Ask Abby: Who lifts my veil?

Bridal Attire from M Bride

Traditionally, the father will lift the veil after walking his daughter down the aisle and giving her away. Another option is to leave the veil over your face during the ceremony and your new husband can lift it to kiss you for the first time as husband and wife.

If you're not as traditional, you can still wear a veil and it's become more common for brides to wear their veil back the entire day. It really just depends on how traditional you want the wedding to be.
