This is my dress too!  I love it!  What color did you order?  I went with ivory lace over light gold, but I’m going to change out the gold sash for an ivory one.

When I tried on the dress they gave me a sheer veil, fingertip length, with sparkly trim that looked really pretty.  Very simple.  I can send you a picture if you’d like.  I will have a hairstyle much like yours, down with flower pinning up one side.  I’m back and forth, but leaning toward no veil now.

I’m a MOH in a wedding and my friend, like you, chose this exact dress (she’s a redhead with pale skin too).

She went with a cathedral veil that has a lace border, it’s beautiful, and because it’s so long it doesn’t take away from the dress.

She tried on a shorter veil and it didn’t have the same effect..I think if you’re going to do it, do it long, but if not, I think the rose (or multiple, or another floral pin) would look gorgeous.  The dress speaks for itself and you definitely don’t want to be too overwhelmed with lace.

This is my dress too!  I chose the ivory on ivory.  I love it!  I’m just getting to the point of looking at veils so if anyone has pics with this dress, I’d love to see them.

I did try on a long, but very simple veil, and I really liked it with the dress, but totally understand about you not wanting to be too formal.

Hi ladies! Those of you who ordered the Karena Royale dress, how tall are you and what length of the dress did you get? The standard or +/- 3 or 5 inches? Also what size heel? I am 5’3″ and want to wear a 1.5″ heel. It was recommended that I get the -3 inches, and they said it may still be a little long. Just wondering any other experiences with the length?! Thanks so much! Smile

I am having a hard time also pick a vail. I have been thinking about doing a bird cage. I see that some of you ladies would be married already, so if you could post a pic of you in your wedding dress and vail. I would love seeing your beautiful day!!!  I too am an encour bride so no blusher for me.
