Accessories Week: Comb + Veil

29 June 2012

For my final accessories post, we shall discuss what I’m wearing on my head!

Marget and I will actually be sharing a veil, and we’re hoping it will become a family heirloom! (Still two sisters between us yet to be married, so there’s hope for it to happen even in this generation :) We fell in love with a Sara Gabriel veil a month or so after I got engaged, but at about $450, it was out of our price range. When Annette of Chaviano Couture said she could make something similar for $250, we jumped at the chance! Annette and I had our final Skype call yesterday, and she sent me a few in-process photos, too. That’s it on the bottom right – we’re going to make the horsehair trim about 25% narrower, but otherwise, we’re thrilled!

Post-ceremony I think I’ll switch out the veil for a comb tucked into an updo. A few pretty options above from Tejani, Jennifer Behr, Hair Comes the Bride, and Percy Handmade. Happily, I’ll be borrowing the comb a dear friend wore on her wedding day!

I’m off to a wedding at a Newport mansion tonight – can’t wait!! Will be back soon to share pics and a review of my Rent the Runway dress!
