Second Thoughts

I bought a veil. It’s very simple (and inexpensive), which is just what I wanted.

But now I’m having second thoughts about it. I’ve been loving Mrs. Pony‘s recaps, and I’m obsessed with her mantilla veil (borrowed from Mrs. FroYo).

I didn’t think I wanted to do a mantilla because I like the way the veil looks when it’s lower on my head, and mantillas look weird like that. But then I saw this veil on Style Me Pretty.

I LOVE the lace trim on the edge. I looked into lace-trimmed veils, but they were crazy expensive. I could buy lace trim and sew it to the end of my veil, but I can’t decide if it’s worth the money and time I would spend. I’m only going to wear the veil for an hour or so. But it’s soooo pretty!

What do you think? Should I go for the lace or keep the veil the way it is?

    I am in love with your veil. I am look for the same thing. Do you mind sharing where you got it? How much?

    Well if it were me, I would just stick with what you’ve got- but that’s because I’m at the point where no more decisions can be made and no more things can be changed, else I’ll go insane.

    But the lace is really pretty!

    You can find the chapel length wedding veil on Etys in Elaborate Stitches Shop. Hope this help, I looked at her shop and she has beautiful veils at great prices.

    Lace is so beautiful — I vote for that…but, I’m 100% biased!
