SPRINGBRIDE

veil or no veil-that is the question

Recommended Posts

The way I look at it...when else in your life will you ever be able to wear a veil? I don't want to look back and wish I would have done it. I think it really makes me feel like a bride....not just a girl in a pretty white dress. I will probably only have it on for the ceremony and some of the pics. If you are even half-way thinking of wearing one, you should! You can always take it off if it bothers you. Plus....with that beautiful long hair of yours.....GORGEOUS! cheer2.gif

wait, you mean i don't get to wear it every day after the wedding!?!?!smile41.gif i was banking on that, lol.

i'm going to wear one that comes down to my wrists and a tiara...if the veil sucks, i'll pull it out...

my mom asked a good question - does anyone wear it over their face? i wasn't planning on it....

I loved wearing my veil - I ended up taking it off after dinner for the dancing & party but it really made me feel like a bride when I had it on.

I'm trying to decide this too. I bought a cheap one at the craft store today just to take home & try on with my dress. I'm still unsure, but my mom liked it. I definitly want a flower, so if I have a veil I'll have both. I might just wear the veil for the ceremony & take it off afterwards.

IMO I think you need to actually try on the veil with your dress which may be hard if your dress is being ordered in. i know my veil kind of takes away from the lacing in the back. I think I'll be a last minute decider.

 

great tip Paula, would have never thought that if you didn't post it. THX!

I planned on a veil, but no flower, but I've found a flower I love, so I think I will do both as well.

 

I'm very interested in knowing how the fishing weights work for any of you ladies to keep the veil from blowing!!

I love this veil!! It's so pretty...I want to have a tropical flower in my hair, and possibly a veil, but I'm still not sure about it...

I ordered the lace that matches my dress to make a veil. It is really heavy though, and it is a little to catherdral looking for a beach wedding. (I was originally going to have a traditional wedding. Now I need to decide whether or not to have a netted veil w/ flowers inderneath, or just no veil at all. I need some help deciding. My hairclip will be a red gerbera daidy with a lime green rose bud on each side. Here is the picture of my dress.

    • 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
