@Spring2014Wedding:  Agree with PP, just play it by ear.  I planned on swapping mine out for a hair comb but hardly noticed it so kept it in.  Plus it was very securely in place so I worried I’d screw up my hair.


My BFF on the other hand took hers out immediately because she said people kept pulling it out when they hugged her!

Take it off for the reception. Otherwise, every time someone hugs you it will pull the veil. So you end up getting your hair pulled all night and it can dislodge your half-up do as well.

I am wearing a veil and a haircomb for my ceremony and will take the veil off for the reception, leaving this haircomb.

I bought all my jewellry online from the Kate Ketzel store.  Here is what my haircomb looks like.

I’d say have all the photos taken you want wearing it, then take it off for the party. As others have said it may become a bother.

I wore a birdcage with fascinators for my ceremony thinking I’d leave it in all day. It annoyed the @#$% out of me and I basically took it off immediately after. I almost wish I had left it in for a few more photos but oh well. Just go with the flow on that one and see how you feel about it.

You know, I took my out for the reception, but looking back on photos, I kind of wish I had kept it in for at least the first dance.  I loved my veil! But I say just go with the flow – take it out when you feel like doing so! 🙂

I’m taking mine off after post-wedding photos. I have a big bubbble veil and I think I’ll be over it at that point. Plus, I’m wearing a hair flower beneath the veil that won’t be visible until I remove the veil for the reception.

You have ONE day to wear your veil, I say keep it on! I thought I would take mine off, but as the night went on I just didn’t want to let it go. I kept it on the whole night, and at the after party! 🙂

you should have a poll! bees love polls! lol I think a veil would be a bit of a nuissance at a reception. I’ll probably take mine off after the receiving line (we’re doing photos before the ceremony so it’ll be on for that as well). But I suppose if you have a small, light veil it might be doable to keep it on all night!
