Yes but usually when I go see things in person or try them on, my original feeling comes back of not wanting it. Still I have to go see that for myself.

I agree with the PP. Things look beautiful on models and when I try them on I realize it’s not going to work for me.

It is a beautiful veil for sure, but I think you just need to remember why you didn’t want one in the first place!  Plus, I don’t know that it would really match your dress…it might, but I wouldn’t risk a custom order if you don’t know because you can’t see it in person first!  I agree though…damn that marketing!  Those pics are stunning! (And so are you!)

I went on and on about not wanting a veil.  When I picked up my dress everyone kept telling me to try one.  I tried a birdcage, which looked horrible on me.  That was the only veil I thought I’d even remotely like.  Then I tried on a fingertip length veil and I loved it.  And now my Future Mother-In-Law is being wonderful and making me a veil since the one I fell in love with was $400 and I was having trouble finding one comparable.  I even bought a flower for my hair so now I guess that’ll just be for the reception.

I think that veil would look lovely with your dress.  I can’t see the gowns that it’s pictured with very well, but they don’t look angular to me.

That said, I think you need to stay true to your original vision.

I recently experienced this same thing. This is my vision of how I want to look on my wedding day:

And then someone else posted this, and I completely love the look:

I think we look at so many ideas, that we lose focus of our original vision and buy into something that we might not have otherwise considered. Of course, that is the goal of advertising, to separate us from our money.
