- Wedding: November 2011
I was wondering if I could get some advice from you about veils.
My dress is very simple: strapless chiffon floor length empire line and our wedding is black tie so I would like a bit of sparkle on the veil for during the ceremony and reception because I’ve ben told the dress is too delicate to accessorise.
I am getting my veil from the Wedding Veil Shop online and am going for a 96″ length (to give a bit of a train), cut edge, single tier veil. I was wondering if anyone had experience of what crystals I should add so that they don’t appear as black spots? The site sells clear and AB crystals or diamante and I was wondering which you think would be best. I (think!) I’ve decided on a “falling stars” pattern.
Also, I don’t know whether to go for a 72″ or 54″ width – I don’t want anything too poofy and I’m pretty small so my instinct was the 54″, but I’d also like the veil to be visible from the front, although not draped over my shoulders.
Sorry for all the questions, I’m really confused so any help would be brilliant.
Thanks so much.
