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 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! I just threw it over my arm to dance lol

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.
