I’m not wearing a veil because I think I would look foolish.  I’m wearing a ribbon as a headband tied at the nape of my neck with a flower attached.

You don’t have to wear a veil. I wasn’t going to originally but then I thought when else would I be wearing a veil? But if you don’t want to then I would say don’t do it. I’m sure you’ll look gorgeous whatever you choose.

I didn’t wear a veil because quite frankly, every style looked terrible on me. I have semi-big hair and I already had a huge fascinator and the veil just seemed too much. I had my bouts of regrets/doubt (especially since people were like “When else can you wear one?”) but generally speaking, I think the bouquet and the poofy white dress are enough to scream “I’m a bride!”

No way, you don’t have to wear one at all!  I think veils are more for just “completing the look” of the dress and if it goes with the overall feel of the wedding, and even then, I really don’t think it matters. Anything goes. 

My sister had a beach wedding, but wore a veil, tiara, swarovski jewelry and lace dress.  I’m having a garden/seaside ceremony reception, no veil.  My dress is pretty busy enough and I feel wierd in a veil. 

 

Maybe as other bees suggest, use a fascinator, fresh flowers, pins, jeweled clips, etc.  Good luck!!!  Use what makes you shine!

Not planning on wearing one, either!  I think it’s an unnecessary expense!

I think that if you don’t want a veil, dont! You’re the bride and you should not need to feel to wear a veil if you don’t want to. 🙂 I do not think its the standard for today (to the rest of the world), but I know many brides still wears them, for me, I am still not sure if I will wear any veil of some sorts. Where I am from, it’s not that very common, at least not amongst my friends.

I did not wear a veil and not one person had a problem with it. 🙂

Do what you want. My Fiance doesn’t like veils, but I do so i plan on wearing a cathedral length one.

I posted about this same issue a little while ago. I don’t want to wear one but my parents want me to and are really upset and confused why I won’t. Mostly I don’t want to because I also don’t like what they were originally for, but my parents just see it as what you wear when you get married and always imagined me in one. Silly really,

I didn’t wear one and never missed it and neither did anyone else. I felt too claustrophobic with it on
