Hi, I'm new to the board, never really expected to be here but at 52 I am now engaged for the first time and we've set a date of November 11. My FI was married for two short years 40+ years ago and no one in the family ever met her so for all intents and purposes this is a first marriage for both of us. We've been together for 12 years and have been living together for about 8 and I never had plans for us to get married so this is a huge surprise.
We've decided on a backyard wedding for 75, with a heated tent for the reception as well as the ceremony if it's chilly. I'm in NC so it could be gorgeous or it could be quite cool. I'm leaning towards a chiffon evening gown in ivory, he's wearing a dark suit. My question is, is it tacky to wear a veil at my age . And, if not, I have a pixie cut. Can I successfully wear a veil or should I work really hard to grow it out as long as possible over the next four months.
