As most traditional practices go, when it comes to wedding attire and protocol, whether to veil or not to veil is the question. Whether you are a traditionalist or prefer the contemporary approach, veils are not a wedding necessity.
Should you choose to adorn your head and add to the mystique for your groom, veils both long or short are viable options.
The decision is 100% a choice of preference and there's always the option to go without, and show off your gorgeous, freshly styled locks.
Trends lately, lean towards the no veil option and there are some beautiful and modern alternatives to veils available.
No longer do you have to be a princess to don a tiara, find one that compliments your wedding hairstyle,
or, a gorgeous flower to add some elegance to your tresses.
Serving a dual purpose of holding down flyaways, (especially if your nuptials are outdoors) and adding some gorgeous shimmer to your look, headbands can also be used as a veil alternative to dress up your hair.
Veils are not a wedding necessity. Like most wedding components, they're a matter of personal preference.
Before your big day, try some veil alternatives and see which look you prefer.

Picking my wedding dress from Best for Bride was completely painless. I was a little discouraged at first and wasn't loving the dress. Everyone wanted me to choose when the sales associate Natalia asked me if I had tried on a certain dress. When I responded "no", she told me to try it on and that it was going to be my dress. She was right!! I was crying before I left the changeroom, and once my mom and wedding party saw it and started crying I knew I had found the dress. I kept losing weight leading up until the wedding and alterations was great, fitting the dress exactly how I wanted it. When I walked down the aisle and my husband started to cry I knew then just how perfect the dress was. Thank you so much for making me feel like a princess on my wedding day!!!!
I want to thank everyone from Best for Bride who helped me during the hectic planning of my wedding. Everything went off perfectly, and a lot of it had to do with the help of everyone there.
I was worried about getting decor done at an affordable price, but when roaming around on the BFB website, I saw that it was offered. I showed up to the church and was amazed with the aisle drapery! Then showing up at the reception and seeing the head table - it was perfect. Thank you so much.
A special thank you to a couple of ladies:
Melloney - Thank you for being so supportive and assuring me that my dress would be perfect for the wedding. Thanks for not thinking I was a crazy lady when I bawled my eyes out in the change room!
Larissa - You're amazing. I would have been a wreck if I had not had you to help me with all of my dress woes. I've sent you another note of thanks. I hope that you can help me with the bridesmaid dress I will need in September 2011.
Again, thank you to everyone at Best for Bride. I'm sending a couple of pictures from my wedding on October 2, 2010.
Thank you for making my wedding day such a fantastic experience. When the first dress I purchased didn't work out (3 weeks before my wedding!), the seamstress Laryssa took me under her wing. When she was aware of my previous mishap and rendered it 'unfixable', she personally took me upstairs and recommended a new dress. She instilled confidence in me about the choice and went above and beyond to ensure that the new dress would be tailored and ready to go in record time. Linda was also extremely helpful acting as a cheerleader and helping to co-ordinate logistics. On the wedding day, I couldn't believe the number of compliments about the dress and I am so thrilled with the way it turned out. My day was made perfect through the hard-working and accomodating staff at the Etobicoke Best for Bride, and in particular, Laryssa & Linda.

We came in today because I'm gonna panic because I'm gonna marry in two weeks and I absolutely hated my dress so I just mentioned a few things what I wanted and she pulled, the first dress that she pulled I put on and I loved it fits in and out in and out in literally in 25 minutes steaming it all. Yeah
Awesome, thank you ladies.
I just wanted to say that my family and I have been SO PLEASED with the service that best for bride provided for us. They were gracious and prompt, quicker than we thought they would be and the shoes are beautiful that we got and we can't say enough good things about them.
