Thanks Kelly!

And yours looked PERFECT! It's hard to pull off all three -- tira, flower and veil -- but you did it beautifully!!!

Carly -- I simply cannot wait to see your DIY veil! I considered it but I am ssoo not that DIY inclined!!! I know yours is going to be gorgeous -- it sounds like it is already!!!

It's kinda hard to see in this pictures, but if you look, you can see the scalloped beaded edge extending past the train of my dress.

Here is the veil I'm wearing. It will be my something borrowed. Only, another bride is borrowing it first, so hopefully it makes it safely to me.

I never imagined myself wearing a veil, but I'm definately leaning towards it after trying some on with my dress. My dress is pretty simple and not poufy at all, so I'm going to get a simple veil, to not overpower the dress. I'm going to have my hair in a bun of some sort with a flower, but I'm not sure whether to position the veil over top the bun or underneath it. I'll just have to play around and see I guess.

birdcage veils, flowers, or feathers are so beautiful, unique and edgy to mix things up, and veils are always fun, long ones are great for pics, either way, you usually kiss it goodbye after the ceremony! :)

I wore a fingertip length veil for my wedding, but in retrospect, I almost wish I hadn't. It was an extremely windy day, and the wind was blowing towards my DH during the ceremony... meaning almost all of my wedding pics have my face covered by the veil! I should have thought of it on the wedding day, but didn't. I loved the veil, and it looked very cool in some of the pics, but thought I'd pass my experience on :)

Seriously, I want to wear flowers too. I like your idea Ann ...Thanks.
I am with you!! I am wearing a veil and a flower. My dress is kind of plain though. I didn't have that "AHA" moment until I put the veil on. Then when I put the flower behind my ear when I looked in the mirror I was that beautiful Mexican bride I always envisioned as a little girl.

Even my BM and MOH were wowed. Another thing - when in your ENTIRE life can you get away with wearing a veil? I am wearing mine all night! That moment will never come again! You are only a first time bride once!

I seem to be opposite...kinda want to wear a veil but i'm afraid my dress is a little too much for a beach already so maybe I should leave off the veil so it won't be too much??....and the veils I like most are plain waltz/chapel length..

I am going to wear a veil, because when I was trying dresses on, I never felt like a real bride...until I put a veil on! I already told my sister though, "If that thing is blowing in my face...I am tearing it out and handing it to you!" I'll put it back in for pictures later...but I don't want it ruining ceremony pics!

I am wearing a veil for 2 reasons. I love those pics on the beach with the couple and the wind is blowing the veil back(or someone's hand holding the veil back)and also the ones were both bride and groom are under veil.

I am also honoring my FI jewish traditions of the veil covering the brides face at the beg. of ceremony. My FMIL was kind enough to buy my expensive veil (both back piece and front piece) and my beautiful vintage inspired jewel comb. I am going to wear it as my "something new".
