Should I get a Veil?

ok, I'm at a crossroads....it seems my worst fear has happened, I HAVE TO MANY IDEAS!!!! lol seriously...but I'll save that for another post...


today I want to focus on hair...should i get a pink veil? I still want to do a boho headbeand though....sooo confused...or maybe just some sheer pink fabric to take pics with instead.


if i get a headband it will be something like this only pink:

Why not both? 


Do the veil for the ceremony and the headband for the party after!

I absolutely love Kate Moss's veil. I actually think it blends the two looks together quite nicely! But I know what you mean about being tossed up. GL!

Leno- totally would however, this isn't for my wedding lol we tied the knot 5 years ago ;) were taking a road trip to nova scotia and doing an anneversary photo shoot to mark the occasion. It's an enchanted secrete garden- meets Alice in wonderland- meets world of fairys inspired shoot... Check out my bio for pics of my dress and inspirations.

So everyone knows- I didn't wear a veil for my wedding... Back then it just wasn't me, but now I LOVE them! And I live these beautiful photos I see with the bride and groom under the veil together... Some veil shoots blowing in the wind with the sunlight filtering threw

Do you think maybe I could do a veil at the back, attached to a headband with the flowers placed at both sides maybe... Is that overkill?

Well then I would definetly do the veil so I could "get it out of my system" lol


You could also do them both at the same time as you said. Depending of the veil it could wouk out beautifully!

I absolutely LOVE both - She1 has a great idea!  Why not combine both?!  They're absolutely gorgeous and I would have such a hard time choosing!

I say both if you really want it!! It looks like she has both on in the 2nd picture...you could have it for the ceremony, get a few pics and then take the veil off. You almost have to try the pieces you want together and see if it's too much or not. More than one bride I know, myself included, brought pieces with her the day of that she didn't end up wearing. Nothing wrong with that either way!

I agree with the ladies to do both if that is your hearts desire, but as Sam suggested (SDonisi), do a trial to make sure! I originally wanted a tiara and I wasn't going to wear a veil. I had a headband one made and hated it! I tried to bring myself to wear it because I had it made, but I couldn't do it! Once I chose the headpiece I really wanted, I had to have the veil. Just made me feel like such a bride! I am so excited about your trip and pictures!

I love veils...I think they are so romantic and you can do really nice shots with it.

I had a similar dilemma...I ended up with a veil for the ceremony and a hair comb for the reception; it was a fun compromise!

Okay, definitely try both of them.  But I will say that Kate Moss's veil is a beautiful compromise of the two ideas.

Thank you Sooo much for your opinions ladies! I want to do both!!! Its settled

My mom is traveling around India right now, I asked her to keep an eye out , but said I wanted something long and not too ornate. Figured she could find something cheap soooo She just got visited a part of India that hand makes fabrics and bought a very pale pink silk and had them make it a veil for me!! No idea what it looks like, but I'm sure it's beautiful. I have to see it when she gets back, but I may add some flowers to it or attach it to a headband depending on how it's sewn.YAY!!! So excited to see it!!
