So, I think I need some help here.
Up until now I’ve known exactly what I wanted. Sorta. Anyways, I have this beautiful Watters silk-shantung dress, and I have no idea what kind of veil to wear with it. (And the picture doesn’t do it justice, btw).
There’s not a lot of ornamentation on it, just some buttons down the back, and I’m not a very flashy person to begin. I would consider my look to be classy, and timeless. I love the idea of ribbon-edged veils but I’ve read some articles on how they can visually cut you in half (which isn’t good, since my large bust and short waist make me look squatty for my 5 foot 6 height). I don’t know what would look good with my plain dress, balance out my large bust, and fit with my wedding style. I’ve though about a fountain veil. I know for sure I don’t want something too short. My hair is going to be in a low chignon. I’m probably going to wear my great-grandmothers pearls.
The ceremony is taking place at an old 1920’s church, and the reception is taking place at an old 1920’s theatre/ballroom. The bridesmaids are wearing strapless tea-length dresses and my colors are white, pale greens, and pale blues. The dress was picked out and paid for before the true old-fashioned theme of my wedding really started to unfold.
Does anybody have any advice for me?
