My Thoughts on the Big Debate

I’ve got my views about it and since this is MY blog, I’m going to talk about it and nobody can stop me.

I think you will be surprised at where I stand.

I overhear conversations about where people stand and I can honestly say that I see both sides.

Should I wear a Veil on my Wedding Day or just a headpiece.

Oh, wait.

Was there another debate going on?

What did you think I was talking about?

Oooohhhh.  Riiiiigghhhtt.

No, sorry.  You don’t care what I think about that.

Ok, back to the veil thing.

In the last ten years, veils have not always been on trend.  I saw more Brides just wanting headpieces, flowers or a simple vintage brooch to adorn their hair.

Do I love that look?

Yes.  I think it is a beautiful contemporary look.  It’s simple and glamorous all at the same time.

But.

Let me list a few reasons why you might want to rethink your decision if you have already decided not to wear a veil.

1.  Let me ask you a question, how often do you get to wear a veil?  For most people the answer is “only on my Wedding Day”.

2.  I once read a study in a Bridal Magazine where they took 100 Grooms and asked them to draw a Bride.  Every single one of them drew a bride with a veil.

3.  It truly finishes your look.  When you wear a veil, you look like a Bride, not just a girl wearing a white dress.

Do you know what is so great about fashion right now?  Anything goes!!

Seriously!

I mean, come on

What says anything goes like a freakin’ fanny pack and denim on denim?

But it’s also true about Bridal.

There are so many different looks that are in style and you can find a veil that will match each one, whether it’s Bohemian

or classic drama

Just don’t wear a fanny pack that day.  Please.

Wear it for the Ceremony and then take it off afterwards and keep your headpiece on.  Not only does this create a more relaxed feel, it also helps your hair when your guests want to hug you.  I have seen more veils get ripped out of Brides’ hair that way.

So in closing I would like to ask you to please reconsider wearing a veil.

It’s the American way!
