A Very Special Veil

One of the most important details of the wedding, for me, is my veil.  I was named after my Mom's best friend, Donna Jean, and she passed away from Cancer in 1983, they were only 23 years old.  I was born in August of 84 and even though I never met her, my Mom always says we are so much alike.  Donna's brother, Bobby, is my Godfather and has always been there for me in every huge stage of my life.  When John and I got engaged, the first thing I wanted to do was ask Bobby and the rest of the siblings if I could use her veil.  Without any hesitation Bobby and the others agreed.  I really love that she will be a part of me on my big day.

It is, however, very dated and I am just going to make some minor changes.  It just needs to be cleaned up and I am going to cut it since we will be walking around Golf grounds for pics and I would not want it to get ripped up.  Thankfully, my veil lady is going to save every piece and we might do something else with the rest of the fabric.

I plan on having Bobby put on my veil so we can share that moment.

The first pics are the first stage of the veil (it used to have a cap on it and it was very long)
