    I have the same exact thoughts on veils as you do. (Except there is something creepy about them to me! lol) Don’t wear it. It doesn’t seem like something you want and like you said, this is the only thing that you aren’t 100% on. I am sure your mom will understand. It isn’t your MOH’s wedding. She can wear a veil on her wedding. This is YOUR day. Wear what you will the most beautiful in. Let your mom know how you feel. You can offer to try and sell the veil online to recoup some of the money.

    Do what you want. If you don’t want to wear a veil then don’t! I think your updo with a flower sounds awesome!

    I think if you don’t want a veil then don’t have one. It is YOUR wedding day, no one elses! I didn’t want a veil at first either buit when I started trying them on with my dress I felt different and I realised I had to have one. So if you’re still feeling that you don’t like them, go without it. Theres loads of alternatives now anyway…

    Just another thought – to make yourself feel better, why not inquire about returning the veil, even for store credit?

    Definietly try to exchange it for a hair accessory! There are some cute Vera White headbands too.  And if you can’t exchange ask to speak to a manager. If that still doesn’t work you could always try to sell it. Go for the look you want! I’m not sure if I want a veil or not, but I think Veils can sometimes hide your hairdo that you spend tons on money on.

    My Maid/Matron of Honor put the veil in the bottom of her updo for her ceremony and it looked really pretty.  Could you do that with yours just for the ceremony, then take it out and put the flower in for the reception?  That way you won’t feel guilty for wasting your mom’s $, but most of the reception pictures can be of you with your hair how you want it.
