    I am not!

    I want to be able to see everything and want everyone to see me 😉

    I wont be at all!  My mom is really against it!  She said It was such an old tradition, meant to hide the bride’s face through arranged marriages, so that the man would not see his wife until they were married.  Not sure whether or not this is true… but it turned me right off of wearing it over my face!!

    I don’t like how it looks, personally.  So I am not going to do it.  If you don’t want to then don’t!

    I’m not sure what I’m going to do. At first I really didn’t want to do it, but I like the idea of my dad lifting it at the end of the aisle. I am very conflicted and would also love the hear what other people are doing!

    I don’t think it is outdated by any means, it just doesn’t fit how I wanted to look on my wedding day and I had a short dress 🙂

    I wore mine over my face down the aisle. When I got to the end of the aisle my dad lifted the veil. I loved doing this and it was one of my favorite things about my wedding. Seriously, it was one layer of very fine tulle—my vision was not obscured and pictures of me with it over my face look ethereal I like to think. So if your primary objection is being able to see and be seen, I hope you would try on your veil and determine whether it’s really a problem (look in the mirror, take a picture with it down)—for my veil surprisingly it wasn’t at all.

    People do still do it, but I’m not going to.

    i had a blusher but it seemed too puffy, so i didn’t want to wear it down the aisle. i’m jewish so we do an unveiling before the ceremony after signing the ketubah, which is why i needed the blusher. but my photographer didn’t get any pictures of that, and i love the look of a blusher when it’s covering your face, so now i wish i would have just worn it down the aisle.

    It was the only think my dad asked for. Mine came in the other week and it is so shear and doesn’t bother me at all. I am very traditional and wouldn’t have it any other way. And I always cry when I go to a wedding and their dad lifts their veil.

    I won’t be for three reasons:

    1. I want to be able to see everyone as I walk down the aisle – clearly. I have horrible vision already. No assistance on making it worse thank you.
    2. It’s going to be a hot mess to try and make it pretty and lay flat when my father or FH goes to flip it over.
    3. I don’t want it to ruin my makeup as I won’t have a MUA around for touchups!

    I’ll wear it over my face down the aisle and then when we get to the end of the aisle my dad will lift and likely start to cry (as will my mom if she isn’t already) and kiss my cheek and give me away to the fabulous Mr. Twista.
