There aren’t any pics Frown 

But, I am in the same spot you are. I just got my dress and while we were shopping my mom, Maid/Matron of Honor, and bridemaids were all upset that I wouldn’t be wearing a veil.  I have been looking at different headbands and flowers for my hair too. I would suggest looking on Etsy…they have such a large varuety of artists!

I didn’t wear a veil – just a headband.  I bought it off etsy.  There are TONS of great options on there.

I’m not wearing a veil either.

Also, I’m dying to see a picture of your dress now. Can you try posting them again?

I’m not doing a veil either – I had some beautiful hair pins made for my hair :o)

If I was having the big Catholic church wedding how I orginally planned, then I was going to do a long Cathedral length veil – but that idea got nixed!

Check http://www.etsy.com for beautiful hair pins, clips, birdcage veils, etc…..relatively inexpensive as well!

I really like your earrings. The green is lovely, and I wouldn’t wear a veil with them either. 

I’m doing a large flower/feather clip in my hair that is pretty large (but looks great!) and no veil. I bought it my bridal salon for about $125, and have seen similar ones on etsy for around $50-$200.

I am not wearing a veil.  I think my mom and sister are disappointed, but I have no desire to wear one.

I really love your dress!  I agree that it would be a shame to hide the back when there is so much detail there.  Also, I love the punch of color your earrings bring to the outfit.

No veil here, either.  I agree with the Etsy recommendation.  There are some gorgeous handcrafted items there.  Also, you can put a request out for a custom-designed piece, too.

I didn’t wear a veil and at DAvids Bridal everyone gave me a super hard time about it (and said I’d look like a Quinceanera) but at the wedding no one even seemed to notice it.

Definitely don’t want to wear a veil. My friends and family don’t understand why and say I have to have one. But I don’t care. I would rather show off the back of my dress more and not have my hair ruined by the veil (since I would want to take it off after the ceremony anyways if I were to wear one). 

Oh by the way… love the dress and the earrings. That’s going to look stunning!

I love love your dress! what is the name of it??? I think it is fine if you are not wearing a veil—for me I will wear one because I will get married in a church and I want to look a little modst out of respect since I know I want a strapless dress. where is your ceremony location?
