    Well put- so true. I was surprised also with the people who were the most generous. I expected my family to be the most supportive and its been some of our friends or my co-workers. Crazy!

I was also considering a bird cage for pictures after but don't know if I wanted a head dress that distracting for all the pictures. I bought a hair flower with feathers and rhinestones but I don't think I'll use it after all, or maybe only where it for a little bit. Who knew hair pieces can be this confusing too!!

    I agree that hair pieces/veils are very confusing.  I am still trying to decide on what to do..I know I don't want a traditional veil, but I am undecided between a birdcage or fasinator or flower, or a combination of two.  I will probably wait until my dress comes in and then try on different things at the bridal store just so I can see what I like and don't like with my dress.

      good idea to try different kinds with your dress so you can see what goes with it.

       

      i probably will not wear a veil but maybe tuck in a flower. good luck!

            I went with one - it flew off the second I got to the end of the aisle! But I'm glad I have it, because we got cool pictures with it after. Plus it was only like $30 on Etsy.

              I love this picture!!!! This is one of the many reasons I want to wear a veil.... a beautiful picture by the ocean with my veil in the wind. You did it right!

                Yes I am also unsure about a veil. I definitely dont want it to be flying all over the place! I'll have to leep thw weights in mind If I decide yes. Has anyone else used weights? If so, what did you use?
