Afternoon all! My dress was supposed to be in last month so I had planned to have this all tried out in person and decided. But I got word from the bridal salon that it won’t actually arrive until lat July and it’s one of these nagging accesory details that I’m trying to wrap my mind around and have some idea of where I want to do with this come July when my dress hopefully makes it’s appearance.
I have yet to see any pictures other than model shots of anyone in this dress to get veil ideas. With the draping in the back and the flower/bow thingy on the butt, I dont’ really know what type of veil I should be envisioning for my ensemble.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and will probably save me some frustration once my dress arrives.

Wow, beautiful dress! I think with the way your dress is in the back, I would want to show it off a little, and not cover it up with an extra long veil. Personally, I think your dress would look really nice with an elbow-length veil and maybe a blusher. I don’t know if you are into that, but it wouldn’t cover up your detailing and it would work with the more traditional style of your dress. I also think a fuller veil (more than one tier, maybe a blusher like I said) would work nicely with your dress since it is a little more traditional and your dress has a full bottom. With the gorgeous details on the bust and waist of your dress, I think you should echo that with your veil. Instead of having a plain hem or a fabric hem, have beading similar to the style on your dress.
Once your dress comes in, try on a ton of different veils to find out what looks best to you. I didn’t even think I wanted a veil, but when I found the right one, I totally changed my mind!
