Here is a veil color swatch from the ebay seller I bought my veil from…

Your dress seems to be a light ivory.  I think it’s supposed to look “white” in pictures, just a more flattering softer white (vs. true “bleach” white).  For the veil I would suggest light ivory or MAYBE diamond white – not “white white” because I think it might look brighter than your dress.  The one you are wearing in your pic looks fine to me.

From what I’ve seen a light ivory will look like white in bw pics also, so a light ivory veil, which looks like it should match your dress should work fine. The color of veil you have on in the pics looks fine with the dress. Also I like the more ivory sash just fine, it kinda adds dimension, everything doesn’t need to be the some color, when the ivory is a lil darker it makes it look more vintage. So it depends on what you are going for.

I’m having a similar problem, I wanted a pink veil, but pink looks grey in bw pics, so I’m going with ivory with a pink fascinator instead.

I also agree that the veil in your pictures looks good. Your dress with the sash is beautiful!

I like the ivory sash with your gown. Your veil looks nice, but I think that a white or diamond white veil would look better. I would have to see it though to really know. I thnk the veil you have on is too dark.

I like the new sash and agree the veil is a touch too dark. I would look for it in a light ivory or off-white.

Does that dress have a veil that matches or goes with it? Mine had a matching veil and that solved my whole problem of trying to mtach colors and such.
