I went really simple because my dress is so intense 🙂  Here’s the dress (Astor, Modern Trousseau): 

Here’s the veil (Tia, Sara Gabriel):

My dress had a concentrated amount of lace on the top, and then spread out to lace appliques on tulle toward the bottom. It had a scalloped lace hem, and a scalloped neckline. I chose a chapel length veil from Sibo Designs on Etsy. I wanted the mantilla look, and someone had lent me an unbelievably expensive custom made veil tha their daughter had worn at her wedding. The veil had been custom made to match the dress with HEAVY crystals and beads in the mantilla style. It was literally a piece of art. Unfortunately, it was just way too heavy for my dress. While I do think a veil with lace edging all around would have looked nice, I ultimately think what I chose was so perfect. It had a juliet style cap that was all lace, with lace going down until about my shoulders. From there, the veil was just raw edge, and it had a fingertip blusher. I was actually never really in love with my dress, so the veil was really the piece that I was head over heels for.

I went for a thin pencil edge because I wouldn’t want to mismatch lace designs between the veil and dress:

@futuremrshumble:  my bridesmaids were amazing! They carried my train and veil for me wherever we had to go! I never had any issues. The only thing that was a tiny bit bothersome, every so often my veil got caught on my belt. Other than that, the drama it created was amazing!
