    I was against wearing a veil but my mom insisted I try one when I picked my dress and I ended up loving it. It just brought every thing together. I went with a simple fingertip length veil that has a bit of beading on the outside edge to match my dress.

    I'm wearing one, it's fingertip length because I didn't want to cover the train of my dress. Honestly its all about personality, I've been dreaming of having that moment of the veil being lifted off of my face since I was a kid; so for myself it was no real question.

    I’m skipping it! I didn’t think I wanted one to begin with and when I tried one on with my dress I didn’t like wearing it at all lol. Our wedding is outdoor and only about 90 people so I don’t think it’s necessary. They usually remind me of really big church/banquet hall weddings

    Im wearing one but it is finger tip length and matches the lace on my dress. Probably only for the ceremony though.

    I won’t be wearing one. Because I’m petite and really young looking, I don’t want to risk looking like a doll or a cake topper xD

    I was a hard no until trying one (for mom) at the bridal salon and now Im on the fence.
    I found this listing on Etsy, and they're affordable enough that I wouldn't feel bad if I only wore it for a few photos or the ceremony. https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/539243692/best-price-soft-veil-cathedral-elbow

    My sister spent 300$ on hers and never wore it because the wind was pulling it too much. you can easily get away with just a nice hair piece,

    I didn't wear one and there were no regrets.

    I think it's definitely dependent on what you want. Don't decide to go with one because you want to go against traditions or because you want to stick with traditions, and also don't base your opinion on the most recent fashion. For example, I've always dreamed of having the moment of my Fiance lifting my veil at the alter and I bought one that can do just that. Then I saw photos of beautiful long cathedral veils that don't have the front and I almost got swayed. I sat myself down and asked what was most important to me, and in the end it was having that vision of my Fiance lifting the veil.


    Another option is you could visit a Bridal Salon and try on veils, take photos of yourself in the dress with & without veils to help you decide.


    Hope this helps!

    Personally I wouldn’t force it, if the veil didn’t look or feel right then I would think of an alternative. A really fancy hair comb or those bridal headbands. I always thought that I would be getting married in a beautiful white wedding gown, but when I went to try them on none of them felt right on me including the veil. I have a short torso so nothing sat right and I couldn’t see any of them as the one I walked down the aisle in. The bridal shop I went had a section of evening gowns and that is where I found my dress, in a champagne colour. I couldn’t be happier with my choice and I can’t wait to wear it, and none of it was my original vision.

    I wore a cathedral length veil - I always pictured myself wearing one so the only thing that would have stood in my way was the dress not going with it (would never wear a cathedral length in a tea length dress for example).

    Veil yes or no ?? 1

    (excuse the bra and the dress not fitting right - this is the only pic I have of the veil atm and it's from my first appointment when I found the dress)

    I wasn’t sold on the veil in the beginning either but after finding a veil that perfectly matched my dress I couldn’t resist... I will just be wearing it during the ceremony and for some pictures
