I’m not wearing a veil at all.  I tried on a few but I just really wasn’t feeling it.  I’ve seen other brides not wear one as well – it’s certainly not a requirement, so if you don’t want to wear one, then don’t.

I didn’t wear a veil at all.  I just felt kind of strange in them and didn’t like the look with my dress.  Granted, we didn’t get married in a church, but no one really said anything to me about it.

If you don’t want to wear one, then don’t!  I would maybe have a fancy hair piece or something but you don’t even have to do that if you don’t want to.

I”m also not 100% sure if I”m wearing one. I bought one and I like it, but I don’t know if it feels like “me”. If I do wear it, I’m only wearing it for the ceremony and some pictures, and then taking it off for the reception. You can always see how you feel on the day of–seeing the whole package (dress, hair, makeup) might make you feel more strongly one way or the other.

I definitely do not think you need to wear a veil if you are not feeling it.  HOWEVER, if your dress is not super sleek, I do think you need something to balance out your head and a big dress.  Maybe a hairdo with some height, or a fascinator, or a beaded headpiece, or something… just my opinion, but it seems like brides who have a long, white/ivory dress and nothing much doing on their head can unintentionally create a weird optical illusion where their head looks really small…

Another option… wear your veil for (some of) your pictures and ditch it the rest of the night.
