    The lace mantilla veil is gorgeous! Which Etsy shop did you find it in?

    The bubble veil….looks dated to me. I think you’d regret having it in your photos somewhere between 5min-5 years after your wedding.

    I’d say go with the Mantilla, it will flatter your dress much more than the bubble. And it is just so beautiful.

    Mantilla all the way. It’s romantic and really helps accentuate your dress and allows you to be the star. The pouf of the bubble veil draws attention but notin a flattering way. With a gorgeous dress like you picked out the veil should not compete at all. In addition, judging by the way you described the mantilla I think it’s your favorite as well 🙂

    The mantilla is soft and feminine, like your (amazing!) gown. The bubble is sort of boxy/angular/sharp to me.

    If your dress was full lace then the probability of clashing with a mismatched lace veil would be of concern. However, the mantilla is scalloped, as is the lace on your dress, and the patterns are similar. IMO, they’ll look great together and fit your theme.

    Mantilla for sure, it’s romantic and timeless. The bubble veil looks very trendy and a bit silly to me, to be honest. I don’t think it’s very flattering either.

    OP, maybe you can take a clear photo of the lace on your dress and see if the seller can match it as close as possible with her lace swatches?

    I voted mantilla because bubble veils look very 80s to me.

    I wouldn’t worry about the lace pattern.  Lots of dresses have multple patterns of lace within them already, and it’s usually not noticeable (I think Kate Middleton’s dress has 3 types of lace in it).  Lace pretty much just looks like lace.  I doubt most people’s lace veils match the lace in their dress exactly.

    I’m planning on sewing my own dress, and I’ve been spending a lot of time analyzing lace!
