My hair is one of my greatest features I would have to say.  My hair is very thick, and goes to almost my ankles.  I plan to wear my hair down in curls.   I didn’t want a veil hiding this.  I plan to do a simple very short blusher bird cage type veil, that will completely cover my face.   I also don’t like things in my face, or stuff to fidget with, I kept messing with the veils in the dress shops.  With in minutes my nervous habit I’d accidently pull the veil off, at a wedding It will never last! LOL

@alishaloo:  Is your veil attached to the headband? I ask because your hair is pretty much exactly how I want to wear mine but I was thinking I’d have to do a half up style to keep the veil in place.

I didn’t feel like a bride until I got a veil. You only get one chance to wear one, and I wore mine all night!I did the veil tucked into my hair look, which apparently isn’t popular these days, but I loved how it turned out. It allowed the veil to drape over my arms, almost like a bolero, and it made me feel a little more secure with no sleeves.

Sorry for the pic overload….I just REALLY LOVED my veil.

I LOVED my cathedral length veil!  I wore the veil for the ceremony & a few pictures only, and I switched to a bejewled headpiece for the reception.  Incidentally, I’m also selling my veil, dress, belt, & hairpiece. PM me for details. 🙂

I LOVED my veil. It was silk tulle beaded (by the amazing Nicholas Kniel) on the edge to match my dress. It was sewn onto my headpiece, I wasn’t a fan of combs.

@taraelisabeth:  Yeah!  Maybe just use white bobby pins? I didn’t put my veil in so I didn’t know how much of the pin was showing and then my husband did this lovely dip kiss that kinda yanked it out :S oh well!

I didn’t wear my veil for long but it made some of my favorite shots of the day. It was cathedral length with a blusher.

I borrowed my SIL’s.   My dress was very understated so I loved having a long veil to add some wow.
