Here’s a link to my dress:
I’m tending to like long veils (floor- or chapel-length), perhaps with some embellishment, but I just can’t seem to find one I love. I think my hair will be up but low, in a chignon.
Any suggestions? Anybody else have a similar gown and a great veil?

Oooh, pretty dress. You could do a white mantilla style veil with all that lace.

since your dress is all lace….the first thing that came to mind was a mantilla style veil. i think that would be really pretty.
i’d go with the chapel length to give you some added oomph as you walk down the aisle.
were you considering doing a blusher? do you prefer the sheerness of a one layer of the extra body of a 2 layer?
a one layer would allow you to see the pretty lace and ribbon in the back very clearly.
also, those sheer veils that have lots of lace applique toward the hem would be very lovely as well……

If you know what you want check out OccanseyDesigns.com You could customize your veil for length and even width, and cut. Also they have AWESOME customer service if you want something special.

Well, I don’t know how set you are on having a veil, but that dress reminds me of Jenna Bush’s wedding dress (except hers wasn’t a halter) and she actually didn’t have a veil and looked beautiful.
If you definitely want a veil, I also think a mantilla would be lovely. Of course, that’s my favorite kind of veil and I am somewhat biased…
