I wore mine all night with no issues.  I was like you, I didn’t really didn’t want to take the chance of messing with my hair.  It really didn’t faze me all night and it was never an issue to wear it all night.

I wore mine. I think it would only really be an issue if you have a super long veil.

Most of the weddings I’ve been to, the brides have removed their veil for the reception, but it’s just a matter of personal preference.  Your hairstylist should be able to show you the best way to remove it to prevent snagging and messing up your hair, and maybe how to pin some pieces of hair back in place if it does get a little messed up.

If the veil has a simple comb attached to the veil you should be able to just slide it out. it depends on the veil though. Smaller veils wold be fine and probably easy to remove. Catherdral length veils would probably be needed to be taken out at the reception. Have a chat to your hairdresser and see what s/he thinks.

A couple things… I had a friend who wore a long veil and changed to a short veil for the reception… So any damage that was done was basically fixed when veil #2 was inserted.

My hairdresser was a close friend of mine and my photographer’s fiancee.  So, she was able to remove my veil, readjust my decorative comb, and change my hair flower for me 🙂 I realize not everyone can have this experience.

Most veils, however, are very simply to remove because of the comb.  It shouldn’t be a problem! I didn’t want to have to worry about my veil when sitting, dancing, etc 🙂 Just preference, I think

I plan on taking my veil off during my recpetion. I was just planning on leaving my crystal handband and call it a day. I never seen a bride keep their veil on. Best of luck.
