No veil for me, either. I’m making a fascinator with an antique brooch, probably something similar to this:

I’m in a similar situation to some posters… my family is pressuring me to wear a veil, my Fiance doesn’t want me to because he thinks it looks “cheesy,” and I’m only 2 weeks away from my wedding with no decision made!  Grrr…

No veil for this girl! We’re having a destination wedding and I can just imagine how I’d look on the beach with a bug net flapping in the breeze. I also only like a few kinds of veils and to me it’s just not worth the effort. I’m planning on going with a very strapless ballgown (one that’s not embellished and has no train) made of cotton eyelet. i honestly cannot imagine a veil that would match!

This is the hairstyle I’m planning on….it’s not super different than what I have in most days, just fancier. And I’m planning on having a big white peony (or plumerias) in there as well.

My sister was a no-veil bride and it was lovely. Much better than my other sister who had a gigantic ballgown with 50 layers of tule and beads and one of those giant, poofy veils. Yikes.

okay, for some reason I can’t upload the picture even though it’s small. I’ll try again later.

I am not wearing a veil either, but I am going to do either a flower or ribbon headband instead.  I just feel for me the veil is a waste because I don’t want it over my face so it would just hang there the whole time.

I’m not doing it either – too much stuff all over the place.

No veil for me either. I will be getting married on the beach, and doing my hair like this, with fucshia orchids and no babies breath:

I didn’t wear a veil.  It didn’t really work with the look I was trying to achieve and I dislike the sensation of fabric, netting or tulle on/around my face.

so happy to see there are so many anti-veil brides! i feel like everyone thinks i’m crazy.

@j.grossman13: i think it is somewhat culture-dependent. in a jewish wedding there’s a whole pre-ceremony ritual where the groom and his family inspect the bride (to make sure she is the right girl–stems from the biblical story of when jacob was tricked into marrying leah instead of her sister rebecca whom he loved) and then the groom lowers the veil over his bride’s face before they walk down the aisle. luckily Fiance isn’t jewish and thinks veils are weird too, but i think my parents are hoping i change my mind.

This is a friend of mine that got married earlier this summer.  She was beautiful with just three flowers in her hair.

Obviously, that’s how I’m planning to do my hair on the big day. Sans veil and with sparkly doodads instead!
