    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.
    I am ordering mine off of ebay. my dress has some lace on it, so I decided to get one with lace edging.

    Here's a picture, word of warning the mannequin is scary!!!

    I'm also going to wear it low on the back of my head tucked under my hair, I don't want it over my shoulders like that.

        Yikes! Yes she is a little scary!

        I really like the mantilla look - Can't wait to see it all come together!

              Oh my God, Paula! This sounds so strange, but you look so beautiful in the pictures that it just brought tears to my eyes!! That dress is just so amazing I keep scrolling back up and looking at it!!!

              I love what you have for your veil idea---- I think the length is perfect with that dress, and the single layer is perfect too because you want the detail of the back of your dress to stand out and not be "hidden" by the veil! I do agree tho about the color being a little off. I think the contrast of getting the veil in a slightly different shade of the dress is the right idea, but maybe something more of a cream color in the same veil?

              I'm so happy for you (Twinkie!) for finding your dress so quickly!! It's just absolutely amazing on you!!!

                That dress is amazing! Actually, it's you that look amazing in it. Perfect choice. I would go with a different color veil.

                    Awwwww!
                    I have actually been second guessing my choice now, but it has to be because of the veil in these pictures. This dress has been 'it' since the first time I tried it on, all others were compared to it. It seems a lot more plunging now that I see it in pictures too...

                    Good luck at work today Maria!
