    I'm going for the cathedral length and a blusher but only for the ceremony. My mom said it'd make for great pictures and it really completed the look.
    I haven't bought one yet because I can't justify spending EVEN MORE MONEY on something I'm only going to have on for 30 minutes!

      I think this really depends on what you prefer. I didn't wnat a veil mainly because I knew we were getting married by the beach & it's windy so I didn't want to fuss with it the entire ceremony...I was so glad I made this decision but I also think it's how you vision yourself.

        I'm going with a veil and a hair flower. I'm going to take off the veil after the ceremony and just have the flower in my hair for the reception.

          I went with a ribbon and hair flowers. The ribbon hanged down my back and blew in the wind... veil like, without all the veil!

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.
            I LOVE HOLLYWOOD TAPE!!!!! It is the BEST STUFF EVER!!!! I thought about doing this as well!!! Let us know how it turns out!!!!

              I got my veil on etsy, very reesonable!!!! I could justify spending the $150 that my bridal salon wanted for the veil I wanted. I found my Fingertip veil for $21 after shipping. I'm only wearing it for the ceremony and a few pictures.
              Here is the link to a cathedral length veil from my seller :) .... Only $24!!!

                I definitely will!! I used it during NYE when I was a bridesmaid and it kept the dress in place nicely.

                  Roxqt -- does your seller on etsy have more? That is the price I want to spend, but I haven't found anythign anywhere! with just under a month to go (until we leave) I'm getting nervous and would love to find one!!

                      I just bought THIS one on ETSY... it'll take care of my blusher too and it was only 31.98 after shipping!

                      That means I paid less than $1 for each minute I'll probably have it on!!
