That stinks! Stupid jerk. :)

I'd suggest some flower clips for other brides. We used them and I loved my BMs so much I stole one and wore it throughout the week. LOL Plus I like to wear all my wedding day accessories occassionally now. It has some nostalgia and I remember the wedding day bliss.

I asked my FI what he thought and he said he didn't care if I had a veil, so that helped my decision! I have long hair, so I am wearing it down, curling it and putting a flower in my hair on one side.

You know it really depends on your personal taste as well as your dress. I think a netted veil is classy and old fashioned. If your dress is real dressy and big I think a traditional, long flowing veil goes great. If your going informal I think a flower goes nicely.

I voted "Flowers only"- i LOVE the romantic yet casual look of flowers...

 

As i mentioned in a previous post :

"I am a second time bride (i was barely 19!) and have a very vivid memory from my first wedding with the cathedral length veil. My flower girl was standing on it and as we stepped forward to light the candle, my head snapped back like a Pez dispenser! It was actually quite funny, and i still laugh about it to this day, but i think it scarred me for life!"

When I started planning I went in thinking I would skip the veil and go for a pretty, tropical flower.

 

But once I started dress shopping, I became a bit wishy-washy. My mom kept telling me I needed veil - so I was going to do both and compromise.

 

Well when my dress came in last week and we were at the salon trying it on... to appease my mom and grandma I tried on a huge variety of veils. (I was thinking something short, light to appease my mom). Well I ended up falling in LOVE with a veil - totally got the whole bride feeling - and realized it defintely completed the look for me.

 

I may bring a flower for the reception or the TTD session though - because they are so cute!

Although I'm a bit nervous about the wind on the beach during the ceremony, putting on the veil when I was dress shopping did it for me. It totally completed the look and feel of what being a bride means to me. I know I won't want to wear it after the ceremony and a few pictures though, so after discussing it with my hairstylist/BM, I've decided to remove the veil and tuck a few flowers in my hair for some more pics and the reception. I feel like its the best of both worlds.

I went in for a dress fitting last week and I tried on a veil just for the heck of it. I got all teary eyed!!

So now I think I am going to wear a veil!

I will take it off after the ceremony and put a flower clip in my hair.

I am having a reception when I get back home, so I may wear the flower or a pretty rhinestone clip in my hair for that.

Hope it isn't too windy in Cancun because my hair will be down AND now I am wearing a veil. I'll just hope for the best.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
