veil or no veil-that is the question

Recommended Posts

What's everyone doing with regards to a veil. I have to wear my hair up due to humidity and texture of hair but I'm undecided on a veil.

I would love to have flowers in my hair but I would also love to have a veil.

I'm afraid both would be too much.

 

Any suggestions?

I'm not planning on wearing one. I did however get some really pretty hair screws to go into my hair for the wedding. I also didn't think I would feel like a bride without a veil, but the dress was enough for me. I think a flower would also be really pretty.

If you want both then I would do a veil for the ceremony and then have the flowers placed in my hair for the reception. Just see if you have a friend who is good with hair that can place your flowers in for you.

I'm in the same boat as you. I want a flower in my hair and am still deciding about the veil. I plan on making my decision when I go for my fitting in a couple of weeks. If I wear a veil, this will be my something borrowed from my sister. I don't want to spend money on it.

When I was planning out what to wear, I debated about the veil, since I had already chosen the flowers for my hair. I took the flowers into the bridal salon when I got my dress and one of the ladies working there brought over a veil and stuck it underneath my makeshift bun. It ended up looking really nice.

I only used the veil during the ceremony.

 

It was a bit hard to find pics that showed the veil and the flowers really well. Most of the professional pics show the front of me.

 

Here is a pic during the ceremony which shows how the small veil tucked under my hair worked really well with the flowers. Also, since the veil was pretty short, it did not fly all around with the breeze.

Hope this helps you guys out! I saw buy the flowers if you are set on them, and then try it on at home with a small veil see how it looks.

I also went without a veil, but I am not really a veil kind of girl. I also didn't wear white shoes/diamond earrings/etc. I was glad I put a flower in my hair at the last minute. It would have been boring without it!

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
