- Wedding: November 2014
Hi!!! SOOO I bought my dress!!!! I actually bought it before the real true proposal, I know it’s crazy lol but he already bought the ring, has talked to my mom and we are just missing my dad (who already knows thanks to my mother not being able to keep secrets from him lol) and I just couldnt resist, it’s the dress of my DREAMS and under the budget I had! Ultimately what sold me, I was like many before me have been torn between two dresses both similar and both preowned, was that this dress fit my exact measurements! YAAAAAY I actually think I bought it from another bee but I never asked her if it is her in the picture that actually convinced me to buy the dress!
Since I don’t have an image of myself in the dress yet (paypal processing, live in Costa Rica, being sent to FIL in texas, won’t have it until june ;( I am attaching the image that sold me, albeit cropped hoping it will avoid any possible anger from the owner of the image and protect her privacy 🙂
My heart skips beats just looking at it! It’s the lazaro 3819
I couldnt find the matching lazaro veil but I think it would be too much anyways!
Now for the actual dilemma! I want a veil, and I want to get it as soon as possible so I can focus on my studies (I’m a med student here but took the semester off to study for the medical boards in the US) and I know I wont until I get it out of the way, I must admit I’m a control freak! I know I want a cathedral length veil with a raw edge BUT I can’t decide if I want a single tier or a drop veil! I’m in love with the drop veil but I’m worried it might be too much with the dress, what do you guys think???
Also I found an amazing lady in England who could make me either or in silk but I don’t know if it is really worth it, it would still be in my budget for the veil (yay!) but of course I could save more if I went through etsy with a regular veil (already have a seller picked out too!) I just can’t find any silk veils here to compare them!
Summary: Drop veil or single tier? Silk or tulle?
