Traditionally bride's wear a veil. Are you keeping to that tradition by wearing one or not bothering? Either way what's your why in having or not having a veil?
Not wearing a veil mostly because it wouldn't suit the hair look that I want to go for
No veil for me. I think they look lovely but it’s not my style. We’re going for simple and rustic for our big day 😊
I wore a veil but I think both with or without looks great. Just depends on personal preference. I took mine off during the reception
I didnt wear a veil dont like them
My hair piece was much too beautiful to cover up with a veil!
I wore one as liked the tradition, but didn’t wear it over my face at all. I wore it underneath my updo (more of a low-do actually ). Lots of veil inspiration on Pinterest x
Third time (lucky hopefully) doesn't feel right to wear one
I wore a veil when I got married.
I didn't wear one as it woudk cover the back of my dress which was the best part on the dress x
I had one but I only had it at the back of my head not offer my face, it just made me feel like the a princess and pulled the whole dreds together
half day vail on half day off
For me my veil felt like it completed my whole look and made me feel like a bride. I also borrowed mine from my sister in law which was so lovely for me 👰
Having a veil because it looks pretty but just at the back not doing the face covering thing
No veil, flowers intertwined into hair half up do x
I didn’t because as i had nice detailing on the back of my dress i didnt want to cover up. Plus we got married last weekend and i was worried it would be a bit breezy
I'm wearing one at the back not front. Just having one because I didn't like the look without it. Made me feel more like a bride.
I didnt had a nice hair accessory and my hair done up. Also I didnt really want to wear a veil.
I'm having a veil (cathedral length) because my dress doesn't have a train I still haven't decided exactly how my hair is going to be just yet xx
I wasnt gonna have one but when i tried on the dress and had a veil that came just above the elbows on and i loved it so i am having a veil and a tiara.
I wore no veil as i had short hair and all i had was a hair clip in my hair
Really didn't want one and then tried one on with my dress and my mum fell in love and insisted (she paid for my dress and I had only used half my budget by sale shopping so it wasn't going over)
I wore one because when I was deciding if I should, someone said, “When else in life will you ever get the chance to wear one?” So I thought sod it. I’m going full Princess.
Love a veil but never over the face
Ive one simply because it feels complete and it looks amazing with my dress... really compliments it I feel like a proper Bride with it on (it wont be over my face though)
mum wanted me to wear a veil, i didnt.. in the end we compromised and i wore it in the church only and then yanked it off.. i told mum i feel like a bonboniere in it and i aint no almond lol.. decide to go with a short veil as my train was so long on the dress i didnt want a piece of net covering.
I'm having a veil because it does make a wedding dress look more 'bridal'. I'm only going for a single tier, and no blusher. It will just be put on the back of my head. As it's a single tier, it's so light I wont even know I'm wearing it!!
I wasn't going to as I am 54. But nearer day I thought sod it, glad I did 😁
I’m having a beautiful bespoke one made to match my dress
The veil finishes the bridal look, loved mine but forgot to put my blusher down
I didn't wear one, I had a tiara instead. I don't even like having my hair down so the idea of a veil flapping around all day did not appeal!!
I'm not wearing one, I'm uneasy about a lot of bridal traditions coming from bad treatment of women so it's one of a few old fashioned things that won't be at my wedding
Fiancé is, wasn't going to but I said I would like to raise it so she is going to, probably the only part of the tradition we are doing but I'm old school
I’m not having a veil, I’m also wearing a black wedding dress 😅. I’ve been married before and did the whole white wedding, with horse and carriage etc....it went pair shaped when my husband cheated, so this time, I’m going to be me on my wedding day, with the man I should have met 20 years ago 😁
Nope didn’t want one didn’t have traditional dress either I was 46 second marriage
Im in two minds not sure if it will suit me . Plus at my age I don't want to be mutton dressed as lamb
Depends on what else you want. I haven’t gone with a veil because I’m having a hair vine in my hair at the back, in the hairstyle I’ve chosen and brought a tiara to go at the front. For me a veil would just be too much. Go with what looks right for you, but consider your accessories to.
I had a veil and tiara but didnt have it over face just at the back on my updo
Like in the photo if u zoom in
No veil for me!
I wore a long veil, it was even longer than my dress. I wasn't sure at first but when i tried a few on with the dress it just made it come alive. It also resulted in some beautiful photos with my 10 year old daughter holding it for me on the day.
Not wearing a veil, I feel like a little girl playing dress up but more importantly the back of the dress is stunning so I want to show it off ☺️
I wasn't having one. Had no intention of having one. But I tried on one with my dress and it really set it off so I'm now wearing one.
No veil for me, I had a lovely back on my dress didn’t want to hide it, had a lovely headdress though x
I have a veil, it’s waist length as I didn’t want to take the beauty away from the dress as the detailing is so intricate. I don’t think I’ll have the veil over my face walking down the aisle but think it looks so pretty with the dress x
Not wearing a veil, didn’t want to cover the back of my dress as it’s very pretty and detailed
I had a veil and had one because for me it wouldn't have completed my outfit and i wanted to be traditional. X
I had a veil... I felt it made my look. Didn't feel like I was getting married without one!! but I only wore it for the ceremony as it was annoying throughout the day. X
I had a veil, but only because I wanted it because I thought it looked nice. I took it off though as it got very annoying haha!
I'm having a veil. Was adamant I didnt want one but I put it on and I loved it. Just go how u feel
I’m waiting a veil and a tiarax
No veil. I was never that keen but my mum said I didn’t look bridal without out. She finally came around when every veil I tried on just got caught on the beading on my dress which meant I couldn’t move my head!
I’m going all out why the hell not 😂😂xx
I originally said no veil, but when I tried one on with my dress, it just complimented it so well, I fell in love with the look. It didn’t hide or ruin the detail on my dress either. Just made me feel more like a bride. I took it off after our first dance though.
No veil for me, I've shorter hair and there's nowhere to clip one on and a hairband doesn't sit right.
I had a veil, I felt that it finished off my bridal vision. It was a frame for my face and dress, and complimented it. I originally wanted a knee length, maybe just to the floor length, I ended up with a 2mtr one, that was the full length of my dress, complimented it beautifully. It really is up to you, try one on in a shop if you're curious. There is no right or wrong decision. There are a great number of brides who opt not to have one, equally the same as those who opt to have one xx
I had a veil it was my moms from 1975 so was my something old, I got my mom to put it on as well just before I walked down to my now husband it was a lovely moment between us xxx
Had a veil, finished off my bridal feel. Took it off for the first dance and changed in a tea dress.
I didn't have a veil because I had a cape. Both would have been too much 🤣
I had one. I only decided 6 weeks before but really happy I had one. Just took it off after the first dance . I loved it that much haha xx
Not having a veil as I have a very intricate back to my dress that would be hidden
The history of the veil completely put me off. I don't think you need one to look bridal!
It's the only time you're gonna wear one so why not!
No, it's old fashioned, plus I wore black x
No veil for me... Just totally not me! I have some flowers in my hair... I loved it and felt like myself!
I didn't have a veil because it was my 2nd marriage (did that 1st time round) just wore a diamonte and pearl tiara instead
I wasn't going to have one until my dad asked if I was!
I didn’t have one, simply because it didn’t fit with my dress and there was no need for it 😊👰🏼
Nope, it made me look like an old woman
I didn't wear a veil because it would of hidden the back of my dress I wanted the back of my dress to be seen in the photos. Also it was money I didn't need/want to spend x
Most people who choose not to have a veil either do it to save money or just because it can hide the lovely hairstyle or the detail of the dress
So far no veil, but I've changed my mind about everything else so far so who knows
I don't really like having stuff on my head so choosing to be comfortable :)
I was adamant I wasn’t having a vail. But when I tried on my dress I loved it but thought there was some thing missing. The shop assistant put cathedral length vail on me and it looked beautiful! It was perfect. So I ended up having it lol. Xxx
I wore my nan's veil. Don't think I would have otherwise. I only wore it at the back but so glad it was a part of my day
I really wanted my normal hippy music festival look of flowers in my hair ......
No bothering x
I didn’t have a veil because it would have hidden the stunning detail on the back of my dress and it didn’t suit me anyway x
I wore a veil, but I need'nt've. It spent most of the day down my back, and now it just hangs, prettily in my study.
I wore my mums veil and had it over my face walking down the aisle and pulled it over at the alter. I love it. It was my something borrowed. Wore it all day and night
Considering asking for my mil's veil as my something borrowed. She hired her dress so her veil is the only thing she has and she doesn't have a daughter to give it too.
Not wearing one, I am having a tiara instead
100% wearing a veil. It looks beautiful and traditional and makes me feel like a bride, and when will I ever get the chance to wear a veil again? Xx
I am having a veil and a tiara it looked beautiful with my dress and loved the mystery it brought to my look x
