My best friend wore an over the top cape to her wedding a few years back… she thought it was gorgeous & fun and now looking back she says it was the worst decision she made. She cringes at her wedding photos… "Why didn’t someone stop me from wearing that" is her common complaint. lol
Just make sure you really, really love it!

@doctorgirl – yep, your amazing dress is one of the pics that started me on this crazy "my dress is too boring" quest in the first place! 🙂
but @recessionista, I completely agree with this also. If I do wear it, I’ll probably only do so for part of the day, so there are pics with both it and a more normal veil, to avoid that possibility down the road!

I must add, according to the pics on the website, it doesn’t look nearly so wild from the front. Business in the front, party in the back, hehehe.

Greta- I’m flattered! That’s exactly what I’m doing… ceremony and some pictures, then bye bye crazy train, hello more traditional dress. It’s the best of both worlds!
Can’t wait to see photos. I think it’s fab!

I think it’s hilarious, if you’re a fun kind of girl I say go for it it comes off as windblown and tousled
what if you change into once the party factor kicks in all the booze is flowing and people are hitting the dancefloor, maybe keep it formal and simple in the beginning then let loose on the dance floor I think it’s wild!
makes you want to smile and think aw, this bride is fun and having the time of her life
do what your heart tells you

Hi Greta, I think we have the same dress (Vernice?) or at least I have a very similar Maggie. Though I do love it I have also worried it’s too plain! I think a wild vail is a great way to go. Personally I am doing a rather bold headpiece and fun jewelry. In regular life I usually wear simple clothes with statement accessories, so it worked well for me.
$20? Do it.

@crash – Mine is actually Katelynn (with the halter straps cut off), but it’s really similar!
Well, I’m pretty sure I’m going to try ordering it…the worst that can happen is that I’ll get a good $20 worth of a laugh when it gets here. 🙂 I’ll post real life pics then!

Omg that is so fun looking. I would totally wear it for at least part of the night. You’ve gotta have some pictures in that! I would just be afraid it would get annoying or get in the way if I wore it all night…

Rock it! I’m doing something similiar and had the same qualms at first (plain dress, feather fasciantor things in hair). Who makes the veil?

Personally I think it’s a little too nutty for ME but i’m a boring kind of lady. I’m trying to avoid "trends"
What about a fountain or waterfall veil? those are "couturE" and different. I thought they were called bubble veils and was only able to find the $550 one I loved, so I caved and bought a regular one. Boo i wanted a semi-fun one. It’s not as crazy as yours, but it’s an option if you want a more, er, wearable? veil? It looks difficult to move in, and it may mess up your hair!

I think you put it perfectly! Super fun and fabulous! Totally rock it!
My only suggestion would be to maybe take it off at the reception. You might get caught on a few things!

I LOVE that veil – Enjoy wearing it!
I saw it in a mag almost 2 years ago and cut it out and put it in my idea book. My ‘Lily’ veil evolved from that photo.
I love edgy veils. I have a couple "out there" ones http://www.artisticveil.com & fascinators on http://www.weddingwire.com, Dress & Attire, Tampa, FL area

personally, its not what i would choose…but if it makes you happy, its your day!!
have you ever thought about doing a veil with a bottom lace hem and/or and lace hem around your face? you can find plenty of cheaper veils with detail to them to spice up your gown.
the best thing to do is try some different ones on and see them in person!
