I lied.

I will not be talking about local venues today. I got distracted.

Fear not. The only local venue we have seriously considered is one I already featured! I will give you more news as I have it.

Mkay. So, veils.

This is one of the many areas of bridedom that have thousands of options. The nice thing about this is that I'm sure to find a style that works for me. The not-so-nice thing is that I have absolutely no expertise in this matter.

According to the wedding channel's website, there are twelve different styles of veil. This might seem daunting, but since I plan to try lots of things on and choose whichever one makes me giggle the most I'm not worried.

Oh, David's Bridal called last night and will call again in the spring to set up dress shopping excursion. More news on that (for you maids, esp.) when it's relevant. I'm thinking June.

Anyway- pretty pictures of veils!

I really like the "my hairstyle is oozing this pretty fabric" way that many veils are pinned, but I kind of want a little bit of sparkle or a flower of some sort.

Birdcage veils are both stylish and fun, but eliminate the fun/major emotional moment of Dad flipping the front part of the veil up after the walk down the aisle. Maybe for the reception?

By the way... Boy asked if I was going to have two dresses: as in a different dress for the reception. Isn't that nuts? I mean, I know that it's hip and it would definitely be fun, but did I really just hear the Groom suggest spending more money for the sake of fashion?!


Mmm. So putting aside the fact that this is a simply beautiful shot (clicky the picture to go to the site), I don't like edging on veils. It reminds me too much of my little first communion veil, and I was horribly sick on my first communion. It's also the first time I encountered Nick, and who wants to remember that?

Love hair. Love veil. This image is a keeper. My only question is about how this works when the blusher part of the veil is flipped up as you walk down the aisle. Does it flip over the hair? Doesn't that violate the laws of gravity?

I Adore the drama of this. I am a little bit attached to a fingertip veil, but something about the cascading fabric of a cathedral length veil is mesmerizing. Her hair looks like a muffin, but the veil is gorgeous!

What do you think?

Not a fan of the birdcage veil at all. It looks like your face is in a tiny fabric jail and trying to break out.

Hmm. You don't like the Mantilla veil either, right?

I think that second to last veil doesn't have a blusher. I think that's generally the way those work. And I'm right with ya there on the edging of them. I think it looks a little strange. Veils in my mind are ethereal and edging just takes away from their mystery.

Anyways! Veils are fun!

Its hard to say what will work with it until you know what it will look like and the detail on it.
