What is a Blusher Veil?

First things first: what is a blusher veil?

A blusher veil is a short wedding veil that covers the bride’s face as she walks down the aisle. A blusher is a very classic choice. You can choose a blusher veil by itself, or have a blusher veil added to another veil style. It can be as poufy as you’d like; a single layer blusher veil is closer to your face, while a double layer blusher veil — like this one, below — offers more volume.

How is a Blusher Veil Worn?

Most blusher veils are attached to a simple hair comb or a headband. This blusher veil, shown below by Rose Red Bridal Designs, is attached to your hair with a hair comb.
