That is a lovely dress and looks similar to mine. I am wearing an elbow length chiffon veil with minimal beading. A veil that is too elaborate would take away from the dress and be OTT

@aleachay:  An elbow length veil would be nice, but I’m kind of thinking getting married in an cathedral, I would do a longer veil, maybe cathedral length?

First of all, I would suggest a finger tip length instead of an elbow length. The elbow length might cut you’re back at the most interesting point (the deep v), where as a thin finger tip veil would delicately let the back of your dress shin through. I heard once that cutting a veil anywhere abovethe hip makes you look wider (which I don’t think many brides want).

I also love a long cathedral veil, and that would accomplish the same goal as the finger tip veil. Personally, I prefer a light and simple veil. If it were me, I’d leave the lace to the dress. Good luck!
