Veil Under the Cuppah

Thank you so much for answering my questions about couple remarrying each other after divorce – one urgent question remains : should the bride wear a veil under the chupa?

Answer:

There is no need for the veil under the Chuppah.

Best wishes.

Sources:

There are many different and varied sources for the veil under the Chuppah, but the clearest is the Mishnah in Kesubos stating that a besulah comes out with a veil (see Kesubos 17b). This will not apply to the second marriage.

For the covering or uncovering of the bride as part of the Chuppah see Taz, Yoreh De’ah 342, and see Teshuvos VeHanhagos Even HaEzer 393 for why this will not apply to a second wedding.
