Gorgeous!  I love the train!  That’s so wonderful that you’ll be wearing a family heirloom.

That is absolutely gorgeous!  And it’s awesome that you’ll be wearing a family dress.  I think a short (shoulder-length) veil would be beautiful, and very 50’s 🙂

WOW. Love it. Just love it.

Definitely short veil – a birdcage would be beautiful.

I’m so jealous!  It’s great that you get to wear an heirloom.  You should look to see if there are photos of what either of your grandmothers wore and get a veil similar to theirs.  Still, I think a bridcage or even feathers would be fab.

That dress is awesome. You should totally rock the retro look with a short veil (blusher?). My friend wore a vintage 50s dress for her wedding and it looked fabulous. She had found it a year before in a vintage shop and when she got engaged, she went back and they still had it stored in the back of the store!

Love the shoes, too!

I agree. We need to see it on. Once we do than it will be so much easier to choose a veil!
