I am on the fence about wearing a veil with my Mikaella 1508 dress. It has a lot of ruffle detail in the back and I think a veil will cover it up. We are having a ceremony on the roof of a hotel and then pics at the beach. I think a hair clip or feather of some sort will do just fine. I know my Fiance would like me to wear a veil but I just dont want to take away from the dress. I will still look bridal right?

I don’t know if I’m biased or not but when else but your wedding day can you wear a veil??? It’s one day that you get to be a bride- and I think that screams veil! You can get away with a fascinator to most dressy occaisons.. Even if you were to wear the veil down the aisle and for the start of the photos and then have the fascinator/ clip for the ceremony- and it’ll be heaps less heavy and allow you to show off the back of your dress! Best of both worlds really! Good luck with your choice, you’ll look stunning either way!

There are some beautiful shoulder length veils that wouldnt cover up any of that amazing detail.

I voted veil… but honestly you could do either. Have you tried your dress with any veils they might have in the bridal shop just to get a feel for how it’ll look? There are different lengths and styles to choose from. Since you mentioned that your Fiance would like it, I wouldn’t rule it out without trying a few and see if you could have some pictures taken for reference:) I personally have been leaning toward birdcage veils myself. You could also keep in mind that a lot of brides only have a veil on during the ceremony and take it off afterward for the reception & pictures.

If you get a simple, very sheer veil it won’t cover up anything. Long veils+beach make for some great pictures.

i vote veil because like missjamie143 said, when else will you get to wear one? i plan on wearing a long one for the ceremony and a shorter one for the reception. i love the look of veils. you can always get a shorter veil that’s not too full with a cut edge. i love the look of long skinny drape veils placed just under the updo. pics of veils blowing in the wind are just so pretty.
