    Well, wow.  Your mom spent $400? WOWZERS!  Is the purchase undoable?  Can you find out?  Cuz $40 is a way better deal…

    Can you return or sell the $400 veil? Veils are way overpriced, so i think $40 from Etsy sounds great and you probably won’t be able to tell a difference

    @Future Mrs Soria:  Hmmmmm. Can we see pictures? Maybe your just being critical? Can you talk to your Mom about it?

    I’ve seen people wear veils that weren’t as wide as their dress… I think it looks fine. If it’s bothering you that much and it won’t hurt your moms feelings I’d just get the other veil to put your mind at ease and feel completely beautiful on your special day.

    I would use the one your mum bought you, she will probably be hurt if you re-sell it and I’m sure nobody will notice.

    If it were me, I would definitely wear the veil my mom bought. It will probably mean the world to her to see you in it and know she spent a precious amount of money on it just for you to wear on your wedding day. I think there’s a place and time to sweat the details, and there is definitely a place and time to realize what is most important – our relationships. If it were me, I’d tell my mom I loved it, it’s the perfect gift, and then I’d stop thinking about it. Besides, in the end, very few photos are going to show the entire ensemble anyhow. And, someday years from now when you look back on your wedding photos, you’ll be glad you wore the veil your mom bought. I think if you switch it out and have a “talk” with your mom about it, you may always have a little twinge of “I wish I hadn’t done that.” During the last year of my wedding planning, I’ve had a few panic moments, and I did and said things I wish I could take back, because after all the dust had settled, none of it mattered as much as the people it affected.

    You’re going to look BEAUTIFUL no matter what, and your mom is going to love it! 🙂
