    I think if you go the route of lucky girl with the flower and veil it will be very beautiful!

      When I was trying on dresses I knew I didn't want a big satin/silk traditional gown. Mainly because I am having a beach ceremony and I wanted to look like a beach bride not a church bride. So while trying on dress, which I love dresses, I never got that WOW I am going to be a bride in this dress feeling. UNTIL>>>>>>> They placed a veil on my head. I got butterflies. I almost started crying. The veil changed the whole dress. I literally am not a dramatic person but once the veil went on, I then saw myself as a bride.

      Do the veil. But be prepared with flowers or a beautiful hair piece for when the veil comes off.

        I completely agree! The veil changed the whole look. I love my dress, but when they put the veil on it was complete. AHHHHH I can't wait!

            I only used the veil during the ceremony.

            It was a bit hard to find pics that showed the veil and the flowers really well. Most of the professional pics show the front of me.

            Here is a pic during the ceremony which shows how the small veil tucked under my hair worked really well with the flowers. Also, since the veil was pretty short, it did not fly all around with the breeze.

            And here's a pic from the back.

            Hope this helps you guys out! I saw buy the flowers if you are set on them, and then try it on at home with a small veil see how it looks.
            I really love your flowers for your hair...where did you get them?

              Karla,
              I love your veil and congrats on being able to pull off both veil and flower--it looks great.

              Ladies, I am getting married in a little over a month and I need a veil. I don't want to buy one for $200 so I was wondering if anyone here is selling one. My dress is lacey with a satin sash.
              David's Bridal - Bridal Gowns VW9340 Beaded lace trumpet with godet inserts at skirt hem and charmeuse sash.

              If any of you have a veil for sale that you think might work with the dress, please let me know. (you can send me a PM)

              Mods- Is there anyway you can post this in the main "attire" section? I thought I was tech savy until I found this forum...there are so many tech tricks I have yet to learn.

              Thanks!

                Karla isn't really on much, so hopefully she posted a thread with all her goodies in it. I'll try to search for it.

                Carina- I'd suggest occanseydesigns.com You can custom order and they are super fast. Tons of girls have ordered their veils there- including me. Mine was 60" long with scattered sead beads and I got it for $40 or so.
                Happily married since 2008

                      Now I feel the same way!! A veil was never an option for me before; but now I am considering one.
