I finally decided on my dress – I’m going with the La Sposa Laurel. Unfortunately, I couldn’t take pictures in the store, so I’m using the official model shots as a guide (however she looks about 8 feet tall in it and I’m 5’6″, so the bottom seems to flair out more on me). Also, I’m going to be chopping off the bow from the front and just having a sweetheart neckline.
I know that I can wait to figure out the veil situation once the dress comes in, but I’m excited and can’t stop myself from looking now! I don’t think a cathedral length veil will work with all of the detail on the bottom/back of the dress, but an elbow length could be good. I’m torn between all the options: cut edge, pencil edge, birdcage, or just skipping a veil altogether. We’re not having a church wedding – it’s either going to be in a garden or close to the beach (we’re booking this in the next two weeks).
I’d love to hear your opinions, especially from brides that ordered the same dress. Thanks!

I don’t know what these different names for veils are. I think it should be simple, shorter, to flatter your dress. Definately NOT cathedral. BEAUTIFUL DRESS!

If I were you I would go with an angel cut veil, it SO fits your gown!!!!

I think that as long as the veil ends before the tiered skirt starts, you’d be fine. As for the edging of the veil, I would go with something light, since that’s how the bottom of the dress feels. Either a very thin pencil edge or a simple cut edge would both work.

Beautiful dress! I would go with an elbow-length very simple veil, either with slight edge or no edge. 🙂

I love bircage veils with mermaid sort of dresses! So vintage chic!

what a beautiful dress! I agree with the comments above, something simple like the edge veils as it would definetly go well with this dress. Good luck in deciding!
