I am wearing my mom's veil for my wedding and when I tried on the handmade dress from esty, it just didn't look right. I tried dressing it up with a pair of nice heels, wearing the string of pearls (given to me on my 16th birthday from my mom), and even working my hair a bit to see if it would look right. And it never did.
Bound and determined to wear the veil, something so sentimental to my mom, I ordered another dress. Yes, it is more expensive. Yes, it is fancier. Yes, I do feel a little guilty about buying it. But I LOVE the dress, and I love how confident I feel in it. I cannot wait to wear it on my wedding day.
