I think you should go to a bridal shop and def look at and try on the different veil types. Then you can go on Etsy, Ebay, or even check out the classified ads here on the bee to get a veil possibly for cheaper. My friend made my catherdral length veil and it was literally just a bunch of tulle that she attatched to a hair comb. We scattered and then glued some rhinestones on it and no one knew it was homemade! We saved literally $400 by doing that. Can’t really see the veil too well in the picture below but you get the idea.

@DarthBetty: If you’re dead set on getting a veil, please ignore me, but I feel like your outfit doesn’t need one! I had a tea length dress myself, and opted for flowers instead of any other type of decoration. It felt a little more modern to me if that makes sense, a short wedding dress with a veil does scream “retro bride” to me.

@eocenia:  i totally agree. 

i really do not see a typical veil with that dress.  flowers would be lovely.

What did the veil look like that she was supposed to be making?

@DarthBetty: Totally get the anger and disappointment, that’s such a bad way to handle your confidence! Go out for a walk, kick a garbage can or clean the house – get some frustration out of your body! If that doesn’t help, have a glass of wine and try to put this past you.

I don’t have many photos from our wedding yet, but here’s two photos showing my dress and the lack of veil – in case you find that inspiring! 

And a late night shot of the flowers that was the only decoration I had in my hair, they’re a little tired here, but that’s the only photo I have at the moment:

@mypinkshoes: I’m obviously biased, but I think flowers would be a much nicer option than a veil!

@DarthBetty: Perhaps something like this if you want a dab of colour?

I would wear a shoulder-length drop veil! But I LOVE veils, and couldn’t imagine getting married without one!

@DarthBetty: I’m so glad you’re not offended by my suggestions! I know your heart was set on a veil and you’re absolutely in your rights to be disappointed – it’s just that when I saw your dress I thought flowers would be so much prettier!

As for using succulents in your hair, I think it’s a great idea! You could either have a comb with flowers, something like this or this, or perhaps use a few like clips? If you’re going for the 50’s look, I would probably have my hair done something like this, just with succulents instead of the jewel clip.
