  • poll: Will you wear your veil all night?

    Yes - I am keeping it on all night, you only get to be a bride once, right?!

    No - I am not wearing a veil/I will be removing my veil after the ceremony

    No - I will remove my veil after the first dance

    I am changing my entire hairstyle after the ceremony.

    @skyblueme:  I think you veil is for the ceremony only. IMO it looks weird when the bride keeps it on all night.

    I took it off after the pictures after our ceremony. It was painful when people would hug me and accidentally pull on it.

    I had a two-tier Cathedral length with a blusher and the longer portion came off the comb because it was attached with velcro! It was really fun because I got to wear the long one for Ceremony and pics, but was able to just detatch the cumbersome part and wear the shorter one all night 🙂 It got tugged on a few times by accident but I didn’t mind.

    It would drive me nuts if I had to wear it all night!

    I wore my veil for photos and ceremony and then switched to a flower in my hair for the reception. In retrospect, I wish I would have left my veil on all night. The only downside though is that everytime someone hugs you, it tugs on your hair. So in that regard, it was nice not to deal with all night!

    @skyblueme:  If I wear a veil at all I would want to wear during the first dance. However, that would mean wearing it during dinner for me. Hmmm guess this is something I haven’t even thought about yet! I’m curious to see responses.

    I had a short shoulder length veil and I kept it on all night.  Because it was short it didn’t bother me at all.  I loved it!

    @skyblueme:  I had a fingertip length veil that was securely in place so I wore it all night!


    If it’s comfortable why not… I surely hope no one thought I looked “weird” but I also didn’t wear it covering my face like is traditional for the ceremony.

    I kept mine on all night too.  I had no issue with it.  Your the bride so you can do whatever you want.  Its your day…there are no rules. Wink

    I wore mine for ceremony pics in our church and a few at our photo location, then I took it off for remaining pics/Reception

    I’m only wearing it for the ceremony & pics. It’s coming off before the reception.

    I wore a cathedral length veil that I took off after the ceremony and after family pictures (my mom took it off while my BMs bustled my dress). The dress shop did show me a way to bustle my veil actually but I didn’t want one more thing getting in my way while getting down on the dance floor regardless of length! I had a blingy hair comb (that was in my hair under the veil the entire day) so when the veil came off, there was still something decorating my hair

    Ohh hell no!  I’m taking mine off after the ceremony.  I don’t want that thing getting in the way all night! Smile
