The blusher veil is a traditional bridal headpiece. It is a short veil that covers the bride's face as she walks down the aisle. This bridal accessory is also called the birdcage veil, with varying lengths: the veil can fall just below the eyes, below the chin. Floor length veils are also known as ballerina veil.
The person who gives the bride away raises the veil to kiss the bride on the cheek or forehead and puts the veil back down. After the exchange of the wedding vows, it is time for the official "Just Married" kiss and the veil is raised by the groom. The veil then stays lifted all throughout the ceremony.
Apart from varying lengths, the veil may also come in different designs. Some veils have two or more layers; some are attached to a hat or fascinator. Blusher veils can be made out of tulle, or old lace.
