You can go with the 5″, if you think you would be more comfortable with that width; however, I have to agree with your designer that a 3.5″ would look better.

I agree with you I would like the 5″ I personally don’t care for veils that are too poofy, they are beautiful on everyone I’ve seen but for me, I can’t pull it off.

@Evie19: Yes. I went with a 5″ for mine, but I didn’t need the shape. Here is a link where you can kind of see the veil. I am waiting for all of my photographs to be done from the photographer before I can post better pictures (the pictures are print screened from a video that my uncle took with his iPhone).

@Evie19: Thank you πŸ™‚

Yes, I do think for the stiffer silk veils, the 3.5″ is the way to go.

@Evie19: I have seen one in person and it was really pretty; it just wasn’t the look that I was going for. I wanted something more flowey. If done right, they can be really elegant. For me, they are a little stiff. If you want something that will keep it’s shape, for the most part, then this type of veil will work for you. If you want something that lays a little flatter and will flow in the breeze, I suggest a lighter material.

@Evie19: I think you will be happy with your choice and, yes, it will still have a soft feel; it will just hold it’s shape better than a softer fabric. I think you will be fine and are making the right choice for your wedding.

@Evie19: Wow!!! You are very welcome πŸ™‚

I would love to see the veil when it is complete. From what you are describing it is going to be very beautiful. Your desiger is putting a lot of hard work in with attaching all of those crystals, but I love the way it is going to look (I am picturing it in my head).

And, I would be dancing around in it too πŸ™‚
