I think my dad was so nervous that he forgot to lift it, and I was in a happy haze so I didn’t think about it. It wasn’t until my now husband (eeeeeek, still getting used to saying that!) kissed me that my veil was lifted. Any other brides doing this? How antiquated is the veil during the ceremony?

I thought it was traditional to wear the veil over your face until your Husband lifts it to kiss you, so don’t worry. I bet most people just thought you were being traditional.

The reply from SillyStacey: above is right.
The “most traditional” custom is that the Groom lifts “the blusher” when the Ceremony is over, and he is told to “Kiss the Bride”
More modern traditions are (say since the 1980s or so) have the Bride’s Veil lifted by whomever walks her down the aisle… and oftentimes if it is Her Father, he’ll give her a hug and a kiss on the cheek before “presenting” her to be married to her Fiance
There is NO RIGHT OR WRONG… just a matter of personal preference.

I am having my dad lift the veil when he gives me away, only because I cant stand the veil over my face for the whole ceremony! i would probably hyperventilate.

Geez, when I saw your recap, I thought you did it on purpose. Now that I know you didn’t, I’m worry and hope I do not forget. There’s nothing wrong with it, as others have said. But for the pictures, I prefer to be able to see myself.
Well, like I said in the recap thread, you were BEAUTIFUL, so I guess I was able to see you. lol. Wait, no, I said you were amazing. Anyways, beautiful and amazing. Congrats!

I didn’t have a blusher, but accidentally forgetting to lift it was definitely a consideration when I decided against it.

Yeah, I kind of want it just for the walk, but I’m very worried that I’ll forget to lift it or have it lifted.
I guess I can tell my father what to do, then tell my Fiance what to do if my father doesn’t do it. So that way, if they two forget, maybe I will remember between the three of us!

I kinda want to keep it until he kisses me. Symbolizes the beginning of a new life together 🙂

@Bellagiobride: I want to know where your hall is, with those pretty couches for your guests to sit on. Love them!
