    Oh boy…I’m not sure what I’ll end up doing.  I think I’ll have my dad lift it when he gives me away.  But I also like the idea of my dad leaving it in place.  I think I’ll decide after I have it on.  If I have trouble with it, I don’t want it over my face during the vows/ceremony.

    I had a small birdcage viel that really didn’t cover my face, so I wore it the whole night.  No need to lift it to kiss the husband!  But if mine were longer, I would have my husband lift it before he kisses me.  I think that would be so cute!

    I know I am resurrecting an old post, but I am planning on having my Fiance lift mine. I read this blog post from A Practical Wedding and  I fell in love with the idea of having a moment to symbollicaly say to each other, I see you for who you are and I choose you. I am going to talk with my officiant about how to quietly work that in to the ceremony, probably just as we begin our vows. A bit different than the progressive Jewish custom that Meg describes in that post, but I think it’s a lovely idea.

    My mom and dad did it. My dad had said that he wanted to do it, but he ended up needing some help properly adjusting it!

    @SouthernTulip:  I will do the same!

    As for the meaning behind the veil thing… what I’ve heard most is because of the purity/modesty thing. my family is SUPER traditional/old fashioned, especially since my mom grew up in France where weddings follow the old traditions more often. My French aunt was not allowed, or not “supposed” to wear a blusher (or even a veil) b/c she was not a virgin when she got married in the 80’s. Neither was my cousin who got married in France in ’11. They were both bare-headed. Maybe this is just my weird family, though.

    I am attaching no meaning to my own veil other than that I will wear it/lift it however I think is prettiest. haha 🙂

    I’m wearing a veil, just not over my face.  It’s one layer and the comb will be placed in my hair, with it hanging down with my hair.  I personally didn’t want to wear it over my face, just because I think its too old fashioned.  I wanted a veil to look “bridal”, but have been independent for quite some time now (I’m 28) and my Fiance and I live together, thus didn’t feel the need to wear it over my face.
