Thanks for the advice bees…
Thanks for the advice bees…
I’m going to have to agree with PP’s. You chose this theme, so now you have to deal with the consequences. It would be like choosing a Rennaisance theme, and then getting annoyed by people wearing floor length gowns. If you didn’t want people wearing veiled hats, you should have chosen another decade.
K Thanks ladies…
I think it’s sweet and adorable that she’s put so much thought into her outfit, and that she’s making such an effort to dress in a theme-appropriate way. Plus, it sounds like she’s quite excited about her outfit, and how often do you get to feel pretty or excited about clothes at that age? Try to find some joy in this. She may not be around for very long. Imagine how guilty you would feel if you hurt her feelings by expressing reservations about this.
Also: she’s your grandma. No one is going to mistake her for the bride, and her hat-veil will not divert even the tiniest bit of attention from you.
Oh she dresses crazy all the time.. She’s in the Red Hat stuff… She is definately put a lot of time into my wedding. She’s invited her WHOLE family. Even aunts, uncles, and 4th cousins. Honestly, it wouldn’t matter if I talked to her about not liking the veil idea. I’ve told her to stop inviting people bc I can’t afford it, we’re paying for everything ourselves, and bc we are over capaacticy for our reception hall. She keeps telling me that not everyone will come, but she is my step dad’s mother, and forgets that my biological father’s family is invited too.. It’s kinda been drama. I think the veil was just the icing on the cake… I’m over it. you all have put it in perspecitive
Wearing fascinators with netting is more common in the UK. I would verify that it’s going to be non-white and then I would probably still not worry about since it’s Grandma and nobody is going to confuse Grandma for you, the bride.
Unless you really, really object to the veil, let your grandmother wear it. I mean, she’s following your theme…even if you both wear similar birdcage veils, everyone’s going to still know that you’re the bride.
I mean…it’s your grandma. I wouldn’t worry too much about it.
I wouldn’t worry about it! Hats with little vails were the style of the time. She won’t look out of place and no one is going to confuse the two of you (or you with any other guest for that matter).
You wanted a ’50s styled wedding, that’s what your getting. I would wear one of the little hat veils things if I were invited to a 50s themed wedding. It was the style of that era.
I voted certainly not before I read that it was your grandmother. Grandmothers are legends, they should wear whatever they want 🙂
