Inspiration for your road to the altar

My Veil is Here!

January 31, 2008

It arrived all wrapped up in this box, with an ivory bow tied around it. It’s harder than one would think to take a self portrait of a veil, and we don’t have a full length mirror (ridiculous, I know) so my options were limited. The few I tried to take over my head were down right frightening, so here are one of the veil alone and another of just the bottom:
I highly reccommend veilshop.com if you’re interested in something basic and don’t want to spend a fortune. The fabric swatches they sent were very easy to match to the dress, the veil looked exactly how I was hoping it would, and the shipping was incredibly fast. Wearing a veil was never really important to me & at the beginning of this process I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to have one at all. So even though I changed my mind I didn’t want something that was going to be overly fussy & I have no intentions of this becoming a family heirloom. I just wanted something simple, and this fits the bill!

On Sunday I was finally up for a little wedding talk, and my Mom and I actually wound up getting several things accomplished. One of which was ordering my veil! I’ve posted before about my desire for a long one, but I also don’t want one that is very full. Anyway, I ordered swatches from veilshop.com awhile ago and brought them with me to my parents house so we could compare them to the dress. The “light ivory” was a perfect match, and I got an e-mail today that the veil is already on it’s way to me! I’ll be sure to take pictures when it arrives, but for now here are some from their site:
