Silly question but I’m not loving the idea of having the veil cover my face as I walk down the aisle but I really like the cathedral length veils and am wondering if anyone has just worn it back for the walk down the aisle. I’ve only been to a few weddings and none of them wore a long veil. Can I just wear it in the back?
Thanks for your help!

It’s usually a religious thing. I asked my rabbi and he said I could do the unveiling, where the groom lifts the blusher to make sure he’s marrying the right person, before the ceremony and then I just took the blusher off for the walk down the aisle.

@artbee:I was going to add that it’s going to be a Reform Jewish wedding, so the unveiling was before signing your ketubah and then you kept it off/back for the whole ceremony?

I wore it for religous reasons. It was kind of awkward and hard to see. lol

If the religious symbolism is important to you (or required of you), then front. Otherwise, I vote back.

@bestbuddies:Haha, good point! I’m a klutz and the not being able to see thing while wearing heels is kind of scary to me.

I think its really old fashioned to do and looks a little odd – but do it how you want to do it! Personally I wouldnt want to have anything obstructing the view of my grooM!

I love pictures of the blusher in front of your face! I’ll probably have my photographer do that for my wedding, however, I don’t actually have a blusher. When I walk down the aisle it’ll just be behind me. In fact, I don’t remember seeing many of my friends with blushers. I say do what you want 🙂

I would say go with whatever you want to wear it. I’ll be wearing mine in the back.

I had a catherdreal length veil and a blusher and I wore both of them back. I thought it looked odd to put the veil over my face.

I’m little miss hard core traditionalist. So the blusher over my face has always been a dream of mine since I had been dreaming up my wedding. I know in the Italian culture we do it because it is believed to keep the “evil eye’ off of you or to keep any bad spirits away on your special day…(Being a Catholic, I really don’t believe to much in the superstition behind all the traditions) I just like keeping the traditions and the culture alive! 🙂 But no veil is great too! I have seen brides do it both ways and they both look stunning…

I’m not wearing a veil at all actually, and I don’t care what anyone says about it! 🙂 So, do whatever you feel comfortable with, as long as there are no religious reasonings you have to follow.
