        I know these photos are up on the forum elsewhere already, but here they are again for veil-posting purposes!

        Here is my ceremony gown (Sottero & Midgley RSM1038 ) and the single-tier cathedral veil with no embellishments:

        And here is the original gown I bought at David's Bridal (style T8792) with matching 2-tier, fingertip length, satin ribbon-edge veil that I'll be wearing for my AHR:

        I think anyone who is undecided as to whether or not to wear a veil, just consider this -- it is the only time in your life when you can wear one and not look silly, so I say go for it!!!

        In my opinion, nothing says "Here comes the BRIDE!" more that a beautiful girl, in a gorgeous gown, finished with a fabulous veil....
        To the OP--they both look great.

        Christie...wanted to thank you for amazing presence here. I hope (well I know) your FI really loves and cherishes the awesome person you are--because you just seem like that one person that is always in your corner. I wish there were more people like you :) Thanks for your kind words to all of us crazy brides on here.

          I absolutely LOVE this veil...

          the "straps" on my dress have a ton of bead detail so I want a very sheer veil, I also really want a antique looking broach clip at the top of the veil and I think this would work perfectly. Plus its only 23 bucks!

          The only thing I worry about is whether it will match my dress. But for 23 bucks I guess if it doesn't I haven't wasted that much.

            Future Ms Kt Ellis - I love that veil I think it will look nice with the beaded straps. I'm sure you could sell it on here if you didn't like it!! Also you could use it for your ttd if you wanted to!

              Here's mine from an ebay seller (Venus Veils) (probably not how i'm wearing my hair) Best of all it was only $16 with shipping!! Headband not included.

                i vote for #2

                kjt1985, I love your veil, very romantic!!

                to all the ladies: I really want a veil b/c like you've all said, it's the only time we get to wear one. I know for a fact that the location we chose for the ceremony is super windy. Are any of you securing your veil so it doesn't blow around, i.e pinning it to the dress or weighing it down or something? any concerns about this?

                  Yup, it's a concern. I'm just going to try and wear it low or more on the back of my head and hopefully the wind is blowing in the right direction to keep it behind me. Haha. Securing it to the dress is a really good idea though. Maybe somebody could put a small stitch in after you're dressed. Or get some clear double sided tape?

                    Ok....so I know I'm going slightly off topic, but I just wanted to say that I am so sorry that I am just seeing your post from October, but I had to tell you that that has to be one of the SWEETEST things that ANYONE (including my dear FI!) has ever said to, or about me! You're gonna get me tearing up here at work, girl! I love BDW and all of the great women like you that I have had the honor to meet through this incredible forum!!!

                    Thank you so much -- all right, now back to the veil posting fun!

                      I thought about a veil but I really don't want to deal with it blowing in the wind by the beach so I'm sticking with a flower.
