For the longest time, I wanted to wear a floral crown with ribbons hanging down the back. I ended up receiving my birdcage veil from from fellow Bee, and it just worked perfectly.

I am! The woman I bought my dress from spent a fortune getting a veil made with the exact Alencon lace used in the dress – and it is gorgeous. So I couldn’t not wear it, even though it’s a little grander than I thought I would want. It’s cathedral length and I originally thought I would go with fingertip length.

@dv3849: Tacky is such a horrible word, don’t ever think that about ANYthing if it makes you happy. I think your veil is lovely, it really fits your dress!

@alysee: I am absolutely wearing a veil. When else in your life do you get to wear a cascading piece of gorgeousness. It is a beautiful accessory that distinguishes the bride.
I plan on saving mine to frame, hang over a bassonet, and give to future generations. I spent a pretty penny (actually a lot of pennies) on my veil so I want to get the most use out of it as possible.

I have 2.5 months to decide!
I didn’t like regular veils on me. My dress is quite simple and casual, and long veils made me look … I don’t know, overly formal? I do like birdcage veils but I can’t decide if they will look dated. I also have my mother’s Juliet cap veil, which is in perfect condition, but maybe doesn’t go with my dress, either. Sigh.

@alysee: Yes, a comb veil, for ceremony only. I love photos with a veil blowing, and I felt more bridal in it. My dress is quite simple. I’ll also have a sparkly headband that I hope to wear for ceremony and reception.

I’m wearing one. My wedding dress is dark champagne and a sheath style so I really want to drive home the bridal moment with a veil. I’m changing into a red dress (fi’s cultural tradition) for my reception so I won’t wear a veil then. A red veil makes me think of beetlejuice.

@alysee: I am not sure. I want to wear a small birdcage but Fiance doesn’t want me to wear anything like that.

No, I feel like I’d look silly. I love them on other brides, though!

I’m wearing a tea-length dress. I had really wanted to wear a birdcage veil that had a little hat on a hairclip.
But the ivory veil the DB consultant put on me matched my dress really well. Plus, I found a vintage mantilla lace cap as my head piece. We’re having a 1950s themed wedding. So, yes to veil!
I’m getting my dress and petticoat altered to look like it’s from 1950s. The dress I have is A-line and it looks too modern. (Circle hoop under-skirts are out of the question as they poof upwards as you sit!)
Dress and veil together:

No, we didn’t follow the tradition timeline and moved in, had 2 babies and now getting married so I don’t feel comfortable wearing one. Going to get a pretty hair thing 🙂
