I wore my veil for the ceremony and photos but then took it off for the reception. It was a cathedral length veil so there’s no way I could have managed to wear it all night without it getting stepped on. I can’t really help much on your hair situation though. I wore an updo with a lace clip in the back. I wanted to wear my hair down but my husband loves it up so I did it for him…in the end I was glad I did! 

P.S. I chose to wear a veil because I loved that this was the only time I would be able to pull one off. It’s the opitomy of bridal to me but I can understand why some would chose not to.

No veil for me.  But I’m doing a DW on a likely to be windy beach.  Plus, I’ve always loved the birdcage veil, but don’t think it goes with my dress.

Mrsjax213:  I’m sure you’d be able to wear a headband and a veil as well. You could always make sure the veil is pinned to the very back of your head so that you can see both.

I just googled it quickly and you could definitely pull off that style! Here’s what I came up with: 

 

 

 

I think they look beautiful together. In my mind you can only wear a veil once and that’s on your wedding day. If you choose not to wear a veil I’m sure you will look stunning anyway, but you can always take it off after the ceremony anyway so I think you should go for it!

Mrsjax213:  I wore it for both because my BFF told me this that PP said you can only wear a veil once!

I am wearing a veil to the ceremony. I was on the fence but realized putting it on that it is what truly made me feel like a bride.

I wasn’t planning on wearing a veil since I thought of it as an unnecessary expense, but I feel sooo much more bridal with one on. I figure I will never have the chance to wear one again, so I changed my mind and will be wearing one on my wedding day.

NO.

…But I sort of want to wear one now because walking down the aisle is going to be so freaking nerve wracking. 🙁

Mrsjax213:  I want to wear a veil- to me it’s just a fun fashion accessory that I won’t have much of an excuse to wear any other time. My “reception” is just dinner at a french restaurant. If I go with a birdcage I might just keep it on, if I go for a juliet style veil I’ll probably remove it for dinner.

Mrsjax213:  I agree with jenm2be. It would be the only time I would ever be able to wear one and I always imagined myself wearing one anyway.

I’m wearing an ankle length veil, but I’m petite so it looks more floor length on me, and I’ll only be wearing it for the ceremony and photos.

I am wearing a veil, and never thought to NOT wear one. My hair will be half-up and it’s incorporated to be easy to put in and take out without messing anything up.

It’s a single layer with pearl and crystal beading on the outside. I only debated not havng one, as I have a lace back with some drapings and thought it would take away… but you can easily see all of that through it.

I’ll wear it for pictures and the ceremony, but will take it off for the reception.

Mrsjax213:  I chose to not wear a veil as every one that I tried on with my dress I felt as though it didn’t look good. Everyone I took with me to the bridal salon agreed that a veil just wasn’t for me. I had my hair half up half down and a hair flower instead. From what I see, most brides wear the veil during the ceremony and than take it off during the reception (another reason I didn’t really want to wear one as they are so expensive and our ceremony was about 20-30 minutes). Its really a matter of how you want to look on your big day. When you choose your dress (or if you already have, when you go to your fittings) try on some veils and headbands and try to create the look you want and if its not exact, at least you may be able to get a better picture. Good Luck!! 🙂

I am not planning on wearing a veil. I am planning on an updo, but I don’t like things by my face, and I don’t think that there’s one that I would feel comfortable wearing and that wouldn’t overwhelm my frame.
