SPRINGBRIDE

veil or no veil-that is the question

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to incorporate the matching lace with the netting and have it kind of like AnnR's veil was, just off the back and not a full looking veil that covers up your flower? Does that even make sense? I know what I mean but let me see if I can find a pic..

i say wear the veil!! everyone always says that when they put the veil on they 'really feel like a bride' plus when else are you going to wear one?

That dress was one of my first choices! I love it!

 

I love the flower look, just really depends on how formal you want to be. IMO, veils are a little more formal.

This is the only time you will EVER get to wear a veil, that is what made me decide I wanted one, and I was soooo happy with it. I loved my veil and it was lace.

 

Here are some pics, just so you can see what my lace veil looked like.

i love that dress!

i would say get a different veil. a simpler one would look gorgeous with your dress, but i am worried a lace one would take over everything.

but julieg you pulled your lace veil off wonderfully! i normally think they are too much (for me) but yours is great!

that is such a beautiful dress. I all along thought that I wouldn't wear a veil, that it would get in the way etc... But seeing other girls pictures, I love the look and it is the only time I will wear it, so I say go for it, if that is what you want, it is your day

I am actually using AnnR's hairstyle. I love how you can see the flowers inderneath her veil. The problem is that the lace is really heavy, and has a lot of detailing. We put my flowers underneath 1 layer, and you could hardly see it. So, if I go that route, you won't see the flowers until after I take off my veil.

I will have to post a pic of the lace. I love how yours looks, but the lace I have has a lot of detail all over. It is hard to describe. FI has the camera. I will try to get a pic and post it when he gets home later tonight.

Thanks for the pics!!!

Wearing a veil is a personal preference and I originally thought I wasn't going to wear one, UNTIL i actually put one on and it was like WOW. It just completed the look to me. Oh and I LOVE your dress! So awesome. My dress is similar in that it is slimfitting and there is intricate beading and lace on the dress and I found that the simple cathedral veil is what complimented it most. It didn't over power the dress, so perhaps you could change the material and still use flowers. For me, I am a nervous person and I need something in my hands. Not sure if I will use flowers or a parasol for me as well, but I KNOW I will need something keeping my nervous hands busy during the ceremony...
