@august_bride2bee:  Can you post a picture of the back of your gown? Based on the picture you posted, if you want an embellished veil I would get one that is either elbow length or fingertip length.  If you want a cathedral length veil, you should get a plain tule veil so that it doesn’t take away from the dramatic bottom.

@august_bride2bee:  What a gorgeous dress! The train is breathtaking! I think a simple but blinged out belt would really make the dress have some pop to it! As for the veil I would either go with a simple cathedral length (if that is your thing) or a fingertip veil with some embellishments on it like some beading or pretty floral embellishments. I think a cathedral length veil might overwhelm the dress since the train is so gorgeous! And also accessories like a necklace and some nice drop earrings would really amp the dress up a bit. 

 

Just as some examples. πŸ™‚

@august_bride2bee:  I would definitely look into a finger tip veil if you plan on wearing a veil. I found those earrings on Dillards but I think they sell them at Macy’s and Nordstrom’s (or other similar department stores). The best part is that they aren’t too expensive! πŸ™‚ 

Here is a link to Dillards:

Good luck with the accesories search! And don’t worry I am clueless too with what I am doing with my dress!  πŸ™‚

I agree with the PP about the fingertip veil. Though I’m fond of cathedral length veils, your train is stunning, and the fingertip will let the train shine.
