- Wedding: March 2013
I’m having the HARDEST time ever finding a veil. I went from not wanting one at all, to wanting a very minimal one, to even considering a chapel length veil.
I need suggestiong on how to find the right one. I have the dress in my possession and have to wait until about December to take it in for alterations. But I’m taking it to a seamstress, not a bridal shop. So, I won’t have access the veils to try on with the gown. I bought my gown at a shop that’s very far from me and they didn’t do their own alterations anyway.
Also, I don’t feel my ceremony venue warrants a long, formal veil. My gown might even be a bit more formal than I intended, but I figured as the bride, I could get away with it. I plan to only wear it for the ceremony and take it off for the reception, so I don’t want to spend a whole lot.
I plan to wear my hair either down or mostly down, and I have a beautiful crystal headband that I plan to wear with the veil attached to it or behind it, so I can take it off later and keep the headband on.
Can someone point me in the right direction?
Here is my gown:
And here is my headband (but my hair will be mostly down):
And here is the back of my dress with me in it, but mine is diamond white, not ivory pearl:
