Isn’t funny how you can think you have something figured out, and then suddenly you see a picture and everything changes?
It’s the reason why I strongly believe that you should do your best to stop looking at wedding dress pictures once you’ve chosen one — that’s how some people end up as two dress brides!

She’s absolutely gorgeous, and I totally get why thousands of people rushed to copy her dress. It was her veil that I couldn’t take my eyes off, though! Fortunately, I hadn’t yet spent any money on the small veil, and was just messing around with a $5 roll of tulle to find a way to DIY it.
I was getting discouraged, because it just. wasn’t. working. Which is probably why I got hit with veil envy so bad anyway! I immediately went to my most trusted advisors for help, and went on a pinning spree.

My Pinterest board is a mess, and probably will be until my next (and possibly final! Squee!) dress fitting, at which my seamstress said she will have me try a few options.
Currently, I’m absolutely in love with this image, but I’m a little scared to get attached to something that’s such a drastic change from my original concept.
DRAMA. And so close to what my actual dress looks like! But ooooof, dealing with that long of a veil, even for a short time. #Yikes.
