    I wasn’t planning on wearing when…then I mentioned it my Fiance and he was upset. It was apprently part of his vision of me : ) I thought that was cute so now I am….but only for the ceremony.

    Though I think veils are beautiful, I’m not planning on wearing one on my wedding day. I just KNOW that I would completely screw up my hair style when taking out the veil after the ceremony. Plus I don’t really want to bother with a piece of tulle flapping around on my head and hitting people in the face. One less thing to worry about!

    NOTLBride:  have you heard of veil weights, they help hold the veil down in case of wind

    I wore one to every event I could, my shower (vintage fascinator with veil for tea party shower), bachelorette party (short) and wedding (embroidered chapel length). I just don’t think you look like a bride without one, to me it’s the finishing touch. I did take it off for the reception.

    I was so not going to wear a veil, then my mom wanted to make me a veil.  The alterations lady told me I needed to wear a veil if it was my first wedding, she was hilarious.  Still undecided I relented an told my mom to make it, only planning to wear to the ceremony.  It came out great and I loved it so much I kept it on until after we cut the cake.  My mom hand beaded crystals and pearls all around the edge and it was pefect

    I hadn’t planned to because I was recreating a look from a film, but my Mum kept on at me and finally convinced me to buy one the day before the wedding! So glad I wore one now, if only for this photo:

    I think veils can look so epic and beautiful. But for me personally, I don’t like what they traditionally repesent so I’m just going with a nice hair clip instead 🙂

    I was dead set on not wearing one until I tried a veil on. After that, I was hooked! My great-grandmother then offered the lace from her veil for me to use. My Mother-In-Law took her lace and made my veil from it! I wore it for pictures before the ceremony and during the ceremony.

    I had planned on only wearing my veil during the ceremony and some of the photos before. But then I loved wearing it so much that I wore it through half of the reception (until I couldn’t stand wearing my dress any longer and changed into a second dress I’d bought for going out later).

    I loved the look of a veil on me. It felt very bridal, like the whole “outfit” came together. However I didn’t like a veil over my face… it felt somewhat like a funeral

    I thought I didn’t want one but bought one just in case. I’m so glad I did because it really brought the whole look together 🙂 I took it off shortly after the ceremony, about halfway through our pictures.
