LOL. That’s a classic line I’ve never heard before!

i personally would never be forced into doing something i absolutely didn’t want.

i didn’t wear a veil.

I think it’s about whatever the bride likes that makes her feel amazing!

That said, I didn’t have a veil. lol

I’m with you; on others they’re beautiful. However veils are not my cup of tea. I did flowers in my bun.

I am not sure what I am going to do on the veil front but your mom is hilarious

I think it is personal taste. I am not a fan of “birdcage” veils at all… on me! I LOVE them on others. I also think a cathedral veil would be too much… on me. On others they look feminine and beautiful. If it doesn’t suit you, or you don’t like it, I don’t think there is a “must” or anything when it comes to veils.

Maybe tell your mother that not all women have hair, so to insinuate that those who don’t are less-than-women is really insulting? (Sorry, going through hair loss issues right now and this quote kind of upsets me.)

I think a veil is a definite personal choice. If you like the look, go for it. If you don’t, wear a nice hairpiece – or nothing at all. Hopefully, if my current hair treatments go well I’ll be able to showcase my hair in all of its naturally curly beauty so I’m counting on not having to wear a veil (instead I’d like a simple hair piece and to wear my hair down and “wild”).

I love veils, and that’s why I’m wearing one. If you don’t love them, you shouldn’t have to wear it.

I really dislike the idea of a veil.  When I bought my dress, the sales woman put so many different ones on my head, and I just wanted to rip them right off!  They just aren’t for me.  But that is not to say that they aren’t for some.

I am thinking about a birdcage veil instead, just to jazz things up a little 🙂

I bought a birdcage veil to wear, but I’m not completely sold on it. (maybe that’s because I don’t know how to put it on right, ha.) But I’m definitely not a traditional-veil type bride. If you don’t want to wear a veil, don’t. You’ll look beautiful on your day no matter what and everyone will know you’re the bride, so I don’t see why a veil is neccesary.

I am not going to wear a veil.  I don’t like it for myself.  I think you should do whatever you want.

What a funny comment! 

I’m kind of torn on the subject. I think I might end up with a veil, but they didn’t seem very “me” when I tried them on.

The ladies at the bridal salon told me I wouldn’t feel like a bride unless I wore a veil. Maybe that is true for some. For me the fancy hair-do and flowers in my hair were just much more me. After the wedding I showed my husband photos of me with a veil and he said he was glad I didn’t wear one. Go with what you feel most comfortable with.

The day of our wedding:
