I guess the bird cage screams Gracie? I have to admit, I was a fan at one time but just as I outgrew the whole ” I want a 12 foot tall wedding cake ” , I guess I outgrew the cage veil. They are hip, they are fun, they are unusual and vintage, but I truly wanted to feel so much more bridal and fabulous than that.
|Totally not appropriate for my first wedding….|
|Seriously, wake me when this bride gets a personality|
|Funny… she still looks like this today… minus the veil of course..|
|note: she obviously likes a tall cake too
I decided the bigger the veil, the closer to God.
The style is classified as Bubble or Couture
|Fell in love with this one, I am sure it costs more than my dress did.. and it was wrong for my outdoor venue, had our wedding been inside a chapel I would have saved all my pennies for this|
|I thought this was the sweetest one of all. SO simple, but incredibly sweet|
I made my decision when I found BellaBridalVeils on Etsy. Yes, Etsy…. again. Seriously, they have EVERYTHING on there. It is my addiction.
Anyway, don’t know if any of you have been veil shopping recently but they can run you in the hundreds and designer veils into the thousands. Why? I have no idea. Its literally yards of tulle, the same tulle they sell at the fabric store down the street, stitched to a plastic comb. That’s it. Yes, some are french tulle, Italian lace, hand stitched embroidery with swarovski crystals, I am not talking about those though. I am talking about your run of the mill, plain Jane veils! The prices are Ridiculous. Which is why I turned to Etsy. I saw the veils in the store and said ” I could SO make that.” Then I thought, “Hey, I bet someone already did… lets check Etsy!”
So, here she is, my veil, my utterly cheap and wonderfully huge, is that a veil or did the cotton candy fairy land on your head veil.
