I was previously married and I didn’t want a veil. I wanted a crown of flowers and I got tons of compliments on it. I loved it!!

You’ll be just as married after veil-less vows.

 

But, full disclosure, I wore a huge honking veil, rose tiara, and a fairly simple dress. Because I wanted to. Because, yeah, how often can you rock a huge honking veil and rose tiara? Really?

I would feel silly in a giant veil, but figured this was a once-in-a-lifetime chance to wear something like this. In the end, I decided to wear a cute little birdcage veil; it’s a 1920s style veil that just comes partway down your face. You might want to check out birdcage veils as a good compromise. You are still wearing a veil, but don’t have a giant thing coming off your head.

I didn’t wear a veil and felt still felt very bridal. I have very light blonde hair, pale skin and ivory dress- I felt it was an overload of white.

The veils can be prepared for the photos. However, I would not let veil stay for one whole day. I plan a outdoor wedding. I think those simple elegant wedding dresses are all powerful to make bride perfect on their own. So, not so necessary. But a very great accessory to light the scene. It will be a treasure memory and light the picture. So, my solution is just to prepare one for photo.

I started to get caught up in the “have to wear a veil” ho haa but it’s just not me. I’m wearing a custom made Viktoria Novak crown . I think a headpiece of any kind is a nice way to complete the look

I went with a simple birdcage that i put together with some fabric flowers THE NIGHT BEFORE… wasn’t going to wear anything but honestly… It did complete the look! Go with whatever feels right to you!

I wore a veil, I thought it made Me a bride. I wore it for the whole reception as well. It was my one chance and I’m totally happy I made the most of it!

I did not want a veil either, but when I finally tried one on (not my choice) I actually enjoyed how it looked. Obviously, all veils are made different and I’m sure you could find one to suit you. I also wanted a crown with flowers, so now I’m torn between the two. I could always wear a veil and wear flowers in my hair, that’s always an option!

I’m in the gotta have a veil camp. It makes anything bridal. Or else to me its just a lady in a white dress. But you have to do what you want!

Nope no veil. I wore a pearl and rhinestone headpiece as well. And really, when would I get the chance to wear a headpiece again? In my mind it’s the same as a veil. I felt just as bridal as I would have with a veil.

No veil for me when I finally get married.
