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?

 

 

ETA: Ladies-this thread was created out of 7 different threads, some parts might seem out of place-however this is easier to have it all in one thread.

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.

I am undecided in this aswell. I would go to a bridal store and try some on. Take some pictures and see how you feel. I tried some on and felt it kind of took away from my dress.

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!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
