    I have NO IDEA right now!  So I’ll read the posts too : )  I wanted to wait until my dress came in, but it looks like it might still be up to a month….

    I’m not. I’m having a DW and I’m wearing a long white dress, but my whole look is pretty simple. I never really thought about wearing a veil.

    Why not? Is more of the way I look at it!

    Ya they are kinda goofy and they don’t make much sense but they are very bridal!

    This is the one time in my life that I am going to be a bride and so I might as well do it up!

    And also the veil gets the big reaction for me. When I found THE dress it wasn’t until the veil was put on that everyone started crying (even though I had a veil on with a previous dress that was a no)!

    Then again last week at a fitting a friend of mine came who hadn’t seen my dress and she got all chocked up when I put on the veil!

    So I guess my only reason why I am wearing a veil is because I love how bride-y it makes me feel!

    I’m wearing a birdcage veil that covers my whole face.  I’ve always imagined myself wearing a veil when I got married.  I think it’s so romantic when the groom lifts the veil for the first kiss! 

    And the best part, I got it for $8.83 in Downtown L.A. at the Fashion District.  It’s very simple and need to attach the comb I got to go with it (included in the price above); I have a fabric flower that matches our colors and my grandmother’s broach that I’ll attach too!

    I’m not a veil fan.  I’m not wearing one because I felt like I was playing dress up when I tried one on, rather than feeling beautiful.  I think it just differs from person to person.  I did like the funky look of a birdcage veil, but FI didn’t like those.  I say try some on and see how you feel…

    I was very adamant about not wearing a veil, but the last time I tried my gown on, the gave me a mantilla veil to try on with my gown, and I fell in love. They wanted $200.00 for that veil, and I didn’t want to pay that much for one, so I made my own. I am really happy about the way it turned out. And I am happy that I am going to be wearing a veil. I think it completes my outfit. And, yes, a veil is more formal and traditional.

    I’m kind of on the fence about it – I think a veil makes you look more bridal… so, I’ll probably do it (if I can find one that’s nice but doesn’t cost the ridiculous prices I’ve been seeing.

    i never liked the look of the veil because i’m not into that whole “bridal” look. too traditional for my taste. i’m not into the princess thing either so you would NEVER catch me with a tiara. but some women, i must say, look BEAUTIFUL with a veil.

    I was adamantly agains a veil, but my mom insisted early on. I figured I’d find a way to get my way, but over the course of the last year and a half I’ve fallen in love with cathedral length veils! I got bride fever I guess.

    Originally I had no intention of wearing a veil–I always thought they looked costume-y.  My mother talked me into trying one on.  The one they gave me was short.  I told them that if I was going, I was going all the way   They got me a chapel length, which I liked much better.  I will wear it a little higher on my head–frames my face and makes me look taller.  It’s very plain and was only $69 at David’s Bridal.  That’s about all I’m willing to spend for the 20 minutes I’ll be wearing it:)

    Yes, and it’s because I think they are soooo pretty!
