So I have decided to devote different days to different subjects! For example, WEDDING WEDNESDAY! I know, I know it's pretty exciting... wait until you see what Friday is going to be! For my first Wedding Wednesday post I would like to talk about a little thing called the veil. I have gone back and forth about veils for a long time. I originally thought I didn't want one. But then I saw my beautiful fiancé's sad face. Ohhhhhh Sad Sad Panda....
I have no idea where I found this picture so if I need to site this source please let me know!
Also, when I was trying on wedding dresses, the veil always added an extra sense of "I am a BRIDE" opposed to "I am going to a red carpet event in white". So I began to rethink the veil. I am still not a fan of huge veils that overpower. To me they look very dated. But I find most traditions in weddings to be pretty dated.
Which brings me to the birdcage veil. I love love love the birdcage veil. It's modern, but vintage at the same time. Just my style! Modern + Vintage = ME
But to take the birdcage to the next level, I think I am going to go with a veil that is in a tulle opposed to open net because it will complement my dress more. And wait until you see the dress! I know, the suspense is killing you! So I am thinking about going with a veil like this pretty lady.
This is from Sara Gabriel. Isn't it pretty? I like that it is still dramatic and elegant without being very long. Hopefully with a veil like this one, there will be no more sad panda face.
