    Same here! Especially since my dress is a mermaid. I did not think I would choose such a form fitting gown and before I did- I expressed reluctance and the consultant put a veil on me right away. The veil completed the look for me. I will be wearing a cathedral length veil. Not common for destination weddings lol I know! But we are getting married in a church so I think it will work fine. I will take it off for the reception. After a few pics of course! haha. I looooove veils. I always have.

    Happily married to the love of my life- since July 5, 2013

      I'll definitely wear a veil! But my veil would be a simple sheer and not that long. 

      Resembles the 6th pic Playalovesme posted, minus the few studs. (Thanks Playalovesme!)  Before I was thinking not to. Actually, I think I look good wearing one or not as I'll be having an updo and will wear a hair comb. But I prefer to wear one. Perhaps without wearing a veil, my wedding get up wouldn't be complete.

        yup, i just decided to add in a veil.  i have 2 options... get my mom to make me a really really simple one (i only really want it because i think it'll be fun in pictures) and now a friend just offered me hers.  A little stressed to borrow one though because she plans to pass it along to her daughter... that might be too much responsibility!!

                    The verdict is in. Veil was awesome for photos, but it was a pain for the ceremony. Fell out 3 times and our wc kept putting it back. I finally tucked it under my arm and took it off as soon as the ceremony was done.
