The Wedding Veil Trilogy stars Autumn Reeser, Alison Sweeney and Lacey Chabert. The three part series is about three college friends who share a 19th-century wedding veil said to bring whoever possesses it, true love.
In this flick, Emma (Autumn Reeser) travels to Italy to teach and research a wedding veil said to bring its owner love. While there, she meets Paolo (Paolo Bernardini), the son of a local lace-making family. Oh, we just know love is in the air!
Perhaps surprisingly, the bridal veil was actually not worn for much of history, only returning to fashion in the 19th century when Queen Victoria wore one. In fact, according to Powell, veils covering the bride's face were not allowed at royal weddings. At the time, most royal weddings were arranged marriages, and there was concern that the bride would enlist a decoy to take her place and hide her identity with a veil.
Veils also have significance in certain religions and cultures. For example, in the Jewish religion the bridal veil plays an important role in the Bedeken ceremony, where the groom covers the bride's face with her veil. This act is a nod to the Biblical story of Jacob, who was tricked into marrying his intended Rachel's sister Leah, who was disguised with a veil. At the Bedeken, the groom is required to "check" and make sure he is marrying the correct person.
Most bridal salons offer a selection of veils. It may be easiest to choose a veil from your salon's offerings at the same time you select your dress. However, there are many online resources for veils, including Etsy, Anthropologie, David's Bridal, and Brides & Hairpins. Or, if there's an heirloom veil that's been worn by members of your or your spouse's family, you may opt to wear it (no pressure, though!).
Italy, the place of romance. Continuing from the first instalment, the trio of friends discover more about the veil, with Reeser, of course, falling in love. Colour me shocked, but Unveiled is better than the original, as the chemistry between the two leads are cute, the expanded history of the veil is intriguing, and I'm even more surprised that there's zero conflict between them.
First of all, this has a distinct lack of Lacey Chabert. Secondly, cardboard dialogue from the first film makes an appearance throughout (Though I have to say Reeser was a pretty decent lead and did what she could with less than stellar lines). Thirdly, I just found this to be a bit slower and less fun than the first. Still a quality wedding romcom!

STORY VIII. The Prince who, after having been beguiled bya Courtesan, returned to his True Love.A certain king dreamed that his dearly beloved son, a youth of great promise,had come to an untimely end. On awaking he was rejoiced to find that his sonwas still alive; but he reflected that an accident might carry him off at anymoment, and therefore decided to marry him without delay, in order that thesuccession might be secured. Accordingly he chose the daughter of a piousDarvesh as a bride for his son, and made preparations for the wedding. But his wifeand the other ladies of his harem did not approve of the match, considering itbelow the dignity of the prince to marry the daughter of a beggar. The kingrebuked them, saying that a Darvesh who had renounced worldly wealth for thesake of God was not to be confounded with an ordinary beggar, and insisted onthe consummation of the marriage. After the marriage the prince refused to haveanything to do with his bride, though she was very fair to look on, and hecarried on an intrigue with an ugly old woman who had bewitched him by sorcery.After a year, however, the king found some physicians who succeeded in breakingthe spell, and the prince returned to his senses, and his eyes were opened tothe superior attractions of his wife, and he renounced his ugly paramour andfell in love with his wife. This is a parable, the true wife being the Deity,the old paramour the world, and the physicians the prophets and saints. Anotherillustration is a child who played at besieging a mimic fort with his fellows,and succeeded in capturing it and keeping the others out. At this moment God"bestowed on him wisdom, though a child," 1 and it became tohim a day "when a man flees from his brethren," 2 and herecognized the emptiness of this idle sport, and engaged in the pursuit ofholiness and piety. This is followed by an anecdote of a devotee who had soconcentrated his thoughts on things above that he was utterly careless of allearthly troubles, and was cheerful and rejoicing even in the midst of a severefamine.The world is the outward form of "Universal Reason" (Muhammad), andhe who grieves him must expect trouble in the world. 3The whole world is the outward form of Universal Reason,For it is the father of all creatures of reason.When a man acts basely towards Universal Reason,Its form, the world, shows its teeth at him.Be loyal to this father and renounce disobedience,That this earthy house may furnish you golden carpets.Then the judgment-day will be the "cash of your state,"Earth and heavens will be transfigured before you. 4I am ever in concord with this father of ours,And earth ever appears to me as a Paradise.Each moment a flesh form, a new beauty,So that weariness vanishes at these ever-fresh sights.I see the world filled with blessings,Fresh waters ever welling up from new fountains.The sound of those waters reaches my ears,My brain and senses are intoxicated therewith.Branches of trees dancing like fair damsels,Leaves clapping hands like singers.These glories are a mirror shining through a veil;If the mirror were unveiled, how would it be?I tell not one in a thousand of them,Because every ear is stopped with doubt.To men of illusions these tales are mere good tidings,But men of knowledge deem them not tidings, but ready cash.This is illustrated by an anecdote of Ezra or 'Uzair and his sons. 5 Onhis return from Babylon, whither he had been carried captive by Nebuchadnezzar,Ezra beheld the ruins of Jerusalem, and he said, "How shall God give lifeto this city after it hath been dead?" And God caused him to die for ahundred years, and then raised him again to life, and said to him, "Howlong hast thou waited?" He said, "I have waited a day." Godsaid, "Nay, thou hast waited a hundred years. Look at the dead bones ofthine ass; we will raise them and clothe them with flesh." Ezra was raisedfrom the dead as a young man, whereas his sons were then, of course, very oldmen. They met him, and asked if he had seen their father. He replied, "I haveseen him; he is coming." Some of them rejoiced, considering this goodnews; but others, who had loved him more dearly, knew him and fainted with joy.What was mere good tidings to the men of opinion was the "ready money oftheir state" to men of real knowledge.: 781b155fdc
