AH!  That’s my dress, too!  To be completely honest, I went to the craft store, and bought some tulle in Diamond White (it cost $1.47 for a yard) and took it to the seamstress at the bridal store and asked her to make me a veil.  It is costing me $20.  So, I would go with diamond white to answer your question…when it’s all folded up, it doesn’t look like it will work, but when you take one layer against the organza lining, it matches perfectly!

I have the same dilemma, I can’t decide on a veil!! I definitely think you should stick to fingertip length, so you don’t take away from all of the detailing on your dress. I like the look of the pencil edge for the veil, which is enough to complement the dress but doesn’t clash or take away from any of the detailing on the front or on the back. Pencil edge veils are gorgeous and timeless. I personally like the look of ivory veils better – white can wash you out – but I’ve heard that the veil doesn’t necessarily have to match the dress.

You could probably make yourself a veil for less than $20 – that’s what I’m planning on doing! – but if you don’t have a few hours to spare then Etsy has lots of beautiful veils.

Btw you look beautiful!!! The dress is so flattering!

Oh, and I probably wouldn’t go with the ribbon trim…it might take away from the beautiful beading on the dress!  Since the dress is so intricate, I would say the simpler, the better. 🙂

I made my own veil with tulle from the fabric store, it was really easy.  It’s a blusher/fingertip combo and came out really nice! I even added little crystal details to the blusher (not much, I didn’t want to detract from my dress either) and all together the materials cost me about 9 dollars.  (I used a coupon!) I made mine of the ‘white’ tulle at the fabric store and my dress is ‘ivory’ but they all look the same to me.

@mtrl01:  what’s wrong with the edging? Do you mean you added lace to it and it doesn’t look good, or it’s just not laying correctly?

@mtrl01:  I did something terribly painstaking to get my cut right (on the blusher, on the backside I didn’t care)  I drew and cut out the angle I wanted (I think off some kind of serving dish too) and then laid the tulle over a sheet of paper and section by section I sharpied a line along my pattern onto the tulle.  Then I took a tiny pair of scissors and cut just on the inside of that sharpie line.  

Did you use a pattern?  That can help a lot too to gauge a good line.  Also to get a ribbon on you’d probably have to sew, tulle doesn’t have a lot of substance and it makes gluing anything to it very difficult.  =/
