I was just wondering if you bees could give a clear understanding of this.
Is there a protocol on what to wear on your head? What are the rules to wearing a veil? I am not getting married, not even engaged, I was just wondering.

I’m not saying I’m following these rules, but I’ve heard:
1. work with the venue i.e. don’t wear a catheral length veil if you are getting married on the beach.
2. the bride always has to have her head covered: Older people I talk to (like parents) are telling me I should always wear some sort of veil or headpiece even during the reception because I am the bride. I don’t really know the reasoning behind it.
But I think anything goes!

I don’t think there is a rule, at least, not anymore. I say wear whatever works with your dress. Mrs. Quiche wore a looooong veil for her beach destination wedding, and it was gorg. Mrs. Cheese wore a birdcage veil for her backyard wedding and it was stunning. Miss Fro Yo is rockin’ a headband. I didn’t wear anything on my head, except for a barrette type thing. I think it really depends on the dress!

Yep, no rules. Wear whatever you want.

Depends where you get married really. Some catholic churches require a cathedral veil. I’m doing a waterfall length veil just because it makes me feel more like a bride. It’s really just the feeling and effect you want.

Some conservative religious ceremonies require the bride to have her head or shoulders covered, but otherwise there are no rules. it’s all about personal style and preference, and what works for the formality/style of your wedding.
I am wearing a veil (my mom’s) for the ceremony and pictures, and then changing into an embellished headband for the reception and day-after pictures.

I am just wearing a hair band or head piece. I have no desire to wear a veil unless it is one that hangs from the back of my head and down my dress. Nothing over my face.
