    Nope.  It came off after the pictures were done.

    No, but I wore a chapel length veil.  I guess I would if I had selected a bird cage veil.

    No, but I actually switched to a birdcage veil for my reception (one that didn’t cover my face.. that would have driven me nuts!).  I feel like the long veils are a fire hazard if you have candles!

    I’m taking mine off after the first dance, father-daughter dance, etc. (or sooner if it starts to bug me!)

    Mine came off too. I did have a birdcage veil though.

    I meant to take mine off, but just plain forgot to do it while we were bustling my dress.  Then I didn’t want to take the time away from the reception to take it off and make sure my hair didn’t get messed up.  Smile  Mine was only down to my waist, and one layer, so not in the way at all.

    I took mine off as soon as the ceremony was over. I didn’t want my veil catching on things and getting in my way all night.

    I sure did! 

    It’s the only time in your life wearing a veil is acceptable!

    So, I wore a cathedral length and a blusher for the ceremoney. Then I took the cathedral length off and moved the blusher to the back of my head and wore it all night. So many people said that they loved that I wore my veil all night, since not a lot of people do anymore.

    I am actually only wearing my veil for the after-party.

    (it’s blue)

    My sister recommended taking it off. She wore hers, and she said it gave her a headache because every time somebody hugged her (which was often!), it got yanked and tugged at (accidentally, of course, but still …)

    It is going to get tugged on when people hug you :S

    @BrooklynWife:  Since you did it, can you please settle the record: does the blusher get caught on people when they hug you?

    As you know, I think you looked fantastic and I’m considering wearing just the blusher, too.
