You should totally wear a veil if you want one! I have a very short a line bob and will be wearing a juliet style veil with a headband. The veil goes down to the ground so it’s definately not short. When I was trying on dreses they put a few veils on me and they all looked good! Keep in mind that most brides have their hair up in some way anyways so they, more often than not, look like they have short hair from the front.


I also didn’t want to look like someone else on my wedding day so I decided not to grow out my hair and I’m glad I did : )

I had a pixie cut when I bought my dress and didn’t feel like it was enough hair to hold the veil in.  I grew my hair out, but if I had kept the short hair, I would have done a fascinator/birdcage combo instead of a veil.  That said, you can wear whatever you want! I think short hair would look adorable with a long veil (think Anne Hathaway’s wedding), it just didn’t work for me.

Your hair looks thick enough to hold a veil. Mine is and mine is shorter than yours (a pixie) – you can make a little “nest” of bobby pins to hold the veil if you feel like it will slip. People keep asking me if I’m growing my hair out (no way!!!) or if I’m wearing a birdcage (not for me!). My mom’s pixie was shorter than mine when she was a bride and she also rocked a traditional veil. No big deal.

@louisabjohnson:  Not the best photo, but this is the fascinator/birdcage I wore at my reception.  It had enough poof to balance out my large ballgown skirt.  I bought mine at the salon where I found my dress, but I’ve seen similiar items on Etsy.

@louisabjohnson:  I don’t have anything to add except that you could rock any veil you want and I too have super short hair and cannot STAND to see shoulder length styles when I search for short haired brides. That isn’t short hair people!

I’m going with a long veil, regardless of what I end up doing with my hair!  I’ve been dress shopping with my bob and actually love my hair with my lace-edged cathedral length veil so much that it was what first got me thinking about keeping my hair as-is.

@louisabjohnson:  i think you can totally pull off any veil with short hair.  i have short hair, usually a pixie cut but i grew it just slightly longer so that my fascinator and bird cage would have something to hold on to. 


@MrsM914:  i agree.  once your hair can make a pony tail.  it’s not considered short.
