    I don’t think being gay should affect whether or not you can wear a veil! I will probably be wearing a small birdcage veil, but I may skip it and go with a pretty headband or flower instead. I’m waiting to decide until my dress is done and I can see my whole ‘look’ together. However, it’s strictly about aesthetics and personal preference for me – being gay doesn’t really come into it.

    I did not wear a veil because our wedding was casual. For our vow renewal I probably won’t wear one, mostly because it’s just not my style. I think it’s totally appropriate to wear a veil if you want to.

    I’m not LGBTQ but I think you can and should wear a veil if you want to!

    Yep, I agree with Moonadea that being gay shouldn’t influence your choice to wear a veil or not.  I’m definitely not doing a blusher, but I may wear a fingertip veil.  I am not totally decided yet as I am still waiting for my dress, too.  But, you should do whatever you like.  Don’t let the internal resistance get to you!!  Smile

    An ally here, but I also say that if you want a veil, wear a veil!!! If you want to go all out and wear a blusher, wear a blusher!!!  For some people, putting on the veil just completes this magical, romantic look that they love–if it does that for you, why in the world would you talk yourself out of it?  Your guests won’t think anything of it–you are a bride after all!

    Gay or straight, you’re still a bride! If the veil makes you feel bridal and special, 100% go for it. I have no earthly idea why your guests would think anything other than how beautiful you look.

    I am not wearing a veil because it just isn’t me… if a veil feels right to you then wear it, no one will say anything about why would you dare to wear a veil, they will say “you are gorgeous”

    I was about to ask the same.

    WHY can’t someone who is a LGBTQ bride wear a veil?!?!

    I don’t think it’s anybody’s business (other than you and your FI) what you wear.

    That being said, I stopped myself from getting a ballgown wedding dress partially because I knew I would be too worried about what my guests would think. I know I shouldn’t care, but it’s not that easy.

    So I guess what I’m saying is that I think you would look awesome in a veil, and it’s totally appropriate (LGBTQ shouldn’t enter into it at all), BUT if you’re going to be feeling self conscious, then it would be understandable if you decided not to wear it.

    My Fiance is wearing a veil with tiara–I’m wearing a vintage hat (a’la weddings of the 1970’s). It’s really up to you and your sweetie which way you want to go and it’s not really anyone’s business.

    Absolutely, you want to feel radiant and beautiful.

    But no one is stepping forward with a suggestion as to why LGBTQ brides shouldn’t wear veils…
