Lots of brides don’t wear veils, there is no rule that you must wear one and it’s not strange to not wear one.  I didn’t wear one, I wore a pretty hair comb on one side.

I bought a little birdcage veil (bandeau type) that didn’t work for me. I think I’m just going to put in a nice hair comb and call it good. I am going pretty untraditional with my wedding dress too, so I don’t feel the need to wear the veil anyway.

I’m not wearing a veil either. I looked up the whole meaning behind wearing one and I thought it was silly. I think more and more brides are not wearing them anymore.

Nope! I did not – beach wedding.. didn’t want one swirling around during the ceremony haha.

 

If you like the look of the veil but don’t want to shell out hundreds of dollars, check out Etsy!

I’m skipping the veil and doing a pretty hairpiece instead. I knew I wouldn’t  be wearing it all night, so it seemed silly to me to spend all that money on something I’d wear for the ceremony plus photos. Plus, I’m doing an outdoor wedding so I thought it might just be a pain if it’s windy.

I didn’t wear a veil – seemed too fussy to me.  Do whatever makes you feel best!

I’m doing a birdcage, b/c it seemed like a nice compromise b/t a big veil (which I didn’t want) and no veil (which might disappoint my more traditional FIL’s).

Nope not wearing one- we are having a beach wedding, and I just have no interest in wearing one. I’m wearing my hair down with a large flower clip.

vdaybee214:  I’m not married yet, but I I’m not wearing a veil. They get stuck, blow all over the place, and get taken off the second the ceremony is over.

That said, it’s easy to make a veil. My cousin wanted a cathedral length veil ($400-$500) and made it for about $30. She said it was super easy.

I’ll be wearing my hair in a very loose updo and am looking for the perfect headpiece to go with my dress…definitely no veil! I’d love to see some more pics too…

They aren’t essential. I wasn’t going to have one. I was going to have a flower crown. But then I found a beaded headband and fell in love with a chapel length veil – the last thing I thought I wanted.
