Hat Veil Movie Wedding Planner
You know that saying “monkey see, monkey do”; well it can be applied to most of us. I bet my hamster’s ears that after seeing the movie The Wedding Planner many brides-to-be copied Jennifer Lopez’s hat veil. The hat has a very simplistic design; it is vintage and in the same time modern; you can say that it is a kind of hybrid between these two trends.
I want to tell you something about the significance of the veil. You see, at first women didn’t wear veils because they wore their long hair on their back and their wonderful and simplistic dresses. I want to tell you that the white dress, which you are wearing on your wedding day, wasn’t always the traditional clothing of a bride.
Before Queen Victoria, women dressed themselves on their wedding day with their best dress they had; it was a normal dress that afterwards was used for churches or special occasions. You know that Queen Victoria had a great impact on the British people back in the Victorian Age and it seems that her fashion senses have a great impact on today’s fashion industry. You see, she started this white dress tradition; on her wedding day she said that she wants to wear a white dress; and the reason that she wanted that was because the fabric that was used for her dress was the cheapest one available. You see, the white fabric from which the dress was made was the cheapest one available because it hadn’t had any color in it. Seeing that her people was starving and fighting with diseases she couldn’t afford to waste money and parade her fancy and expensive dress and that is why she decided on this type of dress. This is one side of the legend of the white dress tradition; of course there are others.The white veil is something else.
It symbolizes, like the dress, purity and virginity; actually in many cultures the bride who wears her veil on her face means that she is a virgin and the moment that the veil is lifted and her face is seen signifies the fact that the marriage was consummated spiritually and latter on it will be physically. In the movie there is a veil but not in the traditional form. The hat veil design is very interesting; it combines the modern with the traditional.11
