Let’s be honest, like many girls all over the world, I have imagined my dream wedding in my head many times. I have always had a pretty good idea of what I wanted: country wedding, outside, summertime, gorgeous white dress and red roses, and I have always had a vision of what I would kind of be wearing on my special day: a dress with no veil.
When Rose Dude asked me to marry him, and I took to the web to find ideas for my wedding and started looking for wedding dresses and specifics, I found myself drawn to one certain thing that I was completely sworn off of–a veil!
As far as I am aware, there is no rule to wearing a veil that you have to, and many brides don’t anymore. Veils remind me of something old-fashioned and some of the new styles I just flat out think are ridiculous looking. But why is it that I am drawn to this one idea though? I keep coming back to a Catholic style Mantilla veil. I’m not Catholic and am not an extremely religious person, and our ceremony is also going to be non-religious.
To me, this veil thing leads me to think about all of the things that I have dreamt about for so long, and the amount that I have changed in recent years and grown up. Perhaps, my style has changed more than I realized or perhaps, there is just that one thing about my wedding attire that I found is the one exception despite my complete and utter dislike of this piece of apparel.
Anyone else out there have thoughts on this subject?
