I am having a destination wedding (not yet decided on beach or gazebo venue for ceremony) and am wondering if I should even bother with purchasing a veil.
Not totally crazy on the look and not traditional bride really so I am wondering if others agree that ditching the veil all together is a good idea.

Nope, not necessary at all. They’re definitely a lovely, classic touch if that’s what you’re after, but they are 100% expendable. You can look just as lovely and bridal with flowers, some type of hair jewelry, or nothing at all.

Personal preference for each bride, IMO. I didn’t have one and knew I didn’t want one from the start.

Veil is not necessary. I see a lot of brides here (Greek Island & Beach Weddings – make the sums…) and out of those, not even 10% I’d guess, wear a veil. Most wear some form of flower, jewel clip or hairband. Those that DO wear veil – tend to wear longer veils – as they look quite awesome in the pics billowing in the breeze.

I don’t think a veil is necessary at all for a destination wedding. I think its a nice touch for a church ceremony but I am not wearing one to mine.

Not at all! I wore a ballgown and went without one :).

Necessary? No. But much of what we do for weddings now-a-days isn’t “necessary.” Lol. Some people like them and some don’t. Everyone has a personal preference or a preference that is dictated more by venue – I can see a veil getting in the way at a beach ceremony.

A veil is not necessary because it’s just an accessory, just like anything else in the clothing department! Even the wedding dress is not necessary…

I have no desire to wear a veil. I think some brides look wonderful in a veil (certain dresses, venues, etc) & there are brides who look just as wonderful without a veil. I def think (IMO) that if there is no veil, there needs to be something, whether it be a flower or a headband or whatever.

I had a destination wedding, no veil. I think even if I had a church wedding I would have skipped the veil. I had a hair-flower instead.

I ditched the veil. $150 for a piece of lace to plop on my head? No thanks. That and I’m not traditional so it would have felt weird.
