Honestly I would do a cathedral length single tier raw edge veil in the same color as the lace. I think a chapel length would look funny because it would stop before the train ended. If you want a shorter veil I would go with waltz or fingertip length.

I second the cathedral length. Your dress needs some drama, I woul prefer cathedral but a bubble veil or maybe cathedral mantilla might look stunning as well. Do you have the chance to try on your dress with different veil styles?

 Grace Loves Lace has a beautiful silk chiffon veil–it might look cool to keep it all the same fabric (however I’m not sure how sheer the veil is in person). https://graceloveslace.com.au/shop/gabriela-veil/

Otherwise I would do a simple tulle veil

On the runway your dress was paired with a plain veil that has multiple layers. I like it because it adds that little bit of drama you talk about without lace. Here’s the pic:link

 

I also think a  drop veil would be gorgeous with your dress.

Also, if money is an issue, a simple tulle veil would be really easy to DIY!

Hi Sophielle!

Congrats on finding a dress at White! I’m a White bride, too 🙂

I bought a sample at their Toronto store and placed an order for a veil at the Montreal store. Like you, I prefer a simple raw edge so I ended up with a cathedral length raw edge veil by Laura Jayne. It’s a drop veil with a blusher (can be worn back for volume) and you can easily pair it with sparkly hair accessories or statement earrings.

So nice to see another Montreal bride on these boards 😀

sophielle:  I had a Laura Jayne raw edge cathedral length veil, 2 layers – it was a stunner and worth every penny. She makes such beautiful veils. She actually custom made mine as I was really wanting raw-edged and cathedral length and for whatever reason I was having trouble finding it.
