    I wanted a veil at first, but then the more I thought about the wind coming in off the ocean, the less I cared if I had one. Then I also didn't want to cover up the back of my dress, as the back of my dress is not plain. I may still decide to have one to take down and see what the wind is like, but my Mom will make it, so it won't be a big expense. Maybe I will mention the weights to her.

      I'm getting married on the beach, and I wasn't planning to wear a veil at first, but I'm starting to like the idea of having one.

      So, for those of you who got married on the beach, did you wear a veil or not? Would you do it again or would you change it?

      Thanks,

      Sorcha

          Hey girls,
          I am having a beach wedding in Key West. Our ceremony is casual elegance. My FH is wearing a suit but no tie. My FH suggests I not wear a veil since it may be windy and be blowing all over the place. I am undecided. Anyone going through the same problem?

            It can be pretty windy. Some brides worn veils, some just put on some tropical flowers. Whatever you feel like having. Why don't you bring a veil with you and if it gets too windy then don't wear it? Or wear during ceremony and take it off for reception..

              I was married outside at a gazebo overlooking the ocean on a breezy day and my veil blew around a good bit. In most of the pics DH is actually holding it down as part of the pose! I wore my hair up and chose to attach my veil underneath so it didn't blow into my face, and that really helped. I was always going to wear a veil regardless as I felt it completed my look and made me feel more like a bride. With that said, the brides in most of the weddings I saw were not wearing veils.

                Thanks for the ideas Sharon. I was thinking about your idea taking it off for the reception but wearing it for the ceremony. Hope it doesn't mess my hairstyle. :)
