Considering the beach and how windy it will be, I would probably skip the veil- for the reasons you mentioned.  WHAT A ROCKING DRESS, by the way!

Yea, I agree. I would probably forgo the veil. You could do a really nice headband, tiara, or other hair accessory if you wanted to bling up the hair, though.

I think you should try a veil on with your gown, or you will always wonder what it would have looked like. I was dead set against wearing a veil, but my kids wanted me in one, so I gave in and tried one on. Needless to say, I fell in love with the look and made my veil. You can always have the ceremony set up so that the wind will blow the veil toward you, instead of to the side or back of you. I love the pictures of brides with the veil flowing out behind them.

I would wear a veil with ruffles, like this one:

With that dress I’d say no veil and even no hair flower.  The dress is gorgeous and very statement, it’d be hard for anything to compete.  But do try on some veils just to get an idea satisfy curiousity.

I think your idea of the flower is better – fits the setting more and won’t get in the way. A veil might be too much and you’d worry about it. Or you could get a veil if you find one you love and wear it just for the ceremony?

I love how long cathedral veils look, especially in the wind! However, your dress is so incredibly gorgeous, I don’t know if anyone will even notice your veil!

Gorgeous dress!! Keep it simple (and wind resistant) with a hair flower or headband. You’ll look amazing rocking that awesome dress no matter what you choose 🙂

I know everyone is telling you to lose the veil… but= the veil really assumes a very intangible emotional presence on THAT day.  The symbolic meaning is very powerful, even if you don’t acknowledge it superficially.  When he lifts the veil, it is like you are saying that whatever I’ve held back from you before, now I give to you freely.  It’s very powerful.
