Recommended Posts

Krista.Baird- Wherever you got that first picture did they have a view of the back of her hair? I really think that looks great! Thanks so much guys for all this advice! My veil seems to be one that you would wear on the top of you head cuz it has sides (i donno really how to explain) so I was wondering if I didnt like with my hair if theres such thing as altering a veil? to cute the sides off? All in all, I think I'm just gonna have to go to the hair trial and see what they come up with. We cant take this veil back either sad.gif Anyone know of a website to get a plain tiny simple veil with no beading or anything? I've been looking and cant find anything! Thanks so much guys!!

I don't think it will look stupid at all (btw, LOVE that hairdo). The pictures that Krista posted look beautiful. I also like the idea of wearing your hair down for the veil and then gently making a side pony tail for the reception where you won't wear the veil. It will make his Mom happy, it's such a small issue that I would not risk hurting her feelings even the slightest bit on what's supposed to be such a happy day. Unless you REALLY can't stand the veil :)

 

My dress has a "fancy" back as well so I plan to take the veil off for the reception and especially when I'm dancing so it doesn't get into people's faces!

I know a veil is see-thru but I still think it will take away from it.

 

 

Here is my veil..

MDLady- Wearing my hair down is completely out of the question unfortunatly! I am totally a hair down kind of person, but for the back of my dress, I cant. My hair is too long and it will cover the entire bead work on the back of my dress thus I've settled with a side ponytail. I always envisioned myself with my hair down and curled but obvi that went out the window with the dress I picked.

Hi Island Bride,

 

Sorry but there is no back pic of that hair. I just googled side ponytail and veil and looked for images. Is there any way you could change your veil so that it is on a simple small comb?

 

Do you mind if I asked if you considered wearing your hair up with the veil for the ceremony, but in a simple bun or something. Then when it's time for reception or pictures, etc, you can take the veil off, let the bun out, and have a cute side ponytail? That's what Im considering doing because I can't decide between an updo or a side ponytail, this way I can have both :)

I think you would be fine if you got the side ponytail and wore the veil during the ceremony and took it off for the reception. I'm sure you could alter the veil, but if I spent $150 on a veil and cut it all up I would be upset. Oh I don’t blame you for wanting to not cover up the back of your dress! It’s gorgeous! Maybe the veil can be made shorter so you don’t cover the back of the dress but the veil still looks the same but shorter.

 

You DEFINITELY need a hair trial! I would do that first with the veil and see how it all looks then make your decision.

The BACK OF YOUR GOWN is positively STUNNING....I am a Maggie bride myself, and that feature of the gown IS, in essence, it's showpiece -- so I KNOW why you would rather do anything else than cover it up!

 

And I took a look at the veil you posted as the one you sort of "have" to wear by default. Hmmmmmn.....here's a compromise-suggestion: can they cut away all the extra layers and make it one-tier (whichever layer/length you choose) and call it even?

 

THEN, you'll still be wearing a veil, but being only 1 very sheer layer, you'll still get the effect of the detail on the back of your gown without missing a beat?

 

And even more, let me echo the other girls that said one VERY IMPORTANT THING:

 

YOU ARE THE BRIDE!!!

 

Look how you want to look; do what you want to do....it IS YOUR ONE DAY to be completely, unapologectically selfish in the way YOU LOOK, so compromise for NO ONE!

 

But that is just my $0.02 wink.gif

 

Good luck, sugar! Please let us know what you come up with in the end!

    • 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.
