    I’m not sure yet if I will wear my veil over my face, but if I do (which I am leaning towards) I think I will have my father lift it when he gives me away. I don’t think I would want to wait until the end of the ceremony to lift it, mainly because I want us to be able to see each others’ faces clearly when we give our vows.  The choice is up to you and what you’re comfortable with.  It would be nice to have a veil cover my face if I cry during my vows though, lol.

    On a side note: I’ve never been to a wedding where the bride has worn her veil over her face at all — and I’ve been to many!  I guess it’s not considered modern since veils were supposed to symbolize purity/modesty. Personally, I love how the veil would hide my face, adding a little mystery until I finally reach my love at the end of the aisle 🙂

    It’s totally up to you which scenario you prefer, but I’m planning on wearing my veil down the aisle and having my dad lift it when he gives me away.

    I`m probably having my dad lift it, but I do like the mystery of wearing it for the ceremony. But to be fair – if I spend money to have my make up done, i want it seen!

    i read on somewhere how it kinda takes away from the moment or intimacy if you have a veil over your face while saying the vows… this is not my original opinion, i read this somewhere, and I kinda agree with it, i don’t want a veil in between my FH and I while we say our vows to each other

    I’m having my Fiance lift it for sure, I’m just not exactly sold on when. I’ve heard so many stories on what the veil symbolizes that I just don’t think there is consensus on it, so I’m not too worried about anything like that. Try picturing it in your head a few times each way and just go with your gut!

    I don’t want to wear a veil over my face at all.  First of all, I want to be able to see FI’s face clearly as I’m walking; secondly, it’s just too old-fashioned for me, and I think it looks weird.  Just my own preference.

    veils have nothing to do with purity or modesty.  that’s a load of crap right up there with wearing white on your wedding day.  there are a million different roots for the wearing of veils depending on which culture you look at.

    i’m not sure what exactly i’m going to be wearing for a veil (tulle or french net, classic birdcage or bandeau), but i do know that it won’t come down lower than the end of my nose.  i’m also not being given away.  so i’m pretty sure i’m just going to be wearing it, period.

    @cardus: that was just one outlook on it that I’ve heard, I didn’t say anyone had to believe it (as I don’t).  I think a lot of women don’t wear a veil over their face because they don’t want their face (and makeup) to be hidden. As you said, there are millions of viewpoints as to why veils are even worn by a bride on her wedding day.  No need for profanity.

    I’m wearing a blusher– the plan is for my partner to lift it at the end of the aisle, after my dad has ‘dropped me off!’

    I did both.  My dad lifted the blusher to give me a hug and a kiss and then put it back down.  Then my hubs lifted it for the kiss.  It was the best way to compromise in my situation.

    I did both.  My dad lifted it to hug and kiss me and then put it back down.  And then my hubs lifted it.  It made for some cute pics/video for my dad to attempt to fix it when he pulled it down.

    I’m going back and forth on this — but right now i’m wearing a fingertip length veil that will be over my face for the walk down the aisle and then dad will left it before he sits down. He’s not “giving me away.” I just like some traditional things with weddings — and this is one of them. I mean the whole “walking down the aisle” with my dad thing is technically a tradition, but I wouldn’t even consider not doing that 🙂 Actually, to add a twist I think it’ll be my dad AND mom.

    I’m not sure what the veil used to mean, but it’s the only time in my life where it would be appropriate to wear one and I think they’re lovely. But yes, agree — I want to be able to look into my FI’s eyes unobstructed when we’re standing up there in person. And even for the walk down, it’s not like you can’t see your face under there. It’s very sheer!
