No! You’re the bride! Don’t wear a veil if you don’t want to! πŸ˜€

No, it’s not a must do.  I don’t plan on wearing one either.  =)  I do think they’re really pretty though!

It’s not a must-do, and if you don’t want to wear a veil, then don’t wear one.

As for the tradition, it’s rooted in the days of arranged marriage where the bride’s family wanted to hide the bride’s appearance from the groom so if he got stuck marrying the ugly sister, he’d not know about it till it was too late.  So I’m not convinced that is a tradition that you really need to cling to!

Wear or don’t wear whatever you want!! I’m wearing a small birdcage with a crystal hair comb only because with my dress I needed the extra something to make it all work, otherwise, I wouldn’t be wearing one either!

I really don’t want to wear one either! Honestly, I think it would kind of get in the way and it’s one more thing to buy. I’d rather show off my beautiful updo and add in a bridal headband, flower or hair clips than have a veil. If you don’t want a veil, I don’t think you have to!

If you don’t want to wear a veil, don’t wear one! It is kind of goofy in a way. If you’re still unsure, I’d highly suggest trying one on and seeing how you feel in it. I actually thought I wanted a veil with a blusher, but when I tried one on in the store I instantly hated it. As in, had a visceral reaction to it and immediately took it off. I guess seeing myself covered like that was too much for my inner feminist or something. And yet I love pictures of others wearing them… point being, do what makes you happy, but don’t be surprised if it’s not what you thought you wanted.

I didn’t wear one. I hated the idea of it because of the traditional meaning of a veil.

I wore one but if you don’t want to then go for it! Brides can looks just as bridal-y without the veil.

I’m not! I looked ridiculous in a veil.

 

Instead I am just going to wear a kickass fascinator.

 

I am pretty sure no one is going to not realize you’re the bride without a veil..you’re still wearing a gigantic white dress πŸ™‚

I never thought I’d wear one, but am glad I tried one on, I feel it completes my look.  But by all means, you don’t have to wear one at all!  I’m only wearing mine for the ceremony and first dances and then I have a blingy hair comb I’m going to put in. πŸ˜‰
