    I have a cathedral veil with a blusher, but I will not be covering my face with it. I just thought the extra volume looked nice. You can always get it, and have the option of leaving it behind or covering your face.

    Well… I wore a blusher 🙂 So I obviously said yes 🙂 I’ve also been to many wedding where the bride wore a blusher – and some where the bride didin’t.  I’m super traditional… But I do think I worned my Darling Husband about the blusher/got his opinion at some point along the way so that he would at least know it was a possibility

    I love watching the bride’s face glow as she walks down the aisle, and I think some of that is diminished with a blusher, so I voted against. BUT that is my personal preference. It sounds like the atmosphere of your wedding and gown would be very suited to the traditional blusher if that’s what you decide.

    @jtsmith724:  Hey, fellow Madison bride! Your chapel sounds lovely (I’m curious to know where that is. If you don’t mind PMing me, I’d love to exchange notes on wedding planning in Madison!)

    I’d say try on the gown and veil together, look at it both ways, and just go with whichever way you like better. I also have a very traditional/old-fashioned ensemble, with a lacy, long-sleeved gown and cathedral-length veil that has several tiers and the option of flipping one forward as a blusher. When I did it, though, I just wasn’t sold. I think it looks better on me without the blusher. On another gal, it might be completely the opposite. So, try it both ways and go with your gut feeling.

    Honestly I would go ahead and get it but if at the very last minute you change your mind, you can pull it back and have that little extra volume. You certainly dont want that situation to happen the other way around where you’re wishing you had gotten it at the very last minute! Also keep in mind, How are you wearing your hair? Will the blusher compliment it or wreck the do??

    I love it when a bride wears a blusher so I voted yes. I will be wearing a blusher because I want to have that moment where my Dad lifts my veil.
