    I think its ceremony and pics only… then its time to party… i guess you can keep it on if its one of those bird cage veils that  stick right to your head … but im sure those really long ones come off when its time to dance 🙂

    I think I’ll wear mine for dinner and take it off before the first dance.

    But I’ve seen brides on here say the veil is annoying when people are hugging u a lot so if I’m annoyed ill take it out after the ceremony. I have a flower to go in its place.

    I was planning to take it off after pictures, but it wasn’t bugging me at all and I was a little worried about messing up my hair taking it off.  Plus, DH LOVED seeing me in my veil.  So, I wore it all night.  It was elbow length.  I think a longer one would definitely need to be taken off!

    I only wore it for the ceremony and some pics. I couldn’t wait to take it off.

    I wore my cathedral length veil for the ceremony and pictures. I didn’t wear it for the reception, otherwise I would be tripping all over it!

    I’m not wearing a veil at all, but if I were, I’d only have it on during the ceremony. I’ve seen pics of girls in their veils during the reception and it looks really awkward.

    I had a cathedral veil for the ceremony and formal pictures, then I switched to an elbow length veil for other pictures and the reception. It didn’t bother me at all and I love the way the reception pictures look.

    I think the trend is to not wear it all day.   All my friends that have gotten married have taken it off after pics.  However, I wore mine all day and all night.  It was elbow length so it wasn’t really in the way.   I initially thought I would take it off but after I had it on for a while it just made me feel so much more like a bride so I didn’t want to take it off! Plus I have some really cool dancing pics from the reception that wouldn’t look so cool if it was off

    PonkiHoneyBee:  Mine was cathedral length, so I only wore it for pictures and the ceremony. Then I said…get this thing off of my head!

    Mine was only shoulder-length, and I loved my hair so much I didn’t want to put it on until right before the ceremony. During pictures after the ceremony it kept catching on the beading on the back of my dress, so as soon as we were done I took it off. Originally I had thought I’d take it off after our first dance, and if I hadn’t been worried about damaging it maybe I would have kept it on all night.

    I’ll be wearing a cathedral length veil. As soon as my dress is bustled, the veil will have to go. If you plan on wearing a shorter veil, you can always play it by ear and take it off when you feel like it.

    I have a cathedral length veil and a separate waist length blusher. I’ll be wearing both during the ceremony, both during pictures, removing the cathedral length veil for the meal and first dance, then removing the waist length veil after we open up the dance floor for the party 🙂
