Okay I’m pretty sure that you walk down the asile with the blusher down. Then the father of the bride raises it to give you a kiss on the cheek. Do you leave it back at this point or point it back down? If Dad lowers it back down then when would the groom raise it? I’m not sure if I want all my pictures with the blusher down while we take our vows. But it would be neat to have it down for part of the ceremony.

sometimes the father raises the veil sometimes the groom does, ask your fiance which he’d prefer, sometimes the father raises it and gives a kiss on the cheek and then puts it back down.

Yeah, I think it is personal preference. I’m going to have my dad flip it back because I don’t want it in my face for the ceremony.

Everyone usually says it’s a personal preference but I will keep checking this post because I do want to see what other people have said and who has done what.

- Wedding: June 2018 - Millenium Biltmore Hotel
My mom raised my veil/blusher after my walk down the aisle. I kept it back during the ceremony, because I wanted to be able to see my husband and everything else clearly. The way we did it turned out great. Regardless, it’s definitely a personal perference. You can check my recaps if you want to see pictures of it.

jews do this before the ceremony even happens. we’re having a special ceremony after the ketubah signing called the badeken, where the groom lifts the bride’s veil to make sure she’s who she says she is.

For my sisters wedding my dad raised her veil back after her walk down the aisle. She said she was glad she did because she could see and she has some cute pics of her (with her face visible sans veil) during the ceremony.
i’m planning on doing the same!

Thanks girls for the help! I’m thinking that I’ll keep it back. I went home and played with it some more and it is very hard to see and I almost feel too hidden.
