When Should I take Off My Veil at My Wedding?

This is a really common question, but it’s often one that brides never think about until the day of their wedding! So I am here to help you ladies out, and advise you into some of the options that my brides of done, to showcase their beautiful veil.

1. If you do a First Look…

If you and your groom decide to do a First Look, I would suggest NOT wearing the veil. You will get plenty of images without it (for variety) and then when you walk down the aisle, you can put the veil on for something new, so your groom still has that special moment of seeing his bride walk towards him.

2. If You Skip the First Look and Go Straight to the Ceremony

Have your hair stylist put your veil in, so that she can properly tuck it into your hair style. You will be ready to go by your ceremony and will rock that extra “bridal” style by having it for the ceremony.

Places to Always Wear Your Veil:

  • ceremony
  • family formal pictures
  • bridal party
  • bride/groom portraits

Places to Not Wear Your Veil:

  • Getting ready
  • First Look
  • Cocktail Hour
  • Reception
  • First dances
  • Sunset Pictures
