Okay, so I'm getting married in NINE DAYS!! AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
I have my dress and shoes (actually, I'm wearing boots, as we're getting married outside). I even have my jewelry. However, I don't have a veil yet.
This is my second marriage. I did the whole big veil with my first wedding (it was waist-length, but double-tiered). It worked with the dress I wore. This time, however, I'm not really feeling the big veil. Our wedding is a little more casual (even though my dress is gorgeous), we're both a little older (I'll be 33 the day we get married and he's 46), plus I have short hair now and it won't support a big veil.
So, I'm looking at birdcage-type veils. I can't find any locally that aren't on a comb and a comb won't work with my hair. So, I'm looking to DIY one. I would really like it to be lace. My dress doesn't actually have any lace on it, but because of the beading, it feels like it does. Plus, our "theme" is kind of burlap and lace.
This is the lace I have picked out (in the beige...my dress is ivory): Chantilly Lace | Jo-Ann
And this is the headband: David Tutera‚„Ę Applique Embellished Side Headband, Cream Color | Jo-Ann
Any ideas on how I could DIY a birdcage-type veil out of that?
Oh, and this is my dress: Romantic Pick-up A-line Taffeta Gown With Embroidered Neckline - Adoring Dress
Also, our colors are mint green and different shades of pink, with cream and antique gold accents.
