I have opted. for no veil just a head band!  simple but still just the right amount of pop!

As a comprimise I am doing a bird cage veil to add a little bit of tradition without feeling "netted" :)

Great article!  I was leaning towards NO but now it's YES....because I think my formal dress needs one!

Definitely veil, but not with a blusher, just in back.

I'll be wearing a mantilla veil to compliment the lace of my dress :)  My FI's mom & sister bought it for me as a gift :)

Why wear such a formal dress without the veil.  It's a tradition to wear the veil.  I'm going to wear a long cathedral Alencon Lace Veil for the church and a cage veil for the reception.

(Perdon por escribir en español) yo soy anti velo, es un diema que he tenido durante mucho tiempo, y aun no me he casado peor mi decision ha sido velo-chaqueta.


velo largo que sobrepase mi vestido y chaqueta para el frio de otoño.


(Sorry for writing in Spanish) I'm anti veil, is a dilemma I've had for a long time, and even worse I have not married my decision has been veil jacket.

long veil over my dress and jacket for the cold autumn.

We've had so many brides contact us that said they didn't plan to wear a veil - but once they tried one one they felt "complete" as a bride.


There are so many styles available - you can truly get any look to compliment your style.  Browse our online gallery - and if you don't see what you like just let us know!  There aren't many times in your life you get to wear a veil - go for it on your big day!

I don't think you're supposed to be using the forums to sell your veils occansey.


I will be wearing a veil but only for the ceremony. For the reception I will be wearing a flower pin. When I tried on wedding dresses it just didn't feel complete. When I put a veil on it did. :)
