I want to see pictures too!!!

I’m wearing a tight dress (mermaid style or maybe it’s q fit and flare.. I can’t tell) and will be wearing a SUPER long custom made cathedral veil. I didn’t realize just how long it was until I was telling my future sister in law. It came in 3 meters but I wanted something longer… OMG so the lady said 5 meters and I said yeah!! I also requested one tier instead of 2. 

MY future SIL starts telling me “that’s a lot of feet”. We looked it up and it’s 16 feet. ๐Ÿ˜ณ We couldn’t stop laughing. 

I guess I think I’m Kate Middleton? Yaaaaasssssssss.

chrissybee :  I prob should have looked up 3 meters in feet, which is 9… That probably would had been plenty but “3 meters” just didn’t sound as wow as “5 meters” lol. 

My dress doesn’t have a very long train which I had wanted so bad so I wanted a longer veil.. but man! I’m only wearing it for ceremony obviously, so we shall see. 

I told my fiancé and he was like, who’s going to carry that around? ๐Ÿ™„

chrissybee :  I’ve always dreamed of wearing a long veil.  I didn’t care what the dress looked like LOL.  However during my first dress fitting, Future Mother-In-Law convinced me that I didn’t want a long veil to cover the back of my dress.  I was also wearing a tight, fit & flare/mermaid style dress with lots of drama at the bottom.  I guess I agreed with her and the short veil was cute.

I ended up not buying a dress that day and when I did Future Mother-In-Law wasn’t with me.  I still chose a fit & flare but the bridal consultant put me in this GORGEOUS long veil. It still looked amazing with the dress.  So in the end, I’m getting what I really wanted!

I don’t know how long it’ll be in the end since I just ordered everything a month ago but even standing on the pedestol at the bridal shop, it was longer than the train of my dress.  See my post here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/any-real-brides-try-on-maggie-sottero-malina-spring-2016-yet/page/3

chrissybee :  This is the only pic I have on this computer that’s full length. I LOVED having a cathedral length veil and a form fitting dress.

I loved my long veil and tight dress combo!  And it was a last minute switch (like 2 days before the wedding) from a fingertrip to a cathedral veil ๐Ÿ™‚

Not sure if mine qualifies for tight although it felt it to me (fit n flare). I’m in love with my 2 tier Swarovski crystal cathedral veil. We even ordered it with another 6 inches added so it really went past my train nicely.

(This was before we added extra length/crystals to the veil.
