All in the Keppie

Posted by Elisheva S.

A lot has been going on the last few weeks. My wedding is less than two months away.  We decided in the end to hold the wedding at the Jewish Community Center in Milwaukee. The reception will be in the Soref Community Hall and the chuppah will be in a gorgeous garden outside. I’m not sure yet where the kabolas ponim and the chosson’s tish will be. We went with this venue in the end because they’re in the middle of finishing up renovations to the hall to make it more elegant and are offering an innovation special among other things.

I’ve also been trying to decide how I will do my hair and make-up and who will do it. This isn’t something I’ve given much thought to before but I guess it’s a necessary evil. A month or two ago I bought an ivory handmade veil off of from StitchedForYou’s shop. I looked around a bit online until I decided to take the plunge and buy this veil. It’s at least $50.00 less than all the other veils I’ve found. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was when I received it. It’s not too perfect, which makes it perfect for me. It also came with a gorgeous beaded comb.il_430xN.38481194

I was planning on just wearing the veil with the comb with my hair in a low bun until last night when I found this also on in thehoneycomb’s shop.

I really loved how organic and vintage it looks. I wasn’t sure if it was too much though to wear with my veil and my dress. I’m rather low fuss. But I decided since my dress is very simple and plain that the comb wouldn’t be too fussy and bought it in the end.

I think I want to wear my hair like the model in this picture yet also wear my veil without the pearl comb, but I’m not sure how. Should I wear it to the side like the model and pin the veil beneath my hair? Or use the floral comb to hold up my veil in the back?
