Windy Jamaica and a veil

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies!

 

Any advice on whether or not it is a good idea to wear in a veil in Jamaica? From what I understand it can get pretty windy.

I think that if you really want to wear a veil, then go for it. Yes, there was a breeze on the beach the day that I got married, but it's not like my veil was in danger of getting blown away & honestly, it really didn't bother me one bit.

 

       Don't let the thought of a breeze scare you. Just think, what if it isn't a breezy/windy day on your wedding day? Would you regret not wearing one? Hopefully that helps.

I opted against one, I didn't want one really anyway but it was quite windy at our wedding.  My hair was all over the place and I had it sprayed pretty firm so I can only imagine a veil would have been difficult. 

 

However if you really want one, get it and make your decision on your wedding day, it may not be windy your special day, or go with a birdcage veil, I think they are pretty safe for the wind.

I've been trying to decide whether or not I want a veil as well.  I think I will get one, and also plan to put a flower in my hair.  I will wear the veil for the ceremony - mine is also in Jamaica, but not on the beach, it will be on a terrace overlooking the resort.  So I think it will be fine for the ceremony at least.  From there, I'll see how it goes.  I will probably keep it on for some pictures, and then take it off halfway through the beach pictures.  I'll still have the flower.  Then I'll see how I feel at the reception.  I was really worried about it at first, because of the beach and because I thought it might be too much for me, but when I tried one on with my dress I did like it.  So I will have one as an option, just so I don't regret not having one.  Hope this helps.

at first i was TOTALLY against the thought of a veil..in fact, i bought two dresses..one short and with a birdcage veil just so i could appease my mother...that didn't work..then, the more i look at bridal pics..of both traditional (aka church) and destination brides..i'm LOVING the idea of the veil...so, now the search is on for the most beautiful cathedral length (i'm going for it - let it BLOW in the wind) veil i can find.  wish me luck!!! :-) R~

I've seen photos of brides wearing veils that were blown by the wind...I thought they looked really beautiful and elegant. Maybe wear them just for photos if you're worried about it being unwieldy while you walk down the aisle during the ceremony?

I'm planning on just wearing a veil for the ceremony and a few pictures and then taking if off and just having a flower in my hair.  At first i didn't want a veil due to the wind, but then I though, would I regret not wearing one and I thought I might, plus when else do you get to wear a veil!

I was worried about that at first too, but I'm going for it. I'm getting married once, and might as well have a veil. I say go for it.

I definitely have my heart set on wearing a chapel-length veil, even if it does blow. someone suggested putting invisible snaps on my dress. that way, if I want it secured (e.g. for the ceremony), I can have snapped and then I can unsnap it for the photos. they also said even the veil can be bustled, so I'll probably try that for the reception. I think the veil is a really elegant look and agree with the other brides - when else will you get to wear a veil? : )

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
