    I never would have ever thought I’d be a veil gal but then I thought when would I ever to wear a veil again? When I show people my veils (I have 3 because I can’t decide which one I like best with the dress!!!) they all looked shocked that I would even consider a veil.

    Which ever one I do decide to wear will wear only for the ceremony and then a few pictures after. Taking it off for the first dance and wearing either a flower or a headband.

    Totally agree with the budget blower.  I didn’t one want either, until I tried it on with the dress.  It really is the one and only time in your life that you’ll get to wear something so beautiful like that and I think it really “makes” the bridal outfit.  However, I want to be uninhibited at the reception 🙂 so I’m going to take off the veil after the ceremony.  I figure that way, I’ll have a different “look” for the reception AND in the end, the pictures will be more interesting to have half with veil and half without.  I would encourage you to get a veil, if just for the ceremony.  You don’t want to look back later and say, “I wish I had”….

    I made a French net birdcage and a tulle veil, but ended up wearing neither because I felt too claustrophobic in them!  I was a little panicky on the wedding day, so less was more for me.  We left it at the hair flower 🙂

    I went with the full veil for the ceremony and then switched to a birdcage for the reception.  It does make for some great photos but I couldn’t have imagined keeping the full one on for dancing at the reception and mine was a little shorter than chapel length.

    I’m going with a non-traditional birdcage veil for the ceremony only.  The feather part is detachable so I’ll wear that for the reception.  I just received it the other day and I absolutely love it!  🙂

    Veil for the ceremony, without for the party.

    Even if its a short veil, there’s a good chance that it may get damaged or fly off if you will dance. If it gets tugged off your hairdo could come apart with it too.

    I’m not wearing a veil at all.  I will probably wear a flower fascinator, but I’m still looking for the right one.

    I am in love with my fingertip length veil, but it was custom made by my Future Sister-In-Law. I may have to rock it at both the ceremony AND reception. :o)

    I think the veil makes me feel more “bridey.” It’s a must for me!!  Plus I love the way a veil softens the look of a bride, if that makes sense!
