    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!!
    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 at our ocean ceremony in Cabo.. that's partially why I chose no veil at all.. My dress was semi-long and wouldn't stay straight walking down the aisle and my poor MOH kept trying to straighten it.

          I had a chapel length veil and it was moderately windy on my wedding day. I didn't have any problems with it flying crazy....It was actually quite a chore trying to get the wind to catch it for a photo (in my before the ceremony pictures).

                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.
