Windy Jamaica and a veil

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on wearing a chapel/cathedral veil (something that extends just past my train).

I love the look of cathedral veils so i'm just going for it!

hey ladies - what about this? veil weights!! genius!!

they're a bit pricy at $65/package - I bet you could DIY with some pearls and flat magnets and then stick them wherever on your dress or veil to prevent a lot of the wind.

 

if anyone is willing to invest in some, we could get a share going. if six people signed up, it would drop the price to $11 each!

I ended up wearing a long veil on the beach for my wedding.  It was windy and there was a storm that was due to hit and I was fine with my veil here are some pics of it.  BTW I bought 2 veils a long one and short one for my reception dress. and paid $30 for both on ebay!

I think it depends more on what you want to wear and your personality, I wore veil for my BD shoot, I had it on for about 30. Did I ever hated it!! I could not wait to take it off. LOL

But I know myself if I wanted to wear one to my wedding, nothing would stop me :D

I think you should just go with what you want, it is the only chance you will be able to wear one!!

heee, I was talking hairstyles today with my salon guru, and I confessed that I think I'm more excited about the veil than the dress!! : )

 

thanks for the follow-up, erika. I'm glad to know that it worked out with a chapel-length veil. I may try some DIY experimentation with veil weights or investigate the invisible snaps, but it's good to know it would work even without either of those. I'm also planning to wear the veil under my updo (and not above) so it can be easily removed without disturbing the hairstyle, just in case.
