I haven’t gotten married yet, but I will not be wearing a veil.  I find the whole symbolism of it to be contrary to my beliefs.

My wedding is two weeks away but i have actually never ever thought of wearing the veil! It just never sticked me as a part of the wedding look of the modern bride. PS I am getting married in a protestant church.

I’m not wearing one. I knew right away that I didn’t want to, but my little sister was adamant. She said that “97% of men say that the veil is what makes them see you as a bride.” (I think she forgot that I’m marrying a girl…) I tried one on for her benefit, and it was totally bizarre. I told her that it was the strangest thing I had ever seen, and I took that thing off immediately. My wedding hasn’t happened yet, but I’ll share photos when it does!

I didn’t wear one. We had an outside, somewhat informal wedding and it just didn’t go with the colorful bohemian look I envisioned. No regrets!

mcp8011:  lol at your sister and the men comment – sheesh!

I don’t think I am going to… My wedding is in November so I have a little time to decide. 2 reasons why….

1. Because it felt really weird when I tried veils on…

and 2. Because the back of my dress looks like this:

I want to show the back off! 🙂

No veil or birdcage. I always envisioned a veil, but when I tried one on I had a visceral reaction to it and quickly took it off. I wore two sparkly combs in the back of my hair.

I didn’t wear a veil. I felt like a veil is too formal, and I just don’t really like them.

mscuppycake:  I went veil free.  I LOVE veils, but it just didnt’ feel liek the right look once I’d bought my dress.  I was having a beach wedding and ended up with a pretty traditional dress.  I felt too covered up and heavy with a veil (if that makes any sense).  My intention was to go with a fresh hair flower, but it kept falling out so I just went without.  It looked great (sorry no pics, I don’t post personal photos).

I am doing a huge ass veil for the ceremony, and then it is coming OFF! Haha, so I will be “veil-less” for the majority of the event.

i am having a DW on the beach so i didnt want to have to worry about a veil going crazy if we get a breeze.  Also, my FI asked me not to wear a veil anyways.  Instead i bought a super blingy headband –

I’m not planning on a veil. It seems too formal for our wedding, and I really don’t like things on my face or whipping around my head. I’m doing sparkly hair combs instead.

No veil for me, even though our wedding is quite formal and fairly traditional (not in a church though).  I just have never liked veils (my mom wore a hat, maybe its genetic!).  Also, they are so expensive!
