Yes, you will definitely want to take it off! It’s possible to bustle a veil, I hear – but they are HEAVY and if you try to wear it all night, dance in it, etc., you will give yourself a raging headache. (Plus, every time someone hugs you, they will inadvertently tug on it). Plan to take it off. It’s a nice excuse to switch out a different headpiece, put a flower or a sparkly clip in your hair instead, etc.

I wore mine for the first look and the ceremony and was very glad to take it off for the reception.  It gets heavy!! I swapped it for a large hairflower so I did not have to mess with it during dancing and mingling

Put it on before I bustled my gown – Darling Husband helped with the underbustle LOL

My friend had a cathedral length mantilla veil and the lace was pretty thick so she only really wore it for the ceremony. I don’t think she wore it to the pictures afterwards or anything.

No lace but mine was very heavily beaded. I did take it off because it was 12 foot long and I didn’t want to get my head tugged backwards if someone stepped on it.

YES, I wore a mantilla cathedral length veil my mom made for me for my ceremony and then put my hair up, sans veil for the reception.
