@blushpinkbride:  My daughter is wearing a sherbet colored gown.  At first she did not want a veil.  She wanted to wear some flowers from the dress (removed shoulder strap) in her hair.  She just never saw a veil she really liked or that she thought matched the sherbet color.  Just for kicks and maybe a few bridal session photos, I made a really simple one out of one layer of ivory tulle and one layer of blush tulle.  She tried it on for the first time at her first dress fitting and everybody loved it.  Its not fancy but just enough.  She is still going to wear the flowers in her hair and the veil for the ceremony.  Then take the veil off and just have the flowers.  I had to laugh that she is wearing an $8.00 veil with a $4500 dress.  Go figure.  But we’re all happy!

I fast forward through the jacking up. That’s how much I detest veils. It’s such a strange accessory if not for the cultural/religious symbolism. The symbolism itself is a little much for me even.

But, that’s an unpopular opinion, so do as you please and be whatever means bridal to you!

I didn’t wear a veil and now I wonder if I should have. I think my dress looked better without one, but a veil adds a certain femininity and sweetness. I would suggest that you try some on–and by some, I mean, a LOT! There are so many kinds of veils, it may take a while to find the one that you love. You’ll look beautiful either way but I tend to err on the side of voting for a veil.

@sarahlouise81:  You can certainly look bridal without a veil. I had one at my first wedding, wore it for the 20 minutes of the ceremony and then it came right off. $100 not well spent. lol. You’ll be the only one in a white dress and standing at the altar. You’ll definitely be bridal 🙂

I think you should try some on. It totally depends on what you want and what fells right to you. You dont have to wear a veil. Maybe a birdcage veil would be enough or a awesome hair piece. If you are happy, you will look gorgeous and everyone will know it! Good luck
