I didn’t wear a veil…I think I looked bridal πŸ™‚

I think you look gorgeous. Do you want to wear a veil? I didn’t wear one for many reasons, so I just decided not to.

It’s a personal decision!!

It’s so perfect for you. I love the flower, it’s like it was made for your dress. Gorgeous! πŸ™‚ I think not having a veil will be just as beautiful–just wearing a white dress says “bridal” to me.

Yep, you look plenty bridal! My best friend wore a rhinestone headband because she said that veils looked funny on her. Another friend of mine wore a flower accessory and looked perfectly bridal.

Like you, I have an all lace gown and will be wearing only a hair flower. It isn’t about what you do or do not wear; it’s the smile on your face and the way your groom looks at you that makes.you a bride.

I’m not a veil person either (and currently trying not to be furious with my Maid/Matron of Honor and mom for talking me into buying a traditional veil!!) but one thing you might consider if you are worried you won’t look bridal enough is adding a bit of french or russian netting (like birdcages are made of) around your flower.  Just a bit!!  Here is an example:

that being said I think that yes, you will still be bridal πŸ™‚

@agirlwithdreams7: Well nobody else will be wearing a stunning white gown like you so its obvious you’re the bride. And if you stick with the flower, Alfred Angelo has one’s that are beautiful and are about $50. Still crazy, but better than $90!

But personally–I considered only wearing a flower but decided against it. I would have regretted not wearing a veil. I chose a raw edged one tier chapel veil. Very bridal and you can still see the back of my dress. Have you tried on any lace edged mantilla veils? That would look gorgeous with your dress, and would be sheer in the back. You could wear it further back on your head so it doesn’t overwhelm your face. Just a thought πŸ™‚

I’m not wearing anything on my head. I am working hard on growing my hair out and keeping it nice so I can have it down! I won’t cover it up!

That being said, I think not having a veil is modern look that allows you to look like yourself on you wedding day. Go for it!

@agirlwithdreams7: You look gorgeous and definitely look like a bride!  Love the back of the dress on you. 

 

There are tutorials on here how to make flowers like that and you can also buy one on etsy or ebay for way cheaper.
