It was during the 19th century, when the wide silk and tulle became known. Before, the use of a veil is to show purity and virginity, nowadays, it is more of like a fashion statement especially if they wear this together with their unique bridal jewelry crystal earrings.

When it comes to your musician make sure that you match the type of music they play and the musician’s style with your wedding itself. Similar when you searched your wedding jewelry set and your wedding gown. Most likely that people who plays at weddings whether it is a DJ or a band are versatile, but still it is important that you interview them and even provide you with a sample of songs they play and sing.
You should make a list of songs that you want them to play. This is important especially if you are avoiding some songs that may even remind you of some old memories you want to avoid. Make sure that your wedding band or DJ will keep your list and not just presumptuously play songs just because they feel doing it. Be certain that they also know how to handle song requests especially with songs that you want to avoid.
