What's With the Veil?

Can you make a traditional thing-nontraditional? I think so. 

For me a wedding veil is just a cool thing. I mean many of us pretend from itty-bitty to wear a veil while playing dress up. All of a sudden the once lacy curtain or sheer runner on mom's table becomes the mystical, fairy tale wedding veil that you imagine to flutter and float as you glide down the aisle to you groom. Then, your thoughts and imaginations are interrupted by the call to come eat macaroni and cheese. 

Now you're about to get married-and you find yourself slightly "hippie-fied" with the tendency to lean more to the extreme and un-ordinary at the same time you want some sort of veil. 

What are you going to do? 

First off-don't feel the pressure to be "un-traditional" in everything. If there is something you really want-DO IT! It's your day and you should determine what you do and don't want. A concept or set idea shouldn't lead your decisions. YOU should let your decisions lead your visions and ideas. 

Think up some funky crazy ways you can shape your veil, incorporating your personality etc.! Experiment and have fun!
