I am trying to decide on a long-line bra for my Allure 2455 dress. I am not too large (34C), but definitely want some lift.
Also, does anyone have an opinion or experience with a veil? I am on the fence… I know it would be beautiful with a veil, but I don’t want to take away from the detail on the top.

I’m probably going to be wearing this dress. I have shorter hair, though, and will probably go with a headband or hair piece. I think a birdcage veil could be nice with it, too, depending on your style. I’m planning on buying a longline bra, I’m 32DD so its a necessity lol.

I might be too late, just saw this now, but here’s my experience:
You have great taste! This was my wedding dress too, for my October 2012 wedding. I wore a fingertip length veil. The edges were scalloped like the hem of the gown, and had a 3/4″ border with a pattern of seed pearls and little sparkly bits. I also had a removable, unedged blusher. I did not feel it detracted from the top at all, rather added to the completeness of my look, but that is my vintage style speaking.
I am a 32C, and did not wear a bra. My seamstress opened the silky liner and sewed cups in for me. She actually thought I was much bigger and had originally picked out D size cups, so I’m guessing this may work for your size too. I felt supported and secure with the proper sized cups after she adjusted the gown straps, and even more so after I put the lace layer on. It’s not something I would have done if it wasn’t for the lace layer though, as this camoflauged the slight show through from the color of the cups. I was also considering using the chemise as a lingerie piece afterwards, in which the cups would show through (I didn’t). Just something else to think about.
Congrats and have fun!
