    I have seen veils like this! I personally prefer veils that are just in the back of the head, but then again that is probably because I like the look of the veil under the hair and not covering it.

    I just found out my Love does want a veil just not with the blusher.  I’m adding a veil now.  His first marriage and he deserves it.  I think they really add to the “bridal” look.  So I’m happy.  🙂

    I was on the fence about a veil, and was originally planning on wearing one for the church, but not for any of the pictures.  It ended up being a very humid day, so I left my veil on throughout pictures to help protect my hair, and I’m SO glad I did.  The veil looks so gorgeous and special in the pictures and really made me feel like a bride.  I did not wear a blusher (the veil that goes in front of your face).  It didn’t feel right on me and I wanted everyone to see my face.  Blushers are becomming more uncommon and a bit outdated, though some brides (typically very conservative brides) still wear them.  

    The other thing you can do is choose a really sheer single tiered veil you can see your hair and dress thru.  That is what I did.

    I wore a drop veil, and it covered my face until my husband lifted it. I’ll be honest, I really loved it. Veils are sheer-your face is still pretty visible. Plus, for myself, the experience was more important than the pictures. Would a first look have improved the timeline? Sure, but I wanted the experience of my husband seeing me for the first time while walking down the aisle. Would my makeup be more visible without a veil? Probably, but the experience of wearing one was more important to me.

    I’m not saying my choices were better, but they were better for me. I realize the origin of the veil is controversial, but I don’t care. Many traditions have patriarchal origins. I found it romantic and mysterious, like I was an awesome present.
