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?

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.
