veil or no veil-that is the question

Recommended Posts

I haven't decided either. I wanted a veil but then decided I didn't because of the wind and I didn't want to cover the back of my dress. Now I am thinking that I will decide after I get my dress.

I'm having a veil. The length will depend on the dress I get.

 

I love the long cathedral veils but I dont want to overpower my dress.

 

I don't know what dress I am getting yet, so once the dress is decided then I will look at veils

 

I'm going to have small roses weaved into my hair

I wasn't planning on wearing one, then my friend suggested I wear hers and it was perfect. I took it off for the reception and just had flowers on my hair.

I'm going to wear a veil. I had ordered a headband to go with it but when it came in the mail it totally did not match. I was disappointed but decided I'd rather my veil over the headband any day. Also, I planned on initially wearing the veil up under a bun in my head, and have decided since to wear my hair half-up, with the veil higher on my head.

sigh. the things we change!

I tried on a cathedral length mantilla with my dress and totally fell in love! Our ceremony will be in the Catholic Church in San Jose del Cabo, so I think its pretty appropriate to the setting. I haven't bought a veil yet. I'm waiting for my dress to come in first. I ordered the dress back in December'07 but it was going to take about 6-7 months to be made in the material I choose, so technically, I haven't even seen my actual final product...ugh I'm getting nervous now. I think veils are fun though, and when else will you get to wear one!?

I went with a veil and flower combo. Here's some pics for the ladies that need visuals. :)

I totally loved the combo. I'm so glad I decided on a veil in the end. At first, I planned on just a flower.

I wore a veil for the church ceremony and then I was going to take it off and wear flowers for the sand ceremony. However, my florist showed up late and didn't bring half the flowers that he was supposed to including my hair flower (which were going to be orchids). But I really loved how my veil fluttered through the wind. I still would have loved to wear flowers for the reception though. I will be sure to do that for my AHR.

That's a good question! I am still deciding too on what to wear......Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm........I am have curly hair in the humidity so I'm thinking a flower only might work the best, BUT if we can manage a vail somehow I think it would be gorgous....
