    My dress had a lot going on on the bodice and I didn’t know if I wanted a veil. I ended up with a simple fingertip length very sheer veil, no blusher, with just a little beading detail along the edge.  I think something like that, simple and sheer, would look very pretty with your dress.

    A sheer, single-layer, raw-edged, cathedral-length veil that you wear bustled  for the reception. I wore mine the entire night.

    @YokoOhNo:  Don’t feel bad. I had no idea either! 🙂  I was stunned that the bridal salon owner told me that all I needed was a single, clear, plastic snap that the alterations person added to my veil.  One of my bridesmaids “bustled” it for me, and I wore it that way until the very end of the evening, when I took it down for some additional pics and some shots for our video.

    And thank you for your very sweet words about my pics!

    absolutely plain sheer raw edge drop veil … I may be biased but I find it the least likely to take away from your dress

    @YokoOhNo:  Yes, it held up perfectly throughout the night, although I didn’t hug many people. (Sadly, my timeline got off track, and I really had no time to interact with the vast majority of my guests, and I only danced once with my DH and once with my dad while I had my veil bustled — the only other dance I had time for was my final dance with my DH, but I had taken out the veil bustle at that point.)

    It wasn’t heavy at all, and the bustle just involved one, clear, plastic snap placed strategically so that the cathedral part of the veil would not be dragging on the ground.
