I picked my dress up yesterday... so now its just hanging in my guest bedroom waiting for me to try it on lol! Sooo tempting! I was wondering what you guys are planning on doing for headpieces/veils? Are you guys planning on wearing a veil? I thought I wasn't going to but I feel like I look "incomplete" without it. So I might just go with a short one for the ceremony and a jeweled flower/starfish hair clip. I am afraid the veil will blow away and around too much though so I don't know lol!

Hi ladies,

 

I am not wearing a veil, because it isn't me.  I think I am just going to be wearing a white hair flower.  I do love the bird cage veils but they just don't suit me.  We shall see... a lot of time, I may change my mind. ahaha

 

I made 3 more bouquets this past weekend, I like them but they are a little off white (the roses) and I am worried about them not looking good in pictures because they are off white :( I don't know what to do. ????????

I think I may have seen that video... Yeah thats my only worry that it blow around and get in the way... we are also having a ceremony in the church here as well as my FI is catholic and really wanted to get married in the church as well... so I might get one, bring it with me and go up on the terrace one day and try if out and see what it does!

I am the same I love Bird Cage Veils until I put one on, so not me! LOL

 

Lets see pictures, I am sure it will be fine, think of off white or ivory dresses they always look good, the only problem you might have if your dress is white and the flowers arent then they may look yellow, same with if your dress is off white or ivory and the flowers are white it may make the dress look yellow!

Here are the pictures ... they're all gonna have one purple/blue orchid like the one in the vase does.  I put them up against a white shirt... what do you think... too yellow?:(

Kay- I don't think it looks bad at all... I think you won't ever get the perfect shade of white to go with your dress or vice versa. Really no one is going to notice that they look a little more yellow then your dress. I like the creamier looking colour then super white anyway! I guess it depends on how important flowers are to you. If you look back on your photos in 10 or 20 years are you going to regret not having whiter flowers? If not then I would keep them and use them. If you feel like you would regret it then maybe you should look into getting some other flowers? I think sometimes as brides we get a little caught up in these minute details that in the end will not even make a difference. Just try to keep that in mind when making a decision!

Thank you for a little reassurance csho! I think I am being way too picky I really like the pictures I added of them, they do look good.

I think the bouquets look gorgeous and I really don't think you will even notice at all the colour difference!! I have decided to just go with whatever the resort provides for me... so at least you know what you'll have lol!

 

And I love those sandals they are so cute!!! I am just wearing an old pair of shoes that I have worn as bridesmaids shoes in two other weddings... they are not too high and they are silver and match my dress perfectly!!! And plus they are kind of special since I have worn them to 2 weddings as a bridesmaid before and now I get to wear them as a bride... I just need to clean them up a bit! And then I am thinking I'll jsut get a pair of flip flops for the reception and dinner! There are a really cute pair of coral sandals that are prettty at Spring so I am thinking of getting those, they'll add a little fun and no one will really notice them anyway and I can wear them again!
