Wow that veil is gorgeous! I think it looks fine where it is but If you think it looks awkward you may want to move it a bit more forward on your head. Maybe look at the veilKate moss wore for her wedding for inspiration?

 

P.s. Do you mind me asking what seller off of etsy you got it from?

I’m having a hard time figuring out what you mean by “bumps” (unless you’ve pinned them down for the photos?), but I do think the veil should be farther forward.  I would try it right at the line of your bangs.

Oh, wait — you mean the bumps on the veil, as opposed to your hair?  Yeah, I think if you move the veil forward on your head, those will look right.

Sounds counterintuitive, but: Maybe try it even further down?  My inclination would actually be for it to sit just about where your natural hairline is.

I was just going to say what you said: Lots of tendrils of your hair in front, and pull the veil as far front as you can. I LOVE your veil!

My grandmother had a full juliet cap that fit her head and nearly covered her forehead, but that was the style in 1925. Kate Moss has done the best job (as far as I’m concerned) of updating the look. I loooove that Etsy seller who sells this:

She is wearing it how it was meant to be worn. Have you tried it with makeup and styled hair? Give it a shot.

woohoo!  this is the type of veil i wa going for and possibly making (i started but halted).  I was going to wear my hair down, Rita Hayworth style but a little more relaxed.  I see what you mean about the bumps but I don’t think it looks bad or weird.  In fact for mine I was going to put little flowers on the side so to give it a more vintage and fun look as well.  But I get wanting to pin them down.  I think you can’t go wrong either way, it looks lovely as it is.  Let me see if I can find some pics of mine but keep in mind that this is only pinned together and not finished at all!  p.s.  i might make it cathedral length-oh my!With some flowers too-just clipped on would likely go smaller! and would wear it farther back on the head like you.

ssorry for massive photos, hope this helps you a bit.

also, try a little color in your lipstick to avoid the matron vibe!
