This length comes down to the floor and extends just beyond your wedding dress-an elegant and versatile choice for your bridal look. For an extra touch of drama, choose a length that extends about three feet beyond your wedding dress. The cathedral veil is perfect for more spacious venues, such as ballrooms, outdoor gardens and (of course!) cathedrals with long aisles.
The right veil can give your wedding dress a romantic, vintage air, can add intrigue and elegance to your satin gown or complement the drama of a more elaborate gown.

The tradition of wearing a long veil at a wedding can be traced back centuries to different cultures around the world. Veils were once worn for a variety of reasons; the face had to be covered so that spirits could not see how beautiful the bride was. In addition, veils were also made especially heavy so that brides could not escape. It generally has a meaning of modesty and protection, a way to signal the bride's innocence and ward off energies that might attack or hinder the wedding ceremony. Most historians trace the history of the veil in the West to Ancient Rome, as well as widespread in Islamic, Jewish and Christian traditions throughout history.
Today, fortunately, everything is different and long veils are often worn because they are a complementing addition or because it is a family tradition. Veils are also considered fashionable, and Peter Langner devotes much of his energy to creating a true collection of veils.
