I was a little nervous when I started wearing this one because I know some people say that the rule is white veils for unmarried women, black veils for widows and beige veils for married women. The people who say that's the rule obviously haven't tried to find a beige veil. It's practically impossible! Believe me, I've searched and so far gold is the closest to beige I've found.
A woman I know who lived in South America for a while told me that the area she lived in had a different color code for their veils. They wore black veils during Monday through Saturday and then they all wore white veils on Sunday because Christ is risen!
I tend to match my headcovering to whatever I'm wearing. I figure that the headcovering is already going to stand out, but maybe it will stand out a little less if it matches what I'm wearing. So if I'm black I try to wear a darker headcovering and if I'm wearing light colors I try to wear a lighter colored headcovering. And sometimes I just wear my red scarf because I love it!
Scanning through these pictures I can't believe how long Paul's hair used to be! Sadie's hair is curling just like his does when it's not super short. Speaking of which, his hair's getting a little long. Time to give my second hair cut ever! Hopefully I'll start getting a little faster at it as I get more practice in!
And of course I had to add this picture of the veil! I guess it ended up being my first chapel veil and Sadie's first chapel veil too!
