So this will be my second wedding. My fiance and I have a daughter who is the pride and joy of our lives.
I only recently read that second time brides should not wear veils. Personally, I think this seems silly. This is the first time I’m marrying my FI, and the first time I am marrying for the right reasons.
So – is it acceptable to wear a veil the second time? I feel like it completes the look and I would feel naked without it.

Second timer here too and I’m debating the same thing. I bought one just don’t know if I’ll wear it. Thinking I will for pics/ceremony then take it off right after.

Daenaria727: I am wearing a birdcage veil. Do what you want, it is your wedding. A lot of old traditions do not matter anymore with 2nd weddings.

The traditions surrounding veils are incredibly outdated – most people wear them for the lovely aesthetics of it instead of the original meanings. If a veil makes you happy, wear one. Haters gonna hate, but you will be beautiful.

First time bride, but I probably shouldn’t be wearing one either (or white) because I’m (gasp) not a virgin. But I’ll be in white with a veil, do what makes you happy!!

Daenaria727: Encore bride here, and I will be wearing a veil (unless is it very windy – LOL!!). It won’t be over my face, I’m doing the comb veil thing. I think they look very pretty, especially in the photos.
If you want to wear one, wear it!! You can find any number of sources telling you to do one thing or another, many of those guides are contradictory. Make your own tradition, do what makes you feel special!!

I think that anyone can do anything that they want to for their wedding…especially these days. There aren’t specific rules anymore. Anything goes. So if you want to wear a veil…then by all means wear a veil.

Thanks, everyone. 🙂 I think I’ll let my dress dictate it, but I certainly want to.
