Need help… Veil or no veil. I had always planned to do a bird cage style veil because I didn’t want to cover my hair. (When straight it’s to my knees) after I had a practice run on my do. I’m wondering if I should bother. I won’t be wearing my glasses. Thoughts?

Your hair is so gorgeous and long that you can certainly handle a full veil without taking away from your locks. I’d go fingertip.

@Sugger_Lipps: Thanks. I can’t do long veils tge drive me crazy I fidget with them so bad I pull them down by accident. Plus I don’t want to hide my hair. I figure I do small one over my face but I’m questioning if I should bother and let my hair steal the attention. 🙂

@Jacquelinesc84: First of all your hair is BEAUTIFUL… now tell us your secret on how you get it to grow that long and look so very healthy! Seriously, share with us Bees!
As for veil… I would opt for no veil. However, if your look goes with it, how about a more sparkly hairband?
EDIT: Is there any way you can walk into a bridal store now and try on some veils/birdcages while your hair is all done up? Perhaps this will help you in deciding. I walked into my bridal store just to look for veils with no appointment and they were totally okay with it. Just a thought.

I don’t think a bird cage veil would do your hairdo justice. I would either opt for a long veil or PP’s suggestion about a sparkly headband.

@Jacquelinesc84: What does your dress look like?
I think a single layer fingertip veil would be fine. I agree with the PP I don’t think a birdcage veil would really accent that hair well. A single layer veil would not hide your hair really and you could take it off during the reception.

I also agree with PPs that a birdcage veil would not accent your hair well. How about wearing a finger tip veil for your ceremony and taking it off for the reception? I was on the fence about a veil but decided I would probably never have a chance to wear one again. I left it on for some pictures and took it off right before dinner.

@MrsTickledPink: Sorry for the delayed response. The Secret to my hair, is I haven’t cut it in 17 years! Also a couple years ago I stopped using heat products on a regular bases I noticed a huge improvement. But I think the key was good genes, my. Mom and dad both had thick hair. I was blessed with both. My hair been through it. Thyroid Cancer 7 years ago, thinned my hair out tons, sun damage from good old AZ and other things. Health plays a big part!
any kind of long veil would drive me crazy, plus my FI & I don’t want to cover up the hair. I’m thinking of just doing a very very short veil over the eyes. but uncertain. Still on the fence.
Thanks for everyone feed back!
