I am a “No-veil” bride as well!!  I never liked the idea of having one and after finding my dress it confirmed that no veil would do the dress justice.  I want to do my hair half up with some sort of flower type pin. 

Here is my inspiration pic for my hair (without the veil of course Wink):

I was so set on not having a veil because to me they make me feel like i’m wearing a glorified bug net. I love the look of them on tons of other brides but on me that’s just how I feel! But when we went dress shopping my mom and my uncle both ganged up on me and wouldn’t leave the store without a veil! So can I please say how jealous I am that you ladies aren’t wearing a veil!

@coffeekitty:I wish I could have put my foot but my uncle was the one who bought me the dress, so bascially he told me no veil = no dress! Oh well my ceremony is only 15 minutes and then that sucker is coming off!

as of right now i’m not planning on wearing a veil. i like them on other girls but have never felt like it was something i wanted to wear. hopefully i won’t cave to pressure in the coming months. my plan is to wear my hair pulled back at the nape of my neck (or maybe a little off to the side) and wear a flower pinned into my bun.

I will be a no veil bride, my sister (first pic) was a no veil bride, and my step sister (second pic) was a no veil bride.

I have personally never gotten into the veil thing. There are actually a LOT of wedding traditions that I don’t get into: I don’t like veils, I don’t like stark white dresses (they look awful on me), I don’t like unity candles, as well as a long list of kitchy tradtions that just never impressed me.

I am not sure how i will be wearing my hair just yet (I have forever) but I will likely wear it up or half up. I love my hair when it’s down, but with an outdoor ceremony I don’t want to risk crazy hair in the face if it gets windy!

I plan to just wear a decorative flower in my hair. I think it says “Bride” just as much as a veil, and it is much more fitting with my taste.

I am a no vail bride.  I thought about doing a birdcage vail but in the end they alway seem so ackward on.  Here is a picture of my hair/makeup trail with my headband

No veil for me – even though my mom’s veil was the only bit of her wedding attire I touched.  Just something more to worry about, and the symbolism doesn’t apply.

you are not alone!  i didn’t wear one either, my dress had a lot going on up top, so i thought it would be too much.  sorry to hear that others brides actually got crap for not wanting one.  i guess in some cultures it’s that important??  stay strong! [attachment=1241163,157863]

I plan to be a no-veil bride as well, but that’s as far as I’ve gotten.  Don’t know how to do my hair or anything yet!

I’m a no veil bride too!  Just a simple updo with a pretty flower for me!
