    I agree with PP, wear your veil for the ceremony then comb afterwards. I know it seems like a hassle, but if you’ve always wanted to wear a veil I def think you should! When will you ever be able to wear a veil again?

    I did hair flowers and a veil for the ceremony. I wasn’t going to wear a veil, especially since I’d figured I’d take it off right after the ceremony – and who wants to pay in the hundreds of dollars for that? And I just wasn’t sold on the veil – if I had LOVED it, that would have been something different. I knew I’d wear flowers in my hair all along. In the end, I bought a cheap veil ($15, single tier, elbow length) on eBay and my mom embellished it for me. There are definitely options for finding inexpensive options if you don’t want to spend much, but do want to wear something for the ceremony. And if you don’t want to wear one at all, the comb is gorgeous by itself and everyone will still know you’re the bride 🙂

    Both! They would look great together. The veil would be impractical for dancing.  Take it off for the reception.

    Oh my goodness, I love the comb. It’s beautiful and it works so well with your dress. I don’t think you even NEED a veil.

    I think both together would be beautiful, and then you could take your veil off after the ceremony if you wanted or leave it on. The comb is gorgeous btw!!

    Yeah, I did both together as well!  I took my veil off before the reception, so that way we had photos of both the veil look as well as with just the hair comb.  I think you’d look lovely with both!

    I didn’t want a veil either, so instead I went with a birdcage veil with a hair comb and removed the birdcage veil after cocktail hour. Everyone loved it. You are only a bride once 😉 I got these items on Etsy…thank goodness too because bridal stores are expensive!

    I’m wearing a hair clip over my veil because it hides the comb of the veil, I think it looks nicer 🙂

    I wore a hair comb with a veil (a single tiered veil so you could see the comb underneath during the ceremony) and removed the veil for the reception.  I was originally planning on removing it before outside photos, but ended up not because it was so ridiculous humid out and I thought it would help protect my hair.  Really glad that I did because the veil look gorgoeus in the photos.  My veil was gorgoeous and only 35 dollars- it was an illusion bridal veil.  If anywhere near you sells them I would recommend them.  I’ve also heard good things about etsy veils.  You definitely don’t need to spend a lot of money for a beautiful veil

    OMG, I LOVE YOUR DRESS!

    I went through the same struggle.  I opted to wear the veil for the ceremony and the hair clip for the reception.  During some of the bride and groom photos outside, I wore both.  It worked out really well and I was super happy with it.
