Just wondering, does anyone know when is it okay to take your veil off, before first dance or after first dance, the reason I ask is that my veil is cathedral length and I would be terrified of tripping over it and making a fool of myself... :-8

I took mine off maybe a half hour into the dancing. I thought I'd be a bit tearful but ended up whipping it off on the dance floor and throwing it over to my mother to mind. Oh well :o0

[url] Hi Madhatter.. I have a catherdal veil also, and was going to take mine off when i get back to the hotel after the photographs are finished, before the cake cutting. O:o) [/url]

I might take mine off after the pictures too and i might buy something else to wear in my hair like a bigger tiara or something or else i might not bother.

i was thinking of having a tiara also so there would be something there once the veil was gone but i really was sweating bricks at the idea of tripping on the veil, thanks girls, i think after the photos would be fine, just didn't know the etiquette of when!!!

Hi girls I don't think it really matters to be honest. I left mine on until the late bar and not one comment was passed and to be honest I forgot it was there. It was not a conscious decision but I am delighted now I left it on so long. Enjoy your day - everything else will fall into place. There are enough things to be worrying about. :wv Sun

Ill probably take mine off after the meal and just before the first dance.

i think i will also take my off before the first dance after the meal! Its a pity people dont keep them on all night though but i think it would be very annoying!!!
