After we picked our photographer, my mom said, "You better get at least one shot with you in your dress and veil for grandma."
My dreams of no veil went right out the window because my grandma wants a veil and whatever my 92-year-old grandma wants, she gets.
When I was trying on wedding gowns and would find one that I liked, the consultant would always bring over a veil to finish it off. And a veil just felt so classic and traditional ... and it completely changed my mind.
If you haven't ever thought of a veil, you definitely want to sit down and actually look through them to get an idea of what's out there. If you don't, you won't know what you're looking for and chances are, you will overpay.
I spent a lot of time looking at the veils on Simply Bridal's website. Simply Bridal sells a lot more than just veils. The site sells everything from jewelry to dresses. Yup, you can buy your wedding dress online.
Now, I know. It sounds impossible. Personally, I tried on at least 50 dresses before I bought one, so it would take a lot of guesswork to pick a dress out online. At least, you'd think so. Actually, you don't even have to guess. You can actually select two dresses and have them sent to you for $19.95. Try it for seven days and then return it to Simply Bridal. When you end up purchasing your dress, that $19.95 will be credited towards your dress purchase.
