Why did you decide to rent your bridal accessories & how was your experience? 

Once I **finally** found my perfect wedding dress, I knew that I’d need a veil with an ethereal and vintage style to compliment my vision for my big-day look. While I loved the salon at which I found my dress, I was very underwhelmed by the veil options. I researched independent designers’ veils extensively, but most were out of my ideal price range.

Happily Ever Borrowed had a really great selection, so I ended up deciding between a few veils that became my top picks in my search. Ultimately I was able to find the exact style of veil I was looking and ended up finding a jeweled hair piece to elevate my look even further. Everything shipped very quickly to me, and the return process after my wedding was a breeze. Overall it was a fantastic experience in terms of service and product from start to finish.

What was your favorite part of the day? Special moment?

Instead of doing a “first look” (we’re too traditional!), Brad and I decided to write each other letters to open the morning of our wedding. I had written one long letter to Brad, but Brad had written multiple letters and had even written a little “Reasons I Want to Marry You” booklet that brought me to tears. He asked my bridesmaids to give me a different letter at different stages of the morning, including as soon as I woke up, while I was having my makeup done, and right before I walked down the aisle, among others. Not only were they an amazing way to celebrate our special day, but they’re my favorite keepsakes from our wedding.
