About Me

My photo
I'm a 23 year old Business Systems Analyst planning a DIY-heavy wedding to the love of my life on 9 . 10 . 11. Other then wedding planning, I spend most of my time trying to stay in shape or playing with my 3 dogs...Gabby, Dudley, and Tyson. I hate cleaning and almost never go a day without wearing something purple, and I hope you can keep up with my ADD blogging style!

Soooo...veil...yes or no?

I took my first stab at making a birdcage veil (I used the instructions here).  Since it was just my first shot, I used super cheap-o tulle, but I have nicer stuff to use once I'm comfortable with how I'm going to make it.  And the headband/flower is actually a headband from Burlington Coat Factory that I got for $2!!!  I wouldn't wear it for the actual wedding, but I would create my own (that one is super small {ouch} and the pearls are super cheap looking).

So, what do you all think?  Should I go for it and make a nice one, or are birdcage veils not my thing? (PS - those are the earrings I'll be wearing, they were my Gram's and I love them!)


  1. I think it looks great! You did a fantastic job. :)

  2. Wow can't believe you made that it looks wonderful!!
