Thinking of getting married abroad? A few pointers for your planning.

So how difficult is it to dream up a themed wedding? And how far should you go in making it a special day?
Wedding theme factors

Maybe you want rustic and rural, offbeat and quirky, or classic celtic charm.

In the Roman times, veils were worn to protect the bride from evil spirits. Later on, when arranged marriages were common, they were used to hide the bride-to-be’s features until the union was legal.

However, some brides still wear them for religious purposes.
From short and funky to long and flowing, there are many beautiful bridal veils to choose from. Only the right veil will transform you into a vision of perfection.
