How many of you lovely ladies are going to wear veils? If you’re wearing one, are you having it custom made or just picking one from the store?

    I am wearing one. It’s about 15 feet long. My mom bought it off of Amazon and it’s very nice quality. I wanted something very simple but I have looked on there and they have a bunch to choose from with good reviews and lower priced then any bridal store.

    I am wearing one just for the ceremony. I just picked it from the store. It’s not very long - comes to my lower back. I guess it’s on the more casual side for a veil, since it’s pretty simple and on the short side, but it complements the dress.

    I’m wearing a veil but only for ceremony. It’s elbow length. I plan on putting it on after our first look so there is a small change when I walk down the aisle. It is coming off immediately after the ceremony

    I'm wearing one! It's elbow length and was made to go with the gown. I'll be wearing it for the ceremony, photos, and possibly the first dance before taking it off.

    I wore a cathedral veil the whole night (because it was accidently placed too tight and it would have ruined my hair if I tried to take it out 🤣) I bought the dress at a bridal shop, but didn't like any of the veils there. I found the one at a different bridal shop with very similar beading to my dress! Veils or no veils? 1
    I just threw it over my arm to dance lol

    I highly recommend Blanca Veils. She has her own website and is also on Etsy. Got an incredible veil for way less than any bridal shop ($125). Veils or no veils? 2

    We’re going a first look too, and I am considering doing this for the same reason! But I can’t decide if I want the veil in the first look shots, or have that extra “surprise” touch while walking down the aisle.

    I thought it be a fun change. First look was a must for me. I wanted the private moment where I could see his true reaction. I think adding the veil after makes the aisle part special.

    I opted for no veil. We are having a Hawaiian themed wedding on a beach in Florida (when we set our date we weren't comfortable planning a trip from FL to Hawaii with the covid crazy). Our wedding is only days away (7*14*21). We are having leis flown in & almost everything the bridal party is wearing came from Hawaii. Which includes my dress, the flower girls dress and his shirt (which match but he doesn't know it, yet ~ LOL). I am wearing my hair up with small white polymer flowers. We agreed to not do a first look. I just felt a veil would be problematic in the most likely windy beach setting.

    What’s her Etsy name? Is that the veil that you got from her?? It’s very gorgeous!

    That’s so sweet💕. Definitely gives the term “something borrowed” a new meaning

    I wasn’t about to spend a crazy amount at the store for a veil I was only going to wear for less than a hour! I bought mine off of Amazon for $30. Veils or no veils? 3

    Seconded Blanca Veils (that’s her store name on Etsy). You can also get tulle samples to match the color of your dress before you order.
