So my dream veil at the bridal shop costs more than $600! Not gonna happen! So I have a back up plan. I would love to have a lace veil, but I also want a blusher. All of the ones I have found either don’t come with a blusher, or the blusher is very embellished with the same lace. I don’t like the overly embellished look.
I want a cathedral length lace veil, but I don’t want the lace on the veil to start until it’s past my shoulders (ie, no lace up around my head/face). I also want a plain blusher; no lace, no nothing.
Would that look weird? I can’t seem to find any pictures like it! I am thinking of combining the below veil with the below blusher:

I kind of think those would look funny together.

I agree with PP, I think having the plain blusher would offset the veil, but maybe not in the best way? There are websites that actually allow you to create your own veil, and its pretty affordable. You can choose the length, the fullness, the layers, the design..how blingy or not blingy, ect. I don’t have the website on me right now, but you should google it, i’m sure you could find it 🙂

@Lrroma181986: I think it could work – would you still be ordering these from a bridal shop or just ordering online? If you go the online route I have two suggestions:
1. Make sure you get them both from the same retailer so that they are the same color and fabric, it can look really weird if the tulle does match on both.
2. Go to your bridal salon and try on similar veils with your dress. That way you know what color to get and you can see if you actually like the look on you.
I’m doing something similar to you, but both of my veils are plain, cut-edge tulle. I have a one-layer cathedral length and a one-layer fingertip (or maybe elbow length? idk) that will serve as my “blusher” for the ceremony, but then I’ll take off the cathedral layer and just wear the short veil for the first dance, cake cutting, etc. I wasn’t sure about it at first but they finally came in and I LOVED the look of it when I got to try everything on together. Good luck with the veil hunt!
