Does a bride have to wear a veil under the Chuppa, if she is wearing a strapless wedding gown?

If the bride feels the need to show off her upper torso while under the Chuppa, does it really make a difference if she wears a veil? After all, it would be less offensive to show her face.

I, for one, would never officiate if the bride or groom weren't properly attired. Forgetting that they are standing before family and friends, they are still standing in front of G-D.
