Signs and history

The history of decoration is rooted in the past. Many centuries ago, a girl married, completely covered with veil fabrics, the groom was not supposed to see her lover before the wedding. This was due to the fact that the bride, getting married, was considered «deceased», until the souls of man and woman are united before God. Up to this point it was impossible to look at her. It was a bad omen to let someone else wear a veil on the bride. It was believed that this could «break up» new family. It was used as protection against the evil eye, from dark forces. The worldview of people has changed a lot, but the veil, along with wedding rings, is one of the most important elements of the wedding ceremony. The image of a bride with a veil still symbolizes purity, tenderness and innocence.
