    I honestly didn’t think of it…but if I could do it all over again I would totally wear one!

    Yup! I wore a simple tulle, catherdral length veil. I only wore it for the ceremony though. It had trouble staying in so I didn’t keep it on for the first-look or any of the other pre-ceremony photos and I took it off right after the ceremony.

    I love veils! I’ve designed a lace-trimmed cathedral veil with lace-trimmed blusher to wear. I can’t wait to wear it! When else do you get to wear a veil in your life?

    I’m wearing a veil. I was so torn. It felt fussier than what I wanted and none of the trims felt right – or I’d see beautiful ones for $300. I had decided against it, then I was watching an old episode of Say Yes to the Dress with Joan Rivers and she said you have to wear a veil, it’s really the only time of you’re life when you can wear one. Well, I listened to her. I ended up finding a reasonably price raw edge veil on Etsy, finger tip length. I’ve tried it out and am so glad I got it. Can’t wait to wear it this Saturday!

    I’m not wearing a veil. I tried one on when I was dress shopping, and I admit it was fun and had a dramatic effect. I looked very bridal, and my mom and Future Mother-In-Law got teary. But after the initial effect wore off, it just didn’t feel like me. It felt a little too traditional and…religious/virginal?  I don’t know. Being religious and/or a virgin aren’t bad things, they’re just so not me. It felt like playing dress-up.

    I wear my hair in a pixie cut, so I’m hoping to make some embellished bobby pins stay nicely on one side of my head. Not sure if it’ll work with the short hair, though. I’ve also tried some sparkly headbands, but with my haircut, I feel like woodland elf or something with them on!

    I was originally Team No-Veil but fell in love with the idea after joining the bee. My mom dislikes veils (probably where I originally got my opinion from) but it is my day and when else will I ever have the option of wearing one? Veils are just so bridal and can bump your whole look up a notch with minimal fuss. You can always take it off if it starts to slip or if it’s too long to dance in! 

    I had one that I loved on Etsy but decided to purchase this one from DB! It is almost exactly like the Etsy one only $100 cheaper (it is currently on clearance for $19.99, I plan on shortening it to a chapel length) 😊

    I was married once before and wore a mid length veil, worn underneath my up do so that it didn’t cover up any hair. It was just a single layer and had no embellishment. I definitely didn’t regret wearing the veil and thought it looked really good! 

    However, for this wedding, I’ve decided against wearing a veil. It seems a bit weird (for me, no judgement on others) to wear one for my second marriage. Haha, apparently my Fiance said he prefers no veil anyways, so that worked out great! I’m going to wear my hair swept to the side in giant braid/curls so I’m not even sure a veil would work well. Instead I’ve bought a sparkly comb that matches my dress and I’m pretty excited about how it’ll all look

    Originally I didn’t want one, but I ended up purchasing one and I’m so glad I did. It makes me feel really beautiful and my dress is rather simple so I think it adds a but to the over all look. I bought one off Etsy for $60 and sewed these delicated flowers and leaves all over.

    I’ve gone back and forth a thousand times, and I think I’ve decided on no veil for a couple of reasons. My dress is a dusty rose/mauve color with grey beading, and none of the swatches I held against it looked right. Also I intend to wear my glasses for my wedding (getting special frames) and I don’t like the look of both glasses and a veil. A part of me still wants a veil though.

    I went with more of a laurel crown, which I did love.  If I could do it over again, I’d do a Juliette cap like this.  It’s the only type of veil I really love and that would go with my dress.

    I’m planning not to wear a veil. I envision wearing my hair half-up, half-down with a headband like this one:

    I’m skipping a veil. I’ve tried about 10 and haven’t found one that I like yet, so I think I’m just not a veil person.

    YES! I love my veil — I got a simple edge cathedral length but the part I love the most is that it is a waterfall cut so it just swirls around my shoulders! Makes me feel like a bride. 🙂

    brideinthesix :  Looks great! How are you doing your hair? I want my veil to sit higher on top like that and I’m struggling with what to do.
