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 their friends and family. The Veil symbolizes the couple's togetherness, now facing the world as one.
Though this is conventionally a Catholic tradition, we encourage you to incorporate the Unity Veil and our ceremony accessories into your wedding day, no matter your religious background.
Our Unity Veil features scalloped lace and satin edging, with two satin bows and delicate beading on either end of the veil. 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 smooth out.
How To Incorporate It Into Your Wedding
In traditional Filipino weddings, the 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 the Filipino tradition.
