Hmm that’s a pretty long veil for a beach wedding… Personally if it were me I wouldn’t wear a veil for the beach, but there are plenty of fantastic pictures on here where people have had long veils. It may be a good idea to have someone hold it, or could you possibly tack it to the dress somewhere? Without anyone knowing of course.

I say just let it blow in the wind though, depending on the fullness and if it has any embellishment on it, it might weigh itself down a bit. I saw a picture (below) of a long veil blowing in the wind and it’s just beautiful.

I’m getting married on the beach but not doing a veil just for that reason.  I’m worried it will blow around during the ceremony- keep your Maid/Matron of Honor on it to adjust as necessary!

Only problem with letting it blow is that it tends to twist up into a tubular clump, or blow straight up, or straight forward during the ceremony. Those gorgeous flowy pics are generally set ups for the photog after the ceremoy, where someone fluffs it up into the air and dives out of the shot.  I’d have someone hold it the way you’d hold a train as you walk down the aisle, then have that same person on hand to straighten it as you proceed back down the aisle afterwards.

Did you watch William & Kates`s wedding?  It would be just like Pippa carrying her train, but your veil instead 🙂
