    My mom lifted my veil when I got to the alter. Such a sweet moment!

    My dad lifted it to give me a kiss, but put it back down. I really wanted DH to lift it before he kissed me. I don’t remember if I asked him specifically if there was something that he wanted to do, or if I just told him.

    I’m only having my dad walk me half way down the aisle. I honestly wanted to walk alone because I feel like a strong, self sufficient woman, but it would break my fathers heart lol so were doing half and half, so Fi wilit lift the veil before the kiss. 🙂

    @Chelwilly:  I’m walking myself down the aisle, so my fiance will lift my veil when I get to the altar.  My veil isn’t a true two-tiered veil, but it is a drop veil (like the Duchess of Cambridge’s), and I wanted it over my face walking down the aisle but not for the whole ceremony.

    My dad did it, that and walking me down the aisle-were the only 2 symbolic things he got to do. It was a really sweet moment-one of my favorite of the day. Of course my mom had to fix it in the back to makerightly right.

    My dad will be doing mine. Personally, I don’t want it in my face any longer than necessary.
