I know I’ve posted about this before, but I have to make a decision on a veil soon and I am still on the fence. I have never, ever wanted to wear a veil. In fact, I annoyed the lady at the dress store because I refused to wear one. Then, I bought a different dress that has a low-ish back (comes together right above the small of my back) and I feel a tad inappropriate showing that much skin to our guests during the ceremony. It’s an evening wedding and not in a church, so part of me says “to hell with it, don’t wear one”, the other part of me says “woman, some modesty please?!”
The problem is that I cringe every time I think about/look for a veil! Sorry to bees who love them, I think they look fabulous on some people, just not me. So… to wear a veil or not?? (I do not have pics of the back of the dress unfortunately).
Thanks bees – less than 2 months away so my questions seem to be getting a little ridiculous

You definitely do not need to wear a veil! It’s totally up to you. If you’re unsure is there someone you can ask for an honest opinion? A close friend or relative? Someone who might know the ‘audience’ but who also understands where you’re coming from…

I agree with you “to hell with it” go without the veil. It’s your choice. Are you going to be uncomfortable with your bare back to people, if not, then don’t wear it. If you are going to think about people’s eyes on you throught the whole ceremony, then wear one.

I say ‘screw it’ if you feel that strongly about it, plus as you say as it’s an evening do so I think it’s appropriate not to have one.

You don’t have to wear a veil if you don’t want to!! It’s your wedding day 🙂

If you don’t want to wear a veil, I would say don’t wear one. I don’t want a veil either and every time I would go in for my dress or to check out Bridesmaid dresses they would ask. I just told them I don’t want to wear a veil so why spend that much money on something I don’t want.
I am either going to wear a ribbon headband or flower, but you want to go completely without anything then do it. It is your wedding and you want to feel comfortable that day.

Don’t wear one if you don’t want too. I don’t plan on wearing one, I just don’t like how they look on me. I agree they do look good on some people, but for me I’ll pass.
