Hi everyone! I was hoping to get some help from you all as to what kind of veil you think would go best with my mermaid dress. I’m interested in either a long, 1-tier fingertip length or cathedral-length veil. The other option would be a mantilla veil, but I think it would be kinda hard to find one with a thin lace border and in the same kind of lace and color as my dress, which is why I’ve kinda given up on that idea. I’m not sure what kind of edge the veil should have. The dress is pretty detailed, so I think mabe the veil should be more plain. Maybe just a cut edge? What do you think would work?
Here is my dress.
The dress is actually champagne underneath and the lace on top is ivory with some beading and pearls. The picture doesn’t do it justice.
Also, if anyone has any hair ideas, that would be helpful too. My fiancee loves it down, but I don’t know if I could pull that off while wearing a veil. I have a shoulder-length, curly bob.
Thanks for all of your help!

Are you planning on a very formal wedding? Long mantila veils are so beautiful for such occasions.
Also, a shout-out from one short-haired chick to another. The veil decision is hard!

@Baccara: It’s not a very formal wedding. I’m going for a more relaxed feel. The reception, and maybe the ceremony too, is at a historic site with a lot of gardens and walking/hiking trails. So I just want a relaxed evening with beautiful surroundings and good food for all of my friends and family. My dress probably doesn’t fit the relaxed style, but I don’t care. Lol. Just looking for what looks best! Don’t know if that would be a chapel or cathedral mantilla or regular veil.
And yes, I’m new to the short hair! It used to be mid back length until I chopped it a month ago. Now I don’t know what to do with it! Lol. I love it though.

@magicnosegoblin: What do you think of a veil like this? Best of both worlds. No lace on top then it starts at the waist. Do you think something like this would work?
