    I like it. I am going to have a blusher too. I think it is classy. My Fiance said that he wants me to have one to make the wedding ceremony more complete!

    My Fiance has had few comments regarding my wedding attire, but really insisted that I wear a blusher. He’s usually so modern so it was actually quite endearing to hear this traditional request from him. My veil will be custom length (between shoulder and finger tip) with a blusher. I’ll be taking the veil off for the reception.

    I found this super awesome veil picture, hope you dont mind me sharing it with you Bees! I have always found it helpful!

    My Fiance HATES veils…but I really love them and really think that brings it ALL together! Besides your wearing a WHITE/IVORY dress! =)

    Best of Luck Bees!

    Neither my fiance or I really care.  I was given one, though, at my job about… six years ago (elbow length flyaway).  If it looks right without, I’ll go without.  If the veil completes it, I’ll wear a veil.  It’s neither outdated nor necessary.

    I love veils and wouldn’t have felt complete in my wedding attire without one but I personally don’t care for blushers.  I find them old-fashioned but that’s just my opinion.

    Some people can pull blushers off.  I am not one of them.  I would constantly be putting my hand up to my face, pulling the fabric away 🙂

    I am anti blusher for myself.  I plan on wearing a cathedral length veil for the ceremony and some pictures but otherwise, it’s coming off for the reception!

    I don’t really care for blushers either. I think they can look good depending on the gown and wedding style they are paired with, but it’s not for me.

    I’m going to have my hair pinned and braided up. Here’s my inspiration pic:

    So I’m not really sure how I’m going to work a veil in. I still need to talk to my hair stylist. Just tucking it in under the main part of the bun I guess.

    edit: sorry, it won’t let me resize the picture

    My opinion on blushers:  What’s the point of getting your makeup done if you’re just going to cover up your face?  Lol.

    Oh, and also… women traditionally wore veils over their faces because they were the subject of a business transaction between their father and their future husband.  If the husband saw the face of his new product before signing the contract and didn’t like it as much as he’d thought, he might back out of the agreement.  So the woman’s face is covered.  

    While today blushers can be seen as accessories that have been modernized, I personally don’t want my wedding to contain any remnants of the times when weddings were business transactions.  So no blusher for me.

    I wore a simple one-tiered fingertip length veil with no blusher… I didn’t want to cover up my face after paying an arm and leg for makeup!  Tongue out

    I’m not a huge fan of blushers.  I think they look nice however I don’t want to wear one.  If you are going for a super traditional wedding and you want a blusher I say go for it.  For myself, I am pretty sure I won’t be wearing one.  I don’t like the idea of something being on my face.

    Both my mom AND Fiance insist I wear a blusher – but I’m not crazy about them. I’ll likely just make my parade down the aisle with it and then have it back once I reach the officiant.

    ETA: I actually like the way they look on other people, but when I tried them on myself, I felt like a bee-keeper. Not sure how to rectify that before the time comes.
