Q. “I plan on wearing a blusher veil and would like to know who should lift it — my dad or my fiancé?”

A. Good question. But first, a fun fact: The blusher veil dates back to ancient times when a bride would cover her face to ward off evil spirits, hide from kidnappers or prevent the groom from seeing her if it was an arranged marriage. Luckily, times have changed and wearing a blusher today is simply a style choice.
