My veil came in! I'm so excited!
(And Daryl, if you are reading this, STOP RIGHT HERE! I'm about to describe my veil and dress! LOL)
I ordered it online at the Veil Shop. I had read about the Veil Shop in a bridal magazine--and on the website I loved how (1) I could order samples of the colors which is how I was able to pick the PERFECT shade and (2) I could sort of "custom" make my veil (length, color, trim, etc.). Oh and (3) not spend a freakin' arm and a LEG, and my firstborn, on a veil that I only plan on wearing a couple stinkin' hours!
I went very simple and short. My dress is a champagne-colored (almost light gold-ish) princess-y dress (because after all, I AM a princess!!!) and I knew that a crazy head piece and veil would be WAY too much. So I chose a light gold colored veil with a thin gold trim at the end (it's very thin trim...and the veil color is light...so don't think big and gold and gaudy! LOL) and the length is 20" in length. I plan on wearing it very low on the back of my head (underneath whatever hairstyle I have for my hair...I am contemplating a partial up-do...curled but only "up" on the sides...I don't look great with all my hair up, in my opinion!) .
I also saw on the same site a pretty comb/clip that I might get to wear in my hair (I know it's hard to see the picture but the description on the site is as follows:
This comb hair accent is heavily embellished with features ivory freshwater pearls and Swarovski rhinestones on a gold frame. The design measures approximately 4" in length and 1 1/4" in width, and it is attached to a 1 1/2" metal comb. While I absolutely LOVE the look of pretty tiaras/head pieces, I wanted a more simple look that wouldn't seem too flashy when paired up with my dress. What do you think of it? I even thought of just doing a couple fresh flowers in my hair instead of getting a clip, but, I have NO IDEA yet what I'm doing about flowers. I'm only getting bouquets and boutonnieres (no flower centerpieces for the table...can't afford it!) so I have not even really thought about what type of flowers or WHERE to get them yet. I'm SO not a party-planner so all these little details will be the death of me!!
