I feel like most people wear their veils this way….I don’t see too many brides with their veil covering their faces. My veil could be made with or without a blusher, I feel like most are made this way.

This is very common

The veil was also a way of hiding the bride’s face, so the groom didn’t know what she looked like (and thus less likely to refuse to marry her) before after he said the vows. 

My grandmother has a veil that she and her daughters wore, and she’s offered it to me to wear. I want to see if I like the way it looks with my dress, but if I wear a veil it will be that one and it won’t cover my face but be pinned in my hair. It’s a fairly common way of wearing them.

The vast majority of veils are worn so they do not cover the face. I wore one pinned in my hair but not covering my face. This is quite common.

Here is my veil it doesn’t cover my face at all… 

I think most brides don’t cover their faces anymore

Veils that are made to cover your face a completely different style. They are usually double  with one part shorter. I persknally don’t like the look of the covered face and always knew I’d wear it the other way. As most have said, that’s more common these days.

I’m wearing a regular veil and a blusher that covers my face. It’s more traditional. However it’s a personal choice. Most brides don’t wear the blusher.

I wore a bubble veil that didn’t cover my face.

I don’t think I’ve seen anyone on here or IRL with a veil covering their face…
