I have never dreamed of wearing a veil. They don’t excite me. All along, my plan has been to wear my hair down with maybe a flower tucked in. My mom has mentioned a few times that she’d like me to wear a veil, since ït’s the only time in a girls life you get to wear one, you know.”
I thought that this was a debatable point until we went dress shopping last night. We tried on veils. Mom loved them – I hated them. She s paying, and it means so much to her that I’m tempted to give in. But it still remains… I don’t want one!

How about a compromise? Wear a veil for the ceremony and a few of the formal pictures and switch it out for a hair flower for the ceremony and the rest of the pictures.

I was very anti-veil too. Same situation. My mom really wanted it, and I felt like it just wasn’t the look I was going for. I thought they were too poofy, and felt kind of silly. I ended up finding one could be ok with, and actually in pictures of the day I actually feel like it was the right choice.

Oh I could not wait to wear a veil I wore two, lol! But if you’re not into them, I understand…. maybe just wear one for the ceremony?

I wasn’t into it either and my mom was. I ended up with a simple chapel length that I will take off after the ceremony (it was $69 at David’s Bridal) so I don’t feel too bad about it. Having said that, I love bubble veils and am considering a short one for the reception. Don’t ask me why since I didn’t originally like the puffiness factor!
If you really don’t want one, just say no. If you found the right hair/head accessory, she might feel different about it. Maybe a flower with a little tulle?

So I suppose it all boils down to finding the right veil? And being able to take it off after the pictures? (Mom did suggest this.)
Anyone wear their veil with hair down? Pics, please!

I would let her have her moment and then take it off. It’s so important to do things sometimes for family even though you don’t want to. I really didn’t want to wear a blusher but my Dad really wanted it. He’s paying for the wedding and I think he deserves this 🙂

Lots of people wear veils with hair down. I think they look really nice. I think it’s nice that you’re taking your moms opinion into consideration. I think you should wear one for the ceremony, and then take it off for the reception, that would be fair, and make your mom happy.
