My dress is the Enzoani Diana and I’m trying to figure out what kind of a veil I want… At first I was thinking a plain veil, fingertip length, something to not compete with the beautiful dress/lace/belt.
Now I don’t know if I want a cathedral, mantilla, birdcage… I’m just confused and think I need to see real brides with their dress and veil to get a clearer image in my mind of what I’d like.
Can you also post how much your veil cost? The veil that I was thinking of purchasing (plain, fingertip) is $300 and I’m trying to figure out if they’re over charging me.. Especially because it is just tulle with no lace, design, nothing, on it.
Here is a picture of my dress with the possible veil pick:

@Diamond84: I absolutely LOVE your dress. No bs or sugar coating. A lot of lace dresses look similar but yours is unique and pretty amazing or maybe it’s just the way your wearing it as you have a great figure. the veil is simple and elegant. It compliments the dress well

Mine was very simple, beading on edges to compliment my dress

@Diamond84: I moved the thread to Dress for you
I really think a simple, cathedral would work with your dress. You should test it out
Also here is a picture of mine from the back
a matilla veil, it was made with my dress, but it’s a rather simple veil to make. Though I feel like this veil wouldn’t compliment your dress as much

@Diamond84: I think your dress looks beautiful, but frankly, I wouldn’t dream of paying $300 for a plain fingertip veil. That’s way too much.

With very few exceptions, I generally advocate on behalf of a sheer, cathedral-length veil that will allow the detail of your beautiful gown to show through and that will not compete with or interrupt the flow of your dress. I would recommend that for you also.

It depends on where you plan to buy your veil from. If you’re planning to buy it at the bridal salon that’s the average. Can I suggest looking on etsy? They have so many options to choose from and the prices are amazing.

@anonyluv: Thank you! 🙂
@KingsDaughter: Thank you for moving my post! Appreciate it!
@TKG83: Yup, it would be from the bridal salon that I bought my dress from.. I’m just trying to budget the best I can rather than just pay whatever price I’m told the first time around, as I usually tend to do… I’m just thinking that $300 for tulle attached to a plastic clip seems a bit high. Especially when you factor in tax and shipping. Yea, I think I’m going to check out etsy.
@sheepandbear: Sure do! Here ya go:

@Diamond84: I bought my veil from etsy! I don’t have a pic because it starting collecting black dog hair the second I took it out… So I promptly put it away. I got a plain edge cathedral style veil. It came with a plain plastic comb. It’s very simple and unembellished, but seems well made and looks very pretty. It came from ‘A Busy Mother’ and cost around $35 plus shipping to Canada for a total of around $50.

@Brielle: I completely agree with this advice. This is what I did for my wedding.
@Diamond84: I really love the detail!!! Floral sashes are the best!

@sheepandbear: Thank you!! I love the flower detail on the sash. And the back ties into a bow that flows down which I also love. Completely goes with my romantic, garden theme decor.
Thanks for the replies everyone! I’m gonna go back to the salon to try on the dress with a cathedral veil as soon as I can.
