Q: I would love to wear a cathedral-length veil for my wedding, but does it really have to be carried by pages? Can't I simply let it trail behind me?

A: You don't need a crew to carry your veil. Just be sure to have someone—your maid of honor, dad, or wedding consultant—arrange it behind you before you head down the aisle. To ensure that your veil doesn't get dirty, have an aisle runner put in place before the processional.
