It is not even a question weather you should wear a veil or not? Of course you should wear a veil! Veils are a tradition! They go with the wedding dress! It is part of the entire look to have a veil for your wedding! We know you are not use to it, you think it looks silly....BUT IT DOESN'T!!! It is like Peas and Carrots, socks and shoes, earrings and a necklace. It goes together to match the dress, and frame your face in your wedding pictures. Usually the dress has some volume and when you don't add the veil it looks unfinished, it has to balance! So when you order your dress definitely pick a veil that matches so you will have it when your dress arrives.
Traditionally brides wear a veil because back in Roman times brides were covered from head to toe in a massive veil. It was to save the couple from evil spirits coming to the ceremony to curse them.
