- Wedding: May 2009
Ok all you loyal bee readers, I’m looking for some veil advice. I’m getting married at the end of May 2009, and I bought my dress at a sample/once-wed store back in June. At the time, I was not really concerned with a veil, I figured I’d order it at my first dress fitting in March. However, a co-worker mentioned that it takes a few months for a veil to arrive after placing an order. So, I think I need to buy one sooner than that so I can have it for hair trials, fitting, etc. I live in the Chicago area and I’m looking for a long veil. I really like the Lori London cathedral-length fountain veil because of the way it frames a bride’s face, but I don’t know if I’ll love the price of it. I only plan to wear it for the ceremony and have hard time spending $400 on something that I’ll only wear once and for two hours. Can anyone suggest good places to shop for a veil in Chicago or online? I’ve seen that Izaac Mizrahi for Target makes a veil that’s only $24.99, has anyone bought this or seen it in person? Any help is greatly appreciated – thanks!!!
