Oh wow! It’s gorgeous!!! Great choice! I probable wouldn’t go with a mantilla though. Those are little flowers on the dress, not lace, correct?

That’s a gorgeous dress. I would probably not go with a mantilla with this dress either. I think a birdcage would look cute or maybe a bubble veil, something shorter that wouldn’t take away from the detail of the dress.

Suggestion for those inclined to sew: my FSIL asked at my appt when I bought my dress if she could buy extra lace or fabric from the gown to make a veil. It *might* be awesome if you could buy some of the flowery fabric from the bodice and make the veil edging from that. :o) Just a suggestion- one that if it weren’t for my wonderfully crafty FSIL I wouldn’t be able to do myself.

It’s beautiful- congrats!  I think I would probably go with a birdcage or a long plain (or both) veil over a mantilla with all the detail of the dress though.

I would imagine buying extra fabric would be less expensive than buying a mantilla from POB.  It’s a beautiful dress.  I’d go back and try on a couple of styles with it to decide.  I think with the lacy bodice, you might be able to do a mantilla, but I think those look best when there’s lace right around the bottom of the dress too.

oh wow….this is such a gorgeous dress!!  With that said, I agree with the other.  I don’t think a mantilla veil is the way to go.  I’d say go with a very simple veil….I’d totally go for a cathedral length for the WOW factor!

yeah, I would skip it too.  I like the previous idea of a nice cathedral length for a dramatic effect

I tend to agree. I think a mantilla will be too heavy for the dress but a nice cut cathedral length veil would be gorgeous!

I love love love that dress!

 

Definitely DO NOT go with a mantilla veil.  Here is why:

1). Your dress is amazingly beautiful with A LOT of detail.  Go with a very simple veil so that it sets off your exquisite dress, not takes away from it.

2). Depending on what type of veil you want, what about a drop veil?  It has the same sort of look on top (no poofiness), and is timeless.

I cannot tell you enough times how beautiful your dress is.  Keep your veil simple so that you don’t go on overboard mode with all of the details.  Let us know which way you go!!

I bought the same dress!! I got the veil at Priscilla as well.  I am wearing a finger tip veil with appliques on it.

Oooh so so pretty! I agree with the others; I would go with a more “plain” veil…let your dress stand out!
