Are you wearing a 2 layer or a 1 layer? I’m asking because some days I want to have that “bridal look” with the blusher while walking down the aisle, but then sometimes I don’t really want all of that in front of my face.
Ugh. I’m a really indecisive person, and so I’m just wanting input and what you all are doing =]
Also, I tried the whole birdcage veil, and was not feeling it. Lol

I am wearing a blusher, and I NEVER thought I would. I thought it would look old fashioned and I planned on one layer.
Don’t laugh, but after seeing Kate Middleton’s blusher…I realized how romantic and lovely it looks! And the blusher gets lifted pretty quickly, so I just think it’s a nice touch.
🙂 Go for it if you like it!

I’m wearing a two-layer *but* I’m not wearing it over my face. I just like the way it looks and how it adds volume. Honestly I bought my veil as an accessory only, not for any purpose like wearing it over my face for tradition or whatnot. I like it either way on other brides, just for me it was all about how pretty it was. Lol

I had a “drop veil”. It was one circle secured on top of my head. The “blusher” part got pulled back during the ceremony, so from the back it looked like two layers. I didn’t really want a veil at all, but needed to do so due to religious obligation. This was the simplest one I could come up with. Just cut a circle in some tulle, glued some rhinestones around the trim, and we were done.

I’m wearing a blusher because I am hell bent on making my dad cry =D

I am wearing a veil because it will make my mom happy and I don’t care either way (my sister refused and my mom was upset). However I do not plan on wearing a blusher over my face – who knows, I may have a 2nd layer just for the look. I am definitely not a birdcage veil kind of girl though. That’s all I’ve figured out.

one layer- when I tried on the blusher, I sneezed, and I took that as as sign that the blusher is not for me…

I wore a 3 layer. Cathedral length, elbow length and a blusher. The blusher and cathedral were for the ceremony, then I had a shorter one to wear for the reception. It worked out really well for me.

i’m stuck, i really want a veil… i never thought i would have really short hair, but the bridal shop assistant convinced me it would be nice with my short hair. i tried all sorts and loved everyone. and with a tiara… get me i’m not a bling person.
i just have to decide on the length, the jewel type, how many layer, the typr of gather …arrh so many choices lol …..
i’m kind of hoping my mum can find hers, so i can wear hers instead. (my something borrowed)

I’m having a single tier beaded cathedral-length veil. I’m pretty dead-set against having a blusher as we’re having an egalitarian humanist ceremony and I don’t think it works well together.

I am having a single layer beaded veil, no blusher for me 🙂

I had a one layer veil that was double edged to look like two layer. I didn’t like a lot of material and Darling Husband loved the double edge so we found a happy compromise. I thought I wanted a blusher or birdcage and I just don’t like stuff in my face- I have bad enough eyesight as it is.

I have a two layer one. I had wanted a circle cut veil but it wouldnt have worked well with my hair style. I need a blusher due to cultural tradition. I love it though. It really hit me I was getting married when the bridal consultant put the blusher in front of me.

I didn’t go with the blusher..just felt old school to me.
