I don’t think it’s a silly question at all!!  I didn’t wear a veil at my wedding, and I 100% do not regret it.  There are lots of alternatives to veils that are super gorgous!  

However, if you want a veil, get one!  Even if you don’t end up using it on your actual wedding day, you could have your photographer shoot some photos of it for you to look back on.

Good luck, girl!  Keep us updated!!

You don’t have to use the blusher with the veil and can clip it in anywhere.  I chose to wear a blusher for my wedding day, because I just wanted a more dramatic look.

Well, I kind of wish I had taken mine off at the reception. I LOVED it, I never have any reason to wear one again but my hair looked GREAT and it was hard to see through the veil. But it did make for some pretty pictures before hand.

I bought one off etsy, then while I was getting ready decided I didn’t want it, and have no regrets at all! I just went with the cute headband I was going to wear for the reception.

I wore a cathedral veil for my first wedding. It was a pain in the butt. This time around, I went with no veil and had some flowers in my hair. I have not regretted it one bit.

I had made a cathedral but it was too windy the day of to wear it. I was sad because I love them but it was really for the best.

I was going to do no veil at all but then my mom and me made a cathedral veil and it and still is the best part of tangible things that day…

No veil and no regret.  My hair extensions and giant flower were enough to keep up with!

No veil, no regrets.  I had a hair piece and felt much more comfortable.  I felt awkward enough dragging a train around.

I had a cathedral veil my girlfriend lent me, and I wore it only for our first look photos. I took it off to do our off-site photos before the ceremony, and then it never got back to me.

I liked it in the photos, but it was a bit of a pain, so I’m glad in the end that I didn’t have to deal with it for the ceremony. It would’ve come off for the reception anyway, so I don’t regret it. I wouldn’t have spent $$ on it just to wear for photos and a bit of the ceremony.
