Commenting on the 'emotional' side of things-- I married 20 years ago, and my mom and I had a miniature debate about wearing a veil. She wasn't insistent or pushy, but had to come to terms with the fact that attitudes change over time.
In her experience, a veil was supposed to be worn over the face, and lifted at some point in the ceremony, by the bride's father or the groom (I don't remember which). It was supposed to symbolize purity or virginity. A bride who was marrying for the second time, or had a child, or was somehow known to not be a virgin was absolutely not supposed to wear a veil over her face-- to the point that some clergy would not even allow it. As a result, a bride *not* wearing a veil over her face would certainly raise some eyebrows as people would surely wonder about her past.
So at some point in the wedding preparations, I was trying on my veil (which I made), and she realized that it was not designed to go in front of my face at all, she reacted out of her own experience from 30 years earlier in a more conservative setting and had to get over the 'scandalous' idea of it.
