Ladies – I don’t know if I’m comfortable wearing a veil. But I know my Mom wants to buy one for me. Did you wear a veil? How long did you wear it? Did you cover your face while walking down the aisle? I feel like I don’t even remember whether brides at the weddings I attended recently wore veils!

Yes, elbow length, did not cover face. Most weddings I’ve seen the bride wore a veil

I wore one since my mom requested it, she didn’t ask for much. I got a $4 veil on Amazon and rocked that. I definitely didn’t cover my face, seems too old school for me. As soon as the wedding was over, off came the veil for reception fun.

Yes, a cathedral length veil with lace around the edges from my great-grandmother’s veil. It was my favorite part of my whole look!

I won’t be wearing a veil but my dress has a long train with a lot of beading detail on it so I want that to stand out when I’m walking down the aisle.

I originally was very anti veil. I was sure that I was NOT going to wear one.
Then the Bee introduced me to cathedral veils. I fell in love.
I ended up getting a 3 tiered cathedral veil on etsy. The only time I regretted it was when a huge gust of wind came along and almost ripped all my hair out along with the veil during pictures in the park.
I did not wear it over my face, but I got the shortest tier made in a length that would work if I changed my mind.
I took it out part way through pictures. (The afore mentioned wind helped :/ )
Have you thought about a birdcage veil?
This was my veil

I didn’t wear one. I tried some on, but I knew I didn’t want one. The woman who sold me my dress had me try on a bunch and she said usually women cry when they ‘complete’ the dress with the veil, so she knew, when I was not enthused, that I was not meant to wear one 😀

I thought, and still think veils are silly, beautiful on other brides but doesn’t fit my style. I wore one though, it completeed the look I was going for. Looking back at pictures I am glad I had one. A hairpiece did not work and flowers did not fit with the rest of the wedding. It was a simple one layer elbow length with a rhinestone trim. It came off as we finished taking pictures post ceremony. We have a picture of my husband holding the veil and I am looking at the camera throwing my heels off. Then I felt more like me and it was time to party!

Scarlett11: I don’t think my look would have been complete without the veil! Mine was a two tier waist length. I didn’t cover my face.

I may go for an elbow length veil not covering my face for the look but I feel weird about the connotations of chastity and arranged marriage, groom not seeing the bride and such.

I don’t know if i want one because it may overshadow the tiara I plan to wear. So maybe not.

I think your only a Brude once were a veil. I made mine cost me 8 dollars they are really not hard to make. Tule a bit of thread and a comb. I sewed on bling but that just matched my dress.

When else in your life will you wear a veil?

Scarlett11: I don’t think anyone really associates veils with that anymore for weddings. It never even crossed my mind when I was making my decision. I just liked the floaty ethereal quality it gave my overall ‘look’.

Elbow length, did not cover my face. Wear one! You’ll never have another opportunity to put one on (hopefully) 🙂
