WHAT TO DO AFTER THE VEIL
At one point or another brides typically remove the veil. Usually after the ceremony or after cocktail hour and all formal shots have been taken. Have your bridesmaids help you to remove it so your hairstyle stays in place.

LET IT BREATHE
Allow your veil to breathe overnight to prevent wrinkles! Worst case, steam it in the morning.
