Just curious how many brides are wearing a veil and how long are you wearing it for? I purchased a veil and am thinking of just wearing for the ceremony but I’m not 100% sure yet. Did you wear it for the ceremony and pictures or even for the reception as well?
I purchased a waltz length veil after my SIL mentioned my Birdcage veil looked to harsh. I hate the long veil lol and will be sticking with my Birdcage veil. I plan on wearing it for the ceremony and pictures only.
I'm doing two veils...dramatic, I know, but here's why:
My dress is short and I've ALWAYS wanted to wear a cute little birdcage veil, plus I think it fits the style of my wedding/dress better.
HOWEVER, I bought my dress off the rack and it's too big for me, so when the skirt gets taken in, my seamstress has offered to make me a custom veil out of the lace that needs to be cut out, which will then match my dress. The style of the lace can't be made into a birdcage, so it'll have to be longer.
So I'm thinking custom veil for the ceremony and pictures, and birdcage for the reception. (Oh, it's also a private ceremony, so no one at the reception will know that I've switched veils - not that that matters...)
Thanks ladies! I think I’m going to wear it for the ceremony and some pictures and then take it off. Now I just need t decide how to wear it with my hairdo or really how I want to have my hair that day I can be so indecisive haha
I am honestly torn about the whole veil situation! I never pictured myself wearing one but when I tried one on with the dress I sorta loved it! My sister is veey insistent that I get one haha but I'm just not sure....have lots of time still to decide. Just funny how your mind can be so swt until you finally try something! I think if i did get one it would be in for the ceremony and someof the photos and then off for some photos and the rest of the night.
Choosing to pass and opt for a custom made cherry blossom side clip ordered from etsy instead. i refuse to spend the money on something that im not wearing for more than a few minutes, as a result of family (read: mom!) insistence/pressure.
I really only bought mine to cover up my open back in the church. I got mine of kajiji for $40 from a really nice newly wedded bride, and it's perfectly lovely If you spent a lot on it I would wear it for longer to really milk it for all it's worth!
I will be wearing a veil, I tried one on, originally I thought it would be a pain but it was pretty comfortable and I loved how it looked. My dress is a tea length so I'll probably have the veil only go to maybe my butt, maybe shorter. My dress has gorgeous buttons down the back so I do not want to take away from that. I'll only be wearing it for ceremony and some pictures. I will not be spending more than $50 on it because of how much it won't be used. My stepmother works in fashion so she has found a ton of designer veils for less than $50. She is also attempting to make one for me. If that doesn't work out she'll just buy one for me.

I just realized my mom paid almost $200 for my veil and I don’t even know how long I will be wearing it! 🙈 talk about impulse buy lol I like your plan though! It’s the only time you’ll be able to wear a veil might as well wear it for as long as possible that day
