    I knew for sure I was wearing a flower - but I was undecided with the veil. At the last minute I borrowed my friends veil just to have it with me in case I wanted it and I'm so glad that I did!! Like someone earlier said, it really made me feel like a bride! It was the best last minute decision I made!

    So, maybe have it as an option "just in case"!!

      Veil and hair flower. At first I didn't want a veil because I thought they were too traditional for me so was just gonna go with the flower. But I've decided to wear my hair back and I'll have the flower sort of off to the side a bit and I have a really long, flowy veil (I think it's chiffon) that I'll wear low at the nape of my neck. I plan to lose it for the reception though.

        No veil for me! The beach can get windy and with my very fine hair I can see it ending up in the sea! Plus my dress has a really pretty back, so I don't really want anything to cover it.
        I'm just going to go with flowers and maybe some of those really cute diamond hair clips!

          I just think it depends on what you really want. To me with doing a destination wedding all the traditions are out the door. So if you want to do a veil then do it!! if not, get a flower or the birdcage veil. I didn't want to do the veil but I think I will only for my MIL. but i'm still gonna have my flower.

              I am not wearing one. It will be to hot and probably annoying to add another layer of something on my body.

                I am still undecided -- I go back and forth about wearing a veil. I never really wanted to, but now that I am getting closer, I do feel that it will complete the "bride"look. That being said, I can't bring myself to spend a lot of money on somethign I'm not 100% about!! bahh.

                  VEIL!!!! I was not going to do one but my BFF told me it was a big regret of her not wearing one in her wedding. It is the only day of your life you will be able to wear one and it really does make you feel like a bride!!! (I did both a tiara and veil).

                    I am actually doing 2 veils and a tiara! Both veils are very thin and only one layer each. One veil is a cathedral length and I always wanted one so I put it on and I couldn’t say no. The second goes to my finger tips and had a gold embroidery that matches my dress so I didn’t want to say no to that one either. And I feel in love with the tiara. The tiara is small and not very big so it doesn’t look like too much on me and the veils actually look like one piece instead of two.

                    For the wind issue (which I heard Aruba has a lot of) I am getting that Hollywood wedding tape and taping the veil to me so it doesn’t blow around and stays where it should while I am wearing it. It is only staying on for the ceremony and half the pictures, but I don’t want to play around with it. I am only going to wear the tiara all night.
