Hmm. I would like to see a picture to give a better opinion.

My veil what a bit whiter than my dress and I think it allowed a bit of contrast so you could see the lace detail on the veil/dress without them blending into one another

My dress is champagne and I got a pearl veil at another store. Haven’t paired it with my dress yet but the store said this is usually the colour they sell to match with gold and champagne dresses so hopefully it will look ok.  If not, it was reduced from like $250 down to $35 so I’ll just get another one.

@Pink Asawa:  I agree, I think it might be better, so the veil doesnt blend into your dress and disappear. it will probably show up better in pictures.

To me it does. I had to give up my dream veil bec my dress is white and it only came in ivory. Now both r white and it looks much better.

@kaitlyn417:  I wouldn’t think it matters personally knowing that it came from your mothers old dress. To me I value the meaning more so than I would if it were an exact match unless you are really concerned about it!

My dress is white and my veil is ‘candlelight’ — it’s my mom’s. I haven’t worn them together yet, but I’m sure it won’t matter that they’re not the same color.
