I am going with the simplest of dresses. The J. Crew Ava wedding gown… Its the simple-ness of the dress that makes it so beautiful to me. I want to keep accessories to the minimum but want an amazing dramatic veil to “dress it up”.
Trouble is, I can’t find one I think ‘goes’ with the dress. For some reason I feel like a drop veil isn’t quite right. I can’t find any real brides wearing this dress for inspiration.
Please help me with some gorgeous dramatic veil suggestions.

Have you tried it on? I was thinking for a veil maybe something really long, which would be dramatic but simple at the same time. Like Downton Abbey.

@peachacid: I’ve tried the dress on but haven’t taken pictures… I’ll do that soon so that there’ll be some “real” bride pics out there for other gals.
I love the downtown abbey veil. I like that it’s kind of wide at the head (if that makes sense) and not bunched up at the bun… I wonder… do veils come in different widths? How does one acheive that look? I’m so clueless!
Thanks for the suggestion! I’m going to save the pic for reference.
