    I love your hairclip, very pretty! If you think a veil will make you look more bridal… maybe have one for the ceremony only and the hairclip for the rest of it? Just a suggestion….

    I dreaded the idea of a veil at first. My mother kind of forced me to get one. Then I regretted the amount that I paid for it. Now, it is my absolute favorite part of my wedding attire. Plus, I’m having a blast with my practice veil lol. Veil weights can keep your veil from being a windy nuisance. Your hair clip is so beautiful too though! If your questioning your decision maybe you should go try some on again. I regretted my veil for 9 months, then I tried it on again & fell in love. Plus, you can always take it off.

    Stick with the hair clip…it’s pretty! A lot of brides do not wear veils…there is nothing wrong with that! Sounds like you’ve already made up your mind anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

    I said you should buy one because when else are you going to wear one?  Your hair clip is adorable btw.  I dunno, in my opinion if you really were sure you didn’t want a veil you wouldn’t be making this thread.  So maybe you should get one.  You can rock the hair clip at the reception.

    @LaurenKK:  =P I have seen people buy threads off of ebay or have them made on etsy for less money than it’d cost to buy one at a bridal boutique.  If you think you’d even minorly regret it you should look into it some more.  I don’t think every veil out there is expensive.  Some are more reasonable.  I mean, I’ve seen veils go for over $600 and I sure as heck didn’t want one that bad.  So yeah =P

    I had a veil for my first wedding and I found it annoying even though I only wore it for the ceremony. I chose not to wear one the second time around it, and I had no regrets. I really enjoyed not having to mess with a veil and I loved the flowers I had in my hair.

    I think if you want the bridal look, you can get a cheap, nice veil on Etsy and then wear the clip for your reception. I decided that even though I never wanted a veil that I loved feeling really bride-y with it on and didn’t want to miss out on that because it isn’t really my “thing” or I thought it would just get in the way.

    I had also decided not to wear a veil, then had a last minute panic about it… I just bought an ivory birdcage veil from ebay (for ridiculously cheap, from here: http://stores.ebay.com/Veils-by-Leslie-V?_rdc=1 ) and it arrived today. I actually really like it, and now I feel calm about it again – because I have the option if I want it.

    I was going to have a birdcage veil, a DIY one even. But I literally changed my mind yesterday. I’m going to have my sister make me a flower wreath. She made one yesterday for my bachelorette and it was beautiful.

    If you don’t feel bridal without one, then I say go for it. There are a lot of cheap ones on Ebay etc. but if you think it will just bug you then I say it’s totally not necessary.

    Just one more thing: When you are wearing a white/ivory/etc gown, all dolled up, at the end of an aisle, holding a bouquet, with all your friends and family looking, you will feel like a bride. When you are dancing with your new husband to the song you chose together while all your friends and family are watcing, you will feel like a bride. A veil does not make a bride! so if you really don’t want one deep down, don’t wear one.

    I wore a veil and a hair clip together at my wedding. I ended up removing the veil after the ceremony to make it easier to dance and mingle at the reception though. Also, I like the idea of getting an inexpensive veil off of Etsy. That’s the route I took and I loved it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    For reference, here is a picture to show how they looked together:
