I'm having a hard time deciding whether or not I want to wear a veil in our wedding.  Here is a picture of the dress.  IMG_0817.JPG

 

Did any other brides have a hard time making this decision?  Did you wear a veil to your wedding?  Would a veil look weird since my hair is short?  I've never even tried one on...

I had been going back and forth on veil or no veil as well but once when I was trying on a dress and had one put on I felt like a total bride and decided yup I needed a veil, even if I only wear it for the ceremony and pictures!

 

You could always do a fingertip length veil and then it wouldn't take anything away from or cover up the ruffle detail on the bottom of the dress.

 

As for hair, I have medium/long hair so I don't have suggestions for hair but I did just google "short hair with a veil" and google images comes up with many different options, I think any length of hair can still look fantastic with a veil!

 

Good Luck! And Beautiful dress by the way!!!!

I love your dress!!! it's stunning.

 

You could do a birdcage veil, or even a fingertip - it wouldn't hide the layers of your dress. how are you planning to wear your hair on the day-of? You could do something like a half-up style, so it crosses in the back, and then put the veil comb in there.

 

the most important thing is to try on veils WITH your dress. it does change what you think may or may not work.

 

and you can always decide to go with a flower instead of a veil (or even in addition to).

 

I'm going with a veil - I've always wanted to wear one. I also want the pictures with the veil flying in the wind. I'm still trying to decide fingertip or longer - I really want longer, though the fingertip looked great with the gown.

 

Good luck with your decision - whatever you decide will be perfect.

I agree that you need to go try some on. I'm not planning on wearing a veil. I always thought I would want one but while trying on dresses the salesperson put one on me and I burst out laughing, I looked ridiculous! My sister thought it looked great, but I couldnt wait to take it off! I'm going to go with a simple flower in my hair.

I was completely opposite..I went in with not wanting a veil. My mom insisted I try one on with the dress I ending up falling in love with and she was right..it looks great. I will only wear it for the ceremony and some pictures though, then I'll switch to a simple hair flower.

My dress has a similar shape to yours with asymmetrical ruffles and a sweep length train but is a mermaid fit. I thought I didn't want a veil but tried it one with a fingertip length and loved it. I thought that's the longest length I could do since I'm not getting married in a church and I'm not that young either (I'm 33). But more recently I've decided you know what? I plan on only getting married once, I've waited this long so eff it...I'm doing it big and am getting a chapel length veil! Just 1 layer, no beading. I have longer hair so I'm wearing my hair in a side ponytail with a flower tucked in as well. After ceremony and pics I'll remove the veil and just keep the flower in. Good luck!

I was really torn between wearing a veil and not wearing a veil.  My mom kept telling me it would be the only time I would be able to wear a veil.  In the end I opted not to wear a veil (I had one and even took it with me just in case I changed my mind).  It was really really windy at the gazebo by the ocean where I was married so in the end I didnt wear it due to the wind.  It would have been flapping all over the place and probably woudln't have stayed in.   Instead I had just a simple white hair flower.  I think if you want a veil go for it.

I wasnt sure if I wanted a veil either and I certainly did not want to spend money on a veil and then feel pressured to wear it, so my grandmother actually made my veil for under $10 and I LOVED it a lot more than any I tried on in the store. I ended up wearing mine for pictures away from the beach and walked down the isle in it. But it got so windy that it kept hitting my husband in the face, so my MOH leaned in and whispered "I think it's time to lose the veil"! HAHA so i subtly leaned back and she luckily got the comb out with a little tug. After the fact, I am glad that I have quite a few pics with me in my dress and the veil so thats always an option too.

I have decided not to wear a veil. I have no real excitement about wearing one and the fact that it's the only time I get to do it, doesn't really matter to me. I'm much more excited to wear my hair up in kind of a messy updo, with a flower on the side. I think that will complement the beach wedding perfectly. I know most brides do wear one, and I think they are absolutely beautiful on some women, it just wasn't something I wanted to do.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
