    Initially lifted for a peck on the cheek by my father during the giving away, then put back down. Then Mr. Scissors lifted it fully for the “you may now kiss the bride!” part. It was lovely.

    My FH does not even want a veil so my Dad will when he presents me.  This is always how I envisioned it any way, so it all worked out perfect.

    I’ve never been a fan of blushers so I’m in the group of “no blusher, just a veil”.  Thta was one thing I was sure on long before I ever started planning.

    I had a blusher at my first wedding.  My husband lifted it at the very end of the ceremony, when the minister said “You may now kiss the bride.”  I had never heard of the father lifting it when he presented the bride to the groom until I joined Weddingbee.  Maybe it’s a regional/cultural thing?

    I would prefer Fiance to do it when he may kiss the bride… but we’re doing a full Catholic mass so I’m wondering if it will be awkward to be sitting up there the whole time with it on for a good 20-30 min… lol

    I ordered a longer blusher that came down below my chest and I was going to have my Fiance lift it when he kissed me, but the wrong blusher came in. It is shorter and I don’t like it as much, so I am just going to have my dad lift it at the end of the aisle.

    I have been reading in several postings regarding whether to use a blusher or not?  I just got married a month ago, had a full catholic mass wedding at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, I used a royal cathedral 2 tier veil.  Royal cathedral is longer than a cathedral length veil, the second tier is 30′ inch in length I used that as my blusher.  At the Cathedral they suggest that both parents walk the bride down the aisle (also the groom is accompanied by both parents down the aisle) this is to honor your parents as they walk with you to the altar. As for the one giving the bride away removes the blusher, in the Catholic Church no one gives the bride away, the bride and groom present themselves for marriage and freely give their consent to marry (no arranged marriages here!); both will be asked this during the ceremony. At the cathedral the mother is the one removing the veil once they arrive at the altar, we hug then the groom gives the mother and father a kiss and a hug, then the father joins the bride and groom’s hands. 

    I think this is a beautiful way of showing their approval publically as well as the groom shows his respect to the her parents with a hug and a kiss to both right before he takes his bride’s hand and talk together to the kneelers at the altar.

    I could hardly see as I walked down the aisle… but I love the blusher and wouldn’t change that part of the bridal attire for nothing in the world. To me it’s not about “traditions” it’s about the effect of the veil, it gives the bride an ethereal effect, gives her mystique, don’t underestimate how much the blusher will soften and transform your appearance. This is the one item that will bring everyone to tears!

    If I would thought of this before I would of considered keeping it on for some part of the ceremony but not till the end especially being that during the full catholic ceremony, one will be taking the Body and Blood of Christ but this is after the vows, I would think/suggest that after the Liturgy of the Word and the homily but right before the Rite of Marriage begins the groom could then remove the blusher, this would be so romantic when he gets to see his bride face to face. This way, after the Rite of Marriage the Eucharistic Rite is next -your face is now exposed where you can take communion without having the veil in front of your face…

    Removing at the beginning and right before the wedding vows are two great options, but if I could go back I would keep it on for the first part of the ceremony then have my groom remove it before our vows. I like how the Jewish tradition does it at the beginning of the ceremony to make sure it’s the right girl/bride as per the biblical/Fist Temstiment story of Jacob who was tricked and married Leah, instead of Rachel but later he married Rachel Wink

    I’m wearing my blusher just as a little extra poof for my veil, but I’m not pulling it forward.  I like that it’s short and fluttery, but I want to be able to see my future husband when I’m walking down the aisle…not a blur.  🙂
