My awesome Fiance only had one request when we started wedding planning; that I wear a veil that covered my face so that he could do the whole lifting the veil reveal thing. Being that he’s so awesome, I have to wear one. But Bees,I’m not gonna lie, I’m a bit worried. Soothe my fears, show me how amazing my fellow bees look with a veil that covers their face. Also, what are those things called? I think it’s two tiered veils but I’m not 100… Thanks ya’ll!

@Jennyemm: Yes they’re called two tiered. But… I didn’t realise until our rehearsal at the church the night before that it’s your Maid/Matron of Honor or Bridesmaid or Best Man who lifts the veil when you reach your Fiance at the aisle.

@CatyLady: Aww you look so pretty : ) The veil and the dress and the bouquet just all look amazing together. Well I guess I’m breaking tradition then haha he’s dead set on lifting the veil himself.

@Jennyemm: Thank you, that’s so nice to hear even though it was two years ago, reassurance is still nice. It is nice if your Fiance does it, more romantic.

my Fiance also wants to lift my veil. He told me it’s something he’s thought about for a long time, and I guess it’s important to him, so I’ll be doing it. However, my compromise was that I don’t want the veil over my face the entire ceremony, so I’ll be wearing it down for the walk, get to the front, my Fiance will meet us, share plesantries with my parents (shake hands, kiss cheek, whatever), then lift my veil, and I will say good bye to my parents before we walk together to the minister.
Anywhozzles, here’s some photos =)
I adored Kate’s drop veil.
Or Grace Kelly’s beautiful lace veil

Ha Ha. My fiance’s only request was for me to wear a veil over my face as well so that he could lift it. I’m guessing in the US it is more custom for the groom or father to lift the vrides veil, not the Maid/Matron of Honor. You can either get a two-tier veil (the top tier is what you use to cover your face). Or you can buy two seperate veils- I brought a cathedral veil (on sale for $40) and had to get a blusher veil (shorter veil but only $20) to cover my face. In addition, the blusher can be worn afterwards for the reception if I desire, it’ll just attach to back of head instead of the top. Although I have two different veils, they look great together and it looks like they were made together. A lot of brides go this route according to the bridal salon. I don’t have any pitcures but I think the last picture above posted by cirk seems like she has a separate blusher in front of her face (if you look really hard you can see that one veil has a ivory colored satin edge).

@Cummins59: you both look fantastic!
@cirk: Thank you so much for those inspo pics!
@slc201329: this is an amazing idea that has never ever occurred to me lol two separate veils are definitely a route that peaks my interest.
