I have zero interest in a veil. They put one on me while I was trying on dresses at David’s and I immediately took it out. So obviously I think its fine to not wear one

My dress is also tea length and I’m not wearing a veil either! I’m going the hair flower route. It won’t look strange at all! 🙂

I am curious what others will respond. Unfortunately I can’t be much help because I too am debating on wearing a veil. I am planning like you to wear my hair half-up/half-down and I just think that veils are too "in the face". I am partial to just wearing a beaded or jeweled headpiece.

I am planning on not wearing a veil too!  I wanted our wedding to have a casual-ish feel and my dress is already a little fancier than I had originally imagined so I’m forgoing the veil to balance it out!  I’m planning on wearing my hair half up/down also!

As a veil wearer and someone who answered your other post, I say skip the veil if you’re not feeling it.  Veils are absolutely not required.

I am wearing a tea length dress as well. I’m not much of a veil girl, but I am wearing a flower in my hair!

Maybe just wear a pretty Fascinator. There’s some awesome ones on Etsy.

I wanted to forgo the veil but my mom said it’s her only request.

If you really don’t want a veil, don’t wear one!

Have you tried something more understated, like a birdcage/fascinator/shoulder-length veil, though?

I’m planning on wearing my hair either all down, or half up.  I’m for sure not wearing a veil.  It’s just not me. I may wear a fascinator though.

I love the flower in the hair idea. Its your day, if you don’t want one ditch it!


My mother is insisting on a cathedral length veil, every married woman (who has stayed married oddly enough) has worn one in our family. Its one of her weird quirks but I don’t mind making her happy.

I didn’t wear a veil and I didn’t regret it.  I just felt like I didn’t find one that I liked with my dress.  Don’t feel bad if you don’t wear one–it doesn’t make you any les of a bride!  Although, with a tea length dress, a facinator might be kind of cute.

I’m with Miss Star, what about a fascinator or a birdcage veil?  Both of those would look lovely with your hair half up/half down.
