Bride Style: To Veil or Not To Veil.

Choosing a veil. Or do I even wear one? I had a hard time deciding this as I wasn't sure I wanted a traditional look. However, once I found my dress and the overall theme came together, I thought a veil would look terribly romantic with the setting and the gown. Once I decided to wear one, I knew that I would want something vintage-looking, like my dress.

I chose an elbow length mantilla lace veil in cream. It was beautifully designed by Rohm, a talented Etsy designer. It matched the color and fabric of my dress perfectly and since I pinned my hair back (in the last moments!) I just pinned the veil right below my crown and and laid perfectly over my shoulders.

If you decide to wear a veil and are not sure which style is right for you, take a look at this
list from WeddingChannel. It is very detailed and has illustrations of every type of length and style veil.
