I’m a fairly non-traditional type… I’m not really a blusher veil kind of girl, but my father is really pushing it. My dress isn’t very traditional, as you can see. So I’m thinking a single layer chapel veil, with a raw edge. Simple & clean. But he wants it so badly! What do you think? Are you doing a blusher??

My wife and I both had blushers, and intended to put them over our faces as we walked down the aisle, but then we forgot.
However, as far as I’m concerned, this is a very individual taste, and if you don’t like it, then skip it. If you’re old enough to get married, you’re old enough to decide what to wear when you get married.

My Fiance really wanted to see me walk down the aisle with a veil over my face, (and he hasn’t asked for ANYTHING else in particular so I really wanted to do it for him) but I am not a fan of the traditional poofy blusher veil, so I am going for a very sheer, raw edged, cathedral length drop veil like this (its one layer), that way when its flipped back it lays flat and is still sheer: http://www.weddingbee.com/2006/11/20/at-the-drop-of-aveil/
I think that would work with your dress, its a modern take on the poofy blusher veil.

I’m not having a blusher but only because I’m wearing a tea length dress and I don’t think it would suit the look AND I don’t trust the fella to put it back over my head properly without it sitting all folded up and pointy like. They never put it over so it falls smoothly down, it’s always sticking up at odd angles. Perhaps if you decide to do it you can have a few practise runs first!

I think it’s entirely up to you. Something to keep in mind is this. If you’re having an outdoor ceremony, you might consider the wind factor. My friend just got married on the beach and her blusher was blowing all of the place, in her face, up in the air, it had a mind of it’s own! Her maid of honor ended up holding it back for half the ceremony.
For this reason (and because I’m also having an outdoor ceremony) I’m going to have to pass on the blusher.

I think it is totaly up to you. I wasn’t goiing to do a blusher, but after trying on several veils, i lived the blusher! It feels dramatic but it was the only one that me me feel like a bride, and made me and my sister start to cry 🙂

My dad insisted that I get a blusher because my veil wasn’t pouffy enough for him…haha! 🙂 I doubt that I’ll be pulling it over my face though to walk down the aisle…just adding some oomph to the actual veil…
