Before I got married, I never thought I'd wear a veil. It seemed stuffy to me, and not the least bit modern. But as my wedding got closer, I realized that I wouldn't feel like a bride without one. (I also realized that there are tons of really modern-looking styles to choose from!) So when the big day rolled around, I really went for it with a 15-foot long veil made from a single piece of super-sheer tulle. I love the way it trailed behind me as I walked down the aisle, and I thought it looked so pretty in photos.
Here's one of me with my dad-- it's one of my favorite moments!
If you're hemming and hawing over wearing a veil, just try a few on and see what you think! You might be surprised, like I was, to find something you love. One of my favorite sites for unique styles is Twigs & Honey. I think I'd go with this one, but there are lots more to choose from if that's not your thing. What do you think? To veil, or not to veil??
