I think you’re fine to not wear a veil. I also tried some and felt kind of silly, to be honest with you! I am not wearing one, although I am having a smaller, outdoor wedding. I am wearing flowers in my hair, but my wedding is a smaller outdoor ceremony and will be much more casual than a large church wedding.

There are lots of pretty crystal hair combs and hair pieces you could wear instead that would be elegant enough for a church wedding. Go with what you are comfortable with. 🙂

I’m not wearing a veil….  however we’re having a casual DIY wedding and our ceremony is outdoors in a gazebo.  I’ve made a wreath for my hair with bark covered wire and faux flowers.

I didn’t wear one, but I got married in a 1920’s theater, not a church. I think it’d be fine!

I’m still trying to figure out if I want to wear a veil too.  I think brideatbeach had a great sugestion of wearing a comb.  I think one with some sparkle would lean towards the formality of a church wedding, but still allow you not to be bothered with a veil.

I wore a Victorian tea hat instead of a veil.

I don’t plan on wearing one although my MIL thinks otherwise. I think it’s not ‘me’ so I probably will just wear some sort of hair piece or birdcage of some sort.

None for me either. I think I look weird with it on.

I’m thinking of wearing a flower in my hair. I’m also still on the fence about a veil. My wedding is in a traditional venue (church) but I don’t really feel that I’m formal enough for a veil.

I haven’t decided yet but I never pictured myself in a veil and probably won’t wear one. However, I will be wearing flowers in my hair.

I went veil-less.  I ended up being too claustrophobic in my veil.  I think I looked fine without it.

I may have a large rhinestone barrette, or fresh flowers.

I did the flower route too but with a sparkly pink flower hair clip and think it worked out pretty well. My mom is bringin me some of the pics she took tomorrow (still waiting on pro pics) so I’ll try to post one for reference.
