedding day. So brides cover their faces with veils and once the groom flips the veil open, then it signifies ownership. Modern day brides prefer a simple veil; some even wear a simple tiara or a netted hat and that's about it.

But after the Royal wedding, it’s fair to say that Cathedral veils are gonna be the next big thing. There’s something so regal and sanctifying about a long flowy veil. It makes the bride look so princess-y. If you’re a dramatic bride that wants to turn heads and totally steal the show on you big day, then you gotta do it the Meghan way by wearing a long veil on your wedding day.

We have compiled some photos to inspire you to get married like a Royal in a floor sweeping veil.
