If you went to a wedding and the bride wasn’t wearing a veil…Would you think that is weird? I know it is my day and I should decide what I want. I really don’t want to wear one, I want to show off my wonderful hair-do! Just looking for opinions really lol 🙂

@armybride2014: No, I wouldn’t think it was weird.
You could always wear your hair up and tuck the veil under so that it’s not hiding your style!

If you don’t want to wear one, then don’t! If the bride wasn’t wearing a veil at a wedding I attended, I honestly wouldn’t even think twice about it. More and more women are breaking traditions, and this is just another one.
I wasn’t originally going to wear a veil, but after I tried one on with my dress I realized this will be the only time in my life where I can get away with wearing a veil. So why not?! Have you tried one on with your dress, just to see how it looks? Maybe you even want to just wear it for the ceremony and then take it out? It’s obviously up to you, but it’s just a thought! 🙂

I had a friend who went sans-veil at her wedding and she was beautiful. No one brought it up that I noticed, plus it showed off her hair as well as her shoulders and the buttons on the back of her dress.
I suppose January in MO isn’t too warm but one of the reasons she chose not to was because of heat. The wedding was July in Wisconsin!
I say do what you are most comfortable with. Even if anyone thinks it’s weird no one would (or rather, SHOULD) say anything to the bride on her wedding day.

Thanks so much everyone, I think I will try to put my hair up next time i try on my dress so i can at least try some veils on and decide after that. I am just worried about my mom or grandma being too traditional…. :/ we will see! 🙂

@armybride2014: No not at all, each to their own and not everything suits everybody

Hmm… Well I am wearing a veil only for the ceremony! I didn’t think it was important to me until I put one on and realized someday i may regret not having worn one. Same with my future SIL. She had a gorgeous updo (I’m just wearing my hair curled and down, and maybe halfback) and clipped her veil in underneath the updo, then took it out after the ceremony! It was gorgeous. I couldn’t decide what to do for my hair, so I am doing a flower crown for the before pictures like after our first look (a bit of a hippie 🙂 ) and then the veil for the ceremony, and then just a pretty hair clip thing, that I am wearing with my veil, will be all that is in my hair for the reception. Easy way to change your look without changing your dress 🙂
