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 my dress detail:

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 voted for 1-tier ivory. They would all be beautiful, but I'm a fan of 1-tier and the traditional ivory coloring.

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 think a 1 tier ivory would be beautiful! The detail on the one will compete with your dress, and your dress is too beautiful!

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. :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
