It sounds like you had a blast!! Enjoy every moment of the planning. I miss it now and every time I head down to my basement i get super melancholic, knowing that there's no more wedding projects waiting for me. The whole week went by too fast, and the wedding day went by even faster. So, enjoy. I made sure to take a few deep breaths on the wedding day and just take it all in, as other brides suggested. I'm so happy I did! I remember quite a bit from that day and I cherish those memories so much .
I'm sure your veil will be fine! Maybe try and find a little clip or something so you can clip it on to your dress from the back. I don't know if I'm explaining myself, but let's say that your right profile is facing your guests during the ceremony, then place a clip on your left side, holding the veil to your dress. The veil will blow around a bit but it won't be on your face. I'm thinking of a little alligator clip or something like that, which would be easy to clip and then take off. You can get them from the dollar store probably. During our pictures, Juan was actually holding my veil down behind me haha, and it looked like he was" hugging me" .
Funny story (and kind of unrelated), one of our guests has a son who will be getting married in about 2 years. They were considering a DW wedding as well, and I was so happy to hear that when our guest came back and spoke with them she was like "do it! it was awesome!" hahah. I'm so excited for you to head down there and experience a DW. I am beyond happy that Juan pushed me to do this! (Initially i wasn't sold on the whole DW idea).
I had way too much fun lol! I'll always cherish what I can remember of it haha. Awww, I'm sure there's still some things to do after the wedding right? I'm worried that the whole trip will just fly by too fast. I'm also hoping that me and Dan can get some alone time while we're down there. I'm starting to wish that I booked 10 days instead of just 7. Did you and Juan get any time to yourselves?
I can't believe I'm now counting down the days. It's weird, but I already feel a little sad and I miss certain parts of planning. I'm not looking forward to the wedding blues.
I saw your wedding video on UStream so I understand what you mean about my profile on the wedding day. I read your experience about the veil weights and decided not to do them. I'm going to take your advice with the clip and just clip it on the side the guests can't see.
My fiance was the one that also sold me on a DW as he liked the price of a DW v.s a traditional wedding. I thought DW's were cool, but I didn't think it was for me at first, then when I actually saw one (I wasn't a guest at one I was a creep on vacation and decided to watch a couple get married on the beach) I thought it was something I could do if I for some reason couldn't have a traditional wedding. Since I've started planning our DW I've never looked back on that decision and I know that in the end it will be just perfect and I would never regret it.
