So I had the thought of wearing a veil on my wedding day. IDK I think it would be kind of romantic for my FH to lift my veil as we kiss for the first time as husband and wife! Butttt I kind of want everyone to see my makeup and such as I walk down the isle in case I mess it up slightly by boo hooing during my vows lol
Thhhhhen I had another thought? Do women even still wear those? I haven’t seen one in a while, then again I haven’t been to many weddings in my life lol
So what do you think Bees? Should I? My FH said it didn’t matter to him, it was up to me.

I have seen veils like this! I personally prefer veils that are just in the back of the head, but then again that is probably because I like the look of the veil under the hair and not covering it.

I just found out my Love does want a veil just not with the blusher. I’m adding a veil now. His first marriage and he deserves it. I think they really add to the “bridal” look. So I’m happy. 🙂

@lynnielou33193 see that’s really cute! @Swebs14 Yeah I may do something like what @lynnielou33193 showed me because I don’t want to cover my hair either. @angyjaxon what is a blusher?
Thanks for hte advice ladies!

I was on the fence about a veil, and was originally planning on wearing one for the church, but not for any of the pictures. It ended up being a very humid day, so I left my veil on throughout pictures to help protect my hair, and I’m SO glad I did. The veil looks so gorgeous and special in the pictures and really made me feel like a bride. I did not wear a blusher (the veil that goes in front of your face). It didn’t feel right on me and I wanted everyone to see my face. Blushers are becomming more uncommon and a bit outdated, though some brides (typically very conservative brides) still wear them.
The other thing you can do is choose a really sheer single tiered veil you can see your hair and dress thru. That is what I did.

I wore a drop veil, and it covered my face until my husband lifted it. I’ll be honest, I really loved it. Veils are sheer-your face is still pretty visible. Plus, for myself, the experience was more important than the pictures. Would a first look have improved the timeline? Sure, but I wanted the experience of my husband seeing me for the first time while walking down the aisle. Would my makeup be more visible without a veil? Probably, but the experience of wearing one was more important to me.
I’m not saying my choices were better, but they were better for me. I realize the origin of the veil is controversial, but I don’t care. Many traditions have patriarchal origins. I found it romantic and mysterious, like I was an awesome present.
