    I’m not wearing one. It wouldn’t go with my knee-length sheath dress; moreover, I wouldn’t feel comfortable with it on, and I want to be as relaxed as possible on the big day.

    Yes — I think they’re pretty and I found one to match my dress. It has no religious/spiritual/significant meaning to me. I just think they’re pretty.

    I’m voting yes because I’m unsure but leaning towards yes. I’m eloping in a fun short dress so I’m thinking a birdcage veil.

    I wasn’t planning on wearing one, but it just looked good with my dress so I decided to go for it!  I’m taking it off after the ceremony though.

    I am wearing a looooong veil for the ceremony then taking it off for reception. I agree that they look awesome in pictures. Its funny though, I never thought I’d like them and i remember hearing the guy from say yes to the dress say ” without a veil you’re just a pretty girl in a white dress” … it made me laugh and i always think of that now 😛

    Imma wear a veil cape. It’s going to be custom made. So it will look like this in the front…

     

    And this detailing in the back

    @trustingbride:  I’m doing veil for ceremony and pics, then taking it off. It actually makes my dress look more elegant and we’re getting married in this cavernous old Gothic Revival style church and it’s a chapel length veil which will really add some pizzazz to make sure I don’t disappear in the huge old church.

    I think I am, still waiting on the fingertip one to arrive, got rid of the cathedral length one, it was really too much for me.

    I want a bridal, sparkley headpeice though to go with my art noveau, elegant look. The thing is they are soo effing expensive…like anything made my Justice of the Peace is what I want, but can’t afford.

     

    I think I found a happy medium though…and I’m hoping it will work out.

    I never thought I would wear a veil. In fact I had one instance where I almost ripped one off in the middle of a bridal store. But, in the end the designer had one that matched my dress and I fell in love with it. I figure what other time can I wear a big veil.

    I probably won’t because I think with my headpiece it would be too busy. I’m experimenting with adding a little tulle to my headpiece, though, just as a nod to the veil tradition.

    I’m not because they honestly look terrible on me. I had never really wanted one, but out of a spirit of “try anything once” let the ladies at the dress shop put one on me. My mother, fiancé’s mother, the lady, and I all instantly agreed to pass on that option. So, a sparkly brooch it is!

    I am not for a few reasons. I think takes away from the hair and dress. I am not really bothered by “tradition” so I don’t feel the need to wear one. I just generally don’t like them. Plus it’s just another cost/ another thing to worry about.

    I’m going to wear one during the ceremony and photos and remove for reception.  I just think I’ll feel more like a bride.
