- Wedding: June 2014
I’m getting ready to order my veil from occansey designs. I’m not really convinced of a certain style or anything, so I want to see if anyone can present a good argument for a certain style of veil.
– will probably only wear the veil for the ceremony and some pictures.
– we have an afternoon ceremony in a historic greenhouse. The floor is marble tile and realitively smooth
– the BMs are all in green silk chiffon cocktail dresses, the dudes in black tuxes, no vest/cummberbund, straight tie
– the vibe we’re going for is updated classic. Think Kate Spade aesthetic, only more monochromatic.
– I will be wearing a blusher down the aisle (my dad will flip it back at the alter), so I need either a drop veil, or a two layer style.
– I love the idea of a long veil, but I hate how they look once the blusher is flipped back
– I will be wearing my hair up
– I will probably go for plain over embellished any day of my life. So no ribbon edge veil, absolutely no lace, no crystals, etc.
– I’ve only tried on a two layer veil, with the bottom layer fingertip length (35″) and the top/blusher layer elbow length (29″) with a pencil edge. Unless someone has a good arguement for something else, that’s what I’ll go with.
My inspiration board for the whole shin dig
My dress (this is the sample):
In my dress, with a blusher on (my mom only took pictures of my face when I picked my dress up. So annoying) the day I picked it up (and my dress needs to be steamed…badly). This is the fingertip length bottom layer with the elbow length top layer, only with a 1/4″ ribbon edge:
and in my dress, with a single-tier elbow length veil with a pencil edge on:
(and I’m planning on doing approximately 1 million push ups before wedding day. Ugh)
