When is a veil too much?

Wow, both the dress and veil are gorgeous! Is there a way you can try on the veil with the dress before you make a decision?

My sense is that they would both work together. The detail on the veil seems to compliment the detail on the bust of the bodice and the general pattern throughout the dress. I think it would frame your face in such a way that it wouldn’t distract from the dress. Waist/finger tip is definitely the length to go with; cathedral would just get lost against the skirt.

I would go ahead and order a duplicate. If you hate it, you can always sell it. I think the biggest gamble is the gold tones in the veil; do you want the gold tones to stand out against the dress, or do you want everything to match? Because if you’re going to have a duplicate made, you could always ask the seamstress to match the color of the dress. But, personally, I think the gold gives an extra element of glamour. Good luck!

Have you tried a veil that had a simple edge to it? It would change the whole look if there wasn’t lace along the edge.

Wow! Both the dress and the veil are gorgeous. I think you could get away with them both if you kept all your jewellery really simple.

i’m on the fence about this one. I think it could be a bit much. It could look nice if your jewellery is really plain, but i think you would look more elegant with a simpler veil.

I think that would be a bit too much. I would opt for a simple plain veil so as to not take away from the dress.

What a stunning gown! Personally, I am not a fan of heavy lace/beaded applique detail around the face. I think it looks distracting, to be honest. With that gown, I would go for a longer veil (chapel or cathedral) and add applique to the bottom of the veil, keeping the area around the face plain, and instead add a jewelled comb.

Have you bought your dress yet??

I have this dress!! I’m not going to wear it bc I decided it was too flashy for me. But I’m selling it for 250 plus whatever it cost to ship.

I Love them both they are gorgeous!  I think you should go with elbow length or waist length for the veil. I think they will look beautiful together.

kaitybee:  That veil is gorgeous, however, you don’t want to take away from the detail in the dress.  I think you would be better off with a simpler veil.  But that’s just my opinion!

Where do you plan on wearing it?  Like the picture or lower on your head?
