My husband saw my veil and all my accessories before the wedding.  He also knew I had a poofy ballgown, he just didn’t see the exact dress.  I think its fine, but I really don’t buy into a lot of superstitions (we saw each other before the wedding too).

Not sure if it’s bad luck, but I kept my veil hidden from my FI. Quite difficult as it was cathedral length! Luckily the company doing my gown pressing/steaming also did my veil and delivered it to our hotel room on the wedding day so I just had to keep it hidden until dropping it off a week prior!

Mine has seen everything but the dress. I don’t think the veil is really a big deal, it’s the dress that’s the headlining act.
