I plan on taking mine off after pictures (after the ceremony). But If you want to wear it for the first dances, or for the whole reception, I say go for it!

I took my veil off after the first dance. We did our grand entrance and went straight into the first dance.  It started to feel like it was falling out after than anyways hugging people and the veil pulling from the hugs.  If you can wear it the whole night, why not?

good question! i plan on following this thread bc i’m clueless about this as well 🙂

I’ve been to weddings when the bride kept it on all night, and some where it was off when they made the entrance…

The lady that helped me at the bridal salon recommended waiting till after the first dance.  She said it looks great in first dance pictures.

Usually after the first dance 🙂 But really it’s whenever it gets annoying 🙂 Usually a Cathedral veil will come off more quickly… but if you plan on dancing in a cathedral veil make sure you practice with it on! You’re going to have to figure out the most beautiful way to “hold it”

I’m taking mine off right after the ceremony… haven’t decided if I’ll leave it on for cocktail hour pics or not. I’d take it off before the first dance to avoid stepping on it!

I took mine off right after pictures… I had a cathedral length so there was no way I was making it all day with that thing on. I loved it, but it needed to go.

I have a two-tiered veil- the bottom tier is cathedral length, and the top tier goes to just above my shoulders. I will be wearing both tiers until just after the cermony, and before the reception I will remove the cathedral tier, and wear the shorter tier the rest of the night.

Take it off after pictures, before your grand entrance into the reception!  It sounds beautiful!
