I understand that most brides wear veils because it’s a part of the bridal attire, but I just hate the concept of it and don’t think I need to symbolize my “purity” to anyone… So, I am going veiless. Are there any other modern brides out there who feel the same way?

I am almost veil less or at least in the traditional sense. I will be wearing a birdcage veil that will look more like a hair ornament than anything and is kinda me “wearing a veil” and sticking my tongue out at everyone at the same time and saying I’m not a conformist! haha

I’m not wearing a veil either, never been a fan of them. I’m having a destination wedding in Mexico so will opt for a flower in my hair instead. Figured that would fit the occassion better.

I may not wear one. I haven’t decided 100% yet. I go to pick up my dress tomorrow so I’ll see how I feel then.
For me its less about the purity thing (i’m wearing white after all) but an extra expense that I’m not sure I need. Also I’m already way more formal than my wedding and that might push it a bit much. Its a comfort thing, not a symbolism to me

I was never interested in wearing a veil to being with, but since my ceremony is on the beach, I will be opting for a flower as well. I visited our venue last week and it was SUPER windy – not veil worthy weather anyway.

I was dead against wearing a veil until a tried on a cathedral length veil with swavorski crystals around the edge. It was AWESOME! Now I am wearing a veil. Go big or go home is my theory I guess. 🙂

I didn’t wear a veil! I wore a really cool/modern headpiece instead.

I’m not partial to veils either. I’m going to make a pretty facinator instead.

I’m wearing a birdcage. To me that’s not really a veil (although it is) because it’s not very traditional. The older people in the family arent very amused by my choice. oh well. Cant please the world! 🙂

I dont think i want to wear a traditional veil, its just not me, but i do love birdcage veils and i think thats the route im going to go. Or else just a cute crystal hair comb or something.
