I have my dress and shoes, but now I need accessories! I definitely want a cathedral veil and originally thought I just wanted a raw edge, but I’ve seen some beaded edge veils that are very pretty, but obviously more money. I’ll be wearing a simple pearl necklace and have to figure out earrings or a bracelet still (also taking suggestions on those). I always loved how Kate Hudson looked in Bride Wars, but I’m not sure if the raw edge will get lost or look funny since the bottom of my dress is all tulle. Which veil would you choose for this dress a raw edge cathedral or a beaded edge cathedral?

Beaded Edge Veil (I don’t have a picture of the exact veil, but it would be similar to this):

Everything you have chosen has such simple elegance that I think the raw-edge veil would go very nicely. That’s what I’d pick if it were me 😉 Absolutely love those shoes and your dress is very beautiful!

Raw Edge – it will go better with your dress.

My SIL had a beaded-edge veil and she recommended it to me. She said it will look really nice in close up pictures to have a little something on the veil.

Since your dress has a raw edge and limited embellishment, I think the raw edge veil looks best. LOVE the shoes and cathedral veil BTW!!!

I think raw edge is a bit of a trend right now that stems from lots of raw edged fabrics in dresses. While very nice and appropriate for an ornate dress, I think your “look” can handle a beaded edge veil, and it would echo the beading in the waist of the gown. Try some of each on when you go for fittings!

Hi everyone, I wanted to give an update since I hate when I find these threads and then don’t know what people decided. I went with the beaded edge veil, ultimately decided why not. I don’t have any good pictures of it, but will try to remember to post some after my wedding!
Thanks for the help in making my decision!
