Brides wearing wedding dresses with veils started with Queen Victoria's (Church of England) wedding in 1839, which was a fashion sensation that reverberated around the world. Before that, there was no special costume for weddings.

Since it is purely a cultural custom, it makes no difference to the Church. Whether you, or I, or anyone else like it or not is purely a matter of personal taste.

There isn't, and never has been, a religious obligation for a bride to wear a wedding dress and veil.

Veiling in a Catholic church isn't just a matter of fashion or custom. Special wedding dresses and special, white, lacy veils are, but women covering their heads isn't.
I miss the version, Victorian Bride with full veil.
My aunt wore a white suit and hat for her wedding and this was in 1950. The Mass and wedding service was in Latin. There never was a rule that a bride had to wear a veil.

If I was the legitimate Emperor of the United States of America (which I may soon become), I would mandate that women in churches and in the presence of the monarch, and in other governmental buildings, veil themselves. The unveiling of women is horrid and the Apostle clearly teaches at the practice in ALL churches when writing to the Corinthians. Canon Law of 1983 did not do away with it, it only did not mention it. Thus, the law should still be in practice under both Scripture and Canon Law of 1917.
Yes it was never addressed.

I've been to weddings (Catholic) with the bride in a mermaid dress. I mean really? This was at an NO parish .

I was embarrassed for the priest.

I'd be even more embarrassed for the bride.

"Veiling" includes the use of a hat. It's always been the rule that women veil themselves in Catholic churches, whether they wear hats or mantillas.

Unfortunately for your argument, this is what the 1983 Code DID mention:

Quote:Can. 6 §1. When this Code takes force, the following are abrogated:

1/ the Code of Canon Law promulgated in 1917;
2/ other universal or particular laws contrary to the prescripts of this Code unless other provision is expressly made for particular laws;
3/ any universal or particular penal laws whatsoever issued by the Apostolic See unless they are contained in this Code;
4/ other universal disciplinary laws regarding matter which this Code completely reorders.

IOW, anything enjoined by the 1917 Code that is not enjoined by the 1983 Code is no longer the law.
