    I did.. and kinda wish I had taken it off. It got in my way, people would hug me and it would pull on my hair/head. It was just in the way. I think if I could do it again, I’d take it off after the ceremony/pictures.

    I am going to wear mine all night, I love it so much.  I will prob bubble it up and pin it under my hair so that it stays out of my way.  Like this:

    I really want to wear mine for at least the first dance. But I’m worried it will be difficult to take off at the reception since it will be in place with some bobby pins…

    I’m only wearing mine for the ceremony. I wouldn’t feel “bridal enough” if I didn’t wear one during the ceremony, but they seem like way to much of a hassle to wear all night.

    I kept mine on for the first dance (my married BFF suggested it – saying it would look so pretty in the pictures).  And, you know what – I hated the pictures because the veil kept catching on the beading on my dress and wasn’t exactly straight on my head.  It just got in the way and I was so much more comfortable without it.

    It also kept getting tugged every time I hugged people.  So, I’d say either have someone reposition it right before you get out there, or just take it off… I had enough couples pictures with it on that it wouldn’t have bothered me to not have it on my head during the reception.

    I took it off shortly after the first dance (we did that prior to dinner) and I was so much happier without it – and I loved the pictures without it (since all the other pics (ceremony, family, couple) had me with it).

    i was planning on keeping mine on, but ended up taking it off after cocktail hour because it would pull down on my hair every time someone hugged me

    About it being bobby pinned in…

    If you tell your hair sylist that you’ll be taking it out before the reception, they make sure it’s easy to take out. Mine was about to do that when I told her I’d be leaving it in, so she secured it really well.

    I wore a birdcage and took it off after the first dance.  I had intended to remove it before we entered the reception, but didn’t think about it.
