I’m thinking of wearing a high bun for the ceremony (I’d take it down for the reception). I’ve gotten some serious compliments when I’ve worn my hair this way over the past year. I’m not sure if I’d have it sleek, messy, with lots of volume/glamour or what. I also really want to wear a simple one-layer only tulle cathedral veil, but I’ve been torn when I see the options for how you can wear a veil with a high bun. What do you think? Do you have other pics showing what you like or don’t like about high bun or high bun w/veil?

Just look up at the top left of the screen to get inspiration from the WeddingBee girl haha! I love the high bun, it’s super elegant. I’d do a sleek and big one with the veil underneath.

i love a good high, messy bun like Hilary with the veil underneath!

wifegoodman wore a high bun and it went perfectly with her overall look. Love it!

I personally prefer the look of the veil coming from the bottom of the do- not only does it let your hairstyle shine, but the top looks a little… 80’s big in my eyes.
Hilary’s was the first time I ever saw a bride like that, and I didn’t like it at first, but I really do think it’s a fun take on the classical bun, with the high, wide, structure.

thanks for all the feedback. I’m guessing my hesitation to do the veil w/the bun might be more that I’m just confused about this new idea of doing a veil & never thought about it until recently or how it’d work/look.
@AllieBee12: too true. My hair is reddish (have been dying it that color for a while). so when I told one of my gfs who’s seen the bee that I was considering a high bun for the ceremony, she teased me, saying – oh great, you’ll look just like her (pointing to the weddingbee girl).
hmm now I’m off to look for pictures of curly hair in high buns b/c it’d be great if my hair could have my natural curl, be put up in a high bun for ceremony & some pics, & then easily down & curly for the reception.

I really like this look. I prefer it when the veil is a one tier as opposed to the multi tier ones pictured before Hilary’s. I do have a friend on facebook who wore her hair this way for her wedding. She had a high bun, with a single tier cathedral veil falling just over the bun. The veil was super sheer and of high quality and fell perfectly. I can’t post pictures of her since I don’t have permission, but her bun was very sleek. She had a bling cuff around the base of her veil, and she took her veil off after the ceremony and just wore the blingy bun.

I plan to have a high bun/updo curly style like this with a veil on top (= I feel like such a bride <3
So yes, I say on top (=

I prefer the look of the high bun with the veil underneath, it’s so pretty and a bit more flirtatious that way. The veil on top of the high bun…it’s a bit much I think.

The other question is: do you plan on having the veil cover your face at any point in time or leave it back?
I am not a fan of the high messy bun, but a sophisticated sleek one or the curly one that a pp showed 🙂

I say go for it. I am doing the same thing with a 1 tier cathedral veil underneath, here is my inspiration. Audrey hepburn inspired chignon.

lol you have way too many options for the same things, essentially.
I’d say – if you look good in a high bun and you’re going to take it down for the reception anyway, wear it for the ceremony. So, yes to the high bun.
I also say – definitely wear it under the bun. What’s the point of the high bun if your veil is going to cover it? Then it just looks like your veil is all poofy up top, it looks funny. I love the way Hilary Duff did it. Gorgeous. She’s stunning *sigh* lol Anyway – under the bun is classy, not weird at all. So, yes to the veil under the bun.

I love the look of a sleek, simple high bun. Probably because I was a dancer for so many years! I echo the idea of placing the veil under the bun. That would look great!
