The Long and Short of It

I have a sartorial dilemma on my hands, err, head.  

Do I go with a veil that is short, contemporary and fresh?

Or do I stick with the classic drama of a long drop veil?

On the one hand, I love the ease of wearing a short veil.  It's sophisticated--no need to worry about an excited guest tugging on it as they give you a hug.  

And look at this delicate blusher by Twigs and Honey:

Oooh...I think this might be what they mean by "short and sweet."

But I can't get my mind off of the drop veil.  A drop veil is essentially a piece of tulle that is pinned into your hair, without any bunching. Simple!  And just look at this:

It's surprising to me that I'm leaning toward the longer veil.  I love how the veil stops just at her flowers.  If you asked me a few months back I would have said that I was going for a blusher for sure.  But now, I'm thinking I might go for the drop veil, maybe with a little lace.  And I'll have to be on my guard to make sure that no one tugs on it too hard.  

Oh the decisions, will they ever stop?! 

Have you decided on a veil?  Are you going for a long or short veil?  Or no veil at all?

  1. I always thought I'd have some sort of veil, but it's looking like that will probably not happen - when I tried on my dress, my mom found this gorgeous hair piece that we ended up buying.. which I don't think will go with a veil. I'm a tad upset about it, but we'll see what ultimately happens!
