    I always wanted to wear one, I was more excited for veil shopping than dress shopping.

    I didn’t vote because I’m not sure.  I was convinced I didn’t want one, but I really liked SOMETHING about them when the gals at the bridal shop paraded me around in them.  I bought one off ebay for just under $13 and figured if I don’t wear it, I’m not out much money, but if I DO want to wear one, I’ve got it just in case!

    I am not a huge fan of veils, but hey, I figure this is the only time in my life I will ever wear one, and you can always take it off after the ceremony.

    I never wanted one either.  Until I started trying on dresses.  I ended up with a trumpet dress and I wanted to feel a lil more ‘bridey’, so I got a veil.  I have no clue how the veil will look with the dress yet though lol.  They’re not in the same location at the moment so I was never able to see them together, I’m kinda nervous!

    I didn’t want one, but my mom offered to pay for one for me! She didn’t like my dress I picked, so I figured I would let her have a say in something. Haha. 🙂

    Not over my face but I did wear a catherdral length lace veil that was an heirloom in my hubs family.  I love lace but just didn’t find any dress that looked good on me that had lace, ah well.  The lace veil was a good compromise and I just wore it for the ceremony and like an hour of the reception.

    i was so set on not wearing a veil, I was so not a veil person.  But somewhere along the way, as the wedding got closer, I changed my mind.  I will wear it for the ceremony and then not for the rest of the night, so it feels like a good compromise.

    i did for a few reasons. my dress was short and it made me feel more like a bride when i had my veil on. plus, i needed it for religious reasons. i did take it off for the reception though and put in a big hair flower, which made my favorite pictures.

    I always thought I wouldn’t, but the one they put on me when I tried on my dress looks gorgeous.  And I’m afraid I won’t feel ‘bridey’ like another poster said above, so I will be wearing one.

    Yes, I am so excited about it.  It’s my mom’s, and I will wear a blusher too.

    It’s HUGE.

    My mom always said that brides HAVE to wear a veil because otherwise they look like pin heads in a big white dress.  As a bride myself, I REALLY DO NOT agree with this – especially as so many dresses are mermaid, A-line, etc., but I do think having something on your head (be it veil, birdcage, flower, pretty accessory, whatever), is nice because it does offset those miles of white.

    Anyway, I guess what she said always stuck, because I am wearing one (but only for ceremony and photos).  When it came down to it, I was like, “why not?”  This is the ONE time in life that it is acceptable to wear a big piece of floaty tulle on your head, so why not live it up?

    It sounds like you do not have a ton of time, so I will just throw in my 2 cents — I made my veil.  It took about 45 minutes and cost about $8.  Just a thought, if you decide to go for it and are having trouble finding one.
