    @Eckle:  ehhhh….there’s something about the top that’s throwing me off, maybe it’s a little too flat? Maybe it needs a barrette or something blingy?

    Yes, the top is too flat… like it’s too close to your head? In the first inspiration pic it’s a little… poofier? I think you also need to use more fabric to let the veil wrinkle and bunch a bit as you drape it and pin the lace, so it isn’t plastered to your head. But I think you’re on the right track!

    This is much better than the previous attempt! I also think that the look will be completely enhanced once you add the lace flower.

    But this is a definite improvement to the first version! I don’t think you look like a lunch lady anymore. 🙂

    I know you don’t want the length, but to me, that is what is making the difference. Picture number two in this thread looks nice. Without the length, it doesn’t look right. What about a birdcage veil or just a pretty flower in your hair with no veil?

    Try this: Next time you so your make up, part your hair to the side, put on the veil and give us a smile! It will give a better example of how it will look and I think that it will look beautiful on the wedding day! But I do agree with posters on the first post that this hair part/veil does give off a country and amish vibe. It’s getting there though!!

    totally agree with above. part your hair and smile! i think part of what could be throwing us off is that you dont look thrilled about it. you can win over anyone on anything with confidence! This attempt is an improvement, agree that it looks a bit too flat and I do think itd look great with some length

    I would suggest thus look would nicer with your hair down with voluminous curls. You have such nice thick hair! And smile, girl 🙂

    I agree that something is missing.

    It looks like the viel you currently have on doesn’t have even rouching.. like where the fabric meets. In your inspriation photos, there are scrunching or whatever you want to call it where the fabric is put together is much larger [like the folds].

    I was going to write… I don’ thave a good imagination. So a serious face, tee shirt and veil does just speak wrong to me!  I would like to add that you try it on with a strappy tank or something else closer to the dressiness of a wedding gown, along with a smile and, if you’re planning on it, drop earrings or whatever.  You have to paint the whole picture!  Or at least for those with no imagination like me.  But what do I know? I’m having anxiety about shoes and earrings because I don’t have my dress in my possession yet… To the point I”m considering going back tot he bridal salon just to see how i like the ones I’ve found so far with the dress!!!

    This type of veil looks better when it is longer. The way it is right now looks like a Mennonite bonnet.

    I think the problem is how it’s secured – really tightly on either side. I think if you could see the other side of that veil, it wouldn’t be so…symmetrical?
