Hi there!

I’m a recently married, 39 yr. old.  I wore a fingertip length veil, but chose not to wear it over my face.  I think it looked lovely.  I say GO FOR IT!

Enjoy!

My opinion:  a veil is not too young for anyone.  However, you should probably only have it hang down behind you.  A blusher that covers your face would probably only make sense on a 20-something bride.

I know some people seem to think that veils is too “young” for a 30-something bride, but I think you should wear whatever makes you feel beautiful on your wedding day.

I am going through the same thoughts. I’ll be 45 on my wedding day, and it is my first, too!

I think you should wear whatever makes you feel beautiful. My first fitting is next month, so I plan to try a few different things. I guess personally, I would feel weird about wearing a veil over my face. But, that’s me.

elisslp, GORGEOUS!!!!!

Kelly – Awwww…thank you SOOOO much for your sweet words!  You are very kind!   I was going to get a cathedral veil at first, since my gown was cathedral length…but, then I decided to borrow my girlfriends fingertip length veil instead.  I actually loved the length!  It wasn’t so long that it dragged on the ground, but it didn’t cut the back of my gown in half either. 

Here’s another pic (can you tell I just got them back…heehee):

Enjoy the planning process and treasure all of the special moments!

I say go for it.  You probably look younger than most 29 year olds.  I am 41.  Originally, I had no intention of wearing a veil.  I tried one on to placate my mother but ended up really liking something plain and chapel length.  If I am going to be a bride, I ain’t goin’ to be half-assed about it:)

I think that a veil for your first wedding is absolutly fine but I think a fingertip or elbow length veil worn behind your face is the most appropriate.
