I plan on taking mine off for the reception.  However, they did give me the option to “bustle” the veil as well.

I wore a cathedral veil for the ceremony, and switched to a shorter matching one for the reception.  The cathedral one was a pain to wear.  Everyone kept stepping on it during our receiving line!

I could do a bustle, but I’ll probably just take it off. 🙂

I left mine on for cocktail hour (wrapped it around my arm) and took it off for the reception.

I took mine off after the ceremony while my dress was getting bustled and replaced it with a beaded hair comb.

I replaced mine with a hair flower. I loved my veil but can’t imagine moving around with it all night.

Didnt have a cathedral veil – mine was fingertip – but even with a veil that long it was getting in the way. Whenever people came up to hug me they would pull the veil down and it would tug on my hair. Even when dancing it was getting in my way. I ended up taking it off while we were eating dinner and I had a hair flower for extra accessory. I cant imagine having a cathedral veil on all night!

I want a cathedral but will only be wearing it for pictures and the ceremony.

My sister wore a cathedral veil for the ceremony and a birdcage veil for the reception. Cathedral veils have a whole lot of material. I didn’t even put it on her until we got to the venue b/c all that steaming would have been in vain =)

@TinyTina: You’re welcome! It is something I had never realized happened until it was happening to me. It was happening all throughout pictures. Even Darling Husband would put his arms around me and pull on it and Id have to be like “babe Im stuck” haha because people just dont realize! I loved the look of my veil and would have loved to keep it on all night but it was irritating me really quickly! A birdcage, hair flower or sparkly headband or accessory is definitely the way to go for a reception!

@TinyTina: Thanks for asking this question. I want a cathedral veil as well, but didn’t think about the issues come with it.

Etsy is great for hair accessories. Also if you do a veil + hairclip/flower/birdcage you’ll get to have two completely looks in your photos. This was my switcheroo:
