i’m wearing a veil mainly because my dress is short and not a wedding dress, so i feel like i need something to make me feel bridey. however in all reality getting married is the real part of being a bride so if you don’t want to wear it, than don’t!

I’m not wearing a veil. I’m getting married on the beach and just think it would be more of a hassle than needed. I don’t really see the point of it anymore, I guess. It’s a tradional thing that had meaning but it has kind of lost with the change of our society.

I am wearing a tiara! I’m gonna be a princess and it’s going to be made out of seashells :D.

I had initially decided not to wear a veil because it seemed too traditional to me and then… I figured out that I absolutely love wearing things on my head, especially veils. I wish I could wear one all the time. I don’t think there’s anything wrong or right about wearing a veil; it’s all personal preference!

Well I personal convinced my Boyfriend or Best Friend to wear a veil for her wedding because it made her look like a bride but if you really don’t want to wear one – DON’T!!!!

The thing is at your wedding you are the ONLY bride and the ONLY one in the long white dress no one will mistaken you as a guest!

I mean, sure, you may not have another chance to wear one, but if you didn’t really wanna wear one in the first place, that shouldn’t be a problem, right?

Have you tried one on? If you try one on and like it then certainly consider it. You can probably incorporate it w/your headband. Otherwise, don’t second guess yourself! Bridal headbands are really pretty and you’ll feel more like yourself if you don’t force yourself to wear a veil.

I’m not wearing a veil simply because I don’t like the history & symbolism of veils (shielding a groom from seeing his potentially ugly bride, showing a bride’s submission to her husband, etc), but also because I love my red hair and I love my dress, and I just don’t like the look of veils!

I think you should go try a few on with your dress, and if you’re not sure, buy an inexpensive one in case you want it, or consider it for a while before you make a purchase.

I didn’t wear a veil, and I had never planned on it until I started planning the wedding.  Then I saw all sorts of gorgeous veils in ads and wedding photos.  I almost waffled, but decided that it was too expensive (I would have made my own, but I liked a more-expensive fabric) to be unsure.  In any event, I went to a wedding where I thought the bride looked beautiful but made me certain that veils looked silly to me. I am so glad I didn’t go for a veil!

I was a two veil bride.  I made a tulle veil and then a birdcage.  I was fine with them until the day of the wedding…

And then… I. Completely. Freaked.  I felt claustrophobic in them and could not tolerate them.  I abandoned them both and just proudly wore my homemade hair flower.

Honestly, I’m glad I went veil free, but do have twinges of regret that I couldn’t even tolerate them for a couple of pictures!

At first I wasnt going to do a veil just a flower in my hair.  When I went dress shopping, the sales lady knew this, but told me to just try it on…and I feel in love with it!  It was a mantilla veil that was way overpriced so I searched online for a cheaper one.  I actually purchased it from a Wedding Bee member!

I’m only planning to wear it for the ceremony and then switching to the flower.  I thought it would be pretty for pictures too…you know, veil over the Fi and me, veil blowing in the wind, veil wrapped around me, you get the picture!

I say just try it on with your dress and from there decide if you like it or not.  Cause you’ll never know until you try, that way you don’t have to second guess yourself anymore.  You either like it or you don’t!

I wasn’t going to wear a veil at all, but then when trying on dresses they get you into one to see what it looks like…and I was hooked.  But I’m only wearing it for the ceremony and then ditching it for the reception.

I am having the same debate. I don’t feel strongly either way. I kind of like the birdcage idea better and may go that route. We’ll see. My Fiance has actually said he prfer no veil. I dunno why? In the end I’ll do what looks and feels best.
