Have you tried taking it out of your hair yet? You’d probably figure out a nice way to do this, but you don’t want your hair to get messed up in the process.

I’m concerned about 2 things: it being distracting during the ceremony and it messing up your hair taking the comb out.

Your veil is gorgeous and not too long and girl, you definitely do not look like Mother Theresa 🙂 I would either leave it or do some kind headpiece.

Ha you do have plenty of time but believe me, it is going to fly by! I’ve been engaged for a year and half because of my Fiance being in the military and being deployed and I thought 2 years would never go by but now we are 7 months out and it’s coming up quick! Good luck and you look look beautiful 🙂

I think it looks very nice on you! I don’t think it would be distracting or all that hard to take off… but the penny-pinching side of me thinks spending … what over $100+(?) on that veil to wear it for a 1 minute walk is crazy! If you don’t want it on during the ceremony will you want it on for pictures? I wouldn’t buy it from david’s- I’d find one on etsy or online for much cheaper….

But I like it so I say wear it and wear it as long as possible!

it would be pretty weird to take it out during the ceremony. i’d say either skip it entirely or wear it through the ceremony…it’s very pretty!

I would think it was really, really strange if I was at a wedding and the bride took her veil off during the ceremony. Why even wear one if you’re just going to take it off?

If you think its not right trust your instincts.You should feel you are at your most beautiful.A nice alternative would maybe be a nice french twist hair-do with no embelishments. Your dress has alot of embelishment in the back that you should show off.No veil,keep the hair simple.My opinion.

First of all, I thik the veil looks freakin fantastic on you, and you in NO WAY look like mother teresa!

I think you shoudl either have it, or not, honestlyI think taking it off would cause mroe hassle than its worth, and it is a lot of money to spend on something you’ll wear for a few minutes as you walk down th aisle.

Plus I assume you will want some pictures with it on, and then you’d have to put it on again if you have pics after the ceremony.

LOL…the veil is awesome!  I actually have one that looks a lot like it.  I would totally keep it on during the entire ceremony!  You look so beautiful and delicate in it.  Wear it proudly!
