Just a question – I’ve tried on a few veils and some were double veils with one layer over my face. I LOVE the way this looks (usually) but I feel like I never see it anymore! Did anyone wear their veil this way, or plan to? And did you have your dad/mom/whoever walked you down the aisle pull it up and over, or did you wait for your husband to do it?
I’m so confused. sigh. Any pictures? Please help!

I haven’t seen it with my friends recently, but I do know two gals who’d planned to. One decided not to wear her veil at all, and the other never got her blusher in the chaos of the day, so while I haven’t seen it lately, I do know some gals who intended to. 🙂

It’s called a blusher. : ) I am TOTALLY wearing one. The first wedding I remember seeing was that one from 101 Dalmatians, when he lifts the blusher to kiss her…I didn’t even want to get married, I was a total tomboy, and my heart STILL went pitter-patter.

I think they’re completely romantic. I’m wearing one for my wedding and keeping it down until the moment our minister says ‘you can kiss the bride’. So awesome!
But it’s completely up to you. Having the person who walks you down the aisle raise the blusher is completely fine. My dad’s going to raise mine just for a second to give me a kiss and then put it in place again.
Just make sure it’s long enough when pulled forward. I saw a bride recently on a tv program who wore one that didn’t seem long enough and it looked awkward.

I see them a lot for church weddings =) I’m not using a blusher but I think they do have a very romantic feeling. I wish we could upload pictures I have a few cute ones… =/

@vabride2011: Yeah like Reese Witherspoon in Sweet Home Alabama?! Eww, I HATED her veil in that! It hit right above her already overly-pronounced jawline. So awkward!!
Anyway, yes I really want to wear a blusher too! I love the idea of keeping it down all the way until “you may now kiss the bride,” but I’m a little worried that I’ll be bawling my eyes out and like reaching underneath there trying to awkwardly wipe my tears away hahah!!

I guess I thought ‘blusher’ was literally not much past your chin/shoulders, kinda like a longer birdcage… do you still call the longer ones (down almost to your waist even) a blusher?
Anywho, I’m getting married in a very non-religious ceremony in a non-church setting… is it still ‘appropriate’ for me to wear one, and have my dad flip it back at the end of the aisle?
Don’t want to offend the Wedding Gods or anything 🙂

@KristenGotMarried: look up outside wedding veils with blusher on google images theres a few pictures of people getting married outdoors wearing one and it looks very classy!

@KristenGotMarried: I think that’s completely fine! Modern/American use of the blusher doesn’t have any religious connotation. 🙂

I WAS going to wear my veil over the face. I ordered a 2 tier veil, but it appears to be very big and silly looking on me. The good thing she didn’t make a single veil, but just 2 separate veils of different sizes. So I will probably wear only 1 of them. I don’t know yet.

A blusher is traditional in a Jewish ceremony. The groom is supposed to put the veil over his bride’s face (bedeken) before the ceremony. However, it is acceptable in any kind of ceremony.
NotFroofy and I intended to use them. She had a two-layer veil and intended to put one layer over her face. I had a detachable blusher made for mine. However, both of us ended up forgetting and just having the extra layer behind us on the wedding day.

I wore my veil over my face! 🙂 It stayed over my face until the words “You may kiss your bride” and then my husband lifted it off. 🙂

@KristenGotMarried: I’m wearing it over my face and one of my BMs will pull it back over my head. It’s a cathedral length veil, which was something I orginally didn’t think I wanted but it looks fab with dress and I love how it feels. I’m sorry I haven’t got any pics.
