I never thought that I would be a ‘veil girl’ and if I did have one then it would be a short simple one. Well, all that changed when I started trying dresses on…the long veil always seemed to ‘complete’ the dress I was wearing. I sweated it out for a bit (they do not come cheap) but alas, my love was cemented when I saw the bottom right picture. Bam, cathedral lace edged veil it had to be!
If you’re in turmoil on the long-vs-short veil I am sure that this collection of images will help; who doesn’t want to stand in a field and let 2 1/2 metres of delicious tulle swoosh behind you? I know I do!
