I think it's official: No veils for me! My dad's not impressed with the idea, but my mom loves it! And so do I, which is all that counts. lol For years I had no idea what that fancy netting was. Then I discovered that it's called French Net. Pretty simple to remember; it does look Parisian. lol The tulle and little bits of feathers make this a truly remarkable headpiece and a suitable alternative to a veil.
