    I picked "other" because I'm planning to do it all!!

    If it weren't for all of these gorgeously romantic pics around here of beautiful veils blowing in the breeze, or wrapped around smiling faces, I wouldn't even give a veil a passing thought. BUT, with photo opps in mind, I'm going to wear one for the day after shoot, then take it off...same thing with hair flowers. I plan to perhaps start my ttd shoot with one in, but remove it as we go. But I'm only doing them for my day after/TTD photos. I get hot easy, and don't want anything extra on me that I can't throw off if I want to.

    I hate the idea of regretting NOT doing something...so....overkill? lol

      Veil all the way! You could totally experiment with different looks from the different types of veils out there.

      so many options! you could do a virginal look with a cathedral veil, or go totally chic with a short one.

      the options are up to you! just go try them on with your dress. you'll love it! =)

        No veil for me ! I'm not a veil kind of person. Plus, it would hide the sublime back of my dress

          I'm definitely going to do a veil. We are getting married in a church and I have ALWAYS wanted a cathedral length veil with lace around the edges. So I think I'm going to do it ; ) But thanks to this thread I'm now considering flowers in my hair for the reception (best of both worlds)

            So I think I am really into the bird cage veil and was wondering if anyone else is wearing one, or where to buy one... I would even love it if you have photos of someone or yourself wearing one.

            I really am falling in love with this look and my wedding has a vintage theme and feel it would be a great touch. I am a little unsure if I can pull it off though.

            Thoughts anyone....

              I didn't think I wanted a veil, but fell in love with a cathedral length veil when i bought my dress. I will be wearing orchids along the top of the veil and then taking the veil off for the reception.

                i'm all about the veil! i think the bird cage veil is classic and a must! the only thing about them is that they work sooo much better indoors. bird cage veils have a tendency to stick to your face (because of the lipstick) when its windy. they would make killer photos, though! i say go for it and have a back-up veil just in case the makeup does go all over your face.

                sometimes i think just because it's a DW some brides just shy away with the veil. i think they are such integral part of a wedding and they are what makes a white dress, BRIDAL. IMHO. everyone has a different taste and i understand that. this is just my opinion. :)

                  Joy you rock. I may just do that. Use the bird cage for the ceremony and photos but have a back up. I honestly don't even know if I can pull it off, but I do love them. I love how different they are and sexy.

                  I am so excited to hear you will aslo be going to bora bora. Would love to chat about any other ideas you are working on or feedback.

                    I wasn't sure if I wanted a veil... until I put one on with my dress!
                    Now I can't imagine going without.
                    I always pictured flowers in my hair, so will most likely do something with either an orchid or a gerbera daisy, as well.

                      I totally did not want one, but decided to get one just for the ceremony. I actually ended up wearing it almost through the whole reception. And I have to say for the photos it was a really lovely addition. The only thing I would have changed is getting a longer veil for the more dramatic look during our portraits.
