will my veil fly?


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if my chapel length veil is going to fly up in the air while I walk down the isle? we are having our wedding on the beach and I'm concerned a sea breeze may gust and blow my veil up in crazy directions while I walk down the isle and during the ceremony. Any previous brides who had an outside wedding with a long chapel length veil have any of these kinds of problems? Or is the veil heavy enough to with stand? i keep imagining myself walking down the isle and my veil blowing in my guests' faces!! smile120.gif

Funny now but not then.

 

I may just get a birdcage type veil if it's definitely a possibility.

I don't know from experience, but I would think a chapel length has enough fabric to weigh itself down, but you could always use some clear double-sided tape to attach it to your dress in a couple of key spots, or even some loose tack-stitches in a thread that matches your dress and veil. Hope those ideas help---?

It was very windy where I got married (on the beach) and my veil was blowing around. It looks awesome in some pics and it bugged me a little bit, but not enough for me to wish I did not wear my beautiful veil. So, I think you should go for it, it would not be that bad even if it did blow around.

I wore a blusher length veil and boy did it blow around. We had to switch places during the ceremony so it didn't keep flying in my face. But I'm glad I wore it because it looked wonderful in the pics and made me feel like a bride. A longer veil should have enough weight to stay in place. So you should be ok.
