I’m also lost on this one. I prefer the way it looks with veil over, but I really want to wear my veil all night and show off my pretty hair, so I think I might be going for the veil under. Most photos will be from the front anyway (which kind of negates my point about showing off my hair, but nevermind).

regarding the veil over my face…. Ugh… This is something my mom and I have been disagreeing ovEr. I hate the idea of having my face covered and seriously felt claustrophobic while trying a veil on over my face… So I will just be getting a longer one tier veil to avoid all of this. 

I think veil over face can look really pretty but it’s definitely not for me!

@Camgurl16: This is a two-tiered veil I tried on with the top tiered pulled over my face. While it’s not the veil I’m going with (Mom decided she wants to make my veil), I love how it looks with it in front.

I wore my veil pinned over my hair.  Of course I wore my hair down so its a bit of a different look than most brides, but I loved the way it looked!

Under ๐Ÿ™‚ I too struggled with this decision but once my veil arrived in the mail, I knew under my hair is what I wanted. The gathering at the comb of the veil was oddly puffy and not very asthetically pleasing. I was going to tuck the comb over my hair and wear the pins at the top of the comb to hide it, but I really wanted to feature my hair too. If you plan on taking it off right after the ceremony, I say over the hair is fine, because you’ll have a chance to showcase our updo when it’s off. I actually left mine on all night. You only get to wear a veil once in your life ๐Ÿ™‚

@Coral99:  Me too! I’m glad I’m not the only one. I call them butt veils. I’ve yet to see one I like. If it’s your style, that’s fine, but I just don’t like them one bit.

I wore my veil under my hair because I didn’t want it to ‘disturb’ my hair. I was afraid to wear the veil over my face because of some irrational fear I have about the veil sticking straight up as my dad tried to uncover my face…I dunno I’m paranoid.

I didn’t even know under was an option. I like the look of over better. Under seems kinda out of place.

I think this depends ENTIRELY on how you are going to wear your hair. I wore a high bun on my wedding day, so I would have looked like an 80’s pop star if I wore my veil over the bun ๐Ÿ™‚ So, I wore mine under and really loved the look. However, if I had decided to wear my hair lower like the ladies above, I definately would have worn my veil over. I don’t have access to my pictures right now, but these are examples of what I mean: http://www.giacanali.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/042_giacanali.jpg, http://fashionbride.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/high-bun-9.jpg?w=530&h=733

I love my veil over my hair and took it off right after the ceremony.
