I was wondering if anyone is weiring a veil for their encore marriage. I wasn’t planning on it, but have become captivated by the bird cage style and thought I would like to wear one during the ceremony. I have heard lots of people say (at bridal shops, and in chatting with friends and family) that it’s not considered “appropriate”, but I also notice that in many areas those old ideas a ebbing. SOOOOOO…just wondered if anyone is wearing one!
This is sort of what I was thinking I’d like to wear…
I could take out the little veil part in the front and leave the fascinator in my hair….I just love it and think its so dreamy and romantic…but I also don’t want to look silly…I already feel like I’m pushing the limits a little bit by wearing a wedding dress, having a wedding, etc, etc, etc…(you know the routine 🙂

@KelliP: great minds think alike! this is EXACTLY what i want to do too! only i want my birdcage made of russian veiling instead of tulle, and i want to go all feathers with the fascinator, lol.
appropriate my foot. traditionally, veils had nothing to do with how many times you were married. (actually, since most marriages were arranged and the couple never met before their wedding day, and brides were generally VERY young, they usually had more to do with hiding the brides tears, and making sure the groom committed to her before seeing her.)

I’m wearing a veil for my encore wedding. Reason # 1 is that it’s my FH’s first wedding is he is very traditional. And Reason # 2 ……it completes the outfit! LOL

Not considered appropriate? Who gives two shits. Wear what you want to wear.
Hearing stuff that like pisses me off. .
I don’t care if you’ve been married 10 times or if your an 80 year old first time bride, wear what you want.

I am not wearing a veil, but will be wearing flowers in my hair. I am getting married on a beach and I think the veil would drive me nuts blowng in the wind. Has nothing to do with me being an encore bride.
