But now I have a lot of questions:
Are there any rules/guideline when selecting a veil dependent on your dresses silhouette, your height or torso length?
So I bought a sample, do I have to lug take my dress into a bridal store and try it on with veils in order to pick the best match? Or can I just pic one that I like online (huge online shopper).
My logic is if I get a veil with a bit of embellishment around the perimeter edge than maybe it will be weighed down enough and wonâ€™t be obnoxious during the ceremony. But will this weigh it down too much for the whimsical windblown pics after?
Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.
I just purchased this this morning:
It was only $25 after shipping, so I figure if it doesn't look good, I won't feel awful about the money spent. Light in the box is doing half price shipping but today is the last day for it....
