I’ve been trying on veils and am totally in love with a completely plain, non-beaded elbow length veil (with no beading on it at all). The ladies in the boutique are adamant that I must have some beading on it in order to weigh it down, considering the wedding is going to be held outdoors.
Just wondering if anyone else used a plain veil in their outdoor wedding? Can a few beads really make that much difference?
Any personal experiences that you can share would be gratefully received! 🙂

I’m not an expert but I think the pictures with the veil blowing look really cool! I’m also not really sure how a bit of beading will weigh down a veil. A lot of the beaded ones are really light too.

Yeah it adds a lot of movement to the photos. Plus it will only blow a lot if it’s really windy.

Some of my favourite photos are the ones where the veil is billowing dramatically. So much so I’m secretly hoping our wedding day will be a windy one!

I’m an outdoor bride with a plain veil and I’m not worried! They are probably just trying to sell you something more expensive, it is their job.

They make veil weights for this!!
some are kind of blingy or a pearl but I’m sure you could find some way to disguise them!

Wore a totally plain two-layer fingertip length veil on a somewhat windy day outdoors. No problems. Got some very pretty pics too. Might be different if you wore cathedral length somewhere extremely gusty, like on a beach, though.

Wow, okay I’ll be honest – I already planned my wedding and had no idea this was a thing! 🙂 The things you learn! Anyway, I say stick with the plain veil – the veil in the wind photos are pretty awesome anyway! 🙂

Thanks everyone for your votes of confidence in the plain veil! 🙂
@tcgstar – I totally agree – how would ?50 grams of beading make that much difference…?
Ok, I think I am going to just risk it with the plain one… We are getting married on top of a hill, but it’s in a rotunda so fingers crossed we get a little bit of protection from that.
Thanks everyone 🙂
