I would have it bustled because it will definetly get in the way otherwise and you don’t want someone stepping on something attached to your head!  I don’t have pictures though.

One of my friends wore her long veil to the reception, and it kept slidding off of her head.  It’s actually crooked in many of the reception pics.  If you must wear it, have it bustled (if possible).

I will be getting rid of mine at the reception so that I can dance my heart out!

I was wondering this same thing. I also would like to wear my veil to the reception. Some people have told me that they never had a problems while other told me to have it bustled. I think it depends on how long the cathedral veil is.

it depends on the reception – if you are gonna be hitting the dancefloor – get that puppy bustled or have a blusher to wear instead – it WILL get stepped on. and its not pretty – you can ask my sister on that one. thank GOD it was easily detatchable from teh combs or she would have had her head yanked off!

I agree with getting it bustled. Someone will inevitably step on it or it will get torn which will not be flattering in pictures.

hahhaa wow that sounds horrible ..getting your head yanked off possibly. Definitely get it bustled …the most annoying thing is wanting to dance or simply walk around and you have something to hold or watch that people don’t step on. You will most likely be uncomfortable all night.
