    I didn’t like having anything over my face. I jokingly said it made me feel like a bee keeper. I think it can look lovely, just wasn’t for me.

    I love my blusher veil. For me it came down to a choice between a blusher my mom’s wedding veil. For my style of dress, a tea length, beaded and lace, it fit perfectly and looks much better than a traditional veil. Make sure you steam it into the right position if you wear it, though. Otherwise you’ll be fighting with it all day.

    BurlapnLace:  I wore a veil but not a blusher. I really, really wanted a veil because it would be the only time in my life I could wear one and I also think its very bridal. DH was strongly against me wearing a veil at all as he thought they all looked stupid and he also assumed that every veil had to be worn over the bride’s face, which he hated. When I showed him the one I was thinking of wearing he said, “Oh well that would look really nice after all since it won’t be over your face!!”. Sigh….men. Anyway here’s my veil during the ceremony. I wore it this way walking down the aisle as well.

    Also threw in an awesome veil shot…just because!

    BurlapnLace:  Ugh, I have been stressing over this question since my first fitting! I have store credit at my bridal salon that will cover the cost of both a cathedral length veil AND a blusher, so I’ll probably get both and won’t end up deciding until the morning of 😛 Leaning towards wearing it though, it’s so romantic in photos!

    I chose a veil with a blusher but will not be wearing it over my face. I like the added texture and height.

    BurlapnLace:  I always want my friends to wear it at their weddings because I think it looks nice but I don’t want to wear one lol!

    I don’t like that it was basically started to keep the groom from seeing if he was marrying and uggo in the days of arranged marriage.

    Also, I’m a little vain in that I want everyone to see my face as I walk down the aisle haha trivial I know but it is what it is.

    BurlapnLace:  I didnt wear a blusher and chose not to because it’s not really my style, but MOSTLY because when the groom lifts it to kiss the bride, they always do this lame half-fold on top of the brides head, and it looks absolutely ridiculous!! Or they lift it off all the way, but then its a big mess at the back. So if you wear one, maybe have a trial run with your FI on how to lift it and plan for a BM to straighten it out real quick!

    BurlapnLace:  lol shows how much I know, I thought they stayed over until the very end. It would be much more dramatic! As long as mom would fold it over nicely and straighten you out before you step away, I say go for it! 🙂

    I’m wearing a blusher because I feel like it looks really special and it’s one of the traditional aspects I wanted in our ceremony. I’m just wearing it until we finish walking down the aisle and then my dad will flip it and I’ll have a nice puffy veil for the rest of the ceremony 😀  It makes me feel like a bride.

    I love how blushers look, but traditionally one was worn to prevent the groom from seeing glimpsing the bride in the days of arranged marriages. That’s a premise I just can’t get behind so Im skipping a veil entirely. But if you love the tradition of flipping a blusher up, then do it.

    Blushers aren’t really my thing, I think they look a bit busy (generally speaking). I have seen some lovely ones, though.
