hey everyone... so i finally went for my try on appointment ( still needs to be fitted ) and it was the first time i saw my dress in all ivory and i loved it ;) i tried it on in champagne ivory and made the switch to all ivory without ever seeing it so i was terrified. anyway i cannot decide between a birdcage veil and a long veil.... i decided the short veil is not for me so its one of these.... after the ceremony i am just going to put a flower/sparkly clip thing in my hair.. all opinions are welcome ;) also there were other brides there who were having destiantion weddings and ALL of them had on simpler dresses than mine... had me thinking maybe my dress is a little more much for my beach wedding =*( i LOVE the dress but maybe i made a mistake ? i dont want to look like a fool !! so here are the pics . . . also after the ceremony the back of the dress will be bustled up i just didnt get a pic of it... please let me know if you think i went a lil overboard for a wedding on the beach... and which headpiece looks best.. thank you ;)

Wear what makes YOU happy!

It's funny... mine is very simple and beachy, and I briefly worried if it was "not enough". Hahahahaha! So I think everyone has that twinge of second-thought.

As for the veil, both look stunning. The long is dramatic and will make for some awesome blowing-in-the-breeze pictures. The birdcage is sweet and low-maintenance and yet dramatic as well. Personally, I like the birdcage, but maybe that is just because I like that style? I do not think I would like to keep track of a longer veil if it gets too windy on the beach. But then again, when else will you get a wear an honest-to-goodness veil? Keep looking at the pictures... and again, choose what YOU love! :)

I say go for the birdcage. Your dress has a lot going on at the bottom and I think the long veil actually gets lost in all the detail. A bird cage really pops against the simplicity of the top of your dress, and brings the eye up to your face too. :)
 

I've actually seen TONS of brides with "complicated" dresses on this site. And not a single one of them looked out of place, they only looked beautiful, radiant, and confident. I will be getting married in a dress that I never thought I'd wear myself. I envisioned a simple, flow-ey, light dress. But when I tried on my puffy A-line gown I fell in love, and I have not regretted my decision a single time! Wear what makes you feel good and nobody will think twice about the bride looking "out of place"!

Your dress is gorgeous. This pic looks like a professional one haha with the perfect bridal salon. I love how you went with a full dress even though you are having a destination wedding. Part of me regrets that I didn't and I listened to everyone saying I needed a lighter dress- although I have a lot of beadwork on mine and it actually weighs a lot LOL. I think big dresses look amazing on the beach. Your dress is a happy marriage of a mermaid style and a fuller dress- since the bottom comes out so nicely. It will look awesome in your pics. woot2.gif

OMG that dress is gorgeous! You're doing a pretty good job. I don't think you can be the "worst" bride at all..
