I’m not wearing a black wedding dress, but this is one of my favourite photos…I wouldn’t do a black veil with a black dress, you’d look like Morticia…but this ivory veil with black lace embroidery is just exquisite.

@peonyinparis:  That s so pretty!

 

 

@Sam713:  Not getting married yet but if I wore a black dress I wouldn’t go for a black veil as that would be too much I think, Ivory would be nice and I would go long.

@peonyinparis:  What a pretty combination of the black and white veil.

@Sam713:  I’ve never liked a non-traditional wedding dress but that black dress and ivory veil may have changed my mind!  That dress looks A LOT like the dress I bought (except mine is ivory) so definitely don’t rule out the possibility of purchasing a white or ivory dress and having it dyed black.  I’ve only ever seen black satin dresses and the black tulle looks so lovely and light.  Hope you find your perfect dress/veil combo!

@Sam713:  I am not planning on wearing black, but have you considered a nude/ blush pink veil? That might be less harsh than either black or ivory, but still give you a bridal feel. I really like the idea of doing black lace applique around the bottom edge! I think that would be very elegant.
