I love veils. I think it depends what your ceremony is like. Mine is going to be traditional and in a church so I chose a veil. When you go for dress fittings they should help you out and show you how each looks.

I didn’t want a blusher (the veil over your face) either.

I have never been a long veil fan.  I really like the half-veils (I think that is what they are called). The ones that only cover a small portion of your face.  I think they are really classy.  I’m either going that route or maybe just a nice hair accessory.

For me the veil just set it off. Made me feel more bridal. I got really emotional about the veil when I found the perfect one… I didn’t expect that.

And besides everyone loving the dress, they loved the way the veil sparkled in the church (it had scattered rhinestones on it)… I head lots of great comments about it!

I designed my own (length, cut, style, embellishments, etc… Check out http://www.occanseydesigns.com

They do great work!

ETA: I had a single tier veil, 50″ long (hit about at the bend of my knees) and no blusher. 🙂

I looooove long veils, but it all depends on your dress. Do you have a dress pic for us? 😀

I think that it all depends on what style your dress is and what your over all vision is for your wedding day. There really aren’t too many rules regarding wedding dresses and veils anymore so you should just do what you think is best and what you are comfortable with. You are the one wearing it so be comfortable and be happy. No matter what you will be a beautiful bride.

I wanted a birdcage veil but my fiance nixed the idea. I tried on a bunch of Tessa Kim veils and the ladies at the store plus my fiance all basically agreed that veils plus my hair style (long/down/curls) just didn’t work with a veil. I do have a lovely jeweled headband though.

My dress is a very similar shape with the lower back like that and I went with a single layer, fingertip length veil with some crystal beading. I’m wearing it for the ceremony and then switching to a tiara with no veil for the reception.

What about a veil with lace edging to match the bottom of the dress? I’m kind of biased though, I love the look of mantilla veils – I’ll be doing one for our ceremony and photos, and then switching it out for a flower comb.

I do love veils but I won’t be wearing one since my wedding is outdoors.  I hate it when veils fly about in the wind and I would be fussing with it all day.

I think that a veil would look really nice with your dress.  I love traditional veils, especially long cathedral ones and also mantillas.  I don’t really like birdcage veils though 🙂
