For some reason, i’m just not a big veil person. Everyone (mom, MIL, friends) seem disappointed when I say I’m not wearing a veil. I’m quite ok without wearing one, although I considered a birdcage veil.
Besides not really liking veils, my dress is a beautiful Lazaro and the back of the gown is the best part so i feel like a veil will hide that (see pic). I think I’m going to go with either a jeweled headband or flower in my hair. Anyone know where to get reasonably priced headbands/flower headpieces?
Also what do you guys think about the earring I’m wearring (they aren’t the traditional bridal earrings), but I love them! I wont be doing a necklace.
BTW: the pics were taken @ my dress fitting so ignore any stick pins 🙂

There aren’t any pics
But, I am in the same spot you are. I just got my dress and while we were shopping my mom, MOH, and bridemaids were all upset that I wouldn’t be wearing a veil. I have been looking at different headbands and flowers for my hair too. I would suggest looking on Etsy…they have such a large varuety of artists!

I didn’t wear a veil – just a headband. I bought it off etsy. There are TONS of great options on there.

I’m not doing a veil either – I had some beautiful hair pins made for my hair :o)
If I was having the big Catholic church wedding how I orginally planned, then I was going to do a long Cathedral length veil – but that idea got nixed!
Check http://www.etsy.com for beautiful hair pins, clips, birdcage veils, etc…..relatively inexpensive as well!

I really like your earrings. The green is lovely, and I wouldn’t wear a veil with them either.
I’m doing a large flower/feather clip in my hair that is pretty large (but looks great!) and no veil. I bought it my bridal salon for about $125, and have seen similar ones on etsy for around $50-$200.

I am not wearing a veil. I think my mom and sister are disappointed, but I have no desire to wear one.
I really love your dress! I agree that it would be a shame to hide the back when there is so much detail there. Also, I love the punch of color your earrings bring to the outfit.

No veil here, either. I agree with the Etsy recommendation. There are some gorgeous handcrafted items there. Also, you can put a request out for a custom-designed piece, too.

I didn’t wear a veil and at DAvids Bridal everyone gave me a super hard time about it (and said I’d look like a Quinceanera) but at the wedding no one even seemed to notice it.

Definitely don’t want to wear a veil. My friends and family don’t understand why and say I have to have one. But I don’t care. I would rather show off the back of my dress more and not have my hair ruined by the veil (since I would want to take it off after the ceremony anyways if I were to wear one).
Oh by the way… love the dress and the earrings. That’s going to look stunning!

I love love your dress! what is the name of it??? I think it is fine if you are not wearing a veil—for me I will wear one because I will get married in a church and I want to look a little modst out of respect since I know I want a strapless dress. where is your ceremony location?
