Veil or no Veil?

Recommended Posts

I never even thought if wearing a veil. Whenbi went o try on dresses and chose my dress I could here everyone outside the dressing room" I can't believe she won't wear a veil". So just to satisfy everyone I came out with the dress and veil. talk about dramatic, everyone was carry....I walked out with a dress & VEIL! Any of you ladies going to wear a veil?

I went with no veil. I never wanted one from the start. I knew that I was going to have a 20 minute ceremony beach ceremony, and it just seemed wasteful to spend money on a veil that I'd be wearing for 20 minutes.

 

Additionally, my destination is very windy. My WC showed me a picture of a girl who insisted on wearing a veil. They had to pin the veil to the back of her dress to keep it from blowing all over the place and disrupting the ceremony. Then the veil shot out horizontally from behind her back where the it was pinned. It looked quite odd in the picture. So this solidified my decision.

I'm not wearing a veil either.  Since the beginning of the wedding planning, I decided that I want a flower in my hair and no veil.  I kept thinking about the wind down there and didn't want that distracting me all day long.

I'm doing a DIY birdcage veil with a feather/flower/crystal hair clip for the ceremony, then I can just take off the birdcage veil after pics for the reception, and put my flower back in. easy peasy.

 

I never even considered a longer veil, too much going on for me! I'm klutzy... I would probably get all tangled up in it knowing me!

The veil I chose in mid length, hits my lower back...the veil in the wind for pics is an awesome idea! Like my mom said, "when will.you wear a veil again?" I responded .." when I get married again!" hahaha...my mother in law didn't laugh!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
