I'm having a very traditional church wedding and I've been thinking about veils. I'm definitely going to wear one, but just wondering if anyone wore one over their face to walk down the aisle and what you thought of it? None of the weddings I've been to lately have had the bride with a veil over her face, but I quite like the idea of it as I think it's traditional. Any comments welcome :)
Hi I am having mine over my face :)
I had mine over my face. Idea was to do it the traditional way and have him move it back off my face,until my 2 year old freaked out and did it,lol x
if you like it then do it
I'm going to have mine over my face
I had mine over my face, I don't like anything near mine, but i didn't notice it... my husband wasn't allowed to push it back... apparently it's the job of maid of honour/chief bridesmaid... x
I had mine over my face. I had side bits and when I was walking they covered my eyes so I would just say to try your veil over your hair to see how it is when you have your trial. Still glad I had it
I wore a veil but not over my face. Have whatever you like x
A friend of mine got married last weekend and wore her veil over her face. She looked stunning. Ad because you don’t see it much these days it looked really unique and different x
I had mine over my face as I walked down the aisle. Father lifted it at the alter.
I had mine over my face and I lifted it off my face at the alter. Like others say it’s what you would like. If you buy a decent quality veil then you won’t even notice it over your face x
I had mine over my face, was a special moment for my Dad to lift it ️ x
“I quite like the idea” - and there you have your answer. Admittedly, if your question involved slaughtering chipmunks at the altar, or something a little more radical, I probably wouldn’t be so laissez-faire, but in this case you’re probably ok to do what you want to do at your own wedding...
I would say to try it both ways at your fitting, walk up and down to make sure it doesn't compromise your vision. Make sure you feel confident whichever way you choose to wear it.
Hated mine girst time round and couldnt wait to take it off. Im not having one this time (Sept ) and im still getting married in church
If you like it, do it! It’s your wedding you don’t need to do what everyone else does 🙂 but maybe try both and see what you look like? x
Try it both ways. Do whichever you feel more comfortable in. I didn't have over face first time and not wearing one this time.
i wanted it over my face but when i had my hair trail. i have now changed my mind, try it a few different ways and see. what your comfortable with
I did, as did my sister. My friend did too. If you want to do it, do it, it's your wedding. At mine and my sisters we were both MOH and took each other's veil up when we got to the altar. My friend had her mum do it which was a lovely touch
I wore a sparkly, cat ears tiara.
I was going to and wanted to but it didn't look right so had it back. Try it out and go with what you like the look of x
I had mine over my face and my hubby lifted the veil when I got to the altar.
I had mine over my face but i wanted a very traditional wedding
It's your wedding, do what you want. I did and so did my daughter almost 30 years later.
When you have your final fittings try it both ways and see which you prefer. I will wearing a veil but my personal choice is a one tier cathedral veil.
Also think about your hair when deciding. Possibly speak to your hairdresser before making final decision.
I felt it quite claustrophobic so I didn’t have mine over my face... try it both ways and see how you feel x
I’m going to be wearing mine over my face. Then when he says you may kiss the bride, your husband lifts your veil to kiss you. Which I think is so romantic x
