If you answered (C) you are correct!

The Veil has been said to have had its origin in ancient Greek and Roman Cultures.  It was worn by a bride to protect her from evil spirits, which was believed to have had the power to harm her if she didn’t wear a veil.

Some say that a Bride’s use of the veil in the past was a symbol of her willingness to be submissive to her husband.  Today the wearing of a veil signifies: A wedding…Joy…and simply highlights a Bride’s beautiful appearance and features!
