I bought a cathedral length, single tier veil with satin trim for the ceremony and pictures…but I want to purchase a second, shorter veil for the reception.
I’m trying to decide between 2 veils – they are both satin trimmed but one is a cascading veil with double layers and one is a single layer.
I love the simplicity of the single layer but also love the drama of the double layer.
My consultant suggested that I remove one layer from the cascading veil to have the best of both worlds but I’m just not sure…what do you think??
Double Layer Cascading Veil
Single Layer Cascading Veil

Honestly, I don’t love any of them 🙁 Maybe something other than a satin trim would look better.

I like the single layer cascading one

At weddings I’ve been to, everyone takes off their veil after the wedding ceremony. You have such beautiful hair; is that an option?

I’ve seen that a lot, too. My SIL took off her veil and wore a flower in her hair for the ceremony, so if you want something you could try that

how about a plain cut edge single layer? i’m wearing a sinlgle layer chapel length for the ceremony and changing into a fingertip length veil. (i’m making the veil myself.) i thought about not wearing one for the reception but when else will i get to wear a veil? and i’ll only get to wear the long one for about 30 minutes.

I love the cascading style, and would definetely vote single layer. But I think that having a raw edge instead of the satin might be better for the reception. A bit less formal, more laid back look for the party. Sort of fades away into your dress, but you still are wearing a veil.

I agree with this. Or maybe crystal along the edge, to complement the beaded/crystal sash?

I agree…I plan on taking it off for the dance, but I want to have a veil on for dinner/speeches/cake cutting/bouqet toss, etc. It’s my one day to wear a veil so I might as well!!
Thanks for all of your suggestions ladies! Very appreciated 🙂
