SPRINGBRIDE

veil or no veil-that is the question

Recommended Posts

I'm debating that same issue right now. I bought one just in case. When I saw a wedding last year at Dreams Cancun, one thing that stood out for me was the veil that kept smacking the bride in the face (it's breezy back there and your back is to the ocean, facing your guests). The next day I ran into the bride on the beach and she said it was a major pain.

I don't think I am....I did at my first wedding. But, that was also in a Catholic church. I don't think the veil made me feel more "bridal" at all.

 

I have seen some very beautiful pictures ruined because the veil was in the bride's face. I think it's going to be too windy.

 

Oh, I don't know...maybe I will change my mind once I find a dress I like. I am so indecisive these days.

Hey Susan,

 

After reading Amy's recent review about not wearing a veil because it was windy at the Dreams Cancun gazebo, I wondered what I would do because I do want to wear a veil...

 

I just came across this little tidbit:

 

Prevent Fly-aways

Secure tiny weights to your veil to prevent it from blowing in the breeze.

Fishing weights are a great option because of their small size and you can spray-paint them to match your attire.

 

So I think I will try that and maybe remove them for pictures so it can blow around.

Paula, I have been thinking about the same thing and didn't know what to do because I really want to wear one too! I'm going to have to try this!

I think it is a personal choice. I actually wanted to wear a veil at first but when I found my dress and pictured where I was getting married I felt a veil would take away from my dress so I opted out.

I definately think to veil or not to veil is up to the bride. My stepmom in law and one of my friends did not wear veils and they absolutely looked beautiful and bridal. I went back and forth about the veil as I was having an informal beach wedding. But I went with a very simple fingertip length blusher veil ($20 at Davids) because I knew my hubby would appreciate it and it made me feel oh so bridal. But thats me. It was a bit of a pain in the neck on the beach. It constantly blew in my face. Jay and i had to switch places during the ceremony and during pics due to it but I loved how I looked and it was great for pics. Keep in mind there are all sorts of styles and lengths of veils. So try a few but go with what you like. Don't get fenced in by whats too formal or not. Its your day, if you want cathedral length, go for it!!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
