    I love the veil (just like mine!) and I also am having a headband (lace pretty) for the reception .  I like the original flowers you already have best, I would put them in after the ceremony when you take your veil off 🙂

    I like the flower over the veil, though the veil is pretty. However, I don’t have a particular favorite – all the flower choices you showed are great! But like you said, you could always do the flower and veil then switch to just the flower at the reception. If you wear the veil under your updo, put the flower to the side of the updo and it should look awesome.

    I also wore a flower (I eloped thsi time and it was very casual). I bought it off etsy and got one that is simple (no sparkles or feathers, etc.) and have worn it several times since I eloped. 🙂 But then I’m a fan of wearing flowers in my hair just in general. I think it’s fun.

    You responded to my post about the dress -we are dress twins.  I think that it is pretty to so the veil with the flowers – that is what I am doing.  The vale I chose just has a simple stitch that matches the stitch on the end of all the ruffles on the dress.  I like the alternative flowers you chose more than the organza ones that you already have.  I’d say that the one you use would depend on how much hair you have and how you are wearing it.  For example if you are putting your hair back on one side, but leaving the rest free flowing, then go with the larger one.  If you are doing a low ponytail, or a low tuck on one side, (which is what I am thinking of doing – the low ponytail) then I would choose the smaller flower.  I will try to get some of the pics my sister took of my veil and flower and then I will post for you.

    My dress was organza too and I wore an organza flower and a bead trimmed veil.  I like the flowers you already have!

    Here is a pic from my ceremony showing my flower and veil

    If you want a flower, why not put a real flower in your hair?  I was really indecisive when it came to my wedding.  I had a veil, and ended up not wearing it.  But, simply because we had ordered gardenias and had an extra, ended up wearing a gardenia in my hair.  It looked great and smelled fantastic.  All day long, I kept getting compliments on how good I smelled.  I wasn’t wearing perfume.  It was the flower they kept putting their noses into when they hugged me!

    And — not too much organza, for sure.

    I love the look of a veil and flower together. It makes it really elegant and so easy to just remove the veil and go.
