Nope. I want to be able to see all my guests and my Fiance smiling at me as I walk down the aisle!

I had a two tiered veil (blusher and chapel length) and I wore the blusher in front as I walked down the aisle, then my dad flipped it back when he "dropped me off" at the front.  I am really happy I did it this way because it just seemed so romantic to me, and I loved the way it looked!  (But keep in mind I had a very traditional church wedding… it might not strike the right tone in another setting…)  And I had no trouble seeing through my blusher veil.

No flip, guess I didn’t have that option since I wore a mantilla veil.

But I can imagine that the veil could obstruct your view.

I’m actually debating this now.  I went from thinking I probably wouldn’t have a veil to falling in love with the shoulder-length circle style.  I think it looks really pretty having it down over my face, but I’m not entirely comfortable with the whole flipping-when-we-get-to-the-end-of-the-aisle thing.  Both my mom and my dad will be walking me so maybe it would be ok in that case, not so traditional.  Otherwise I’ll probably just get some pictures with it down. 

Of course, this is completely putting the cart before the horse since I haven’t even found my dress yet…

I’m definitely doing this.  My veil is a drop veil, and looks so good over my face.  And, I can actually see ok through it.

It would drive me crazy to have something over my face! So…uh…I guess that’s a no. 🙂

nope! we’re doing a first look beforehand anyway so i think it’d be kind of silly to do it during the ceremony =). i think it would be a lovely touch if you were seeing your husband for the first time walking down the aisle! the moment he flips the veil over could be quite magical!

I had a mantilla, so there was no blusher to ‘flip!’

I had a blusher to flip over my face. I did it and it was awesome. It felt so amazing! My veil was very sheer and I had no problems whatsoever seeing my guests or my way down the aisle. i say try it out before you walk down the aisle to check your vision.

Eeeeek! I never thought about not being able to see through the blusher!!!!! 

I am planning on doing it… I guess once I get my veil, I’ll have to try it on and really focus on how hard it is to see through it.

I won’t be doing the flip, but when I told my dad this he looked like I just broke his heart!  I’m feeling a little guilty about it actually!
