From experience Ive seen many brides say not to the veil and the last min, when the hair is made up, make up on and dressed up on her very special day, she says yes to the veil.
Ive seen may go with out, and its beautiful as well.
The lifting of the veil was often a part of ancient wedding ritual, symbolizing the groom taking possession of the wife, either as lover or as property, or the revelation of the bride by her parents to the groom for his approval. In Judaism, the tradition of wearing a veil dates back to biblical times.
