Wedding Plans: the Veil!

 As you read yesterday I am back in Minnesota this weekend (where my wedding will be held) and I have lot things to do.  Two tasks on my list is my hair trial and dress fitting that I will share with you another time.  BUT because I was doing those two things I wanted to make sure to have a veil to try on with the dress and the hair.  I wanted to make sure what I had in mind would all work together.

 I found this great chart showing many of the different veil types(although I believe there to be many more).  I am planning on wearing a Cathedral length veil, no blusher and just placed at the back of my head under all my hair, since my hair will be up in some sort of fashion.  The cathedral veil is the longest of the veils and I'm hoping it will have a dramatic affect as I walk down the aisle inside the old church were we are getting married. 

 These two images are so beautiful and I can't wait to be one of those brides.  If you are wondering what you do with a veil that long during the reception I'll tell you that I plan on removing mine after some pictures.  I'll also have a hair piece (that is so gorgeous and I can't wait to show you) so I will have something in my hair for dinner and dancing.  

When I get back from my trip I'll give you all a full report of how it went.  I'll also work up a little DIY post as I made my veil (it actually took me about 20 mins).  Veils can cost an arm and a leg these days, but if you are trying to save and just want something simple, making your own is the way to go!

Have a good Memorial weekend everyone!

I kind of wish I would have worn a veil on my big day but I'm okay with the fact that I didn't. My gardenia was a nice touch for the head, ha ha.
