    I voted no – as the day that we got married was a very windy one in Jamaica and trying to control my hair was bad enough.  I was actually against wearing a veil from the beginning and opted to do a silk peony flower in my hair instead.  If I was going to do a veil, I would have chosen a bird cage veil.

    I am trying to figure out the same thing.  I was thinking about just having one for pictures.

    I wore the Hawaiian equivalent of a veil … that is, the haku lei 🙂

    I would say no veil for a beach wedding.  I have seen wedding shows on tv where the bride has a beach wedding and her veil is all over the place. It takes away from the ceremony.

    I did not, and thank G-d I didn’t, because it was SO windy. I’m so glad my hair was up and controlled.

    You have to know your beach though. Is it a windy time of year and a windy beach? The wedding coordinator at the venue should be able to tell you.

    If you do wear a veil, the shorter the better. I just put flowers in my hair.

    I have to disagree with most of the other opinions.  I am also planning a beach ceremony and am planning on wearing a veil for the ceremony.  I really think that it puts the finishing touch on the wedding day.  I’m trying to decide if it is doable to do a long veil or if a short option would be better.  If worst comes to worse and it is too windy to wear it you can always decide to not wear it and take some pictures afterwards with it on.  I feel it is really based on personal preference and if the weather will cooperate :)!

    I’d wear one, but make sure that sucker is clamped onto your head like the dickens!  My ceremony was indoor, but we took photos at the beach afterward and it just kept flying off my head, it was very annoying!

    You can always get veil weights. I heard that they work wonders. I’m making my own to match the lace on my veil. I’m not getting married on the beach but in a garden on a cliff/hillside overlooking the ocean. It may still be windy so I’m using weights to tame my cathedral veil. I know some people think that cathedral veils should only be used in churches but it is my wedding and my head. I personally think that they look beautiful outdoors.

    my Fiance specifically asked for one and as i has no strong feelings one way or the other I couldn’t say no!
