I’m going with a traditional, elbow length veil.

I am wearing a cathedral length veil with no blusher. I tried on the blusher and it felt very strange.

Either no veil or a birdcage veil…I really don’t like the idea of anything in my face and I honestly don’t think veils are very pretty in general…of course, there are exceptions…I have seen some pretty veils, but they’re just not my cup of tea.

chapel length with no blusher. My dress has some lovely detailing on the straps at the back and i didn’t want to cover this up too much with an additional layer from a blusher. I love the romance you get from a longer veil.

I’m not a very traditional bride, I think longer veils are beautiful… but I’m leaning toward buying a tea length dress so I’m most likely going to go with just a birdcage veil.

Bird cage. Veils are more expensive than I thought from bridal salons.

Chapel length drop veil with the front flipped back (I really hate the feeling of a layer of tulle in front of my face – claustrophobia anyone?)

I have a regal length veil. Not decided whether I will wear it as a drop veil, a mantilla, or a mantilla with a detachable blusher yet. I really like drop veils, but I’m just not sure of the practicalilty of it. I mean, who will lift it and when will they lift it? I’m not being given away. I could do a “Kate Middleton” and have my father lift it when I reach the end of the aisle, I guess. Or I could have it in place throughout the ceremony, and then either lift it myself or have Fiance lift it before the signing of the register (the traditional way). I guess that I could even choose to follow a tradition which is usually associated with Judaism, but which is theoretically applicable to all of the “People of the Book”… I could walk to the end of the aisle, have Fiance lift and then replace it, and then lift it myself just before the signing of the register. I think the latter idea would be a bit odd though. A lot of people wouldn’t understand the reason behind it.

Has anyone else thought about the practicality of this?

I wore a fingertip veil with a blusher.  The Mr. wanted the blusher (not that he knew what it was called).  He loved the traditional look of it.  The guy didn’t ask for much for the wedding so if that is what he wanted I could certainly provide that for him for the very short length of time it took me to talk up the aisle.
