While shopping for chapel length veils to go with my beautiful garden romance dress I came across two (at Solutions Bridal… man I need to get out more!) and absolutely loved them both. What I didn’t love about them? The PRICE! Paying for a veil that is almost as much as my dress is certainly not in this budget bride’s vocabulary. Regardless, here they are↓
Sooo romantic and beautiful… but at a hefty price tag, totally something this Gator Bride can not afford! It was either the veil or finish Grad school… and I choose Grad school :-)
Lori London Lace Veil, $630
Simple and chic. Love it! And with the price more reasonable (okay sort of reasonable), a good choice for this Bride. What you can’t see is the beautifully sewn edge of the veil. Most veils have a thick ribbon or cord but the edge of this veil is so incredibly delicate and sweet.
Lori London Veil, $260
So… here I am. Caught between two beautiful veils. One I can’t afford, but love (and my parents love too!), and one that is more affordable but is lacking something in my mind.
I tend to over analyze everything. I hardly make any decision rashly. Just ask Mr. Knight. He knows how I think about something for several months before I get up the nerve to purchase it. Through my analyzation of these two veils I’ve discovered that what I really want is a hybrid between the two. If these two veils got together and had babies, I would want their babies. Too weird of an analogy? Bear with me… it’s Friday and my brain is in weekend mode :-)
Next week I’m meeting with a designer here in Gainesville who will (hopefully) make the perfect veil to go with my dress… for a perfect price. Till then, stay tuned!
