Dream meaning of veil

The first thing that comes to mind when dreaming of a veil is a beautiful bride ready to ascend to the high altar. It is a fact that this accessory is very famous because of this tradition, but when it first appeared the idea was to cause mystery and it was far from being a fashion accessory.
