I always knew I would want to wear a veil on my wedding day… but then I realised there was more than that to figure out.
At first I was trying to decide whether my dad would be the one to lift up the blusher before he “gives me away”, or if I would wait until the kiss. After some thinking I decided it was more important that FH and I could see each other clearly, not only through our vows but also for the walk down the aisle, where we will see each other for the first time (not doing a first look). So I’ll still have a veil fixed to my head somehow, just without a blusher/the blusher put back.
Just curious as to what everyone else has done/will be doing and what made you reach your decision?

@ksus07: I’m like you, I want to see my FH clearly (and I imagine looking from behind a veil is not comfortable).
Where I’m getting married, the tradition is for the groom to lift the veil before the kiss. Once I heard a pastor saying something with reference to Jacob-Leah-Rachel. Probably I’m too sensitive, but I hate that. So this is another reason why I don’t want a veil with a blusher.
But then I saw Mantilla veil, and I thought that’s perfect. I get to wear a veil but without the “unveiling of the bride” part.

@ksus07: I voted for the first option where I should’ve voted the third option.

I can see quite clearly through my veil, but I’m lifting it at the end of the aisle anyway

I am in the camp of wanting to be able to see everything. haha. And I am going a route my mother hates, it’ll be lower on my head vs. on the top. But it’s what I want. I want the tradition of wearing a veil but at the same time want it to be comfortable.

@ksus07: I’m wearing it over my face till the kiss but only because FI really has his heart set on lifting it himself

I wore my blusher until I reached the end of the aisle where my mom then lifted it. I was able to see through my veil without a problem.

I didn’t wear a blusher but I’d want to be able to see clearly.

@ksus07: I think it’s super cute when a bride wears it down the aisle and then the blusher is lifted after her special walk! I only wore a blusher on my wedding day, but behind me. Never in front of my face.

I wore my blusher down the aisle and during the ceremony, but that is required in my religion. I think if you want the best of both worlds then wear your blusher down the aisle and then put it behind you once you reach your husband.

I’m torn between not having a blusher and wearing a blusher and lifting it up once I get down the aisle to the altar.
