    Honestly, I wasn’t planning to until one was thrown in for free with my dress. It’s gorgeous so I think I’ll wear it for the ceremony. Either way, I never planned to wear one for the reception – I have a feeling I will be tossing my head to many songs on the dance floor! 🙂

    I voted for "Nah, not my thing". I was never really fond of wearing a veil and since I am not getting married in a church, I am definitely not wearing one. It just doesn’t fit the vibe of the venue.

    As a replacement, I will be wearing a white flower with black feather fascinator that I bought on Etsy. I love it!

    I will be wearing a veil. Since I began envisioning my wedding, I knew I’d have a beautiful wedding dress, and veil. I will be getting married in an outdoor ceremony too. I don’t think there are any rules to whether or not you wear a veil. I think it often becomes a personal preference! I believe it completes the look of a beautiful bride though.

    I loved, loved wearing a veil. It was my favorite part of my wedding ensemble. You get to wear a veil one day in your life, and I didn’t want to miss that. It really made me feel like a bride. There are so many veil options out there, too. During my honeymoon I put my veil on practically every night for my new husband 🙂

    I feel like I kinda have to have the veil for the ceremony. Not sure why, I feel like it’s the icing on the cake even though I don’t really love the way it looks on me. Very "bride" I guess. My mom however, says it’s a requirement with the blsuher and everything but she’s kinda old fashioned. I skipped the blusher. I went for a waltz length. She was just in love with it so much and they all kinda looked/felt the same to me, so I said whatever and let her pick mine out. She also wants me to wear it on the tippy top of my head. NOT! I don’t want it poofing out over like a big monstrous thingy on my head though. I’m taking it off for the reception FOR SURE.

    I didn’t think I’d want a veil, and when I was dress shopping and they’d plant one on me, it was just confirmed.  I really didn’t like the look on me at all and I don’t particularly like the symbolism of them either.  My mom seemed a little disappointed that I wasn’t buying a veil but c’est la vie.  I’m not wearing one.

    I wasn’t going to wear one at first, but when the lady at the bridal salon plopped the matching veil for my dress on my head… I just teared up. I finally felt like a bride. I figure, hey, when else in my life am I ever going to get to wear a veil? 🙂

    For me, it’s the bouquet that makes me feel like ‘bride.’ Weird, I know, but how often do we go around clutching a lovely bunch of flowers while we go through life? The veil, nah, not for me, especially after I saw a poor outdoor bride get entirely tangled in hers while the MOH fought desperate against the breeze to hold the thing down. ps. outdoors, microphone, and long veil do not mix!

    No veil for me, and it was just fine. I already felt dressed up in costume just wearing the dress.

    I like veils, though, and it’s a decision you should make based on what you want and what kind of wedding look you’re going for. Either is acceptable!

    I really can’t decide! My issue is that I want to wear my (long) hair down in a vintage, Veronica Lake-type finger wave style, and if I wore a veil I would want to wear a lace cathedral veil (just for ceremony and pictures), and I can’t really do both I don’t think. I don’t know. I’m as yet undecided. If I end up doing a low bun instead of the hair down (although I doubt I will) I am definitely going to wear a veil. I think a veil would make me feel more bride-y.

    I don’t think veils are essential (I used to, back when I was a little more traditional :-P) and I love some of the other headpieces I’ve seen, but I think I’m going to wear one. In fact, it looks like I may be wearing my mom’s veil (I have a lace dress and she has a lace-edged veil). I’m going to try it on this weekend and see how it looks, then decide.

    At first I wasn’t planning on wearing a veil, and then when I decided I wanted one, my mom offered to make it. I plan on wearing it for our outdoor ceremony, and for some pictures, and then will take it off for the reception!  I definitely don’t think it is necessary, and I have been to many weddings where the bride doesn’t wear one and I don’t even notice!  Keep us posted on what you decide!
