@lovelylight99:  

When you find out, please let me know!! My ceremony will be outdoors so Im not sure if I want a blusher or not.

@lovelylight99:  My advice to you is to try on your veil with and without a blusher.  I was really opposed to wearing a blusher, until I tried one on with my gown and veil.  I don’t know what it is about the blusher, but I felt like it tied the entire “bridal” look together.  Also, the more I think about it, the more dramatic the transformation between the processional & recessional appears.

I had a blusher. I thought it was romantic and perfect for my dress and my venue. I had no idea people considered them outdated. And here I’ve always considered myself fairly stylish.

Until now, I didn’t know the blusher served an actual traditional purpose; I thought it was just a style thing. 

I say go for it if you want it.

I would just wear your cathedral length veil as a drop veil. This will make it shorter at the back (and you said you were considering getting a shorter one). It will also give you lots of flexibility.

@lovelylight99:  A drop veil is a single piece of tulle that sits flatly on top of the head. They come in tons of sizes.

@lovelylight99:  No, you can just remove the comb and resew it on a bit further back on the veil, so it sits at the back of your head. This will allow you to effectively shorten your cathedral veil, because some of it will now be over your face. Your veil will become a two layer veil when you push it back. Alternatively, you can attach a detachable blusher to your cathedral length veil with some velcro. I made one when I was trying to decide between a cathedral length veil with blusher and a drop veil. Dead easy DIY, and super cheap.

I have a silly question about blusher veils (it could have been even sillier, I just had to Google ‘blusher’ to find out what it meant!). I am probably going to get this veil, the Vera Wang Audrey with lace (pre-loved, cannot imagine paying so much for just a veil!) but I just noticed that the normal version doesn’t come with a blusher. 

Do you think it looks better with or without a blusher? I kind of like the sweet tradition of having my dad (or husband) lift it up from my face, but I am a bit concerned about having a messed-up birds-nest of a tulle situation going on on my head for the rest of the ceremony, ha. 

If I do decide to go with a blusher – can I just get it attached? With some extra tulle? Can a seamstress do it?

Also, any general thoughts about how the Audrey veil looks with the Georgina gown (last pic)? This will most likely be my dress and I really loved this bride’s overall look. Is it too busy though?

@Saloria83:  “Oh I love the blushers. I am very into the vintage look. It is so classy and romantic. If it goes with the dress I would do it.

I was going to say the same thing. I love blushers!

I am doing a cathefral length veil and no blusher because I think the blusher takes away from the simplicity of the long simple veil. Otherwise I like the tradition of a blusher, I just don’t like how they look.

I think blushers are beautiful and a wonderful idea even with your mom walking you down the aisle. I myself will be doing a blusher, hope that helps!
