    Your gown is so elegant and classy that I think you should go with the horsehair one because it suits that theme better. To be honest the different laces on the two teir really bother me.

    I like the second veil you are wearing in your pictures. I think a simple plain edge veil with scattered rhinestone edging, or even a beaded edge would look fantastic, especially if you are wearing the sparkly belt pictured.

    I like the detail of the horsehair veil better. I’m not in love with where those veils fall though. Have you tried on different length veils? Maybe cathedral? What length is that first veil you tried on? I love the length but not the lace edge with the dress and belt.

    I was going to vote for one of the two, but something is holding me back. Have you tried a longer (cathedral) veil?

    That horsehair veil is one of my favourites – I tried on a similar one and I think it’s so elegant and chic.

    Having said that though, I would consider going for a longer length because I personally found the elbow length a little awkward (the edging is quite stiff and kind of juts out strangely).

    I now like either the simple edge or the horsehair. SOmething about that horsehair veil is beautiful! I still say cathedral!

    @sillysillybee:  I’m not personally a fan of rhinestonea on veils either to be honest. I like the third option – the plain edge one. Fingertip length might be what you are looking for. Longer and less awkward than elbow, but not as full on as cathedral.

    @sillysillybee:  I voted for the horsehair ribbon veil – it’s really similar to one that I tried on in a bridal salon and fell in love with! If the dress I ended up buying hadn’t been all lace, I would have gotten it (or something similar).

    I do agree with PP that the length could be a little awkward. Are you opposed to a catheral length veil? I think it would go with your dress perfectly! Here’s a link to a veil I almost bought on etsy

    Good luck! You look stunning!

    I wish I could help, but I’m stuck now. I like the last one and the one with the ribbon but I am not sure if they go well with the back of your dress.

    I really love the length of the first lace-edged veil, but your dress is so simple, and the lace+satin isn’t really doing it for me, but I LOVE the idea of the horsehair ribbon, or just a simple pencil edge or beaded-edge.

    I think since the dress is so structured, I would stay away from the cut-edge, but that’s just me 🙂

    @sillysillybee:  I really like the look of the veil you are wearing with your dress in the first pic. So of the veils you posted I’d go with choice B. I’m not a fan of A b/c it seems it would go with maybe more of a flowy type organza type dress and C is just a little too simple for me…..so B of those above.

    I really prefer the length and everything about the veil you have on thou in the 1st pic! Have you thought about maybe trying to find one like that one?
