I had a cathedral length drop veil and I put it on right before the ceremony and took it off before the reception got underway. We did a first look and pictures before and I didn’t have it on for any of that. It just would have been too difficult to deal with.

Fmjxn:  I wore my cathedral veil during the ceremony, first dance and toast. Then, I took it off.

Fmjxn:  I took bridal portraits and had it on in a bunch of them. And I wore it for the pictures at the church and in the ballroom before we let the guests in. So I have a bunch of pictures of me wearing it and I’m not regretful that I didn’t wear it for the first look and group portraits. During our first look and pictures prior to the ceremony, we were outside and walking all over the place so I’m glad I didn’t have to drag it everywhere and risk ruining it.

GrannyPantiesRock:  I did the same thing.  My hair stylist inserted it into my hair at the salon in the afternoon, and I walked around with it over a hanger until I got dressed at the venue.  I kept it on for the ceremony and photos and bustled it for the reception. I didn’t take it off until we arrived at our hotel.

Fmjxn:  Nop. The photographer took out pictures on the Hotel, on the Church, and then at the venue prior to the beginning of the party. But the picture that I uploaded was during our first dance, since I used my veil until the dance and toast was complete. I really wanted my first dance pics to be with the veil on.
