My dress is entirely champagne with pearl beading on the straps and the empire waist. I opted not to wear a veil and instead, got a comb to keep my hair away from my face. Im 75 days away from getting married and am now worried I will not look "bridey" enough. I was so against being a typical bride that Im concerned my wardrobe choices were poor.
How can I look more bridey??

You can’t look any more “bridey” in that wedding dress! It’s beautiful! You don’t have to be wearing a pure white dress and a big veil to look like a bride anymore, and you definetly don’t want to do that if that’s not the look you were going for.

The dress is gorgeous and very bride-y! I don’t think you need to worry at all. Are you having a second thought on having a veil? How about a birdcage veil that can be attached to your comb? or, a big fluffy feather?

Can we see a picture of your hair comb? I don’t think not wearing a veil makes you look less "bridey." I think hair combs are very elegant!

I agree, you’ll definitely look like a bride!

Don’t worry, the fancy light colored dress will convey that you are not a guest, but the bride. There is no minimal bridal threshold, you ARE the bride… you will look bridal. If you want to add to your look to be more bridal, you can still do a veil or tiara, there is time. Just dont feel like you have to. Its a beautiful dress.

I think the dress is wonderful! I think if you have your hair done you’ll look just bridey enough!-

Thank you so much for your encouragement. Below is the comb I bought.
@ carri38707 – a birdcage veil! I forgot about those. I will think about that.
You guys are right – Im the bride… that’s as bridal as I have to be.

I have to agree with what all the other Bee’s have said. There is no doubt you will look 100% bridal with or without a viel.

I like your choice with the dress/comb. However, it’s not too late to change your mind and buy a veil.

i love your dress!! are you worried because it is champagne color or because of the (non) veil? i think it looks super bridal already, and i think champagne dresses are beautiful!
if you really are worried about it, have a back up veil to wear just in case.
