I was debating it for awhile but then eventually decided that it is the only time I get to wear one, so might as well. I’ll wear it for photos/ceremony but probably take it off for the reception. I’m making my own from $3 worth of supplies (tulle & hair comb). It’s going to be as basic as a veil can be. Just a elbow length piece of tulle sewed to a hair comb and stuck in my hair.

ChicagoBride15:  I hadn’t planned on wearing a veil but then they put it on me at the store and I immediately felt like ‘I’m the Bride’.  I refused to pay bridal store prices, esp seeing as I wanted something super plain, so I made it.  Cost me $10 and took about an hour.  I wore it for the ceremony and about half the pictures and then I took it off.

i dont feel strongly about it one way or another. i have just as many reasons not to wear one as i have to wear one so i’ll maybe make the decision after my dress comes in and i decide on hair and make up

I always wanted a veil……… And I had the most amazing cathedral length custom made veil ever. 

But I was only able to wear it for the church and the pictures, I took that sucker off as soon as we were back in the limo on our way to the reception. I had 2 big beautiful ivory roses with a blingy hairpiece next to them, I really wanted to show that off too!!!!

After seeing how expensive they were, I was opting not to wear one but have since decided to make my own. It took a while to complete but I’m happy I did. I saved hundreds of dollars and created the beaded veil that I wanted.

ChicagoBride15:  I didn’t wear a veil… we had a fun semicasual outdoor wedding and it just seemed too fussy.  I wore a floral crown and loooooved it!  You’re the bride no matter what you’re wearing.

To each their own.

I was staunchy anti-veil until my mom insisted I at least try one with my dress, she cried.. It made me happy to see her so happy.

Needless to say, I wore a veil and am happy I did so.

I didn’t want to wear a veil until I tried one on–it was exactly what I was missing. Do what makes you happy. I would at least try one on and then make your decision.

ChicagoBride15:  try some on… if your still not feeling the veil, don’t wear one. Your the Bride with or without a veil.

I thought I would never want a veil. At all. 

When it came to it, I ended up getting a cathedral length veil to go over my floaty wedding dress. I love it. I’m having a semi-messy up-do with a beaded headband. try it. You might be surprised.

I didn’t wear one and have no regrets! I don’t, personally, like the way most of them look and I got married outside, so I didn’t want it blowing around and getting snagged on things. And, trust me, I felt plenty bridal! I think being the woman getting married makes you the bride, not any accessory!

I didn’t think I wanted or needed a veil but my mom and Future Sister-In-Law (bro just got engaged!) sewed and hand beaded one for me and I’m so in love with it! i guess you don’t need a veil until you see “the one” (veil) and then it’s all over 🙂

Not wearing a veil just a few head pieces. Those things are way too expensvie for a piece of tool. If they were more reasonable price I might have consider wearing one.
