I was all for skipping the veil altogether…until I tried one on to humor the consultant and my mom got The Look. You know, the “OMG MY BABY’S GETTING MARRIED” look. So I caved and wore one for photos and the ceremony. It was annoying as hell, but fun to take pictures in. If I had to do it over, I’d still wear the veil.

@linguo42: FWIW, facinators are cool, but most women only get one chance to wear a veil.  Finding the dress didn’t give me that that “OMG, I’m a bride” feeling – the veil is what did it.  I did take mine off after pictures though, and went with a simple flower in my hair for the reception.  If it’s in your budget, perhaps that’s a compromise?

In the end, do what feels right to you – it’s your wedding. 🙂
