Chocolate Veils

It seems that the men have it so much easier when itcomes to preparing for a wedding. All they have to do is pick out a tux and remember to pick it up. Me, on the other hand, I have to pick the dress, pick a hairstyle, pick a make-up style, pick people to do both, pick a veil and pick shoes to wear. Even if we're sharing the duties on picking the reception, ceremony site and everything else, it still feels a little lopsided just because I have to choose on all these extra things.

But we knocked out another item to do from our list. We've picked out and bought our wedding favors from Lindt. We also ended up getting some free chocolates because we spent X amount of dollars. It's more chocolate than we would normally ever buy, but that's ok. We can give them away. Everyone loves chocolate, right?

I'm in the process of looking at veils and I really like the birdcage veils like this one.

All the one's that I like cost more than I want to spend. And I know that french or russian netting only costs about $5 a yard. But I can't seem to find a place to sell it that doesn't require a $30 minimum order for an 18" wide piece of netting. The 9" wide netting will only be wide enough to cover my face with just enough to clip to my hair and stitching netting together looks funny. So if you know of a place that doesn't have a minimum order, I would find it totally awesome if you'd let me know.
