To V or Not to V: That is the question

When I was little, I used to walk around the house with a pillow case on my head.  It was a mock veil for my mock wedding day. Every little girl plays dress up and veils are a major part of that charade. It's not that we really cared or even had a clue what getting married was... we just wanted to wear THE VEIL! But then I grew up and got engaged. The second most important thing besides finding "the one" is finding "the dress/veil".
I found the dress but when I tried on the veil I looked R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S! I don't know why and I still don't quite get it to this day, but on me a veil was still playing dress up and I had no intention of having my clothes wear me on my wedding day. I decided instead to go with a low chignon adorned with small orchids. 
Point is, do what looks good on you. Whether it's for work, picking out a bathing suit or getting ready for your wedding, don't just do what you think you're supposed to. If a veil looks stunning on you, wear it and wear it all night. If it doesn't, get creative. Embellish with feathers, flowers, broches. Just BE you.
