    I bought a elbow length veil off of etsy for about $30.  I recommend that over getting one at the bridal shop since they are so expensive!

    I won’t be wearing one…probably just a flower feather fascinator.

    I’m thinking that I’ll go with a birdcage veil.  That way I have something fun and flirty and kind of traditional.  🙂

    Flower with a cathedral drop veil, plain with a cut edge. No veil for the reception.

    I was thinking of having a birdcage veil for the reception and I had it but I forgot it!  I was so forgetful at the wedding!

    I’m doing feathers in my hair.  Everyone said, “You don’t feel liek a bride until you wear the veil” but I didn’t think that was me – sure enough, my only thought when I put one on was, “GET THIS OFF ME!”  It was like in Sex & the City when Carrie broke out in a rash when trying on that dress – I just felt so *not* me.  Happy to say, when the feathers went in while I had on my dress, that’s when I started crying.

    I’m still trying to decide. On the one hand, they’re very “bridal” and fun. On the other….they kind of bug me.

    Yes, I am wearing a bubble veil, and it’s not too long, so I think I will be able to wear it the whole night!

    I love how veils look – on other people. I won’t be wearing one.

    I won’t be wearing one. My MOH keeps saying she wishes I would wear one, but I had a bad experience with my veil during my first wedding (wind was blowing, wrecked my hair).

    I’m wearing a crystal comb / vine instead.

    I think veils are nice for indoor weddings with a more formal dress.

    I’m either wearing and ivory cathedral or chapel length. Very plain and simple.

    Yes, I will be! = ) I don’t know the exact style because FI’s mom is going to make it. I’ll see it when it’s done. I’m not worried because FSIL’s was beautiful.
