A bridal veil is an excellent accessory, and one that can make you feel even more special on your wedding day. It’s something that you don’t get to wear on any other day of your life. If you’ve chosen the style of veil you want, you might still have questions about how to wear it and when to take it off.
Depending on what style you’ve chosen, you might have the ability to wear your veil over your face. This is a traditional choice, with the lifting of the veil becoming a part of your wedding ceremony. In general, if you’re wearing your veil like this, it will be lifted at one of two points. It can be lifted by your father when he gives you away, or by your groom at the end of the ceremony when it’s time for the first kiss.
Of course, many styles do not need to be worn over the face, and can be a beautiful accessory. Some styles can be worn throughout the ceremony and reception. If you do want to remove your veil, the best times for this are after the ceremony (and any photos) or after the first dance. In either case, it is traditional to leave the veil as a decoration on your chair at the top table. You can also have a bridesmaid take it up to your bridal suite if you’re worried about damage, though!
