Hey bees! So I’m pretty sure I found my dress (still waiting to here my mother’s opinion but pretty set on it), and I’m unsure of whether to go with a veil or crown. The dress is BHLDN’s “Olivia” gown. It’s kind of an ivory color with a slight pinkish tone to it, which makes me nervous about finding a veil to match. I’m not sure what color veil to be looking at, nor what style. I’d kind of prefer wearing a veil because heck, I’m only getting married once, and there’s something beautiful about having your fiance lift it at the ceremony. Plus it makes for interesting pictures.
That said, I’ve also considered a flower crown in lieu of a veil. My theme is garden inspired and we are getting married in a garden so it’s fitting.
So what would you pick? And if it’s a veil, can someone please steer me in the direction of a style or what color might match my dress. Or perhaps you know of something that’d work better than either of these two options.

@bapbap: I like the flower crown or Juliet cap for this gown

I think something long and lightweight like the third pic they have would look awesome. Gorgeous dress.

@babypearls: Second the Juliet cap veil suggestion – I think that would really compliment this dress

I would have definitely worn a flower crown if I had a different dress but mine had flowers all over it so I didn’t want it to be a flower overload. But you should totally wear the flower crown.

Not many dresses can be paired with a floral crown but yours certainly works! Why not veil for ceremony and flower crown for reception best of BOTH worlds if it fits in budget.
I also like bapbap’s option!

@scarsbee: That’s what I was thinking, why not do both? You could take off the veil and just leave the crown on for the reception.
