Something Borrowed”¦From a Bee!

Hive, I have been kicking ass and taking names on finishing off the details of my bridal look. In the course of eight days I bought my wedding jewelry, ordered my shoes on Etsy, purchased a new corset bra for under my dress, my hair extensions were purchased, AND I received my something borrowed veil in the mail.

Who’s veil am I going to be wearing? I’ll give you a hint. Not only is she a fellow fairy tale/magic generation bee, but she’s also a fellow weapons related icon. :) Why, yes, the lovely and gorgeous Mrs. Archer of course!

The veil I’m borrowing is her fingertip length diamond white beauty and I’m so honored to be able to wear something on my wedding day that will remind me of this wonderful community.

Since I’m huge tease and haven’t revealed my dress yet, here are a few photos of me wearing the veil with my tiara. Let’s ignore the fact that I have no clue how to put on a veil, let alone a veil WITH a tiara. (Seriously I had no idea what I was doing.)

I just love the fullness of it and I’m dying to see how it looks with my gown. How does one keep a tiara and a veil securely attached to their head without an up do? Good thing I’ve got Laura!

(all photos personal)

What do you think of the veil with the tiara? Would you borrow someone else’s veil?

    I had a veil and tiara on our wedding day. I wasn’t sure how it would look, but it would up working really well and I’m glad that’s the decision I made.

    I love your tiara and it looks so great with Mrs. Archer’s veil! I’m doing the veil & tiara look too and I’m a bit worried how it’s going to work in my very fine, short hair, but we shall see!

    I borrowed my veil from my matron of honor, and really happy I did!! It looked great, made a special connection between the two of us! Plus it cut down on expenses since I didn’t have to buy one. Your veil and tiara look great together!

    Yep, the tiara looks better with a veil.
    I felt so honored to wear something from a fellow bee, it was fun to explain.

    Love it! I was nervous about my veil falling out without an updo to keep it in place. One of my bridesmaids just used a bobby pin to make sure it stayed. I love the tiara with the veil!
