Veils have been a long standing tradition symbolizing purity and modesty and the term "lifting of the veil" signifies the groom's acceptance of his bride at the alter. Wearing a veil over the face didnt  become common until the 19th century.  Roman women wore a veil as a symbol of the husbands authority over his wife and was a necessity to her attire, "to hide the bride from evil spirits who might want to thwart her happiness". In the 17th and 18th century bridal veil's where occasionally worn and became unfashioable until Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's wedding day which became a status in the Victoria Era. The longer the veil length and heavier the embellishment's signtured your class and stature you held with in society.
