Face it, brides, the days of oversized veils are over. If all wedding traditions were meant to last, your father would have to pay some young man a dowry just to take you off his hands. Rather than obscuring your face through much of the ceremony (you paid how much for that makeup artist?), take a simpler and subtler approach with an Eliza Birdcage Veil ($88). It gives a nod to tradition without actually covering up all that pretty.
