Hey, y'all! I have a question.
When wearing a blusher should the dad (in my case, my uncle) lift the veil when he "gives" the bride to the groom or should the groom lift it before kissing the bride? I've seen it done both ways, but I'm not sure which is appropriate or if it matters. I'm inclined to say I want my groom to do it, but if you do that, how does your dad kiss your cheek when he gives you away. Has anyone seen a way that worked?

When my sister got married, my dad lifted the blusher just high enough to kiss her cheek, and then put it back down.

It's acceptible to do it at either point, or so I've read. (I'm not doing the blusher at all - I want to be able to clearly see everything that's going on! :)

At my wedding my brother who walked me down the aisle lifted my veil right after giving me away. I originally wanted my groom to do it but the coordinator said because we were lighting the unity candle, it was too risky to keep the blusher on. She said if by chance it caught fire, it would obviously go up in flames in a split second. In other words, the veil would have to stay on through the service until the end when your groom kisses you. If you're having the unity candle, you might want to check with your coordinator. I think it is much more romantic to have the groom lift it though.

I turned my daughter's veil back and kissed her cheek. When I sat down I noticed that I had left it turned up in the back. Her mother and her aunt are both designers. Five years later I am still hearing about it. But I still like having the person giving you away turn it back. I think it symbolizes the "giving away".
