I think it’s fine to wear a veil with short hair. Think of it this way: it is literally the only time you can wear a veil in your life (other than Halloween, I guess!)

If you want to wear a veil, you should go for it! I would probably try on some different styles at a wedding dress store first (preferably with your gown so you can see how it goes together) and just see what suits and what looks best!

I agree with others that you should wear one if you want it! I have short hair and am going with a mini tulle veil. 

Try some on with your dress. See what you prefer. 

Here’s a pic of me while I was making my veil sparkle. (bought the plain veil and added swarovski rhinestones to it)

@sammyjo2012011:  Yes wear  a veil. as a PP mentioned, how often in your life can you actually wear one?

Definately go with a veil if it’s what you always wanted. I’d decided I didn’t want a veil until I tried one on with my dress, and have ended up with one! I wouldn’t worry about the length of your hair, mine’s shoulder length but will all be pinned up so under a veil it will look short anyway!

I say wear one! Once in a lifetime opportunity (hopefully). I’m sure you can find one that suits short hair, you should try some on. Also, work with your hairdresser to come up with a hairstyle that suits the veil.

Wear one! I love the idea of a blusher veil with short hair, it seems to work really well.

I think birdcages look super cute with short hair but really you can wear any veil!!

@sammyjo2012011:  Will your hair be longer when you get married? I noticed your date said 2014. I think short hair looks great with birdcage veils too but I think you should wear any veil you want and looks best with your dress! 🙂

I think your hair would look GORGEOUS contrasted with a super long, flowy veil!

My cousin had a very similar hairstyle to yours and she wore a long veil for her reception. It looked gorgeous with her hair! 

You can always try it on at any bridal salon to see if you like it!
