@MrsEME:  Why don’t you wear a veil for the ceremony and then take it off for the receiption? Lots of brides do this. Including me.  🙂

I’m wearing a veil. I love them, love how they look, and when the heck else are you going to get to wear a veil? Heck, I’m even wearing a blusher. I’m going full-on bride mode. Plus, if you buy one online, they can be really inexpensive.

@MrsEME:  How about a blusher?  Something smaller, more mordern.  Like PP said, you could just wear it for the ceremony.  I’m not wearing a veil because I couldn’t justify another $100+ for a piece of tulle to wear for all of an hour and then it’s never seen again.

I think the same as you. I feel that veils are for virgin brides and that there some sort of youthful look to them which is precisely what is making me stray from the whole veil idea too. Same thing for tiaras, same idea, young virgin brides can wear them. But there still is something to be said about wearing a veil for the ceremony. I think you’d be happy you did. I think the man finds it sweet actually whether they want to admit it or not. I say, go to your local crafts store and buy a packaged veil. They’re cheap and they’re simple, this way you don’t have ridiculous lace embroidery around your face but at least you’ll keep the tradition alive and not to mention, I bet your daughter would love you in one. You’ll be her queen. 🙂

@MrsEME:  I had the same dillema. Originally i wasn’t going to wear one but after a while came to a conclusion that when else will I ever have a chance to wear one ? I decided on a one tier floor length veil. There are so many awesome pictures that you can have with your husband on the day off with a veil…. why not 🙂

I’m planning to wear a veil for the ceremony.  I’ve always imagined FI seeing me come down the aisle but not being able to fully see my face, then being blown away when the veil is lifted.  I know it’s sort of silly and super-traditional, but that’s what I’ve always pictured.

@MrsEME:  I love that veil!  I think it’s fun, modern, and not too over the top.  It would compliment your dress very nicely.

Had to log in to chime in on this one. 🙂

I had mentioned to my then fiance that I love the look of a veil. However since this was a second marriage, I felt weird going full on bridal. After some weird circumstances with my first dress not being shipped in time for the wedding, we went on a last minute frantic hunt for a dress together. Long story short, during the process he convinced me to go with the veil. I am so grateful for that because I felt beautiful and ooh so special. Best of all, I received so many compliments on it, and my best friend told me that she wants to wear my veil when she gets married.

So to anyone on the fence I say, just go with the veil! It’s your special day and it will only happen once (or twice :-P).
