To wear or not to wear a veil....help pls.

Recommended Posts

Goregous dress. Its such a personal decision, its really hard to say. I like a Veil but I like them a little on the plain side with small tasteful detail on the bottom. I hope this helps! Best of luck!

Thank you!!!
I love this dress too! This is the second dress i got. The first one was also a maggie soterro dress...but it was way to big and lacy for the beach!
This one was better, lighter and dare I say...sexier!!! LOL

I got this dress in Ivory. I just hope that it looks just as good as the Silver Haze!!!
I love all of Maggie's dresses, so im sure I will love it!

I am still debating too. I found this site: WeddingVeil.com Veil Options/Styles - edgings, accents, widths, colors and the veils are very reasonable. They are out of CA. I sent them a picture of my dress, then Susan (the lady at the store) had me call her and gave me suggestions to look at. Very nice and professional. A good option if you don't want to spend a lot!

Thanks in advance!
I would definately wear the veil. Unless your planning on wearing your hair all down like the girl in your pic.
I agree, a veil is soposed to make the ideal bride, this whole modern thing and NOT wearing the veil is becoming really popular though. ??!!

I think the dress would go just fine with a veil - something simple - but you could pull it off! It sounds like your FI has been imagining what his wedding day will look like too! That's so great! You could always wear it for the ceremony and some pictures & then take out the veil for the rest of pictures & the reception. Also, you could always attempt to make a veil as a DIY project to save money - or, there's always Craigslist.com, or ebay! Good Luck!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
