    @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.

    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.

    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.
