Thanks for asking Miss B! This is definintly something I am curious about myself.

I plan on getting a birdacage veil and wearing it to the reception, but with the "veil part" flipped back.

 We stll have quite a bit of time though, so I might change my mind!

I’m going to wear a small veil for the ceremony, but I’m taking it out for the reception and replacing it with a blue hair bow and daisies.

I had a cathedral veil for my ceremony and a blusher but I took both off fore the reception it was just too much to handle plus i had a tiara and that did just fine for the reception!

Great Question, I am interested in seeing the responses, as well.  I was planning on wearing a veil in the "back" of my hair and I was thinking about wearing the same veil for the ceremony and reception.

I have heard that all the tugging with ppl hugging you can hurt.  I had a freind who recently got married and OMG – she became bridezilla with the veil issues bc everyone kept stepping on it…

I’m still debating!  I really want a birdcage, but they are so expensive! I just don’t know.

I’m going to wear the same veil I”m wearing in the reception to the first part of the reception. I will probably take it off after the dances!

I am planning on wearing my chapel length veil (no blusher) for the ceremony only. I am not a huge veil person, so I will be glad to take it off after the ceremony!

I wore the same one, fingertip length double tier.  I didn’t have a plan for when to take it off, but ended up doing so when we sat down for dinner – so I had it on for entrance, first dance, pre dinner dancing……

I want a veil, traditional, elbow length but I want it just for show- I never thought about unveiling until my mother told me that I had to come down the aisle with the veil over my face. She’s paying so I may just let her think that I’m doing it. It just seems so dated to me to do the unveiling

I kept my veil on the whole time.  It was a fingertip length mantilla that I put toward the back of my head, so it wasn’t in the way all night.

I ditched the veil after the ceremony for a swarovski comb.  I got compliments on both.  I can’t imagine dragging around a veil all night, it just wasn’t natural for me.

I wore a chapel length veil with blusher for the ceremony.  When my father finished walking me to the front of the church and "dropped me off," he lifted the veil and put it behind my head.  I loved my long veil so much that I tried to wear it during the reception, but it was too much trouble and I ended up taking it off.  I wish there were other occasions when one could wear a veil!  They’re so beautiful and feminine!  🙂

I’m wearing a birdcage veil.  I’m taking the veil off after the ceremony/pictures, but I’m keeping the fascinator on.
