When I started planning for our wedding last February I was fairly certain that I didn't want a veil. In fact, I guess you could even say that I was anti-veil.
But then I sorta fell for the short and chic birdcage. Loved it for my bridal portraits this past summer! I dug the flower in my hair too. Yet - dare I say it - I was really really falling for long romantic veils.
So I asked Cindy, the designer of Fascinating Creations, if she would make me a chapel length veil. I adored working with her Etsy shop last summer when I was looking for a birdcage...she was just such a sweetheart! And my birdcage was made so lovingly...and she wanted to make sure it was perfect (which it was.)
I did a lil bit of research on veil lengths because I wanted a long flowy one, but I didn't want a ridiculously long one.
via hereSo Cindy requested some measurements from me. I measured from the top of my head, down the center of my back to where I would like it to fall (wearing shoes.) The standard lengths for the Ballet length and Chapel length veils typically have a standard width of veil, 108"...with the length being 56" and 75" - 105" respectively.
I wonder what it will feel like to wear a veil. I am excited! And nervous. I think the nerves come from actually looking like a real bride. Me. A bride. In 5ish months. Holy moley.
