I wont be wearing one. A veil signals something like purity, or virginity or something. None of those things are the case. I have a child…in the words of Miranda Hobbs, the jig is up!
I actually much prefer a hair flower

I am wearing a 3 tier elbow length veil. Mainly because I love veils and also because it will help hide my upper arms which I am self conscious about. I am also doing a tiara with it.

I decided against a veil because it didn’t quite go with the sweater-skirt combo I had going for our courthouse ceremony. 😉 I wore a flower instead.

I always knew a veil would be too traditional for me. Then one of my consultants suggested I tried it and I thought why not. I started laughing hysterically. It was totally NOT me! Yea, no veil for me!

It was very important to my mom that I wear a veil. She feels very strongly that a bride needs to have some sort of veil, and since she had been so helpful during the planning process and never asked for anything else (and I never really had the luxury of time to experiment with different options) I opted to go with the veil they plopped on my head at the bridal shop when I was trying on dresses. My mom didn’t start crying until they put the veil on, so I said, “I’ll take this one!”
If I had more time to pick and choose the best veil for my dress, I don’t know what kind I would have ended up with, but I would have had a veil for sure, no matter what, for my mom. 🙂

I’ve always wanted to wear a veil. It makes me feel sooooo bridal.
Like my dress is awesome, and I feel awesome in it, then you put the veil on my head and I cry. I think it just completes me as a bride 🙂

I feel the exact same way. I only got emotional when I added the veil to my look!

I would, but those suckers are expensive.
I bought a crappy cheap one on ebay for $10 which needs some work, and I think I am too lazy to fix it up. No big loss.
I have the world’s most beautiful hair flower which is made out of feathers and I totally love, and I think it probably suits outdoor ceremony and picnicing in the park better anyway.

Also, if you want a relatively plain veil without a lot of embelishments you might try http://www.occanseydesigns.com
You can get a veil anywhere from 30 bucks and up depending on the length, cut, fullness, embelishments, etc you want on it. I got a 50″ plain edge ivory veil, standard cut, standard fullness with rhinestones scattered and a 3.5 inch metal comb for 70 bucks.

Hee hee. I alway get a kick out of twitting those old foolish traditions though. I mean, I’d been told in the past that a white gown is for a virgin too. Too bad suckas, I’m wearing one anyway. 😉

So, I went with this one, an unembellished shoulder length circle veil from etsy seller YesterEra: http://www.etsy.com/shop/YesterEra I like that it’s not even gathered much. I might just wear it for the ceremony. Thanks so much for your opinions and comments.

I wasn’t set on wearing a veil but whenever I was trying on dresses the look never felt complete without one. My mom literally would go from not liking a dress to loving it the minute I put a veil on. I have no idea what is wrong with her haha. In the end loved my dress but I LOOOOOVED my veil.

I was unsure of the veil thing until I asked my Fiance what he wanted to see me in on our wedding day and he said:
1- a dress with lace and “glitter”
2- a veil.
So, that sealed the deal for me! I am wearing a veil for the ceremony and a flower with a small birdcage part to it during the reception… so I get to rock both looks that night!

The glitter part makes me giggle a little. Actually, I’m not sure my fiance will like it, because both of us typically like things very plain, but we’ll see anyway. 😉
