Veil Decision -- Down to Two.

Recommended Posts

Ok ladies ... This weekend has been all about getting caught up on the forum and getting caught up DW stuff that I haven't gotten around to yet.

 

Now, it's veil time. I love the veil they showed me at David's Bridal when I bought the dress, but it's almost $200 -- and I just don't see spending that much.

 

So I've found 2 veils for less that half that cost and would like some feedback. I'm posting a pic of my dress detail so you can see what it will be laying up against.

 

I want an elbow length veil -- I've picked one that's a 1-tier and one that's a 2-tier.

 

I also don't know if I should get ivory or champagne.

 

Or -- should I get a plain veil w/o detailing at all?

Here's the 1-tier veil w/ detailing (shown in cathedral length but I'd be getting elbow length):

I say the second one, only because your dress has so much detailing on it, I think the first one would take away from the dress. Know what I mean?

I like the 2 tier (last one) Tami. I think it will look really good with the detailing on your gorgeous dress ( this is the first time I saw it btw). Veils are so much fun and I think the bridal essential accessory. lol

 

Your day is comming up quickly, you must be getting more and more excited!!

if i have to choose, i say #2...but i think a plain veil would be best - kinda feel like less is more here....so i didn't vote.

where'd you find decent priced veils tho? i'm still searching (and running out of time!)

I also did not vote, I think you should go 1 tier and plain. I personally like 1 tier though, that is what I went with. I think you need to try them on with your dress to know which one you like the best.

I am with Julie. A 1 tier and plain veil probably will be better. The veil is there to compliment you don't want it to take away the attention to the details on your dress.

I agree 100%. The veil shouldn't take away from the dress at all, it should only highlight the dress. When I look at the second picture, I see veil right away - I think it'd be too much. I like the first one, but again, I agree - I think something with only one tier and simplified a little, even if it's not completely plain, that'd ADD to your dress in the end. :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
