Are you doing the dark sash with it?

Because my first thought (and you may be more traditional than this) was a steel colored birdcage to match the sash.  I’m well aware that I’m more edgy than most people, so I understand if it wouldn’t work for you… but it would be stunning!

Gosh I love that dress. Have you looked at pics of Shanna Moakler’s dress? She wore a large black hair flower and her dress had a very similar feel to yours. It was ML with a black sash and all lace also–

Also if you go here:

and scroll down you will see tons of pics of her hair and dress. I just couldn’t figure out how to put them in my post!

That dress is fab, lady! I think a funky birdcage would work.

There are 3 etsy sellers for veils that I love, 

This one is the more edgy: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6127466

This one I just discovered and I think I would have bought a variation of the #In full bloom veil”, but I already have a gorgeous veil: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5932884

And this is a bit more traditional, but still modern and very romantic: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5287560 , has very good reviews too.

I´m sure they can make you a custom steel colored veil to match the sash if you decided on that. It would look beautiful!

I definitely think a birdcage would be the way to go.  I love the idea of incorporating the color of the sash too–a modern twist.  I almost picture something like what Miss Lightening is wearing for her photos (check her recent posts).

You’ve got a lot going on at the waist so I’d keep the veil simple in terms of beading, lace, etc. Depending on how you wear your hair (and with that stunning back I’d go up!) I’d do a birdcage or a very long and simple cathedral veil.

LOVE that dress. I almost bought a similar Enzo belt for a Marisa dress.

Actually I was thinking that a super long cathedral length veil would be beautiful. One similar to Mrs. Quiche’s would be beautiful IMHO.

what about a long veil with lace just on the edges, but have the lace be a darker color? or have some kind of hair accessory in there WITH the veil that is darker?  I don’t think a long veil would be too much – you have a fancy dress.  Now if you were going to the grocery store, i’d recommend you be a little more conservative. 🙂

I LOVE Enzoani dresses!  Diana is a beautiful gown!  I think of a birdcage veil when I see that gown – I think it’s the way to go.
