Wonderful site. Im totally hooked already. And everyone here seems oh so sweet 🙂 Could someone advise me on my gown? I am planning to wear the Pronovias aramis gown. Should I wear the mantilla veil with it or just a plain veil? I will be leaving my hair down.
I have attached the catalogue picture of the gown with a mantialla veil. It looks oh so divine, however Im not sure how it would translate in real life? The gown itself is completely lace, would it be too much lace? Or do you think a plain veil would highlight the gown more. Veil is 144 inches cathedral style.
Please please, any advice is appreciated

I think the mantilla veil is beautiful with this dress. The dress doesn’t have a very long train, so for the ceremony the cathedral mantilla veil would make it look very grand. I don’t think it would be the same effect with a plain veil. If you’re worried about too much lace you could pick a veil with thinner lace around the edge. (Although I think the veil pictured is gorgeous!) Also, congrats on finding your dress!! 🙂

Thanks for the advice.
Sorry for the bad pictures, I just ripped them from google images. I love the way the veil looks in the pictures, I was not too sure whether it would look good on me. Yes there isnt much of a train, my wedding will be during the rains so dont want too much of a mess. I have curly ringlet hair so I thought mantilla veil would look romantic and whimsical. Thanks once again. But I was going through the forums and a lot of people said lace on lace is no-no. mantilla veil looks best on a simpler gown so I was not so sure.
Can you tell im oh so confused?

The mantilla is gorgeous….. I’ve heard all sorts of things about lace on lace, such as only acceptable if it’s the same lace…….. – bonkers……..
Your dress is so unique and I just think that a plain veil is too generic … a matilla will make it a bit more special….. 🙂

I’m going to have a mantilla veil with my lace dress. I love them too much not to. I think it’ll work just fine… the one in the picture looks wonderful!

I think the lace veil looks great with this dress! Not too much lace at all!
