    First, your gown is gorgeous!  I think the idea of wearing your Mom’s veil would be great.  I would only wear it without the lace cap and find another barrett or clip to attach it to that would compliment your gown.  However, if the veil competes with the beautiful lace on the back of your gown or the colors don’t match, I’d wear something different.  I think a headband with ribbon and bling would be really pretty with your gown, your hair, and the belt.

    Agreed. I love the idea of wearing your mom’s veil, but the cap is throwing me off. If you were going all out vintage, I would say wear it as is, but your dress definitely has a modern fit. Good luck- you look beautiful!

    My mom’s veil looks very similar and had a cap and it was super easy to get taken off!  They put it on a comb and I’m wearing it that way.  I love that I could reuse it, but I hear you about the cap, those are tough haha!

    I am going to be SO totally blunt. You have a gorgeous head of shiny blonde hair and a backside to die for. Honey – I wouldn’t cover that up with a veil no way-no how!! LOL It looks SO fresh and modern WITHOUT the veil. Sorry Mom!

    @tampabride1006:  You’re quite welcome!  Now, that I can see other pics of the veil, I’d probably say “nay”.  It looks as if the lace may compete too much with the lace on your gown.  Good luck deciding!!

    I have to be blunt too and say I agree with the above comments. Your dress is so beautiful and the with the lovely lace detail at the back I think adding a veil would be a mistake. It is a lovely veil but I don’t think it works with the dress.
