    Did any other brides have a hard time making this decision?  Did you wear a veil to your wedding?  Would a veil look weird since my hair is short?  I've never even tried one on...

    Maybe a birdcage veil since your hair is short. I think with a long veil it might detract from your hair which frames your face. In the end, its up to you. I wanted the veil because it made me feel more bridal lol

      Tink! Wear the veil for the trash the dress! I think it looks totally sexy when its wet and against the brides skin. You could always take a few pics with it and then take it off for the rest of the shots. I have seen some gorgeous TTD photos with veils.

        To veil for me! All the way lol. I'm having a cathedral length because I had my heart set on a ball gown, even though I ended up disliking every ball gown I tried on. I ended up with a mermaid and loved it but felt it was missing something. When the consultant put the veil on me I was sold. I am getting married inside the church so its fine. I might take it off for the reception since it will be on the beach. I haven't purchased but the veil, but where I purchased my gown, they have veil trunk shows where you can try on your dress and try different veils so I'm looking forward to that.

          I've seen pictures of updo's with a white flower on the side and the veil poking through at the bottom-mid level of the updo so you can still see the flower. It looks really good together, so you could try having both! But if the flower is easy enough to put on in between the ceremony and reception, then its definitely a fun wardrobe change to surprise your guests with!

            I never saw myself as a veil person, which is good because FI laughed when I mentioned one.  I am more of a big flower or bow in the hair type.  I played around with the idea of a birdcage/fascinator and I don't think I will do that either.  These all look amazing though...Once it gets closer, who knows...I might just change my mind.

              A special thank you to those that mentioned the windiness of beach weddings and suggested a waltz length veil.  I purchased mine on lightinthbox.com. It came just as a piece of fabric and I had to sew my own comb on, but I love the way that it looked in pictures.  It was definitely windy, and there were a couple of moments that it got a little out of control, but man, does it ever look pretty in pictures:

                  I was against a veil at first until they made me try one on, and I have to admit I felt more like a bride once I had it on. My mom has been pushing hard for me to wear one so I've decided on a finger tip length.

                    A veil really can make a good prop for some lovely wedding photos...
