    I’ve always known I was going to wear a veil. I feel like it completes the “look” 🙂

    I am 95% certain I am not going to wear a veil.  First off, I have a lace dress and the bridal shop suggested a long veil which I definitely don’t want to wear.  Secondly, I think a hair piece looks so much more modern and I really want to put modern touches on a traditional wedding.  And I don’t want to mess with it. I should be doing my final fitting soon and I will make a decision for sure.

    I didn’t think I wanted a veil at all.  When I went to pick up my dress and tried it on, they told me just to try a veil and I loved it.  I also always thought I would wear a birdcage veil if I wore a veil and I hated the birdcage veil on me.  I ended up loving a fingertip length veil that I couldn’t afford but my Mother-In-Law made one for me.  So definitely try one on and see how you feel then.

    I’m wearing a veil for the ceremony but it’s coming off for the reception.  It’s tradition and I’m pretty traditional as far as the wedding goes.  I would wear it all night but it’s really long there is no way I’m carrying that thing around all evening.  My mother is trying to convince me otherwise…

    I knew for sure I wanted a veil and I knew I wanted 3 different looks

    I had a metallic edge cathedral veil for the ceremony and the tulle blusher in the front of my face. At the end of the ceremony I took the blusher off and took pictures with just the cathedral veil. Then when the reception started I changed into a birdcage veil. So I got to progressively change throughout the day

    I never once considered not wearing a veil. It also wasn’t an option (in my mind) to take it off for the reception either. I didn’t feel like a bride without one and I’m all about tradition and grew up dreaming of wearing one.

    @kissa2727:agreed! You can wear a beautiful dress, but a veil is the cherry on top or the lipstick on the face:)

    @JewishBride: I might wear mine for the reception but just change it so it isnt at the top of my head like at the ceremony to the back under my updo…

    I don’t really want one. My mom is making me wear it (ceremony+reception). LOL. That said, I can’t vote in your poll because my answer is “Yes, unfortunately.”

    I just never really wanted one. I thought about just throwing one on for the ceremony to make the grandmas happy, but they’re way too expensive for that! My mom just wore flowers in her hair, so I also didn’t have any pressure from her or I probably would have caved to tradition.
