It looks pretty, but I don’t plan to wear mine for that reason! However, thanks for making my decision set in stone!

Cute pics, btw!

Yes, not a good idea to wear veil at reception!!  It will only get ripped off your head or feel like your head is getting ripped off:)

I think it all depends on your preference.  I wore mine the whole time and had no problems!  I’m glad it was in my pictures!

I’m sorry you had trouble wearing yours:( You look beautiful though! I didn’t have any trouble with my waltz length veil.

This makes me feel better for not wearing it! My mom said it would be fine, but I didn’t want to have to worry about it falling in my food or something, so I went with a hair flower instead.

I’m planning on keeping mine on for the cocktail hour and the first dances (our first dance, and my dance with my dad), and taking it off when the dancing really gets going

I plan on wearing mine.  I have two though – one cathedral length one for the ceremony, and a shorter, shoulder length one that I might wear for the reception.

I took mine off towards the end of the cocktail hour after the formal posed pics were done… I thought that worked well.

I had the same issue and it really started to hurt my head by the end of the night because it was in there so tight!  But it’s like pretty heels, hurts so bad and looks so good.

I left mine in for the entire reception and it was perfectly fine – no spills, no real tugs or getting caught, no problems.  I had a shorter veil (not quite fingertip length) so it wasn’t really an obstacle at all.  I found that the overall look just wasn’t complete without it, so I chose to leave it in!!
