 I actually don’t have an answer to your question.  But I had a cathedral length veil, with a blusher.  At the reception, I just kept the blusher on.  It looked nice and wasn’t a bother.

I’ve never heard of bustling a veil, but I’ve thought of doing either what Tanya suggested with having two veil lengths, or switching from my Cathedral length veil at the ceremony to a cool headpiece (like a headband or hair flower/feather) for the reception. Then, you could always have your veil preserved in some way. I plan on having mine made into SOMETHING after the wedding. Just not sure what that will be yet!

I have heard of bustling a veil but have never seen it done.  I would call the bridal shop where you bought your dress and ask about it.

I haven’t heard of bustling a veil or seen a picture of it.  I would think it might get a little weighty and bulky hanging from your head all night.  Also- to put the ribbons or eye hooks on the veil to bustle it might be visible on your veil when it is down.

I like the blusher idea.

You could always hook it over your arm during your first dance so it owulkd at least be in some of the photos and then take it off for the rest of the reception so it doesn’t slow you down.

Here’s a picture:
