Guide to the Types of Bridal Veil

Types of Bridal Veil

One aspect of a wedding outfit is the veil, and there are many different styles and types of bridal veil to choose from. We recently covered Fun Facts From the History of the Bridal Veil, but now it’s time to get serious with the hard facts.

Some brides have found that they initially rejected veils, only to find that they really tie the final wedding outfit together.

While there are many styles of bridal veil available, there are seven standard lengths, which range from the shorter 45″ shoulder length style to the unmissable 144″ “cathedral” length.

Factors such as tiers, fabric, gathering, embellishments and edging also affect the final outfit. There are many options for lacework, beading and pretty details which can make a bridal veil truly stunning.

If you want to know more about the terms and tricks behind bridal veils, then we recommend the guide in the link below.

Man Proposes to and Marries Girlfriend on Flight

Man Proposes to and Marries Girlfriend on FlightA man recently proposed to his girlfriend on a flight – then married her on the plane!

Jurgen Bogner and Nathaly Eiche departed from Vienna as partners and landed in Athens as husband and wife on their honeymoon.

The two-hour flight was passing by normally enough, until a choir singing Bruno Mars’ “Marry You” appeared. Bogner then got on his knee and proposed to Eiche. After she accepted, the surprises continued, as Bogner then produced rings, wedding outfits, witnesses and an officiant for a marriage ceremony.

The bride was walked down the airplane aisle to the strings of a violin, holding a bouquet of white roses. The couple were married at 35,000 feet. Blogger Tatjana Catic recorded the proceeding through her social media channels, including videos of parts of the ceremony on her Instagram.

Austrian Airlines knew of Bogner’s plan, and helped him carry it through, even providing a wedding cake for him and his new wife.

Breastfeeding Bride Inspires Others Worldwide

Breastfeeding Bride

A very special wedding photo of a breastfeeding bride went viral recently. Christina Torino-Benton was getting married in Quebec, Canada, on the 18th of June when Gemma, her nine-month-old daughter with husband-to-be Daniel Benton, got hungry. “The wedding started and she was great through most of it, but a Catholic wedding runs pretty long so she got hungry,” Christina explained “At the church it was like 40 degrees, Gemma was hot, she missed her nap and was overall really crabby.” Christina sat amongst her guests whilst feeding her daughter. During this pause, the image which went viral was snapped by photographer Lana Nimmons. Christina saw it the next day and posted it on the Breastfeeding Mama Talk Facebook page with the words: “That moment when you’re getting married and your baby gets hungry. Feeling SO proud of myself! Fighting that good fight.”

Christina’s words, actions and picture have inspired other women to brides to share their images. You can see the gallery through the link below.
