    I agree with everyone who said that their veil makes them "feel more like a bride". I was concerned about wind, too, so I will be having my ceremony further away from the water at a gazebo, so that I am not fighting the veil during the entire ceremony! (Nothing says "I love you, honey!" than by being preoccupied by your rogue veil whipping about your face during your vows, huh?!)

    When I change into my 2nd dress for the reception, I will lose the veil and be doing a flower in my hair, so I'll have a little bit of both worlds!

      I am not wearing a veil. This is my 2nd marriage and I did for the first. I will be wearing my hair up probably with flower and some sort of sparkly starfish.

        No veil for me. I will only be wearing a flower in my hair.

            After going dress shopping this weekend; I plan on wearing a veil and a tiara. It completed the "look".

              petals i love that look! And I just saw that you are getting married in two days, yay!!

              I think I am going to go no veil. I do love the look of the veil. And I love the veil flying in the wind in pictures but I just don't want to spend a couple hundred dollars on something I would only wear for an hour. I would rather splurge on my purse or shoes or something. Maybe thats dumb?! So no veil it is (for now!) :)

                My vote is for a new purse and shoes

                I'm going with no veil or flowers. I considered the veil but I didn't think it looked right with my dress. Flowers are a no because I would blue, and there are very few true blue (not purple-ish) flowers.

                  Veils look very good on pictures. If you already have one, you can still bring it with you and use it for maybe a TTD session. Long veil + wind=instant good photo :)

                    I'm still trying to decide. I love veils. I love the birdcage kind especially. but i'm wearing my hair down, so I don't know if a birdcage veil would work with that style.

                      I actually ended up ordering a birdcage veil and got it in the mail yesterday. You can pretty much wear one with any hair style. I ordered it from Birdcage Veil - Birdcage Veils. If you go on their site you can check out the photo gallery and get an idea of how it would look with different hair styles!
