Yeah I don't think a veil would make me feel like more of a bride tbh. But i'm sure for some brides it makes a difference. @MissJen3 we are almost there.... feel free to explain in depth how the veil made you feel, or not feel actually lol 


I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend

@Lilian84 The veil made me feel like I was wasting money (that I could be putting into my dress), and that I was being pressured into it because most people this it is tradition. I plan on doing a simple beachy/every day me, hair style, and I want it that way so the focus is on the dress, not my veil. It was painful at times, and just irritating to constantly have to push back all the time. If I feel that way after maybe, 5 minutes max, I could only imagine how much I would hate it all day.

 

 

One more post closer! ahah

@MissJen3 Yes I understand... I have long thick hair and it is one of the things my fiance loves about me. I'm pretty sure I know what he would like my hair to look like and I'm not sure a veil would go with that style. But I do love the pictures with the long veils surrounding the couple. So maybe i'll try to find a 'cheap one' if it exists, just for our pictures.

@Lilian84 My mom suggested making a 'cheap one.' Perhaps I will pass your information along to her. haha. My SIL also offered up hers for me to borrow. I do not know why exactly that I feel so strongly about not having one.  

I do agree with you about it looking beautiful in pictures.

@MissJen3 you feel that way because it's not you. And that's ok. Actually a really long piece of tulle attached to your hair could look like a veil in pictures and be pretty cheap. This is a great idea actually. Thank your mom for me :)

@Lilian84 I wore it to my pre-wedding photoshoot. It's an Asian thing...we wear formal wear to our photoshoots instead of casual wear. So, no engagement photos, just pre-wedding photos. It kinda make sense for us since I bought a wedding gown for quite a bit of coin to only wear it for a few hours? I don't think so! Better rock it over a few photoshoots!

 

I will be wearing the same dress and veil for our wedding in Dec.

 

I have some more pictures of our photoshoot here: http://www.bestdesti...1208/?p=1864158
