Below are pictures of my dress. I didn’t purchase that exact bolero, but I do have one similar that I was planning on wearing into the reception. However, I could possibly wear it for the ceremony if I wanted to… As of now, I was planning on just being strapless for the ceremony though. What type of veil would you suggest? Long? Short? Blusher? Please help. I really want to wear one, have no preference and am so confused!

Hmm, well the dress is just amazing, and although I am just as indecisive when it comes to what I will be wearing on my own head, I think maybe a birdcage style would look nice if you’re going to wear the bolero. Something like this http://www.etsy.com/listing/73251063/as-seen-in-polka-dot-bride-champagne?ref=sr_gallery_24&ga_search_query=birdcage+veil&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=ZZ&ga_search_type=all

Thank you, What do you think without the bolero? I am open to purchasing 2 veils and swapping them throughout the night… it is tough! 🙂

That dress is gorgeous on you! What a great silhoutte for your shape! I think a fingertip length or chapel length veil would be best with this dress for the ceremony and then once you enter the reception you can take your veil off and wear the bolero. The bolero and veil may be too much to wear all at once.
I would go with a very simple veil with a plain edge or a rolled edge. You don’t want the veil to take away from the dress, you want it to compliment the gown.
Congratulations and Good Luck!

I think that a birdcage veil would be really pretty with that!

The dress is beautiul indeed and you look very pretty!!! I’d say birdcage or a minimal elbow veil.

Without the bolero I’d agree than an elbow length veil would look very nice. Great idea on swapping veils out! You can gorgeous ones that are pretty inexpensive and achieve different looks on that one day. That’s inspired me!

I think an elbow length would be gorgeous with your dress! Veil with no bolero, then bolero to switch it up!

Yes, im usure about chapel vs. elbow… but most people think elbow. Should I wear a blushed in front of my face?

@Ms. Stallion: I think that would look very classy. Maybe try with and without if you are able to at a fitting and see which you like best?
