I’m so sorry, I don’t have a veil to post – but I LOVE your “bump” picture 🙂

I just wanted to note two things.  First, I wore a cathedral-length tulle veil to my outdoor ceremony, and it did catch on the concrete while I was walking down the aisle.  Even knowing this, I still would have chosen it, because I loved it. 

Also, when I discovered that the veil I had chosen was $500, I just assumed that it was silk, given the price. (I originally wanted a silk-tulle veil, since my dress was silk.) However, I learned that the veil I had chosen was not made of silk tulle, and the the owner of the bridal salon where I purchased it explained that silk tulle is extremely fragile and tends to tear very easily, so she advised me against considering silk.

I wore a dress that is now discontinued, James Clifford 1648, and it was silk taffeta in “diamond white” — which is basically a light-ivory color.  I purchased a light-ivory, tulle veil to match, and it looked great.

Does your dress have a silk-tulle skirt?
