I am wearing mine the whole night, but I think I am the exception.  My girlfriend is my hairdresser and is going to pin mine up bubble style, which will match my 50’s inspired reception dress.  I really wanted to find a way to wear it all night and she did a wonderful job at showing me how she will do it.

Most people seem to take them off once the reception begins. That’s why I don’t really see the need to spend a fortune on one ~ you don’t have it on long enough to justify some of the high price tags!

@Tswife4ever: interesting question. Never really thought about it. If it was me I think photos and right after the ceremony? but come dancing time I would want it off Im afraid

I had a bird cage veil and wore it all night.

I only wore mine for the ceremony. I took it off for cocktails and the reception.

I am not sure yet how long I will wear mine. I will probably keep it on until after we do our first dance.

I bought a plain one and am only wearing it for the ceremony. I am going to do a funky feather for the reception

 This is similar to what my veil will look like for the reception.  Just alittle shorter.

I didn’t wear mine after the pictures between the ceremony and reception.

@noritake22: That’s a good idea. I never thought of keeping it on just for the first dance. I may do that, thanks! 🙂
