    I’ve seen brides get their veils yoinked off from hugs, dancing, etc. and it totally messed up their hair in the process…I’d say go without it for the reception.

    I only wore my veil for pictures and the ceremony and not at the reception.  I was going to wear a flower during the reception but I forgot.

    Everytime someone hugged me it really pulled on my hair.  I was afraid it was going to mess up my hair and/or pull the veil out.  

    I was really happy I had a flower hair piece to put in for the reception.

    I have a cathedral veil for my ceremony, so there is no way I could wear it for the reception. I am replacing it with a birdcage vei for the reception (just for the fashion/accessory aspect of It). I will only be a bride once, might as well make the most of it!

    I wore my veil through the ceremony, photos, and first dances.

    I had two veils, one a cathedreal length and one to my shoulders. I took off the long one after the ceremony but wore the short one all through the reception.

    For my first marriage, I wore my fingertip length veil through the entire reception. I ended up being really unhappy with my wedding dress and my veil was my favorite part of my attire. I couldn’t bear to take it off at the reception because it made me feel especially “bridal.” I had a detachable blusher, though, and took that layer off after all the pictures were done, but when I looked back at the pictures, I have to say that I loved the extra fullness of that blusher flipped back on top of the other layers.I will also say that I really didn’t have any problems with my veil getting yanked/pulled/etc. and it wasn’t that heavy.

    Well, for this second (and last!! 🙂 ) wedding, as I’ve been planning my attire, I realize I must just be a veil-loving kind of girl, because I’ve decided to go for a cathedral length veil this time. I assumed that I would take the veil off for the reception because of the length, but now I’m hearing that they can be bustled, so I’m intrigued…

    I have a friend who wore hers almost all night, and I loved it.  I am planning to wear a veil maybe not all night, but most of the night.  Although I’m toying with the idea of changing into a really short, fun veil for the reception.

    i wore a birdcage so it was easy to make it reception appropriate.
