Inspiration for your road to the altar

A Veil of Secrecy

December 12, 2007

Well, not really. But I couldn’t think of any other clever titles for this post that involved the word “veil.” Anyway – I’ve decided on a long veil! I was already leaning towards one, because I have fantasies of pictures like the one above. But when my Mom and I went to go pick up my dress I tried some on. When I put on the long veil with my dress, the woman at the boutique said “Oh wow, that’s such a classic look.” Sold. I decided to order from, seeing as how their prices are a fraction of what veils costs in the bridal salons. I decided on standard fullness, and chapel length. That way it just rests on the ground a little bit, and isn’t longer than my train. I ordered color samples from veilshop, and they arrived this week! Now it’s just a matter of taking the samples to my parent’s house to compare them to the dress….which, naturally, means I might have to try it on 75 more times. Here are some other pics that provided me with some inspiration for a long veil (one of which, I won’t say which one in case a some people are lurking, looks a lot like a certain someone’s dress):

    I love that top picture! I am leaning towards a long veil as well… if I wear one.

    Have fun with the all the trying on!

    At first I didn’t want to wear one either, Tara. Then when I tried a long one on w/my dress I was sold!

    Long veils all the way. They photograph beautifully and don’t chop up the lines of the gown. Great choice…and yes, of course you have to try it on 75 times. Totally normal:)
