If you are anything like me, you LOVE the idea of wearing a wedding veil!! You are SO excited to put it on but if you are doing a first look, you actually might want to wait before putting it on! There are a couple of reasons why:
- You get to wow your groom with a second look! He has already seen your dress, hair, and makeup, but he hasn’t seen that one beautiful piece that helps tie it all together! This is a great way to still give him a little surprise as you come down the aisle.
- Your veil won’t get pulled out in the excitement! Sometimes the groom just gets so excited he wraps you up in a big hug and may accidentally pull your veil out. You may as well avoid this accident and just add it in afterwards.
If you aren’t doing a first look then I recommend putting the veil on towards the end of getting ready, this way it doesn’t get in the way while you add the other final touches. If you want 100% of your portraits to have your veil on, we can totally do that! You also have the option of wearing your veil for all of your formal pictures and then the last 10 minutes of your Bride & Groom portrait time, we can take your veil out and get you some without the veil for a little more variety.
Often, most brides will take their wedding veil off during the reception just to make it easier to move around. I highly recommend putting it back in when we sneak out for those sunset portraits because the light is just so dreamy when it hits the nice flowy veil!
