I think it depends on your style and the wedding you are having.  I could envision a birdcage veil with this, but would probably opt for a raw-edge cathedral veil…it won’t be too much tulle, don’t worry!

Definitely a cathedral veil!

I agree with @babycakes24, I could probably see a birdcage veil with this as well, though I am partial to birdcage veils 🙂

I am not a fan of birdcage veils so I would personally steer clear of that. I would do a finger tip tulle veil with some volume to it!

I think you could go fingertip (for a more modern look) or cathedral/chapel depending on how long your train is. Either would look gorgeous!

Hard to see the details of dress, but it appears to be a modern ruching type of dress, and the only detail I see on the back is the crisscross of the, what I call “boPeep” strings. So, here is what I am thinking, depending on venue:

A multi layered veil, 2 lengths.  I would have either a piped edging or fabric edging, to define and frame you.  You can also include some random detail scattered across the veil, as the dress appears to be minus any bling, I think.

I also don’t really like bird cage veils. I think a cathedral length veil would be great with your dress, maybe raw edge. Lace would be beautiful too especially since there isn’t any lace on your dress to compete with

I can always love a nice cathedral veil with fitted dresses. .. it always looks great.  However,  I can actually really see this dress with something modern and fun like a two tier bubble veil also.  Just depends on your personality and the style of your wedding.  Love the dress!

Lovely dress, I’d say a Cathedral veil so that it doesn’t cut the dress in half where it trumpets out.

@stokiebride:  good luck and have fun!  the cathedral veils with scattered crystals are gorgeous…that would add a touch of bling, while not going overboard so you could do it up with earrings and a nice bracelet.
