    ...and I am not loving the veil after seeing it in pictures. It was spread out when I was playing with it and then holding it up to the dress.
    They were going to order it in mocha, but with ivory trim - the one in the pic is mocha trim.

      As for the veil. It's nice, but I agree, it's a bit off somehow. Can you cancel your order or return it once it gets in?
      I agree.... the dress is stunning, but I am not crazy about the color of the veil.

        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

        I went through the entire slideshow again! Ha! Your wedding was so beautiful! I love the long veil with your dress...

        I went through the customizing process on that site for a simple long veil and it was only $31 !
        Thanks for the help! I will talk to the boutique owner tomorrow.
        I feel bad canceling it since I just ordered it. They are so nice though, I hope they understand.

          awww - thank you!

          i am sure they will understand - brides change their mind all of the time! i do feel bad though - did we talk you out of the veil that you really liked? i hope not!

          what kind of veil did you get priced out?

            Ooooh nooo you didn't talk me out of it... I told them I wasn't so sure. You all confirmed it... the pictures did too... I didn't see it bunched up when I was there :)

            I closed out of that window, but it was a single layer, 52 inch I think? 3 inch plastic comb, the finish was just 'cut'.

                  Beautiful Paula! I do like the veil, but I must agree, the color doesn't go too well with the train. But its a very nice color.

                    Paula, you look so beautiful! I love your dress! I agree with the others, I know I'm late, but I don't like the color of the veil. And I know exactly what you mean about wanting to have a veil because I do too!! Even if its super windy!! I'm going to try your trick with the weights (I think it was fishing sinkers, right?) I am getting a 1 layer sheer veil too because I don't want it to totally hide the back of my dress. Nothing crazy!

                      Just got off the phone with my MOH. I sent her the pictures too and she said it had to be the lighting because it did not look like that in the store... Anyway...

                      I am still going to try and cancel the veil.

                      Where are you getting your veil from Jilly?
                      Yes they were tiny fishing weights, but I guess you can do the same with some little beads.
