So happy for you and your dress baby! Lol! I love love love blush dresses. My dress baby is ivory but I’m thinking about having blush accessories. I think ivory goes well with blush. White would work too I’m sure, depending on your complexion some may look better with one or the other. I’d love to see some blush dress brides show their pics though..

I wore an ivory/champagne dress for my June 23rd wedding but a blush colored veil.  It was from Richard Designs in a color called “rum pink.”  The company is based in Britain and the veil was pretty spendy but I fell in love with it when they placed it on me and that says a lot since I was adamant that I didn’t want a veil at all.  Wish I knew the style number but it just had little rhinestones in clusters of 2 and 3 glued on it.  In most lighting you could hardly tell the difference in color but I knew it was different and loved it.Can you tell I love excuses to post pics of my wedding….Good luck

@summerSmile:  I’m planning on wearing a pink gown (leaning towards Maggie Sottero’s Divina) and I think I’ll be wearing an ivory or off-white veil.  I’ve seen pics online of other brides that have worn pink with that color veil and it seems to work well together.  I probably wouldn’t go bright white, because there would be too stark of a contrast.

off-white or ivory would look really pretty! Or, if it is possible to find a veil with a grey tint to it it would look pretty

Omg, I love love love this dress – I’ve seen a few bees with it on and it’s a magnificant cut and I’m sure you’ll blow everyone away in it!!! And good exchange fireworks for dress: I found my dress much cheaper than I had expected, so I’m buying expensive shoes to reward myself 🙂

What about silver? I’ve seen veils in a slight silver shimmer before. Or else, they do have pinky veils, or a veil is pretty easy to make, so if you could find the tulle in the color you want, you could then take it to a dressmaker.

Okay,

Firstly, i lOOOVE your dress!!

secondly i have two veils in mind:

 

dont get freaked out by the ladys dress (its the concept im interested in): 

PINK OMBRE VEIL: with none of the beading etc and not as heavy, a few etsy stores would be able to do this:

 

Then, i though if the petal veil in IVORY, what is at the waist the cirle details would go well with something like this:

 

 

Please note that this veil is from an etsy store    CorrineONeill    She does amazing veils!

If these seem too much for you, have a look at Gwen Stefani’s Veil its just ivory simple and goes beautifully aswell 🙂

Here is a pic of myself trying on the AA Sleeping Beauty gown with an ivory veil…

Here was another picture I came across online of a bride wearing Maggie Sottero’s Victoriana in pink.  I actually can’t tell if that veil is ivory or a true white, but I think it looks great!

Just to add my thoughts I think a blush dress looks best with a veil that matches it in color, and not with ivory or white. I think RobotBabooshka‘s veil would be perfect with the DB VW dress.

Most places that make veils also make them in blush pink.
