I may wear a blusher down the ailse. I have a two layer veil, and so I am going to wait to the last minute to decide.
But my question is, who lifts it? I like the idea of my fiance lifting it right after my dad gives me away to him. But that means that my dad will have to kiss me through the blusher. No big deal, right?
And the fact that my FI probably won’t be happy that he has to do it. He will be afraid that he will do it wrong. But that’s OK. I like the idea that I get to look into his eyes while he does it.
Who else has used, or is planning on using a blusher, and how did you do it?

I believe that your dad normally kisses you on the cheek through the blusher. Also I think that traditionally your new husband would lift the blusher before he kisses you, so you would have it down during the ceremony. But obviously you can do whatever seems like the right thing for you. I’m no help – although I do have a veil I’m not going to wear any part of it over my face. Just not a look that I like, and anyway our wedding is not that formal.

yeah, i think its pure personal preference.
i was sooo torn over to wear the blusher or not….in fact, i had a very hard time selecting a veil period.
i finally broke down and showed my FI several pictures of me in veils that i tried on with street clothes to see what he thought.
turns out he doesnt like the blusher and wants to be able to see my face clearly as i walk down the aisle. since i found it a bit hot under that thing anyway, there went the idea of the blusher!
if you’re ok with it, perhaps you guys could practice lifting the veil so he could feel more comfortable doing it. it could still hold the same magic for you on your wedding day and he wont be worried about messing up!

Would it be ok if you wore a 2T veil and not have it cover your face?

Sure, I was only planning on a 2 tier veil not over my face, but I thinki some brides look so soft and beautiful with the blusher. So I’m going to wait and see, but i need a plan in case I do decide to wear it.
And I definatly don’t want to wear it during the whole ceremony! Thats just way too much. And I think FI will be able to see my face just fine as I walk down the aisle under my blusher, right?

I’m glad you asked this Candi because I’ve been wondering the same thing. I am planning to wear a 90" drop veil, but being that it is extremely shear I don’t mind wearing it down throughout the ceremony…. however my FI previously stated that he doesn’t like the blusher idea. I am completely in love with this veil now though (and it’s really the only one that looks good with my dress)… so I’m going with it, but I feel like I’m going to have to prep the FI as to what to do ahead of time. Hopefully there will be no fumbles up at the alter 🙂

I am going to wear the blusher down the aisle. Hopefully this will make me more comfortable with all the guests staring at me as I go down the asile! At the end my father will do a formal handoff with no kiss. My groom will lift the veil. My bridal salon told me to make sure the groom knows how to lift the blusher – he has to lift it over your head, then tug it down. Otherwise it will be all poofy and crazy in the back if he doesn’t tug it down.

Tradition in my area is that the father raises the veil, kisses the bride and hands her off to be the grooms problem from now on. (We have upity women in my family so that’s what my dad and uncles always say. thank god you will be his problem now.)

Tradition too for my family is father raises the veil, kisses the bride on the cheek, shakes the grooms hand and hands the bride off. Hehe, I like tberry’s family-sounds like my own 🙂
