Wedding Veil : Yay or Nay
I'm just wondering are you going to have a wedding veil (to cover your face) when you marry? Or is it too traditional?

Opinions pls...

I did - I had a fingertip length veil with a blusher that covers your face as you walk down the aisle. I had my husband lift it when we kissed as man and wife. I thought it was very romantic. Also, I'm southern and not as into modern styles when it comes to wedding dresses/accessories. Just my .02

Why not?

I think it's all up to the bride and whether it goes with her dress.
I don't think it's compulsory but a veil is just so romantic and traditional!

I agree, I think veils are romantic and traditional. I had a veil, but because of the style of my dress I didn't have it over the face. My sister in law had a beautiful Reem Acra gown and she had the veil over her face and it looked stunning. I think it all depends on the style and what you want.

I like the idea of the veil that is simply attached to my hair, but I wouldn't want to have one covering my face...I would feel far to clausterphobic and weird to have something covering my eyes up like that. also the more simple, the better.

I wanted to but changed my mind - it could have worked with my dress. Instead I had a veil attached to my hair..in the back.

A veil in the front will diminish what you see..I think it's up to you what's most important - the vision you imagine of yourself on your wedding day or seeing things clearly

No veil. But an attachment to the wedding gown that is integral to the gown which appears to serve the function of a veil. For example, a lacy hood that appears as a cowl collar can be pulled up as a veil during the ceremony. Yet later it is pulled down over the shoulders to appear as an embellishment to the bodice and just teases enough to be modest but not glaring enough to be strapless. Hoping my thread on "Design innovative wedding veils that are 'veil' less" gets some designs. My ideas are mine but I want to see how the other side of the world sees a veil.

I think they look like the bride is covered in mosquito netting. Especially the long ones. They're just awkward and weird and excessively traditional.

Hi, I have started a thread titled, Design innovative wedding veils that are 'veil' less. Perhaps you'd like to view it and give your viewpoint and ideas on that thread. Do you have a design you could describe that displaces the veil? It has gotten a number of views but not sure why no posts.
