    I really love the look of blushers but honestly i didn’t put much thought into it –  The veil i bought liked had one so i wore it 🙂

    I didnt. I already have high cheekbones and didnt want to accentuate it anymore, plus i was going for a very natural look

    I had planned to–in fact, was insistent on it. However, Darling Husband and I decided to walk down the aisle together (LONG story), so it was kind of pointless.

    Yes.  For me, it was important, because of the traditional significance placed on the blusher in terms of what it represents — purity and virginity.  Because of my faith, I “waited” until I was married, so I really wanted to wear a blusher. 

    However, I know not everyone thinks this way about blushers.  I have friends who also waited until after they were married before having sex, but they chose not to wear blushers, and I have had friends who did not wait and were living with their S.O.s and choose to wear blushers.

    I didn’t. My veil had one, but I didn’t like the way it looked over my face, plus I wanted to see where I was going since I wasn’t able to wear my contacts that day (long story!)

    @Brielle:  My understanding was the blusher on the veil came from the days of arranged marriages–so the groom wouldn’t bail if the bride was ugly (also, the tradition of not seeing each other before).

    I didn’t, simply because I thought they seemed outdated.

    I didn’t, put I think it’s a preference thing.  I didn’t really like how I looked with the blusher.

    @peaches13: You could certainly be right about that.  I’ve never actually researched this.  I had just been told that through the years. The only regret I had about wearing the blusher is that, in order to have both the blusher and the veil look good on my head, I had to wear the veil on the top of my head instead of at the back of my head, which I had originally planned to do.  I removed the blusher after the ceremony, but had the veil put back in its orignal position (top of my head) for all of the pictures, and, since we didn’t end up finishing our family pics until the end of the reception, no one ever was able to see my awesome “updo” the entire night. So, I was definitely disappointed about that part.
