Ya totally check down in AZ! I think it was Miss Oyster that went to a bridal fabric store in TX and had luck finding the perfect laces that she wanted! It doesn’t hurt to try.

That’s absolutely beautiful! Very similar to the Saffron too. I love the way the flowers are spaced out rather than all bunched in one long strip – it looks like they’re floating.

From the piece you’ve shown, it seems to go from smaller pieces at the left to larger pieces at the right. If that’s the case for the whole of the fabric, I think you should have the smaller ones at the top of the veil near your face and the larger near the bottom. (I have no idea why… it just seems like it could work!)

Do you have the lace yet? If so, hold it up and see what it looks like. That will help give you an idea of how it would work as a veil and whether the lace will be too big.

Oh I see! The arrangement looks great as it is. I prefer the delicacy it gets from the tiny pearls but either would work. What kind of jewellery are you wearing? If you’re wearing pearls it might be a nice way to tie them in. If you’re wearing crystals / diamantes / diamonds etc you could perhaps have little crystals instead.

Beautiful!

With the simplicity of your dress you’re really open to any kind of jewellery. I think if you wear a pearl necklace then having some pearls in your earrings would tie them in well… or having a pearl necklace with some sort of sparkle to tie in the diamond earrings.
