Who should lift the blusher at my wedding?
A blusher is the section of a two-tier wedding veil which a bride can choose to wear over her face as she walks down the aisle.
If you’ve chosen this type of veil for your big day, you’re probably wondering who should lift the blusher when you reach the end of the aisle.
Who Should Lift The Blusher?
There is no straightforward answer to this question. Rather, who lifts your blusher is up to you!
Traditionally, it is the father of the bride who lifts the blusher as part of ‘giving her away’. But it doesn’t have to be! Instead, brides can choose another person of significance, such as a parent, best friend, or even your husband either before or after you exchange your vows.
While weddings are steeped in tradition, in our modern world there are no rules as to who does this for you or when it happens. If you’re having a religious ceremony, you may wish to discuss this with your officiant and hear their suggestions. But at the end of the day, the choice is yours only.
If your veil is quite long and may be difficult to lift, you could ask your maid of honour to help or even do it for you. Or, if you’d prefer, you can lift the blusher yourself. There’s no right or wrong way of doing this at all!
