my veil came

and it's exactly like I pictured it would be! I was smiling soooo suuuuper big as I rushed into the bathroom, closed the door behind me and stuck it on top of my head. I was giddy with a goofy toothy grin, twirling in the mirror. Yes. I was twirling.

I am enamored with this veil.

It's still strange to me that I ended up really wanting a veil in the first place. A part of me is slightly embarrassed about wanting a veil. (Why is that?!) I think I spent so much time convincing myself that my wedding style is relaxed, that I didn't want to make a big fuss out of what I looked like...that it was OK if I didn't buy into the traditional bride "stuff." And yet, here I am with a glorious veil? Am I a sell out?

No. I'm not a sell out. Girl wants a veil. On my wedding day, I'll wear what I want. And I won't be apologetic for being a silly girl, or playing into a childhood fantasy. I'll just smile...and twirl.... and feel fabulous.

I had my veil custom created by Fascinating Creations. Cindy, the designer, is wonderful!

  1. I can't wait to see it in pictures! Don't worry about wanting a veil, there's something very theatrical about them, I love them!

  2. You know what's funny? I didn't wear a veil, yet I always imagined myself in one. It does seem to emphasize the "ceremonial" and "serious" aspect of getting married. And they are pretty.

  5. You're so cute. Your I'm-so-happy-I'm-almost-giddy posts always make me smile. =]
    And no, you're not a sellout. Wearing a veil does not make you anything near a sellout. You still are doing a very earth-friendly, non-fussy, mountain wedding.

  6. Aw, great! I'm still on the fence, but I think I'm starting to lean more toward wearing a veil. I'm like you, it is a bit of a childhood thingy.

  9. Definitely not a sell out. I have a good friend whose personal mission is the tell all the brides she knows that it is OK to wear a veil if they want to. She didn't wear one, but really wanted to and regretted it. So wear it if you want to! :)

  11. i have similar veil feelings... i kinda want to wear my mom's gorgeous cathedral length veil (see: http://www.emilyseyelive.com/2009/12/nearly-wed-adventures-in-out-of-town.html) but it feels too over the top for the low-key, outdoor shindig i'm planning. its so pretty though! sigh... good job on finding and loving your veil! your blog rocks!
