Out of the two I’d pick the one with the blusher!

have you thought of a cathedral drop veil. They are very sheer light material. The blusher looks completely different when pulled back compared to the normal veil. A plain white/ivory or lace sash would look nice also.

You don’t have to have a two-tiered veil or a drop veil to have a blusher. You can simply add a blusher to any veil.  My bridal salon ordered a separate blusher for me that we attached to my raw-edged. cathedral-length veil.

I almost always choose a cathedral-length veil for brides. Howver, given that your dress has the organza overlay, I think I really like the shorter veil on you.   However, I would always choose a raw edge over a pencil or ribbon edge so that there is no obvious horizontal line to bisect your body.

I just wanted to throw out that you can get a pencil edge, 2 layer veil for a very low price.  Perhaps I’m not up on the veil lingo and misunderstood what you’re looking for (I wasn’t remotely picky about my veil), but it sounds like you want a veil like mine (fingertip double layer pencil edge with no other embellishments).  It was less than $10 at Michael’s (using the 20% off coupon from the Sunday paper), and was the same quality as the $100 veils at the bridal salon.  All I had to do was put the veil under the shower for a few seconds to get out the fold lines.

I don’t mean to clutter your thread with photos if mine doesn’t meet your requirements, but just wanted to help a Bee save some money if it does!
