    I am undecided but I dont want to look back after the wedding and regret not having one at all sooo...I am buying one on ebay for 15 bucks and taking pictures with it so I can sort of have a veil.

      I am having a veil dilemma. I never planned on wearing a veil. When I first went dress shopping I didn't even think to try one on. But the consulatant came over after I had found my dress and stuck a veil on my head. My friends all agreed I had to wear a veil. My best friend got married last year and her mother made her veil for the wedding. It is a really beautiful veil. She said that if I decided I wanted to wear a veil I was welcome to borrow it. Well since then I have tried it on with my dress and I admit it looks great. But I still go back and forth in my mind whether or not I want to wear a veil. I would be happy with a pretty flower in my hair. But for some reason everytime I mention not wearing a veil I seem to offend someone! At this point I don't know what to do. Do I wear the veil to avoid hurting someone's feelings and take it off after the ceremony? Or do I just go the hair flower route?

        ACH2009, Since your friend has offered her veil and you like it, I'd say bring it with you and it could be your 'something borrowed'.

        I wasn't initially planning on a veil either but my FH really wants me to wear one, cute huh?. Also, after looking at wedding pics I've found I love the dramatic look of a long veil blowing in the wind. So... I picked one up on ebay for $30 :)

          Thanks for the advice...that's kind of what I was thinking. Bring the veil along and see what happens.
          You got a great deal on your veil. It's crazy how much those things can cost!

            I chose other - I'm planning to wear my hair down with just the top up in a beaded comb. I tried it when I tried my dress and it looked awesome.

              What a great idea! I have been debating how to wear both the veil and the flower in my hair, and you really made it work beautifully!

              I mean, when else in your life do you get to wear:
              A). A diamond tiara
              B). A veil

              A girl's gotta take advantage of these princess opportunities!!

                I'm probably doing a short russian-style birdcage veil with a flower on it. There are lots of cute ones on Etsy. That way you get the best of both worlds.

                  I had a bridal consultant show me a different way of doing my veil so I could have both my hair flower and my veil on during the ceremony. She put the veil under my updo (rather my notted ponytail) so that it still flowed beautifully but you could still see all my hair and the hair flower. I was originally going to put the hair flower in my hair after the ceremony but I really wanted to have both. And this way still looks really pretty and I get to have both!

                    I never thought that I would want a veil but when I picked out my dress the sales associate put a chapel length one on me and it looked amazing! I am now a veil convert, lol.

                      I have been to Cancun so many times and it is always sooo windy. So I deceided NO veil. Well I just ordered my dress and seeing it with the veil on, guess what I got the veil. I am not going to wear it for the ceremony, but I will wear it for photos.
