I’m looking for some guidance, Bees! I wasn’t even sure, in the beginning, that I wanted to wear a veil. However, I’ve decided that I totally love them. When we bought my dress, my dad & stepmom fell in love with a sparkly one, and I did too. So, we bought it (picture below; please excuse my ill-fitting, tag-showing sample dress). But, now I’ve also found a sparkly blusher. Can I wear both (layered)?! Or do I need to choose one? I don’t mind the extra sparkle. 🙂
Here’s the one we bought, follwed by the blusher inspiration (sorry about the huge pics):

They are both beautiful! I love the blusher too!! As for wearing them both? I have no idea..Have you tried it with both to see??

They’re lovely, but those crystals can end up looking like black spots in some photos.

@Amsy28: I haven’t tried it on with both, thought I’m dying to see what it looks like! I haven’t ordered the blusher yet, though.
@SpecialSundae: I’ve heard that, too (of course only after I bought the veil!), but I’ve also heard that photographers, if they know about it, can still get great shots…I’ll have to discuss that with the photographer, I guess….
Anyone had great results from sparkly veils in photos?

I like the one you bought — it looks great. The blusher is pretty too but I’d just stick with what you already have.

We are having an outdoor ceremony on or near the beach…does that affect anyone’s decision? I didn’t think about it being windy for a regular veil…. 🙁

I love the one you bought! I’m not a fan of blushers really so I would just go with the one you have…. I wouldn’t do both thou. I think it actually looks pretty to see veils blowing in the wind! I’m having a dw wedding outside in st Thomas but not actually on the beach and I am wearing a veil too!

I love the veil especially because its sparkly :o) I also like the blusher but you have to have a VERY specific face shape/look to pull them off. I will say 99.9% of the time I see a blusher or birdcage veil they look pretty bad on the person but when it looks good its spot on. You should post a pic of the blusher if you can so we can see what u look like. I do not however think you should wear both, eek that might be a little much….

I’m thinking just the veil. The two together will look a bit 80’s!!
