The Wedding Unity Veil (or Couple Veil) is a traditional element of Filipino Catholic weddings. The Veil is draped over the couple's shoulders to represent God's protection (Catholic ceremonies) or the love of friends and family. The Veil symbolizes the couple's togetherness, now facing the world as one.
Though the Unity Veil is conventionally a Catholic tradition, we encourage you to incorporate Filipino ceremony accessories into your wedding day, no matter your religious background.
Our Unity Veil features understated floral embroidery. We recommend letting your veil air out for a few days before your wedding ceremony to allow for the fabric to loosen and the folds to smoothen out.
How To Incorporate It Into Your Weddings
In traditional Filipino weddings, the Veil Sponsors drape the veil onto the married couple, pinning each end onto either the bride's veil, dress, or suit near or at shoulder height. The Unity Cord is then placed over the Veil as part of Filipino tradition. Read more on Filipino Wedding Traditions
