Hi fellow bees! Well I am in a sticky situation, my dress looks like this:
Should I wear a veil with this? I know veils are very "traditional" and my wedding is going to be traditional, but I feel like when I try different veils on that i look like a witch. Any length or color or design. My mom and future momma-in-law want the veil, and I already got a dress that has a super-long train because they like it (thank god its detachable!) but how do I break it to them that the veil is just not ME? Any help I would appreciate!

I have a very simple dress, so for me a veil (long and short combo) is important. Your dress is elaborate (and beautiful) so I get why you think a veil may be ‘too much’. Have you looked into birdcage veils, or a simple ‘poof’?

Can you wear a veil at the ceremony and take it off for the reception?
If its a super traditional wedding, and you have location that will support the look, why not? how often do you get to wear a veil?
If you really don’t want one, don’t wear one. But think about it first. You may change yoru mind ( i sure did! )

If you’ve tried on a number of different styles and colors but just don’t think veils are "you", don’t wear one! Its completely up to you – not your mother or Mother-In-Law. I’m still on the fence on the veil issue. I may do what TallBride is suggesting and go with the veil for the ceremony and take if off for the reception.

Beautiful dress! Personally, because it is not personally important to you and your dress has a lot of detail, I wouldn’t worry about one. I’m wearing one only because the lady at the bridal shop put on on and I was like "oh wow, I like veils, what a surprise!" do you, honeybee

LOVELY dress!! I really think you could go either way and be fine, its your wedding – go with what makes you happy! But if you do decide its important to go with the opinions of Mom and your Mother-In-Law, you could consider a birdcage veil, or a shorter, less dramatic veil. You could wear it for the ceremony and take it off for the reception if you want. Whatever you do, make sure you try on a bunch of veils before you decide to eliminate them from your wedding day ensemble. 🙂
