      Beautiful!!! Can you find a veil that is the same color and the tulle on the back of the dress?

          Thanks ladies!!! It is a relief since I had myself a deadline of 7 months before the wedding to have it ordered.
          I went in on Saturday, but could not decide between the two. The other had crinoline and a fairly large beaded train I was not crazy about.
          It had the V in front and in the back, but not as deep. Same designer.

          Ann, mlb36 & Court, thanks for your honesty... I knew I could count on you ladies. I think it is that it is hanging there, not poofed out, but without my hair being 'bigger' that is probably what it will do. Nothing.

          I am going to try and cancel it. I am looking at the site where Ann had hers made.

          I know it may be windy at the Dreams gazebo, but I do feel like I need a veil, it made me feel like a bride.

          Do I need a shorter one? I think we established it definitely should be lighter in colour.

            honestly, if YOU love it though, that's what matters! you sounded like you didn't though ...

            i got mine longer (to about my knees, maybe) and 1 later, not very much fabric because i didn't want it to block the back of my dress - but i still wanted the veil for the "bride feel" i wanted! the way i looked at it, if it were shorter, and ended around the top of your dress in the back, then it would distract from the dress. but a longer, simple veil would allow you to see through it, see the back of the dress - but still make you look like a bride! does that make ANY sense?

              Ya, I agree with Ann. The back of the dress is so pretty, I think if you got one longer one, with only one light layer you'd just be able to see through it and it wouldn't distract the eye from the dress.

                Yes, that does make sense... I just wondered since I have that loooooooong chiffon on the back. I want simple with no edging, yes one layer.
                Looks like they have everything on Occansey!

                    since i don't have my pics yet - i had to go through my slideshow to find some examples. i didn't want a big, heavy veil, but i actually thought it would bother me if it were too short - like i thought it would be too bulky or something. my veil was pretty sheer - which is what i wanted.

                    if you look through my slideshow you can see that the veil was pretty see through, and didn't block the dress - look at slides 37, 45, 47, and 50

                      they really do! and i had seen a veil that i liked, but didn't want to pay $600 for! so i just described it to them, they gave me a custom quote, and they made it. so if you have something specific in mind - just let them know, or send them pictures!
