Your veil looks lovely to me!  Anyone who would insult a bride to her face is not someone whose opinion I would listen to ๐Ÿ™‚

Your veil is lovely.  Try not to let her remarks get to you.  I’m wearing bright orange shoes under my dress…which I’ve already heard remarks about and I don’t care.  Why?  Because it’s what I want and I love it.

So, if it’s what you want to wear and if you love it…that’s all that matters.

I think your veil is beautiful!

I actually had negative comments at the store where I bought my dress. I loved my dress otherwise I would have walked out. My bridesmaids were on one side of the store and this guy that works in the bridal department told them that my colors were “tacky”. So my cousin who is my bridesmaid came over and told me what he said and I went off the handle.

I haven’t said anything to the owner of the shop yet, but I’m going to after my dress is done so he doesn’t do anything to it lol… maybe by then I will forget about it… but I thought that it was very rude and unnecessary. It’s supposed to be one of the most special times for a bride (buying her dress) and I think people should just keep their comments and opinions to themselves if it doesn’t make the bride feel special!

I would just forget about what they said to you though, I mean, if you feel beautiful and you love your veil that’s all that matters!

Oh gosh! I’m not even a fan of veils typically, but if you hadn’t had that custom made I would be bugging you for details! That’s just so gorgeous! Rock it, and don’t let her get you down too much :P.

I agree that was very rude of her. Although, I’m sure she probably thought she was giving you a compliment by saying you don’t need all the bling to look beautiful. In a backwards kind of way, it’s a compliment. You’re so beautiful that you don’t need anything extra.

However, this is the look you want. Your attire and your selections are what you’ve chosen for your special day and no one should say any crap about it unless you come right out and ask for their opinion!

I think your veil is lovely and unique. If I were wearing a veil I would want something special like yours also.

And for the record, as the bride, you should wear absolutely anything you want as long as you feel beautiful and special. If we’re lucky, we only get one day to wear something as over the top as a wedding gown and all the accessories that go with it!!!

your veil is lovely!  The bottom of it looks like stars – gorgeous.  Ignore her.  Just because it isn’t her taste she shouldn’t make disparaging comments about your attire (and frankly, if she doesn’t like that beautiful veil, she must not have very good taste ….)

@roxy821:  Some people just don’t know how to give compliments. They probably give them the same way they’ve always received them, and if you think about it, that’s kind of sad. Take her comments with a grain of salt and remember it’s your special day–not her’s–so her opinion doesn’t matter good or bad. And since you are only going to do this once, darn straight you should wear a crazy veil with all the crystals, and you’ll look gorgeous wearing it too!!!

Some people just don’t like the same styles. My mom hates mermaid dresses no matter how good I think they look. It’s just personal taste. Pink is my favorite color but my cousin says it makes her want to vomit. Regardless as a Bridesmaid or Best Man she will be wearing a pink dress on my wedding day ๐Ÿ™‚

This wasn’t about me, but… Before my sister’s wedding, my family and her Fiance family were all hanging out. Her Fiance made a comment: “Only whores wear red dresses”. My mom promptly said “I’ll be wearing a red dress at your wedding, do you think I am a whore?”

When will people learn to keep their mouths shut???

PS: My mom wore the red dress at the wedding and looked amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

And I love your veil. My veil is also my favorite part about my weddign day look. Sadly, I will have to take it off for the reception because it is cathedral length. That makes me a little sad

@Roxy, your veil is just lovely, I’m not wearing one, but I’d almost change my mind for yours!

And yes, my mother has been telling me for 6 months that if I insist on wearing colored shoes, my Fiance will turn around at the altar and not marry me.  And she says it in complete seriousness.

So of course I’m wearing red shoes! ๐Ÿ˜›
