That is the question! Hey ladies, I’m all for tradition, but is it just me, or does the veil seem like it’s on its way out? I’m not one for following trends, but I just LOVE the idea of a great wedding fascinator in lieu of a veil. My dress is pretty traditional, nothing too unique, but I’m divided on my headwear. How do you all feel about veils? Are you wearing one or following the upcoming trend?

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. 🙂
