Once I found my dress it was time to start thinking about my veil. What did I want? What length, trim, style?

I decided right off the bat that I didn't want a long veil. No cathedral length for me. Don't get my wrong I love them, and seeing Mrs. Snow Cone's recaps I know that it would look amazing with my dress-we're dress twins. :) But a cathedral length veil seems to formal for our outdoor wedding. Of course I broke my Mother's heart with this decision. If it were up to her I would be wearing a Princess Diana veil with three or four little girls holding it behind me...
But that was not my dream. I pictured a simple veil, fingertip length at the most, with maybe a nice satin trim. With that in mind I began my search on Etsy. I found so many options, but one particular shop caught my eye.
This shop had just what I was looking for simple but unique. There were so many great options! I ended up going with this one!
A month later it arrived at my apartment. I am so happy with it and I can't wait to try it on with my dress at my final fitting next week!
Sorry about my dirty mirror in this picture....

I heart my veil. I got really emotional when I tried it on. I don't know what it is about veils, but it really brings out the "bride" feeling in me!
What about you? Are you wearing a veil? Does is make you feel more like a Bride?
