Super excited today! I ordered my veil from yourdreamdress.com !! ... or at least the Cathedral portion of it ...

I''ve been stalking it out online for a while and took the plunge today! I had.to.have.it!!

It only came in Diamond White and my dress is Ivory Silk Satin but I''ve been assured that it should be a good match and if I find it not to be I should be able to return it no problem. I''m keeping my fingers crossed that it''s all good because I do NOT want to part with this veil.

Here are some pics that I thought you ladies might like to see. I hope it goes well with my dress!!

FYI - It was an absolute pleasure dealing with yourdreamdress so if anyone was thinking about it ... They are terrific!

I was truly impressed! Not only do they provide amazing - authentic - new - designer gowns at heavily discounted prices (Yay) they also provide quality accessories, like the Badgley Mischka shoes I posted for Freke the other day and my veil!
It is a beautiful Fenaroli by Regalia veil that I was able to get at 51% off the original price!!

Their customer service was prompt and courteous and really helpful. I initially emailed to inquire and Angela responded with an in-depth email that actually fully addressed my inquiry. I then called - several times - with subsequent questions and Angela was always prompt to answer and seemed happy to provide any additional information or assistance I required. Given that I was concerned that a diamond white veil may not suit my ivory dress, Angela went to the trouble of and took the time to compare ivory silk satins to this particular veil to see if it made a good match for me. Not every bridal shop would go to this trouble.

This is the customer service that dreams are made of and I wanted to give credit where credit is due and share since I KNOW that not all wedding vendors are created equally ... I''ve run into more than my fair share of the subpar ones!

... Now - I can''t wait to receive my gorgeous veil!!

Thank you so much, TheBigT!
It''s so exciting to be able to share this with others who appreciate and understand my enthusiasm!
Here is the link you requested.

I guess no one will accuse me of being understated?

Oops ... in case you were interested ... the designer is actually Fenaroli for Regalia, not "by" as I previously and incorrectly stated.

Oh, Ms. Kama, please do say it is so! Thank you! I will be so disappointed if the color is off. I was looking for drama and it smacked me in the face with this veil so it just has to match. Fingers crossed!
Besides ... I don''t have another option. I think that the designer is no longer in business or something so I don''t have the option of seeking out ivory.

Understated, me, never. I know - It''s an affliction. I blame it on the fact that I''m a Leo. I can''t help it.

Next week, my dear, Freke.
You really like it? I was scared to take the plunge but knew that I really liked it even if it is somewhat over the top. I figure that that''s better than liberally dousing it with crystals. My fi looked at me crazy b/c he knew that given the opportunity, that might be an option and he had visions of me walking down the aisle resembling a disco ball. Poor thing. Dramatic - yes. Disco ball - no.

You made me giggle. I may need to lie down. Stop.


I know, I know. I found MY shoes! I big, puffy, engorged, distended and bloated heart them!!


The only problem is that they are $1,200. Not going to happen.

Here is a pic of what can never be mine. ... Unless of course, some super PS friends find them at like 70% off in my size??!

Quick question for any of you ladies who might know ...

The veil is supposed to be 108" long. I was hoping to have one that was closer to 120" or so. My gown has a train that is somewhere between chapel and semi-cathedral length ... since I haven''t been able to put the two together, I''m fearful that this veil might be a little shorter than the train.

Can anyone put my fears at ease?

Putziba.

Barneys, I think. I wish that they were a soft gold color but I would buy them in a heartbeat, if I could!
Maybe they are name Putziba b/c I would be a Putz if I tried to fit them into my budget?

Lanie - Me either! I''ve never seen anything like it. Strangely enough, I had a similar reaction to you. When I first saw it, I was like "hmm, that''s different" and didn''t pay it much notice. As I continued to stalk, I found myself drawn back to it over and over again. Then I just became completely obsessed and knew that this meant that I had to have it. It''s the craziest most spontaneous thing that I''ve done so far. Every other decision has been drawn out and methodical.

While I''m still anxious that it may not be right with my dress or may be the wrong color or that it''s not for everyone etc ... I really do think it is fabulous and am super excited about receiving it and trying it on!

I''m glad that it''s growing on you. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!!

Well, my Couglover friend - Different is okay, right? If you love it and think that it''s beautiful, then I know it''s okay!
That is really nice and makes me feel like this

What is it about ordering something that makes you want to have it right NOW. My goodness ... I''m going to be a wreck waiting for this thing!

I just hope that it looks as nice as I''ve envisioned it. I''ll be pretty disappointed if it doesn''t but thankfully, I''ll be able to return it if its not right.

That veil looks gorgeous - can''t wait to see pics of it IRL.
Thanks AG! I really appreciate that! It''s nerveracking sharing something that I love to an audience that may love it as I do or may hate it like the scourge of some disease yet unknown to man.
If pictures look okay, I will be happy to share them with you.

Yay, Sunny - Thanks!


I''m glad you like it. See - I didn''t get my so loved ruffles so I had to create something aesthetically interesting.
It''s all your fault.


Those shoes
The price tag
= Ugh!

Oh - You know what I was thinking .... I think that just for the principle of it, you should demand your veil. You can choose to use it or not to use it and to sell it etc but it''s yours. They promised it to you and you should take it regardless of whether or not you need it. If you are going to have a bachelorette party you can always use it for fun for that as well or if any of your friends will be getting married soon, they could use it, if they wanted etc. What type of veil did our favorite bridal salon
"promise" you anyways.

Curious - what do you like about this veil. I''m interested in hearing if people are drawn to the same things that I liked about it.

YAY! I love that veil! I love the shoes too! I ran into the same problem! I found a clutch that was to die for! For 1200.00!!! Lets see if I can go find it...Oh I can''t!

It was super cute though! Had crystals and everything all over it! It would go great with everything else you have! Good for you splurging on a veil! The one I bought just for my mock trial was 9.00 on theknot. I never in a million years thought it''d be good quality or look perfect! The bridal attendant said it was perfect and they''d steam it for me, lol!

I do wish I had something like yours though! I can''t wait to see the combo together! Be sure to take pics!

How are you doing your hair?!?!?!

Thanks, Redrose. Budgets suck, huh?!

The clutch sounds lovely. If we look long and hard enough I''m sure that we can find something fabulous, similar and more reasonably priced.

The veil wasn''t so much of a splurge at all given the great pricing it was offered at! I loved a Lazaro veil that was $1,200 and, of course, absolutely out of the question. I saw some other moderate ones that ranged from $200 - $700 etc because I was looking for 2 or 3 tier at a cathedral length so they got a little spendy. This one came in at the low end so I was pleased. I had no intention of spending anymore on a veil.

Your $9 veil, however, is a steal. You are a superstar. I combed the internet looking for a steal like that and never quite saw anything that struck my fancy. A lot of nice veils but nothing that made me have to have it, if you know what I mean.

I''m doing my hair half up and half down, I think ... Not positive yet but I think that that''s the way that I will go. I have naturally curly hair and will be wearing it straight as well.

Spark that veil is going to look amazing with your dress I can't wait to see it all pulled together
, your going to make one beautiful bride :D.

The shoes you picked are stunning as well, I found this site in an Aussie bridal mag and my dream shoes
but they have some really cute stuff and the exchange rate works really well in your favour
.

Loads of sparkle and strappy

Not as sparkly but still cute :D

they had the same idea as Freke kinda

A little different but might look nice

Silver and sparkly

There are more on the site but these were the sparkliest :D.
