I am getting married on the beach and was considering an elbow length veil. Did anyone else get married outdoors with a veil? What was your experience. I have visions of it whipping around in the wind and annoying me. I do think that a veil blowing behind me in the wind would make for pretty pictures….just hope it wouldn’t annoy me during the ceremony.

@Hcrab81: I’m going through this same debate through my head. I think it will just be too windy for the beach.

I wore a veil but the beading/lace along the edge was heavy enough that it held it down

My best friend wore one in a gazebo on the beach, super windy and it was probably flying straight up most the time. They got a couple cool pics with it but at the time it seemed kinda akward.. maybe mostly for me since as Maid/Matron of Honor i didn’t know if I should hold it down or what lol!

Super annoying. I had an indoor ceremony and beach reception and the veil got in the way right away. Mine was much longer but didn’t last past photos. I will say, some of my favorite photos involve the veil so I would recommend it if you like the look. Maybe you could hand it over to your Maid/Matron of Honor when you hand off your flowers at the top of the aisle? Then put it back on for the recession and photos.

I did not wear one. I got married on the beach in Florida in March, which is one of the windiest times of year. I did not want the thing flying around. I wore my hair up and under control and I’m so glad I did and that I didn’t wearr a veil. My mom’s hair was down and ended up being a DISASTER by the end of our 15 minute ceremony. A veil would’ve been a mess. It was SOOOO windy. If you really want one, I’d say have a backup plan in case it is windy.

@mrsSonthebeach: Yeah, I’m just going to make a game time decision. I will be wearing a flower in my hair so if I got without the veil at least I will have something. I already have the veil so I’ll just have to see how conditions are on the day.
